Default Vinyl Cuts and Templates for Custom Heli Stickers or Decals

I have a Roland Stika 15. Attached is a zip file, that contains .CST files for the Roland CutStudio software.

It would be awesome if we could all contribute other cuts as well. I have an Adobe Illustrator CutStudio plugin, so any format AI supports, I should be good. Perhaps others can post what there Vinyl cutter supports, so we know what to upload.

Hope someone can get some use, and save someone some time. Enjoy!

The software I use:


Samples of what is in the .zip file (Requires Roland CutStudio):








Here is a cut that I stuck on my EEE PC:


Here I used the Vinyl Cuts for painting a custom canopy.


Here we created Vinyl Cut for our Store RF demo station:

Hey brian i look at that zip package you uploaded you are aware the no one that does not have cut studio that is worthless too. you should re do it to a eps . most of the cutters use a vers works what will use a eps format i have a buch of software and equipment and the crt files are useless inless you have a hobby cutter atleast with a eps or a pdf the people can print ti out with a home printer and make there own masking . i will see if i can convert what you have done and make it usable to other people

Agreed! I wish cut studio would export out as EPS, but it doesnt. I will try to do some in AI, and post those. I posted some pictures, so people can trace those, to hopefully help.

Thanks for those templates Kustom. . . looks like they might come in handy!
For my canopy I'm ideally after things like pistons/gears mechanical type stuff almost a giger type theme, but abit more mechanical
What colours are best to use for that sort of thing? I presume some sort of dark gry over silver?
