    Not cutting correctly

    that is unusual for a graphtec - which model do you have and what cutting software are you using?

    Beginner Question

    Graphtec, 60 degree cleancut blade and slow, vinyl with a lot of tack because that isn't a lot of adhesive left on those letters. best chance for something that small if it is a MH or redsail don't think you will be happy

    MH 721 not cutting correctly

    Prizm Cutter Engraver Pen

    Just noticed on that link Skeeter it is another $100 for a stand. so $850 is a 28" tabletop plotter :/ do a lot of people use a 24"+ plotter as a tabletop?

    Titan 2 not cutting correctly

    If you are using a 45 degree blade start at .25 and work your way up and down by .02 until you get crisp corners - seems the common thread we have seen this month with this is scalp and mac . . . .

    There have been times I have caused those things too . . . Every now and then

    too much time on the forum?

    Pretty sure 20,000 post just means that someone has spent too much time over the years on the forum :/ almost time for a vacation

    CAD Models

    I don’t believe so, member mb20music has made pen holders for several years for many of the plotters his designs for the ball point and sharpie doesn’t modify any parts on the plotter so it is easy to switch from pen to knife.

    GCC to Graphtec force

    Never used that particular plotter but on the ce3000, 5000, 6000 I cut at 10-14 on regular vinyl and up to 16 on reflective with a clean cut blade set using skeeters method for exposure . . . Most of the time at 12 and only change I make is when I go from calendared to cast vinyl. Betting you have too much blade exposure along with overthinking it.
  12. what Haumana said - what software are you using for cutting your vector graphics
  13. not much info to go on - first thoughts are dirty platen - 2nd is if pressed on a black substrate that it is bleeding thru

    Multi color Vinyl help

    just add a couple of your own marks - I like stars, some like diamonds, etc 2 at the top and copied over each other in layers for each color works great for layering vinyl - lots of youtube videos on layering

    Titan 2 not cutting correctly

    Just a wild guess, another scalp user?

    Full version Signblazer Download (all cutters)

    try the ftdi driver from here http://www.redsailcnc.com/download.html

    Full version Signblazer Download (all cutters)

    2 things come to mind - the series 2 is probably newer than 8 years ago - but for any software to work with usb you will first need to download and install the usb chipset drivers for your particular cutter - 2nd thing that stands out is you mention printing - you use the send to cutter command as your plotter will not function as a printer. printers deal with raster graphics that uses pixels - - - where a plotter uses vector graphics made of nodes and arcs.

    Titan 2 not cutting correctly

    that surprises me as every program I use exports to eps (I had scalp when it first came out and uninstalled it pretty quickly so not up on latest updates) but then again scal was developed for the cricut cutters so I guess not that surprising. Any word on when the vinylmaster for mac might be available? got a tidbit a few months ago on that and then nothing new

    Titan 2 not cutting correctly

    definitely scalp as it has not been a problem with other softwares and you said it started after an update. Seems we are seeing a lot more issues on mac and scalp than any other combination during the past few months

    Titan 2 not cutting correctly

    what I am seeing is the offset is way off - does scalp set the offset for your plotter or is that internal on you plotter?
