  1. So,for those of us in the past s that us 15/100 of and inch . . . That explains a lot. These cutters drag the blade and the blade is dropping in an orientation different than what you want. You are trying to do that with the lowest end course stepper motor whan the only real way to get anywhere near that small would be with. A true machine that orients the blade by mechanical means ( summa might make one) . . . The cutter though is going to cost over $2000 compared to the $250 one you are trying to accomplish this with. At least that is my take on it, other opinions may vary. My first clue was the width of the pressure roller tracks in the picture to give some scale. actually at just over .15 " that machine did a great job for what it is
  2. pretty hard to find - I just googled graphtec america and hit support. I have never heard of anyone having trouble with their direct support before but then again so few people ever need to call them Technical Support:Please provide product model & serial number with your tech service inquiry Toll Free: (888) 318- 3247 if the time being down is a big factor then order another one while this one is being fixed. when you have big overhead you have to plan for equipment problems.
  3. heck I would just check the temp with an ir thermometer -set it once and mark on the dial with a sharpie
  4. personally I would contact Graphtec tomorrow directly for diagnosis / .
  5. also how tall are those letters?
  6. clear is nice for layering but not conducive to compound curves like normal cars (race cars tend to be flat - and can't use with wet method - many times in the past I have put paper tape down and just use some clear or even packing tape over the part with registration marks to make lining up easier. that way I still have the paper tape for wet or curves after I cut off the registration marks.
  7. I have never seen it available . . .maybe call support
  8. last of the 3 - 3tb hard drives went in today - it is cruisin - good for another 3 years I hope 64gb ram, 8 core ryzen 3.4ghz, win 10 pro just a Sunday internet cruiser
  9. didn't find it but it sure has that sexy LHF look to it
  10. What does the nozzle test look like, will give a couple of clues, like encoder strip problem and if you will also need a1700 in heads ?
  11. actually I was referring to the roland plotters and not printers = the roland uses a big dot and square for registration points in most programs and it finds them a lot easier than the other plotters I have used
  12. Glad you are doing good hatter
  13. Welcome from Michigan
  14. been 3 years since the last update . . . .
  15. heck it seems lately none of it is as strong as it used to be - personally I have never had a problem but 951 is a very small portion of what I have used
