  1. I was just going to say the same thing, You may still be able to find a New, or Open Box CE6000.60 or Slightly used . I bought my Graphtec new in 2008, I have never had any problems. In some cases you may find someone getting rid of a FC, because they may want to downgrade. I have seen very nice FC units sell for cheaper than a New CE. I got one like that.

    New to the forum and to vinyl...

    Reread Scott LOL He doesn't currently have a cutter. ( "I don't currently have a cutter") He wants to know if the roller issue has been fixed, so that he can buy a Graphtec CE7000

    travel lines that cut

    Check out a craft forum or Cricut forum. Most people that answer questions here use full sized vinyl cutters and software for those vinyl cutters.

    MH721 Pressure and not cutting correctly

    Your TEST cut straight from the machine is not good. Can you show a picture of the blade sticking out of the blade holder? Did you ever check the belt and the grit roller screws to make sure they are tight? Make sure the carriage head wheels are firmly down in the track. Did you check for a crack in the carriage arm?

    you should be showing pictures, of your cuts. We can't tell what is going on. What does the TEST cut look like? TEST right from the machine. Show the screen shots. Show your settings in your cutting software. We are only volunteers here. You would have to contact UScutter tech support for mechanical problems. Make sure the grit rollers set screws are tight, The belt is tight.

    First impressions of the Prismcut P28

    To get you going the correct direction. this is how you set the blade depth for any vinyl cutter. Blade offset is 0.25mm adjust at 0.05 plus or minus to get correct. Start slow until you learn your cutter. Force is determined by your blade depth, which must be set correctly at the beginning. Do not use a credit card or post it notes to set blade depth, this is wrong and way too much blade exposed out of blade holder. You would only use a cutting mat for cutting all the way thru the vinyl, or possibly cutting some scraps, What do you plan to do with a cutting mat? Vinyl cutters cut right to left. 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. You should barely see and feel the blade tip out of the blade holder. Regular sign vinyl is only 2-3 mil thick. You only cut with the very tip of the blade. When you think the blade is so far in the blade holder, that you think it would not even cut, that is probably correct.

    Yes, some can even be cleaned and turned over and reattached with double sided tape. https://uscutter.com/uscutter-mh-vinyl-cutter-replacement-parts/ Scroll down parts list.

    Could you have broken the tip off the blade? Hard to see unless under a magnifying glass. Also, take a good look at your teflon cutting strip, make sure no scratches, or gouges. Those will cause you problems. You only cut with the very tip of the blade. No mention what type of vinyl you are trying to cut. Make sure carriage head wheels are firmly down in the track.

    Setting force is determined by the blade depth. Too many incorrect instructions out there say to use a credit card or post it notes. These are incorrect. You set your blade depth and force to the vinyl that you are cutting. Also make sure that you are never pulling from the vinyl roll while cutting. Cut slow, while learning your machine. 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.

  10. Yes, Version 5 has not been out very long. I saw it advertised as a special.
  11. I doubt those demos are up to date. Mine says 2017 when they are loading, They have been on my computer for years. What do yours say? There have been updates Vinyl Master has posted links for updates.
  12. Tech support for the software is Vinylmaster. Put in a ticket there. Under SUPPORT. It's called Vinyl Master Cut. (entry level) Vinyl Master Pro is a different (higher level) software. https://www.vinylmastercut.com/
  13. Which cutter? If not a Graphtec, then hopefully you are using a cutting mat, or you would be cutting, scratching, and gouging up your teflon cutting strip, which will cause you other problems. The cutting mat would hold the material. Most cutters start cutting where the vector was designed first.

    Source for vehicle window dimensions?

    Possibly another source might be blueprints.com for cars, trucks
  15. Your motor may be dragging, running slow, etc, which may set off the alarm. What type of vinyl are you using? Is it a big roll that you are pulling from? That cutter can't be very old., Isn't it under warranty? Why haven't you contacted Graphtec tech support with your problem? That is who you should contact.
