Can FLOW produce a proof showing the cut path, cut shape, route or crease , etc.?
Yes, tFLOW can produce a proof pdf that shows the cut paths/crease/route/etc for the approver to see. Depending on the product script, the cut path included with the file can be checked for width and color and adjusted to meet cutter specification, or an overlay can be applied, or lines can be generated by tFLOW based on preset distances from the edges.
Can tFLOW follow an image’s edges and offset the cut lines inside or outside the image’s art?
tFLOW is a PDF workflow. Adding cut lines to individual elements within the art isn’t possible. The uploaded file would need to come with trim lines already in place. An example would be cut lines for a vehicle wrap. However tFlow can add Cut or Contour lines to the resulting PDF files generated from the images uploaded. But since the PDF would be raster based instead of vector, it would not recognize specific areas to generate “vector” elements, from which a Cut Contour can be created. The Cut Contour lines would have to be predefined as a cutpath file, or using one of the page boxes (if there are page boxes available).
