  1. when you click specs on that one it says 15" - - - - IMHO it should specify the size in the title
  2. The price you mention makes me believe you are comparing the 6000-60 plus to the 6000-40 plus which is only 15" wide - uscutter just list the ce-6000-40 =plus without the size designation with I would think is a mistake - I am sure you want the 24" which is the 6000-60 The graphtec pro studio is rebranded flexisign pro about $2500 if you purchase the flexi version so it makes it a great deal to get it with the plotter free

    How is this made? CNC Router?

    Would love to have the CNc someday after the printer is gone

    Small details popping up and out on reflective

    personally I wouldn't even try a job that small with reflective - others may disagree - definitely not 6000 of them

    FONT help

    the letters look slightly different each time they are used like the e - so maybe someone just drug their finger on their phone making the handwriting. closest I came up with was Bingo Bangos (Regular) - but then you would have to do it and do a bad trace to come close to what is shown

    Hey ~ I'm Alicia Zee!

    I really admire the old signmakers - today most "sign" people have no idea what a maul stick is. Found out a year ago that Mack Brush company is about 45 minutes away when taking a pet to a new vet - had to make a stop and pay respects! Salute!

    Will sub Work?

    Last I checked those heat presses to do those shirts are around $35-40,000. USCutter was setting one up in the showroom 2 years ago - betting it didn't fly off the shelf with their target market

    Will sub Work?

    I know that mutoh and rolands have been set up with sublimation ink for wide format things like entire shirts (think bass tournament and race teams - but it isn't something you can switch back and forth on the inks without considerable expense every time you switch - the mimaki may have sublimation ink available but again you will be wasting huge amounts of ink to switch it over from one to the other by the time you flush it and run enough new ink to make sure it is ONLY the ink you want printing at that time

    MH Contour mod

    Shipping back is going to be quite a bit, your call

    MH Contour mod

    SC2 better , titan even better with more reliable usb circuitry - and titan2 is the cheapest servo motor cutter and does a great job - just lots more money than the mh - the MH sells so many just on price - people make some money with them and then upgrade. many many of us worked out way up to the graphtec machines after making the lower end plotters pay for them.

    Graphtech Condition 2 skewing

    Thanks, that is new to me - still learning something weekly

    Graphtech Condition 2 skewing

    I used 15 once with some thick reflective on a over used blade - - -

    Graphtech Condition 2 skewing

    skeeter - you ever cut with pressure that high? I usually run 11-15 depending on material - think at 20 I could cut leather. messing with pressure roller tension has never made things better in the thousands of post I have read - - - - it only causes more problems - will wait to hear from others

    RMA Exchange

    This one appears to be a hit and run - Marrissa has not been back on the forum to check status or update since August 5th when this was posted. I would be curious on the plotter purchased - the cheapest 53" is a SC2 for $619 - so wonder if it was a refurb SC or something similar I am also curious why the stand was returned with the defective unit increasing cost both back to uscutter and for a unit to be returned to customer.

    Minnesota Mike here.....

    We don't talk about the Lions (motor city kitties) or the TIgers Now Michigan State is another story ( for my friends in Ohio remember "Buckeyes are those nuts that hang below Michigan" ) I personally set up in the basement - my house is very climate controlled because of the eco solvent printer but I can tell the difference in vinyl when humidity gets too high. I have a natural gas heater in my garage I don't use much anymore for 2 reasons - the by product of the unvented heater is water - and we found on 2 different sets of vehicles the natural gas heater promotes rust in the vehicles (2 year was for a very sick shepherd that couldn't stay in the house many days and other day was convenience as in liking a nice warm car). I can keep my vinyl in the house at 40 percent humidity (summers it does get up to 50 percent when running dehumidifier) and from 65-75 degrees - have found my vinyl stays in great condition longer than most recommend with those conditions.

    Welcome from Michigan - setting up in a garage can be hard - vinyl should be climate controlled when stored and depending on your climate the plotter can suffer too. lots of tips and tricks on the forum - when you have a question most things have been asked in the past and the search box in the upper right is the key to finding answers without waiting for someone to respond

    Is this impossible to print?

    Just looked online till I found one that looked correct without the gray look. while roland does sell printers that can have silver or white ink in them they are not widely popular because those colors of ink are more expensive and most of it ends up in the waste tank from daily cleanings - and heard it clogs more often - but with the right artwork the silver ink is not necessary. chrome in artwork is often displayed with areas of white, gray and blue as it is a mirror and you have to have the illusion of reflection to a point to look like chrome
