  1. Today
  2. Sorry for the delay! Still encountering this problem. if someone can help me solve this, i will gladly pay them! Print and cut from graphtec studio (mac). design screen shows perfectly fine. when i get to the page where i send it to print, i can "preview it in viewer" on my mac without printing it yet. when i do that, and view it at actual size, i can see the errors. the errors are occurring when it processes the page right before the print options window appears. i tried adjusting margins, layout of the images across the page, leaving more empty space at the top and bottom seemed to help, but not much. same thing with the left and right sides as well. here is a screen shot of what its doing to the image. I'm putting one image, about 40-50 times on a 24" x 30" page. I attached the .gstudio file I'm using. It seems the wherever the errors are, they run either straight across the whole print, or straight up the print. sometimes both. it looks like the image shifts to the left and mis-aligns itself slightly. when i bring the image into graphtec studio, its brought in at 300dpi, one image. i then set the contour lines and duplicate the image to fill the page. then i add my reg marks. the images are almost always .png format with no background. hope this info can help someone help me figure this out! thanks in advance!!!! angelothekid_sticker.gstudio

    Titan 2 not cutting correctly

    We are still waiting for the new version to be published on Craftedge.com, but we have just been provided a link you can use to download the newest version before it is added to the site. Here is the link to the newest version of Sure Cuts A Lot 4 Pro for Mac. That version should resolve any issues with the blade offset setting you have been having, but let us know if you encounter any new issues, and we'll pass them along.
  4. Yes, I know how software licensing works AFTER registering it. Thanks for the recap, there. I haven't registered it, so, technically, I cannot legally transfer it. I wouldn't be selling the license as you seem to think. Contacting Graphtec would have probably lead me to the information (who the owner is). Like I said, I haven't looked at the software as it is not necessary in our environment.

    Cutting Mat/6mm acetate

    Thanks for your interest in the SC2, and for using the Forum! 6mm is a lot, and the thickest I found for acetate sheets on google was 3 mil, so I'm operating under the assumption that you mean 6 mil. I wouldn't recommend the SC2 for cutting acetate. It's one of our value hobby cutters that are really more geared to cutting vinyl and easier stuff like that. It's possible that it may work with some fiddling, but we're not confident enough to recommend or support using an SC2 for that purpose. For cutting acetate, we would recommend one of the Titan series cutters. Depending on how big you want the stencils to be, the Table Titan 1 can cut stencils up to 15" wide, and it's $549, which is only $100 more than the 28" SC2 at its base price. A carrier sheet would be a must in any case, though, but it looks like you already know that.

    Cutting Mat/6mm acetate

    6mm? That's nearly 1/4". I don't believe any vinyl plotter can cut something that thick. Now if you mean 6 mil, 0.006", that would might be doable.

    Not cutting correctly

    Make sure you have your blade depth set correctly. This is how. To start with, you should set your blade depth correctly, by taking the blade holder out of the machine, and firmly cut across a piece of scrap vinyl, you will be cutting. You should only be cutting the vinyl and barely a mark on wax paper backing, Adjust blade to get there, Then put the blade holder back in machine, and use the force of the machine to get there, same results, only cutting the vinyl and barely a mark in wax paper backing. You should just barely see and feel your blade tip out of the blade holder.

    Not cutting correctly

    that is unusual for a graphtec - which model do you have and what cutting software are you using?
  9. Good morning! So in using our cutting machine the cuts are not completing after each letter/ design. From where it starts, it is not going back and connecting the cut, leaving a few mm still attached. I hope this makes sense and someone maybe can HELP!!! Thanks
  10. The drivers to make the cutter compatible with your 'puter will be free from the Graphtec website. The program that you use to design and/or cut will be entirely up to you. SignBlazer Elements is free, although no longer supported. Don't discount it just because of that. It works, and it works well. Try that for now and see what you can do and get your machine cutting.
  11. Yesterday
  12. There are copyright laws on whether you can sell software or not. SAI copyright laws/rules are stated in the EUA. You don't own the software. (GraphtecProStudio) You have a license to "USE" it. Any type of transfers has to be written to SAI. It is stated in the EUA.
  13. Will I be able to use a cutting mat to cut 6mm acetate with the SC2? I cut a lot of stencils with that material now. Thanks.
  14. I never even looked at the software. I doubt I'm going to read the EUA.
  15. You should read the End user agreement. The software belongs to SAI, Not Graphtec https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5900b1a3c534a5aa8149a65c/t/59a5ed9dff7c50df36538b44/1504046493583/CP+Graphtec+Pro+Studio+%2B+Pro+Studio+Plus+License+Agreement.pdf
  16. My CE-6000 Plus came with three licenses for their software. If interested, I could check with Graphtec if I could sell a license to you.
  17. Hey y’all, my current needs are getting more and more weird! I have a very high volume item that is cumbersome on my plotters as the backing material won’t feed and is siliconized so it won’t stick to a carrier mat. My solutions seem to be due cutting or a flatbed plotter. Anyone have experience with kids cutting on a die cutter and a solution under $7k?

    "Show print tiling"

    That's what I needed. Thanks! ( I never messed with it there in fear of screwing my sublimation settings, I figured there'd be a setting somewhere else)
  19. Thank you for responding David. Please keep me posted ASAP if you hear back from the developer. I feel as if the upgrade to sure cuts a lot 5 should be free. I should not have to pay for an upgrade right off the bat. I ordered a pretty expensive cutter and software that is supposed to work with MAC and it doesn't work. If people are having trouble then sure cuts a lot 5 should be the software sent out with a new cutter. I do not run the most up to date version on my Mac. I still run macOS High Sierra. Again please keep me posted. Thank you

    Anyone have an idea on this font? I have tried all the font recognition stuff and can't find one with the slant on the B E and A.

    Beginner Question

    Graphtec, 60 degree cleancut blade and slow, vinyl with a lot of tack because that isn't a lot of adhesive left on those letters. best chance for something that small if it is a MH or redsail don't think you will be happy

    Beginner Question

    Follow Mz Skeeter's instructions for setting blade depth and then cut as slow as possible to start with, gradually increase speed to something you are happy with and still getting good cuts. Over cut and offset may need to be adjusted as well. What vinyl and cutter? they are not all created equal and if you have a MH or other low level cutter cutting 1/8" letters may simply not be possible.

    Have you followed Mz Skeeter's instructions for setting blade depth?
  27. You could try Inkscape if you need something in a pinch. Inkscape is not designed as a cutting program but it does offer that ability and is not terrible to use. As a hobbiest, I used it exclusively for several years for cutting.
