    From the license stipulated on page 2 of that PDF even if someone does have this collection of fonts they can not legals share it with you.

    I think I'm cutting too deep...

    Good idea, how'd you get the holder at that angle?

    Problemas de corte

    There should be a setting in the software to adjust the steps per inch, or the scale. You should also double check your blade depth setting. To much blade exposure can cause bad corners as well. Follow Mz Skeeters instructions found here:

    Keep Center Of Letters Doing Stencil

    Are they reusing the stencil or is it a one and done? If it's just a one time thing there's no need other than that you have to peal off individual letters.
  5. if the oldest you can download is 3.9 and you're running 1.3, your firmware\hardware maybe too old to go straight to 3.9. Is there a revision history for the update that tells you what new abilities the firmware offers? Firmware won't have any effect on the software's ability to run on your PC.

    SC Cuttng Software

    Signblazer should also work I believe.
  7. Recognized as what? As far as I'm aware the MH has never shown up as anything other than a comm port.

    Keep Center Of Letters Doing Stencil

    If you're using vinyl you just use your application tape to put the vinyl on, paint it, then pull the vinyl off. If you're wanting to make a reusable stencil out of say cardboard you need to use a stencil font, or add lines to your fonts to join the centers so they don't fall out when you cut the cardboard. Keep in mind, these are vinyl cutters, and most are not designed to cut through anything much thicker than vinyl. They also most all require the item being cut be attached to something. For example vinyl is on a backing sheet so that you cut through the vinyl but not the backing sheet. Hobbiest cutters will come with a cutting mat for cutting paper. The paper sticks to the mat and holds in in place so the machine can cut it like it would vinyl.
  9. Is it only cutting text backwards or the whole design? If the whole design, make sure you don't have a mirror option turned on in your software. As far as cutting through, have you set your blade depth correctly? Ie, followed Mz Skeeter's directions that been posted on here hundreds of times.
  10. When you connected with the serial cable, did you use a null modem cable, and did you make sure you were on the correct comm port. It'll be different from the comm port used when connected to the USB>

    Help with this one

    I know it's not much to go on, and I have found a couple that are similar but they were too straight and didn't have the right feel.

    Shape by angle

    I'm not exactly sure what you're asking. a Rhombus with a 45 angle at 17mm high will only be 41mm wide. If you're just wanting a diamond shape that is 17x150 you can start with a square, rotate it 45 degrees then stretch it to 17 x 150.

    Thanks, that one is closer to the feel I want. I can probably make it work.

    Floor Graphics

    Are these to be removed in the future? If not, a clear epoxy might give you the desired results.

    Looking for font help

    Best I could find was the 2016 Chevy font that is not available to the public. Finding that though then lead to a font called Grand national that is really close, except for the As https://www.dafont.com/forum/read/255279/2016-chevrolet-silverado-font https://www.dafont.com/grand-national.font

    titan 2 cutting issues

    hmmm, that's weird. It shouldn't track differently like that. Only thing I can think of that might cause that would be a drag one direction and not the other but I have no idea how such a drag could happen. That might be a question for actual tech support.

    titan 2 cutting issues

    By tracking, do you mean when you cut a 4 or 5' design the cuts don't line up, or the vinyl moves to the side? If the cuts are not lining up, that is a true tracking problem. If the vinyl is just moving to the side, that is more likely a setup problem and you didn't have the vinyl loaded perfect or you didn't pre-feed and the machine is pulling the vinyl off the roll. Doing that puts additional strain on the feed motors and rollers and can cause things to shift. Pre-feed the vinyl and your "tracking" problem should go away.

    Pattern in font-VM Pro

    I don't believe the Pro version has the mask tools. Is the triangle pattern a raster image or a vector? If vector, you can put it behind your text then use the Shapping tool and select Common. I believe that tool is available in VM Pro.
  20. Yeah, the cameo is actually a graphtec, just small. You'll be extremely frustrated trying to use an MH. Even an SC will probably be a bit frustrating at times. And if you're wanting to do large decals an MH is not a good option as it's tracking is not very good over long distances. Anything bigger than about 24" and it's a gamble if the cuts will line up.
  21. The only way an MH is a step up is in size. You should look at an SC or better. Which craft cutter do you have, most of them are quit good at small detail and the MH is not. At least not without a lot of tweeking and tuning.

    EH721 Vinyl Cutter Won't Connect - Windows 10

    You probably need a null modem cable as well. You typically can not connect a usb-2-serial directly to the hardware. You usually need a straight serial cable or a null modem cable. If the EH is the same as the MH you need the null modem cable.
  23. Also lets start with a simple shape, how does a simple square come out?

    new prismcut plotter announced by uscutter

    No, the depth is NOT fine. 1/2 credit card is about 10x to much blade exposure. Follow Mz. Skeeter's instructions for setting blade depth. You only need about 0.003" of an inch of blade exposed.
