    Heat Transfer Vinyl

    I press it to the garment - no way to know if the "customer" has an adequate heat press that applies even pressure at the right temp for the required amount of time. selling it to them to apply is a sure way to make a bad name in the business when they don't apply it right.

    vm versions

    you would have to contact VM about a price for an upgrade from uscutter version to the regular version - but if you don't like it than that is a non starter. On flexi the cheapest way to get the big version (not starter) is to buy a new graphtec and download graphtec pro studio that comes with the new ones free - actually worth more than the cost of the new plotter

    vm versions

    yes there are various versions with a uscutter version with mainly the plotters they sell drivers and the general version they sell

    it shows great precision - the easyweed makes it easier on the person doing the weeding - have to admit the precision part held up to the challenge

    ezweed has a sticky backing - it does look nice

    I think I'm cutting too deep...

    they also still have videos and instructions to use 1/2 a credit card depth which we all know is 10 times too much blade - the old timers that stay around and read every single post helping newbies have gotten hundreds of people cutting correctly on the weekends and nights when the main office is closed - - - day after day, week after week, month after month - same story.

    Problemas de corte

    using vinylmaster (as that is the better program IMHO) - you need to adjust your offset so the corners are crisp - then add to the overcut and that will fix your are that is not cut -

    Graphtec ce6000 vs plus

    the plus came out within a couple months of me purchasing my current ce6000-60 Sept 2016 - so if they still have ce6000's they don't turn over their stock very often.
  11. I switched my dedicated computer a while back to a HP Elite 8300 USFF and 8200 USFF (one is my shipping computer and backup to the cutting computer) ultra small form factor computer and put a solid state drive in it - very very low power usage, cost effective solution as mine is left on about 9 months out of the year. like a laptop in power usage but has more airflow and is silent. cutting computer is never online and no anti virus needed so it is faster and not likely to get corrupted from a download
  12. lol - great minds think alike on using a refine after having a graphtec that would be about as much fun as putting your hand on a vice and whacking your hand with a hammer :/
  13. signblazer might work with it - last updated 8+ years ago but a free download - other than that buy vinylmaster
  14. first welcome from the USA - we need more of a description of what your machine is doing now - has it worked in the past or is this a newly acquired unit.
  15. First Welcome from the USA first make sure you have the offset back at 0 when you go back to the cb09 blade - if that doesn't work chack and make sure you don't have a broken tip but betting you still have the offset set to something other than 0. personally I wouldn't try cutting cardboard on a precision cutter and even if you did you would need to use a carrier sheet so you didn't destroy your cutting strip.
