    Font ID help

    ah! I wish people would learn to use their phones. My wife is horrible about it. She'll send me a screen shot of a web link.

    You posted a screen shot of your phone, can you post the original image that was sent to you?
  3. If it's just orientation that is the problem my question is, is it really a problem with the software/machine, or the user? Often times people don't corelate the origin point of the plotter and what it considers x vs y to what is displayed in their design screen. Once you get the orientation thing straight in your head things work as they should.
  4. To get the multiple designs, are you laying out multiple copies on your design or are you letting the cutter do the repeating on it's own?

    Help! Liyu SC631 not cutting detailed designs properly

    Blade depth would be the first guess? How did you set the depth?

    CS630 X&Y axis deformation

    Are you using Glass Eye to do the actual cutting or is it just the design software?
  7. A 45 would probably last a bit longer and as long as you're not doing super detailed work it should get the job done.
  8. Paper will dull the blade surprisingly quick.

    MH machine Bluetooth?

    If you're just looking for a way to go wireless, you might look into a wifi USB hub. It is a pretty new technology and I haven't heard of anyone on here trying one out but might work. Although when I google it, I don't get many results and the ones that I do find are sold out/unavailable.

    MH machine Bluetooth?

    If you're really tech savvy you could probably rig up something using a RaspberryPI, could be a fun project but probably cheaper, certainly easier and faster to just buy a Prism

    Cut Order

    +1, trying to get a cad/DXF file to work on a cutter is a nightmare.

    Sure Cuts Alot Pro 3 makes wonky cuts

    I suspect you have more wrong than just the cutting strip, but the cutting strip is not helping matters. Get that replaced and we'll go from there. I suspect you'll see an improvement, but it won't be perfect.
  13. slice is correct. the MH is a very "dumb" cutter. It just cuts, no smarts to it at all.

    Grounding without a Stand

    No, plastic is an insulator. If that is case you will want something like this: https://uscutter.com/Anit-Static-Kit-for-Vinyl-Cutters/ it's basically just a metal wire that drapes across the vinyl grounding it to the cutter.

    Grounding without a Stand

    The issue of grounding is not the cutter or even the stand for that matter, the issue is the vinyl itself. As you stated the cutter is grounded through the outlet and internal wiring. The problem is the vinyl is what is generating the static and it has no place to go other than through the blade. The static discharge into the blade will also pass through the various electronics before it gets to ground. The fix is to ground the vinyl itself so that static does not build up. This is most easily accomplished by grounding the stand since the vinyl is touching the stand all the time static can not build up on it. The other option is a grounding wire/cable that drapes across the back of the cutter and touches the vinyl as is feed into the cutter.
