    needing help with a font pls

    Race car numbers are notoriously hard to find. I usually end up tracing them. I did a quick search but found nothing either.

    Looking for help with this font

    I can't help but think I have seen that font. I tried a search but couldn't get a clean enough pic to find anything through FMF. Definitely been modified and possibly just a total custom like you say but the little swooped tails on the A and F look legit.

    Need to save svg format to pes format

    Yeah you will need the PE-Design software to start off with. I don't know if it will accept svg files but it looks like it will take eps files. You will import the file and then the program will let you use the file to turn it into a stitch file which is the pes file. The PE-Design program has to do that part. I am not familiar with that program but here are some tips I found on google. http://smallbusiness.chron.com/convert-illustrator-pes-format-52473.html

    I had a pretty good 1980 for a while. Oh wait you said vector....

    Force needs to changed on same project often

    In addition to adjusting blade depth your "design" does not change but the conditions in your cutting area might during the day. So what's probably changing is the temperature or humidity in the room causing some effect to your cut whether that be to the actual vinyl or possibly to the pressure sensing within your machine. I would also consider some high quality blades rather than the bargain bucket blades. A quality blade will cut with much less overall force and the adjustment will be less needed.
  9. Your three's look identical so it's something in the interpretation of the vector that is causing the issue would be my first thought. I don't know my way around the Graphtec plug-in but I have read about other programs doing this. Seems like a setting maybe "resolution" or " degree of precision" something like that. The program is not rounding off the radius' like it should be.
  10. I ran a P-Cut for several years. You are just experiencing tracking problems that are sort of the way it goes with that level of machine. The erroneous spot looks to be the start and stop point of that outer line.

    Backing up files

    I have a 1Tb SSD that I back up to and another 128gb that I just drag and drop my actual working files into every so often as a secondary option. I primarily function in .ai format so that's what I keep all my stuff in. Using VM or Flexi would definitely be worth the time and effort to save as something non-proprietary. I do similar to Dakota. I have one main graphics folder and within it are branches based on clients vs my own stuff and within each another tree of folders to help keep it from getting too messy. I find myself having to do an little reorganizing once or twice a year.

    HTV over reflective

    I do a fair amount of safety gear and have never even attempted to go over the reflective. That stuff is weird and slick so not surprised that it won't stick. I am careful to buy vests that have room to fit a left chest logo on somewhere (usually a pocket) and then do a large logo in the back between the stripes. The logistics definitely limit the available working space.

    Squiggly lines

    MH series seem to have more problems than any others. My suggestion although you won't like it is to carefully release your pinch rollers, pull that paper out, roll the cutter to the side and roll in a new Graphtec CE6000 and re-insert the paper. I crack myself up. On a serious note double check the baud rate and the driver set in VM to be sure you are running the correct machine. You probably already went through all that with tech support but sometimes it's something simple that everyone assumes was already checked. Not cool to have a new toy only to find it won't work.
  14. You know that market better than me. I looked up Redsail and it took me to the Saga cutters in a round about way. smj just be sure if you are looking at cutters that you understand the difference between the stepper motors and the servo. There are different grades of quality within the two as well. Some of the higher end cutters that still run a stepper are a better built stepper than the bargain barrel variety. I assume same rules apply to servo motors as well. You really do get what you pay for with cutters. Be sure and do your homework.
  15. Also if you are considering a Redsail cutter I am pretty sure they are just a rebranded Saga and should be the same thing as the Titan series that USCutter sells. If you go either of those I would suggest the servo motor variant.
