    Cutting out off line

    Which model plotter? Which software? What printer?
  2. try a 60 degree cleancut brand blade . . . . and follow skeeters instructions for least blade exposure and slow

    Where else to get blank signs?

    thinking about it - usually bannerjohn would message me when mumpower had their specials and that was probably the cheaper shipping - but what you was quoted still seems way excessive

    Where else to get blank signs?

    I have used them but shipping wasn’t that high. Uscutter actually loses money on shipping I was told, not sure why my power shipping was so much. Been 2 years though since I ordered from anyone, don’t go thru as many now that I sold the printer and don’t do as many golf / charity event signs.

    Got any tips for me?

    Mine cost a little more but made one years ago using a Newman roller frame from screen printing and clear app tape. Has served me well over the years

    Import from Roland VersaWorks

    In 7 years of printing I can honestly say I never tried exporting from verse works as it is primarily a Raster Image Processing program and I prepped all my contours in flexi pro

    Cutting issue CE6000

    Yup, that supplier scares me and understand where you might have trouble with support there. Their description says it has 5 pinch rollers, never seen one yet with that many on a 24” plotter. Does yours have 5?

    Cutting issue CE6000

    Curious what speed you are running. I have had 2 or 3 ce6000’s and one ce 6000 plus.

    Cutting issue CE6000

    You read those same comments a lot because we start at the bottom and work up on solving issues, most of the time those simple things actually fix the problem. The most common problem we see with people that upgraded to their first graphtec is indeed using a different offset number than 0. With what you have shown it is usually too much blade expose, which of course with your years of knowledge already know about. But it is a process we start from the ground up to make sure it isn’t something simple. With your vast knowledge I am not sure what we can do to help you . . . Where did you find a new ce6000? They have been vary scarce since issues with the ce7000 cropped up. the debate on blade angle is up to the user but for me I have exclusively used 60 degree blades in all my graphtecs and my rolands for over 8 years. That is a choice that works for me.

    Sublimation big problem!!

    Did you ever use that printer with anything except sublimation ink where there might still be non sublimation red in the lines and head?

    hello

    absolutely
  16. Dakotagrafx

    hello

    you might also want to look at a table titan that can cut 15" wide material and has a much better chipset in than the value plotters - just an idea if you are serious about great graphics

    Graphtec CE6000 and VinylMaster Cut v4.2 Issue

    when you send a file to cut in vinylmaster - the second tab has an area where you can set the offset there also for your plotter. Make sure there isn't a value entered in there also
  18. What plotter do you own?

    CE7000 Double cutting

    I used to run into that occasionally with customer supplied artwork that was created in illy - not sure why but I would just delete their cut line and recreate it in the same spot in flexi

    Graphtec FC 7000-160

    Pinch rollers are not directly over the knurl rollers will cause that.

    new provisions for sellers on third party sites

    I just bring it up - I closed the business and this last year claimed hobby income even though I didn't meet the threshold for a 1099-k - and got hammered. figured those that skirt the rules might get a surprise. I am missing the business from the deductions aspect but we was supposed to not be around as much this last year traveling etc . . . .
  22. part of the new covid relief will affect those that sell on ebay, etsy, amazon, use paypal etc. that is important to understand: SEC. 9674.
