    Yeah, cutters are not like other electronics where a new/upgrade model comes out every year. There have been guys on the forums using the same cutter for decades.

    This ain't rocket science to create a similar design! Where's peoples' graphics skills? How come if humans are in contact with advanced alien civilization we have gotten dumber?!!!

    Yes, my cutter is 11 years old and I am still using it on an XP laptop. I have never had a problem with my cutter in 11 years.

    need pictures and info on which machine you are using and pictures so we can see what you are talking about - I am betting you are using a plotter and not a printer . . .

    The PrismCut is packaged with a 15" x 15" carrier sheet, but we sell larger carrier sheets that will work with the PrismCut if you need more room to work with. There aren't any hard limitations coded into the PrismCut that would prevent you from etching something anywhere the blade can reach, but practicality may be more of a factor here than it would be with Oracal 651. I expect that we will have more information about etching soon.

    They do, $190, for a 24"x10 yard roll. Not a bad price really. The price for reflective from anyone is going to be high, just the way it is. It's a specialized vinyl, not as easy to make, and not as much demand for it as normal vinyl. It does look good though.

    I generally take a peek at where I plan to buy said vinyl, decide my minimum order and shipping and then know my actual cost. I divide that up into a unit rate. More times than not I charge for the whole piece whether it is a yard or 5 or whatever and any left over stuff I sell off later for pure profit. If it's etch vinyl for instance I consider it a specialty vinyl order and list it that way on the invoice.

    for the newbies - you can cut regular vinyl or use sandbast mask and then sandblast your images on drinkware etc - came across these old ones today. all of these were done with regular 651 scraps and a 60 grit sand for the coase cristaline look.

    I have Signblazer downloaded on several different computers, never a problem. I don't cut with it, only use it to help people sometimes. I use Google, when you click on the the link, it does not open a page, it starts downloading right away, in my left lower corner,

    Without seeing the file, it's hard to tell. If it is not copyrighted, you could post it to look at.

    not than likely thousands of nodes - look closely at the nodes in the design.

    What are your plans to design? If you have no other vector programs you might try Inkscape (free) and if so SignCut will cut it's native SVG file as well altho the size may need checked I had some svg files come through mis-sized

    Just turn off your antivirus and download it. It is abandonware. The owner passed away several years back. You don't have to activate it anymore. It is unlimited now. Many many people still use it on here.

    A while back I had a chat with the Vinylmaster guy that said they was working on a mac version - hope they get it finished soon

    I will definately try the Port shirts next time.....but, I use Gildan mostly because I can always run to the Hobby stores to get "a few more" when my customers miscount or under count their needs.

    According to the Redsail user manual. When you click OK on the Control Panel of the vinyl cutter, that is your ORIGIN.

    If you want a better model then buy the Titan 3, that is the updated model. . Titan 1 is a stepper.No Laser. Titan 2 servo, manual laser. Titan 3 Servo with ARMS. Those are the models. Nothing to upgrade. 3 different models, each upgraded from the first.

    It WILL matter a little because if you turn on the software control you'll have to be sure the speed and force are correct. If you have those on the control panel I guarantee you have a way to zero out. It may be named differently but it's there. My budget computer I think I had to put in in offline mode to get to the right options. You should also be able to pre-feed your vinyl back and forth and move your cutter head over if you need to. When done getting it all set right you would zero out. Good luck and it would be great if you took the time to report back. You'd be surprised how often people don't and future searches just find a thread with questions and no final solution.

    Are you pushing the ORIGIN button on the cutter before you send the cut? You must, that is where the cutter starts measuring from. Most cutting software will go to the point of where the design was created first, then come back to finish the order. I use Flexi software and make large designs, 20" x 96"L. The cutter may travel 3 ft and start cutting, then come back to the front to finish the rest of the design.

    You have to purchase and activate the software. As long as the software is in demo mode it will cut lines thru the design.
