    Using SG-300 to cut Vinyl Transfer Stickers

    By all means then, do what you do and let them worry about taking care of their equipment

    Using SG-300 to cut Vinyl Transfer Stickers

    it will cut regular vinyl fine - but I never used my roland printers for cutting other than contour cutting because my thinking was why put that wear and tear on the expensive machine - I always kept a graphtec for my vinyl cutting part of the business - until I sold the printers

    application tape trick worked great - entering the home stretch we hope - changed out mind on the main bathroom flooring and waiting on new stuff to come in. whodathought application tape, and cutting 631 for layouts would be a part of a bathroom reno

    Sure Cuts Alot 3/MH871

    Make sure you also install the usb chipset driver on the new computer so the plotter can communicate with whatever cutting software you use
  6. Most of the older plotters work with the Roland pnc-1000 drivers.

    if you keep them printing like arty does that isn't a bad choice but when you leave on a transatlantic or transpacific cruise, just plan on a new printer when you get back lol

    epson is cheapest to get into it but sawgrass virtuoso uses ricoh and gel inks - much more forgiving if you are printing every few days - I have gone 3 months without printing on a ricoh and was no problem - epson's not so forgiving - it is a lot of fun -

    MH machine Bluetooth?

    get a cheap older computer and dedicate it to the mh - don't connect to the internet with that computer and it will always be happy and ready to go - I design on my main computer and take my artwork on a thumb drive to my dedicated set up

    MH machine Bluetooth?

    Cathy - the MH is the simplest, cheapest value plotter - more used to get people hooked - then as they want more features and more accuracy they move up over time - so adding features to an mh really doesn't make sense as someone with less tact kinda was alluding to - the sc is the lowest plotter that we recommend to most new buyers - but then again many of us started at one time with a mh or p-cut (p-cut has been cut from the line up years ago) and as we got better and made a little money worked our way up to higher end plotters - if you have questions don't be afraid to ask.

    This all looks the same, what was Updated?

    I agree 100%

    David s still working on the update, not live yet. That was a glitch he wasn’t aware of till I contacted him asking about a timetable to finish. Good things come to those who wait
  13. using a $2500 software on a $300 plotter you will lose some functionality of that top shelf software graphtecs and rolands will poll - maybe even a titan2

    Vinyl bowing issue

    never had that issue with any of my graphtecs either until the ce7000 - like skeeter said make sure to prefeed and not make the plotter pull from a roll. that plotter has been rode hard and put up wet - has it crept up on you since 2017 and gotten worse or is this a different plotter?
  15. you also need to install the ftdi driver for the plotters usb emulation chipset for the plotter to communicate with the computer - - - this plotter uses a cheaper shipset and it not a regular usb set up like your printer would be - - - -
