  1. I always had this same issue with my old MH unit. It would go through that same process of throwing the vinyl out the back! The only way I could resolve that was to just do a RESET before each job, and then go offline & place the vinyl + carriage where I wanted, and set origin. If I tried to run back-to back jobs without the RESET first, it would kick the vinyl out. It's something in the circuitry; you have a warranty, take advantage of it. USCUTTER should be able to either replace the entire machine or just send you a new MB.

    Need help recreating

    Damn, that took all of 40 minutes, incredible. Mark-s, you're a beast. Bonus points if you name the SOFTBALL typeface! And a Gold Star if you can pinpoint that "C" in the CB logo.

    New Business Laptop

    HaHa, Skeetz, the troll gotcha! By the way, in case anyone really is interested, pricing on an older Dell with XP has gone up to around $100 - $150. https://www.ebay.com/itm/234301814020 (with legacy serial port DB9) These older laptops are fine for powering a cutter, especially if you want to use the actual COM port (instead of USB). And while we are here --- this is the link for older (unsupported) software which has all the functionality required to run cutters and provides basic design capability. http://www.uscuttersupport.com/downloads/Software/SignBlazer/signblazer_setup.exe

    Cutting Flock for Rhinestone Jig Pattern

    I seem to recall that Sure-Cuts-A-Lot has rhinestone template capability. That being said, I don't believe the material (flock) is going to cut properly with the MH, although it theoretically can be done with a carrier sheet, I suppose. Since the O-P already owns the machine, it's not a big deal to test it out for themselves. I still say No. The MH is a vinyl cutter, for all intents & purposes.

    Newbie here

    Howdy. Right around Christmas, we get a lot of newbies, as Santa brings thousands of people their new cutters and other equipment. In these tough times, having a cutter setup for either a hobby or business, makes good sense. How are you using the knowledge provided? What have we offered that gives you some ideas?

    need to replace pinch roller

    What is wrong with it? Just the wheel itself? Those are replaceable.

    Maxiumum Number of fonts?

    You've accumulated too many, for sure. I recall first installing SignBlazer with the preloaded 200 fonts, and felt that was a lot to deal with!

    Vinylmaster Cut adding weed lines

    You can just draw them, straight lines wherever you want. That's how I do weed lines in SignBlazer, simply create them from scratch using the Polyline tool. (two nodes, start & finish)

    What cutter do I need?

    If you are involved with a project that requires 10,000 pieces, I have no doubt that sending this to an outside production company would be preferable. (is that 10,000 rectangles, total, = 1250 sheets x 8, or 10,000 sheets x 8 rectangles per = 80,000 ?)
  10. This is what I would do, as a troubleshooting process: 1. De-register the software 2. Uninstall it from your computer 3. Restart your computer 4. Run the installer again, place a fresh copy onto your computer (update if it asks you to) 5. Re-Register the VM. 6. Let us know what happens

    kepner, you are necrothreading; not a good way to "introduce" yourself to this Forum. Post in Introductions and say hi, maybe? What are you doin' with your cutter? What's your primary interest? Experience? etc.
