    Origin Point Just Don't Understand Please Explain

    " you cut a square and triangle up in the right hand corner " That was a test cut I did sometime before cutting out THE. " "Do some test cuts with the test feature on the vinyl cutter and get your blade depth correct." I bought a A3 size cutting mat I'll use some of the offcuts, cut into small squares and mount them on the mat and use the test feature to get the blade depth correct. Thanks.

    Origin Point Just Don't Understand Please Explain

    I set the origin point close to right hand corner of vinyl but why is word, THE, so far, almost 4 inches from the side of the vinyl? As you can see, is quite a lot of waste. That said I did cut off the larger section, as might come in useful for future projects. A couple of small areas had a perforated cut line, should I increase the cutting pressure to avoid this? I have 4 words to cut out, the height of word THE including line squares is 29cm the width of vinyl roll is 60cm. If I reduce the size of the line up squares and the height of THE I can still maintain an effective word size. I could then maximize the economical use of the vinyl by have one word under the other. I'm wondering about boarder size or whatever I should leave to do this and still not sure about this setting of the origin point in regarding setting up to cut two words parallel to each other?

    Well I think I might be making progress, a little, anyhow. I cut the word THE ok. Though the position on the vinyl could have been better, for economical of use of the vinyl. Speed I thought I set at 300 but display is showing 260, pressure I set to 100. Test cut when peeled it of,f had cut into backer but looks minimal. From reading up a bit, think will need to play around with test cuts quite a bit to get very good, near perfect results. One reason I got the cutter was for cutting sandblast resist, stencil masks. No way would I be able to afford a 24 Graphtec. In past have read about disadvantage of a stepper motor compared to servo. Though that said, finding out a little more about vinyl cutters, slower and faster speeds for different size projects with varying degrees of intricacies etc, other types of angles on knives. I'm starting to think I can get perfectly acceptable accurate cuts with my Seiki 720T, even though it has a stepper motor, perhaps reducing number of nodes in design would make for a smoother accurate cut too. Is quite late here in the UK 20:53 and not had supper yet and a few other things to attend too. On Saturday,will have a go at weeding out the word and mounting it and forum can see what I've done. Cheers, Peter.

    OK thanks.
  7. I have a new Seiki T series cutter and using scal 5 I've Googled quite a lot trying to understand about the origin point but I'm still very much mystified. I seem to find conflicting views.Can't get my head around it I can't find any info specific to the Seiki or a clone. So far I understand how to go offline can go offline ( leave button ) and move the carriage x/y left and right. That said I don't understand how to position the carriage in relation to the text I want to cut. I've read the origin point.... doesn't specify where the cut starts so even more confused. Any help on clearly demystifying this would be greatly appreciated. Oh I've just read, putting one of rollers inside the vinyl roll Is this correct? Until I read that I thought the roll just sat on top of both the rollers. Thank you.

    So I roll the vinyl up as tight as I can?As tight a roll as I can get it and make sure is taught when I do the initial feeding in? Thanks.

    I'm still not sure how I go about squaring up the vinyl to the machine?

    OK so just push it down but not hold it continuously down? Would having the US cutter driver instead of the correct Seiki caused it to chew up the vinyl like it did?

    Sure thing, thanks

    No I didn't do that, should I hold it down continuously, same with send a pattern to the cutter? Why must I do this? As it did the test cut OK?

    It had Seiki T series not T720 only option was to select T series and I deleted the US cutter choice.
