    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

    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

    Cant cut any further

    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.

    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.

    why does this machine waste vinyl

    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 . 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,

    ce 6000

    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

    ce 6000

    when i go to cut a decal out it cuts into the logo itself. what did i do wrong and what setting do i need to fix?

    ce 6000

    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

    ce 6000

    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.
  22. livinloudgraphics

    ce 6000

    i click the color part and (uncut it)if thats how it is done. it also reads media at like 21.5 instead of 23.5 or 24 inches the width of the vinyl. looked at setting and the plotter screen shows the picture in orange
