## Cutting using a Vinylcutter
For my vinylcutter design, I created a star and attached it to my water bottle:

To obtain the above output, I followed several tutorials to learn more about Vinyl Cutters and the process:
1. [Roland® Vinyl Cutter Package]()
2. [How to Cut Vinyl Start to Finish with the Roland® GS-24 Vinyl Cutter]()
3. [Roland Vinyl Cutter Training](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFcAeMAyoUM)
At the Dassault Systèmes Lab, they have the [Roland GS24 vinyl cutter](https://www.rolanddga.com/products/vinyl-cutters/camm-1-gs-24-desktop-vinyl-cutter). This vinyl cutter is able to cut rolls, vinyl or other materials, up to 4 millimeters thick.
The nice thing about the Roland GS24 is that it measure the roll for you and it is quite easy to use. To make the star cut, I used Adobe Illustrator. The star design was already pre-loaded onto the computer. As a test trail, I decided to use the loaded image.
After configuring the vinyl cutter, I made my first cut and it came out perfect. Once I made the cut, I sticked it to my bottle.
Since I won't be using the vinyl cutter in my final project, I didn't want to spend too much time tinkering with it. With that said, I settled with the star on my bottle.

For the group assignment, my team and I were to characterize the lasercutter's focus, power, speed, rate, kerf, and joint clearance and document the work either individually or as a group. Above you can find our group documentation.
