Parts of Roland
Here are all of the major parts of the Roland that you will need to know. Many of them are self explanatory in what they do.
The Roland is a very safe machine as long as you are smart about using it. The main danger existing is putting your hand near the machine while the machine is in motion. This is because the blade only protrudes from the head when it is cutting. Putting your finger/hair near the machine can cause damage to yourself. Also when you are changing the blade, make sure you have the machine off so it doesn't start moving while you are working on it.
Other than that, most of the danger comes from work outside of the machine, if you are cutting off the material using the knife guide, be sure your fingers are not near. Also when removing the trash cut vinyl, if you are using something sharp, don't be reckless and cut yourself.
We are currently building our training module for this tool. In the meantime, there are some very helpful videos that can help you familiarize yourself with the machine. The GS-24 User Manual is also very helpful for learning how to run the Roland and has step-by-step instructions on creating a cut.
Self-training via this wiki, user manuals, or other sources is encouraged but does not substitute for the online training module. Students found using this tool without completing the Canvas training module are subject to disciplinary action which may include termination of Sandbox access.
