    Cutting out off line

    Which model plotter? Which software? What printer?
  2. try a 60 degree cleancut brand blade . . . . and follow skeeters instructions for least blade exposure and slow

    Where else to get blank signs?

    thinking about it - usually bannerjohn would message me when mumpower had their specials and that was probably the cheaper shipping - but what you was quoted still seems way excessive

    Where else to get blank signs?

    I have used them but shipping wasn’t that high. Uscutter actually loses money on shipping I was told, not sure why my power shipping was so much. Been 2 years though since I ordered from anyone, don’t go thru as many now that I sold the printer and don’t do as many golf / charity event signs.

    Got any tips for me?

    Mine cost a little more but made one years ago using a Newman roller frame from screen printing and clear app tape. Has served me well over the years

    Import from Roland VersaWorks

    In 7 years of printing I can honestly say I never tried exporting from verse works as it is primarily a Raster Image Processing program and I prepped all my contours in flexi pro

    Cutting issue CE6000

    Yup, that supplier scares me and understand where you might have trouble with support there. Their description says it has 5 pinch rollers, never seen one yet with that many on a 24” plotter. Does yours have 5?

    Cutting issue CE6000

    Curious what speed you are running. I have had 2 or 3 ce6000’s and one ce 6000 plus.

    Cutting issue CE6000

    You read those same comments a lot because we start at the bottom and work up on solving issues, most of the time those simple things actually fix the problem. The most common problem we see with people that upgraded to their first graphtec is indeed using a different offset number than 0. With what you have shown it is usually too much blade expose, which of course with your years of knowledge already know about. But it is a process we start from the ground up to make sure it isn’t something simple. With your vast knowledge I am not sure what we can do to help you . . . Where did you find a new ce6000? They have been vary scarce since issues with the ce7000 cropped up. the debate on blade angle is up to the user but for me I have exclusively used 60 degree blades in all my graphtecs and my rolands for over 8 years. That is a choice that works for me.

    Sublimation big problem!!

    Did you ever use that printer with anything except sublimation ink where there might still be non sublimation red in the lines and head?
