    Been years since we did the show your face - we communicate all the time but nice to put a face to the screen name. a thread this morning about why we sold the printer made me think of the old thread we had here is why we sold the printer - cheap transatlantic trips - last year your could do the rome to san juan for $450pp now lets see your mug so we can put a face to the screen name

    Right! I didn't know a thing like this existed. I am so stoked it worked like a charm in about 5 seconds of adjusting. One test on a scrap piece of vinyl... Viola.

    60 degree works the best and can be used for all.

    Here 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 the blade tip out of the blade holder

    You don't really want all your files in a proprietary format anyway so it's time well spent whether you do it one at a time as you need or just set down and get them all done. Once you have them in eps they are shelf stable you might say and you can access them from lots of programs.

    If the cutter is recognized correctly, Windows will assign a comm port number. Open the "Run" dialog box by pressing and holding the Windows key, then press the R key ("Run"), Type devmgmt.msc and hit enter. Click on the plus next to the Ports list, there you should see something, I forget exactly what it is called but it is basically a USB to serial bridge and there will be a comm number assigned to it. In my case I use an ATEN USB-2-Serial adapter so in my case I see ATEN USB to Serial Bridge (COM1). I would then go into my cutting software and tell it to use COM1. If you do not know what you're looking at in the device manager screen, take a screen shot and post it here and we might be able to help.

    Thanks slice. On the print vs cut there is a right place for both. Print is easier but too many people get a printer and forget that sometimes cut is better for a situation. The past couple of years I actually started doing a lot more cut even though I had the printer because of the market I serve more it is better suited. One of the big factors in selling the printer though was my wife retires in 15 months and solvent printers get expensive when you go on long trips. This last years 3 week vacation really pushed the limits even though the printer did self cleanings. For many many situations cut vinyl is a better fit because of where it is going. Everyone thinks a printer is sexy And easy but there is more to it than that. As for direct to substrate at $80,000 those aren’t common for most users

    The starter kits are the cheaper vinyl to practice with. If you have never run a cutter, or used the software, lining up clients is probably not a good idea. It's not rocket surgery, but there is a learning cure to it. And I do not mean a week.
