    Mimaki cjv30-160 help in north new jersey?

    are you creating a vector contour line in your design software so your rip software has something to cut?

    very nice
  3. last 3 questions 1 how are you setting your blade depth? 2 did you try a new blade to make sure you don't have a broken tip 3. is there a groove in your cut strip?
  4. most of the time we have found that a combination of too much blade exposure, bits of vinyl stuck in the blade holder and the need for a drop of oil in the blade holder is the cure for that symptom
  5. possible mainboard issue - welcome from the USA.

    buying a used printer

    just from watching on the forum for 10+ years the mutoh printers seem to have a problem getting parts after a couple of years unlike the roland and mimaki printers. I personally have had 3 roland (right now have a 30" for sale) and have gotten parts for the first 2 roland even at 7+ years old. the rolands I know keep on kicking forever if maintained. - with any printer always see a nozzle test and not a "print test" - you can hide a lot of bad nozzles on pictures or patterns that people tend to put up to show how well their printer works and then you try to do fine work and find the problem. problem for mine is you are 9+ hrs away - that is where my last roland went

  8. everyone might want to check out the latest changes to the shipping charges - most of us are used to the flat rate 9.99 shipping - that has changed and don't want people surprised https://www.uscutter.com/index/page/static/subpage/shipping_info
  9. Welcome from the USA - really not sure unless it is a mainboard issue with the chipset that drives the display - or display itself. personally if everything else is working good I could download the cut controller from graphtec site and adjust everything from the computer

    Looking for help with this font

    betting that is custom artwork and not a font -
  17. Dakotagrafx


    if you are the original owner purchasing from them they will help as long as you have the product - if you purchased second hand that is a different story - if you did purchase from them give them a call. PS it is a plotter and not a printer - they do not function the same. IF your flexi 12 is legit call SAI and they will help you too - they are great to work with
  18. Dakotagrafx


    I would contact support on the driver problem (personally I would delete the driver first and try reinstall before I called to quicken the troubleshooting) - on flexi 12 that would require contacting SAI directly - - - SAI is the maker of flexi12 - you can try the liyu drivers if a sc1 but so far the members on the forum are not sure who the maker is of the sc2. USCutter empolyees seldom visit the user forum so your quickest results would be to call support

    Force needs to changed on same project often

    if at any point your plotter cuts all the way thru the vinyl you have too much blade exposure - use skeeters blade depth instructions: From Mz. skeeter and the method used most for accurate blade depth To start with, you should set your blade depth correctly, by taking the blade holder out of the machine, and firmly cut across a piece of scrap vinyl, you will be cutting. You should only be cutting the vinyl and barely a mark on wax paper backing, Adjust blade to get there, Then put the blade holder back in machine, and use the force of the machine to get there, same results, only cutting the vinyl and barely a mark in wax paper backing.

    Never had to do this so trying to figure out a easy way

    what software are you using? flexi real easy with outline/inline tool

    Production manager

    reinstall your flexi - the only one I have seen not work was a hacked copy - windows 10 will kill it every time. my legit copes of flexi work fine

    PolyPro cutting mat

    my first one was like that (smaller one) and I flipped it before I declared it dead and bought new

    PolyPro cutting mat

    hmm - I have bought 3 of the 4x6ft ones with print - - - pretty sure mine uses the texture size but also pretty sure it doesn't matter which side - if they had print on both side I would flip them instead of buying new ones
