  1. Could it be a memory problem with the cutter (not enough)? Those are some pretty intricate designs. Both the first third photos. Just a thought.
  2. Hello Aiza and welcome to the group.

  4. You're welcome. Glad I could help.

  6. Hey Bill, The only way I found to do it is to set the number of copies at 32 number of columns at 1 then auto serialize. Do that 7 times resetting the start number with 33 then 65 97 and so on until you get to 225. you then have to change the copies to 26 for the last column. I hope this helps, Doug

  11. Freight doors vary in size due to the different manufacturers. Volvo and International are the truck manufacturers they produce cab and chassis trucks, then they contract out to different body manufacturers depending on the customers requirements. Most of the time the trucks are shipped to the dealers and they have a local shop install the type of body the customer wants be it a box van, flat bed or dump body. Your best bet is to take a photograph of the body from a straight on position, measure it and import it into your software. Then you can draw your design, scale it then either print it or cut it out from vinyl. According to Manta they have 251 body manufacturers listed for the USA http://www.manta.com/mb_35_A82C902U_000/truck_bodies_motor_vehicles find out the manufacturer and contact them for dimensions. Hope this helps, Doug
  12. I agree with what Dakota and Goose have to say. Here's another little trick that you might try. After you get the vinyl loaded in the cutter run it back and forth (in and out) a few times to make sure it's going to track straight. make adjustments to the vinyl if it doesn't. Doug
  13. Hey Charlie Let me suggest that you got over to the introduction section and introduce yourself first. let us know a little about you and what software you are using. as for your problem with the cutter, you mentioned that everything was working well until you replaced the blade. I'd check to see if there isn't a small piece of vinyl caught in the blade holder preventing the blade from swiveling, since it was working for a short time after you replaced the blade. Things like blade offset, blade pressure and blade stick out can also cause the same problems. I hope this helps. Doug

  20. Check Blade offset looks like it's out of adjustment. http://www.graphteccorp.com/support/appnotes/TNC_004_Accurate_Blade_Setup.pdf Also check the COND that the machine is set to COND1 is for pen plotting and might have 0 offset. The plotter might have been set to COND1 accidentally.

  22. I think I know what you mean. What I did here was to make my text on a circle just like you did then go to TEXT on top between ARRANGE and EFFECT, with the text highlighted click on BREAK APART. Now you can rotate each individual font to the desired angle by double clicking on the font like the R in the second photo. As you can see in the third photo, in Design Central the fonts still retain their font status. However when you break the text up it creates a circle for each individual font like the last photo. I hope this helps. I tried the DISTORT option but it didn't line up the fonts like you wanted.

  24. Hello, I'm no expert but I believe the U37 which in missing is a capacitor. You'll need to find another photograph of one where the component is still intact to get the number off of it. Nope U indicates an Inseparable Assembly IC R's are resistors D's are Diodes L's are Coil, Inductor, Bead, Ferrite Bead and C's are capacitors https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reference_designator schematic diagrams are probably nonexistent since most things today are throw away. I read on another forum that the main board should be about $209.00 "From Tee Shirt forum May 8th 2015" Yeah same thing happened to my cutter. Your motherboard is gone and you would have to order another one. I believe there are about $209. I just upgraded mines and got the expert pro. That's a common problem on the expert 24 I was told.... Found this place but no main board for the Ex-24 http://www.expomedios.net/repuestos-spare-parts.php?marca=GCC&l=&mode=list Hope this helps. Doug
