    Which is the better choice on software?

    vinyl master hands down - and it is upgradable
  2. If you save your files in .eps format it is interchangeable with most vector based software so you don't have to go thru the conversion again. if you upgrade your VM remember the discount here
  3. first I would try another usb cable to rule that out - the titan2 has a great usb chipset so that usually isn't the problem - if trying a different usb doesn't work and it is new I would call support Monday
  4. We will see you back after you discover that any credit card trick is about 10-20 times too much blade exposure -we deal with hundreds and hundreds of people that do this every year and come back saying they have bad cuts because of the too much blade exposure. the people helping on the forum have many years of experience -
  5. Early on Marcus hired Ken Imes that was the face of uscutter, he acted at sales , tech support and repairs. Ken was running things all day and on the forum and support lines most of the nights and weekends. Back then, looking back, it was incredible for one person to be available so much. Jerry’s development of signblazer was way ahead of its time 9 years ago . . . Without Ken and Jerry I don’t think it would be near what it is today . . . Even with a couple of missteps like the ill fated 3D printer days and the attempt at being another fellers for wrap printers etc. . . The target market always was the beginner and supporting them as they grew. When i visited Redmond they was setting up a 48” heat press that sold forv50k. And shortly after ordered some expensive laser cutters that did not fit the target market well. Now they seem to have rethought that and got back to basics

    Layered Graphics not sticking to objects

    I agree with skeeter - clean with alcohol first - never with anything with ammonia like windex and NEVER use clear tape when applying wet

    My cutter doesn’t completely finish the cut

    What plotter and what software? If something like an me or redsail the course nature of their stepper motors can be fixed with over cut in many softwares if you have that option. Before you ask that is totally different from offset that should not be changed if you have good sharp corners. Many people also have easy too much blade exposure when starting out . . . Directions on blade exposure can be found in the instructional contributions section of the forum .

    What is wrong with my file?

    you might be running into the very limited memory on the mh series - were the words made from actual font or traced? tracing would add a lot of nodes we can't see - wildgoose is our illy and signcut person so will wait for him to get here to speak on the software end. I had to read it 3 times because you appear to be cutting and not printing - I had 3 roland solvent printers and that is an entire different area and way to do things . with the mh you may be limited to sending one at a time. other thing is to make sure you have the plotter grounded to the stand so static doesn't build up in the vinyl and discharge thru the carriage causing such issues . the plotter itself is grounded thru the plug but the stand on the mh is insulated from the plotter and requires a separate ground wire from the stand to the plotter to discharge any static build up

    Should I get a heat press?

    sorry to hear of the ailments but totally understand - after 3 drs 2 of them did several shots in lower back and no relief I really really understand where you are coming from. I did the shots without anesthesia so I didn't need to bother my kids to have a driver :/

  13. you might call support next tuesday when they reopen (remember they are on pacific time and now close for lunch) - they almost never come on the forum unless it is to promote a new product

    HELP QUICK!! flexi starter 10 install

    Skeeter - I know you watch this closer than I have - I only see flexistarter sold thru one retailer for $245 and one person on ebay selling it for $395 . . . any idea why the price went up so much on starter and why so few are selling it - heck even uscutter doesn't have starter anymore
