      You stated..."to my knowledge i was basically purchasing a newer version of flexi software." 

     You did not purchase any Flexi software. You were allowed to download Graphtec Pro Studio, after you sent Graphtec your serial number for your model of Graphtec vinyl cutter. As a complimentary software to use. 

    You don't have the right to complain, when Graphtec gives you FREE software to use.  They are not offering you more than what is in the program and they don't owe you anything more than what is in the program.   The software is Not Flexisignpro and no one said you were getting Flexisignpro. This is a Graphtec version software    Just like UScutter does not offer the full version of Vinyl Master.And Scalp is the UScutter version.  Graphtec had been planning this software for quite a while( years) to be sold. But never could get it out for years.  It was behind in development. This was for sale for around $1000.and the Graphtec site sat like that for years, saying,  " coming soon."    So they offered this version to a few models as a complimentary software after you gave them your serial number for your model.   Just like Cutting Master 2, 3, 4, and Graphtec Studio are complimentary to use.   NOW if you want the full version, it is an upgrade,  which is  Graphtec Pro Studio Plus. It does have vector by color.   Go buy it. It's $500.  Or go find another software.    FlexisignPro 8.1 has been upgraded at least 6 times since it came out, and is no longer supported. 


    sweet im glad you clarify this, because i told my wife that we needed the full version not just one that came with the cutter. she said oh i read up on it and we can use it and it has what we need.  i would like to be right for once but guess what . As many of you all know thats a different ballpark

    For legal reason, I am not posting the actual link, but if you go to YouTube and put these words into the search, you should be able to find your answer.

    "graphtec pro studio vectorize"

    legal reasons?? hmm ok but i had flexi 8.1 pro and its basically the same but i just want to be able to do my distort and all of that back like flexi had. for some reason i had issues with it crashing and no help from sai now they are say cause they make it but i have to talk with a graphtec rep. like this is getting so annoying going back and forth i just want to get my stuff back like it was without the hassle of having to buy everything else. when it comes with the download would i need to buy any other software?

  3. I have a client that would like me to sponsor his racecar. What would be the pros and cons of doing said job. Also what do you think  the requirements of him if i did so?

    how many races he should attend, promotional items, sticker sales  and maybe a contract?

    i have never really done something like this so it would be a first on my part to discuss to him what would be required of him for me to sponsor his car . 

    thanks in advance

    Then use  It's FREE   The Graphtec Pro Studio was a gift/bonus from Graphtec for only a few Graphtec models. 

    i really would like to get mine working seeing as i know how to use flexi and its basically the same as graphtec and i just need to find out how to get it so i can color vectorize

    So what version of Flexi software did you purchase?  Any Flexi software has HELP at the top of the layout screen.  Go there and look for your topic/tutorials..  Follow instructions. 


    its the one that came with the cutter graphtec pro . im looking at the help menu but on my software it doesn't list color vectorize


  6. i recently purchased a  graphtec plotter, to my knowledge i was basically purchasing a newer version of flexi software. But im trying to trace a photo with multiple  colors,  when i try to trace it it all comes out black how does one redo it so it will come out the three colors needed? its like flexi a little but not understanding how to trace it like on flexi. i have read some of the instructions but to me its not clear because i can not find the right tools on the software

    Most users would move the vinyl over and use the end of the wide roller as the right hand side and the next roller over for the right side


    OH MY GOSH Been having a really bad off day today,  SHALL I SAY!  thank you very much. i just don't understand why the cant make the blue strip the entire way across, so it wont cause it to not cut and stop.  

  8. As i bought this new cutter i thought it was pretty decent. But how can i actually use the whole sheet of vinyl?  seems to me graphtec should figure this out instead of selling me a machine that i can not use the whole section to cut something. If there is a way how do i do this . when i align it (vinyl) and move it to location it basically tells me to move it to the blue section. 


  9. Anyone with a ce 6000 that has used the signtracker? if so how have you set it up? i see the different options, but when i do a quote its telling me that is almost $2k for a 20x 54 sign.  im learning as i go and my boyfriend is teaching me some. but i would like to explore more and try and figure these flexi quotes out

    I do not use a line - I put the vinyl in and jog it forward to see which way it runs - then adjust it and try again - there is no way you can get it loaded straight the way you are loading it.  I use the same method on my graphtec and my Roland printer

    there should be a line to follow is a nice plotter. maybe my roll isnt on my rollers correctly it may be off. ill check didnt notice it till it got to the longer part on the sign

  11. Does anyone know why this machine waste so much vinyl. and also it will hardly accept smaller pieces of cut vinyl it tells me to load media .. It acts ok on the small thing but when cutting long signs it gets off track EVEN WHEN i cut the vinyl straight across and set it correctly in the machine. my old pcut didnt have this much trouble when cutting a sign. it also bunches up on longer signs. I thought this was suppose to be a top of the line machine but yet it gets off track even with the sensors it has :huh: . it is being sold as a 24 inch cutter but cant not hardly cut up to 22inch wide because it gets off track so much. someone please help im about to return this thing,

  12. hello Everyone i have solved the problem with this issue. If you go to the cutting phase of the decals, you will see that it has a option about the layout. it the right corner you have to make the panel of the work area bigger so that it wont cut into the decal. The vinyl and the sensors were in the correct position the job size was just needed to the panel layout to correct this issue

    so is the issue the logo and additional lines cutting through it?

    or the cutter perceiving the vinyl to be narrower than it is?

    how large is the logo you are trying to cut?

    what software are you using to cut?

    the cutter is cutting the line as shown like its not fitting it its box as shown. seems like when the cutter reads vinyl its showing around 21.5 instead of the full 24. i understand you have the pressure rollers set on cutter to the blue lines but its will cut into the decal. im guessing because of the box. the whole decal is 22 long. also using the graphtec software it came with

    the width it is showing is the width between where you have the pressure rollers set - set em wider it shows wider but if you want to cut over 23" then turn the sensors off and take your chances running off the vinyl - that is fine as long as you are careful

    well dang that stinks what good is thus cutter if i cant cut to its full length? ill try the rollers again and see what it does.
