    complete beginnerhelp needed

    I've answered your question in a different thread. Please just post. your issue once, and not in multiple threads, or just start one thread for yourself, and this purely volunteer forum will do our best to address your issue(s).
  4. Even though the test square is okay, it looks like your HTV is slipping during the cut. I would recommend you to try it with a tacky carrier sheet. I have to do that once in a while when I cut HTV. That would also prevent your vinyl from tenting and causing unnecessary scratches on the vinyl.
  5. Unfortunately, the CE6000 only has one position for the blade, so any perf cuts would need to be done with a carrier sheet.

    Block shadow in one piece?

    It would be helpful when asking for assistance, if you post what you have tried first, so that others can help you do corrective step, streamline the process, or confirm what you've tried is the only way to go.

    Block shadow in one piece?

    The simple answer is that you cannot just do the background without the actual text while it's still in font form. You need to convert it to curves (line drawing), then edit out the nodes you do not want.

    Metallic Mental

    how small is small? like skeeter said, go slow, use a 60* and do not be in any rush for it.

    Multiple color design.

    Sorry. Yes, either will work. It can also be done wet or dry, depending on what you're applying it to. Just make sure you use a paper tape if you do a wet application, and that whatever you're applying it to has a clean surface.

    Multiple color design.

    Depends on complexity, size, and personal preference. Trial and error.

    Some Files Not Opening

    What is happening, or not happening when you try to open them? Does it give you an error? Does it do nothing? Do it cause VM to stop responding? What version fo VM are you using? Was there a recent update in Windows 10? Is it VM files you're trying to open, or are you trying to get designs to open in VM?

    image print size help

    what is the size of the sheet you're trying to print your image on? did you check to see if there was some kind of page scaling feature that's going on in the print settings? (ie. scale to fit page, etc.).

    I'm curious, what program are you using to do your designs?

    pressure settings

    Glitter will require more force (which is a higher number), if you've done a force trial and error on any regular HTV vinyl, or any regular PSV vinyl, then you would have discovered those results. There is not specific force number that we can give to you (for any kind of vinyl) - we don't know what brand of vinyl you're using, we don't know the age of your vinyl, we don't know the condition of cutting strip, we don't know the age and condition of the blade you're using, we don't know what angle blade you're using, we don't know the design that you're cutting - whether is it's just basic shapes or big text, or if it's something intricate, etc. Yes, all of these things are factors. I know you don't want to waste your time and vinyl, however, we've guided you as best as possible and from this point forth, it really and truly is dependent on your specific machine (because same model machines can require different levels of force, but that's just how sensitive some of the parameters), so you really need to trial and error this on your own to get it dialed in. ... and there are times where it's just better to go over the design twice. Meaning, if you're not getting it to cut through just the first time around, it might require two passes. The trick to that is just get your design and do a copy and paste, but leave the second copy sitting on the original. If that's something that turns out to working better for you, then write that down. I have a running Google sheet that has my settings for which vinyl, using specific speeds, specific force, etc. It's not set in stone, because as the vinyl I have ages, those settings have to change. I don't go through inventory like a lot of other members here do, so it can get tricky, but at least it's a jumping off point and I tweak from there and update the numbers.
  16. If you're willing to splurge on a pro GF, you do know there are much better alternatives, right? I would encourage you to do your research.
  17. Well, unless he's like 3-years old or something. I am not ashamed to admit that I schedule dinner 'genius' appointments with the 6-year old niece, so she can show me cool things on my iPhone.

    Sandblasting Powdercoated Yeti's

    A trick that I would do for one of the local volleyball clubs, they were applying 651 to plastic water jugs, the type that is shiny and mildly textured. What seemed to help get a more last adhesion was to hit it with a hair blow dryer for a little bit, just to warm up the adhesive a bit. I noticed it stuck a little better through their washing and rinsing.

    Cleaning grit rollers ?

    Are you talking about the pinch rollers? If so, I do not recommend you use alcohol to clean them, and it can dry it out. I don't know if goo gone would leave a film. If you google, I'm sure you can find replacement pinch rollers, and those get changed from time to time.
  22. What kind of questions do you have? If you have successfully plotted with your pen, then it's just a swap out to the blade. The machine doesn't know which one you're using, it only knows the settings you have have configured, and the vector path(s) that you sent to it.

    mi plotter uscutter no corta

    I asked which version of the LP you had because the blade carriage looks different that mine - which is a 1st generation LP. Doing the text cut from the panel should not trigger the jagged circles to cut, the test cut for the 1st gen LP is a simple rectangle. Trying disconnecting the communication cable from the PC to the cutter. Start up the LP, and try running the test cut from the control panel again.
