    On 10/07, Apple released their new version of Mac OS, Catalina, which now requires all programs to be written as 64bit applications and not have any dependencies on 32 bit libraries or resources. At the time of release, neither Sure Cuts a Lot 3 Pro nor Sure Cuts a Lot 4 Pro are 64bit applications and as a result have been rendered incompatible with the new OS. Since that point, however, Sure Cuts a Lot 4 Pro has received a 64 bit update. That said, please be aware that there might be a few hiccups using this upgraded version as the developer works to assure it is fully complaint with the new OS' standards. Thank you for reporting this issue to us, we have noticed there may be trend with the new 64bit version of Sure Cuts A Lot 4 Pro. In our testing, the blade offset appears to be off like the image above, and changing the blade offset does not resolve the issue. We are in touch with the developer to see if this issue can be patched. In the meantime, if the the need for a software is dire, you can upgrade your copy of SCAL4Pro to SCAL5Pro for $60, as it is currently on sale. We have not encountered these issues on SCAL5Pro, and you can find a link to that upgrade here on USCutter.com. Please let us know if anyone is encountering other issues with these newly released builds, and I'll follow-up here when a new version is released.

    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.

    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.

    I've gone 2 ways on my Windows computer - design computer that I built mainly for when I had the solvent printers are MSI mainboards with 8 core amd processor and the last one I got nuts and 64gb ram. Now on the cutter dedicated computer and my shipping computer I got ahold of a couple used HP USFF 8300 units with 8gb ram and put 250GB SSD in them - not a build but they are very energy efficient, quiet and fast for their purpose. my computers are on 24/7 all except on vacations. the cutter computer is not connected to the network in the house in anyway or the internet so files are transferred with a thumb drive - love newegg for my components

    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.

    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.

    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

    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)

    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

    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.

    You beat me to it, I was just notified that the etching tools were added.

    The etching tools are available now, they appear to be selling quickly, you can find it here: https://www.uscutter.com/PrismCut-Etching-Tool When it sells out, you can be notified when it comes back into stock by entering your email in the field on the page. The smaller PrismCut is on a different page. It is the P20, and it is available here. https://www.uscutter.com/P20-PrismCut-Vinyl-Cutter-with-WiFi-Design-Cut-Software

    yes that's exactly when I began having issues, shortly after the last update. then again I seem to take anything computer related like its a rocket science course, when in fact it was a super simple set up... I got it working after a week of frustration, high blood pressure, and the invention of tons of new cuss words....and now I shall cut away. …..thank you for responding …….y'all are the best!...

    Didn't stop to think ahead when I designed this....each shirt took 20 minutes to weed! No profit there! It's okay to use for printing but not for heat press work. Thankfully I only needed to make 3. Really don't want to use it again. LOL...Sue

    If your going to run a business, use the correct products or your going to lose your customers real fast. Uscutter sells R-tape paper transfer tape.

    No mention of which tape you are using. You should squeegee the transfer tape real well on top. But tape face down and peel the backing away from the decal. It makes a huge difference. Never lift the decal from the backing. I only use Main Medium tack paper tape. Many of my decals are very detailed also.
