    No mention of which machine your using, and you have never asked for any help here. So what is your problem with which machine and software? And what is the size of letters your trying to cut.?
  2. Can't help you with this, but why not put your serial numbers/ passwords, important stuff in your email drafts,? Easy to get to. I keep everything there for easy access. Put the title what your saving.
  3. You would damage your teflon cutting strip, if you even tried to do that.. Then you couldn't cut vinyl with those scrapes and gouges in it. The FC cutters that I am referring to have a separate little channel in front of the cutting strip.and a different blade to run down thru that channel to cut the vinyl across like that. No cutting on the teflon cutting strip. so no damages.
  4. You have to buy a Graphtec FC vinyl cutter to get that feature. Pull the vinyl forward and cut it off by hand. with an exacto blade or a letter opener.
  5. I understand it says competitor help, but there is not anyone to help you. with "THIS" cutter. The REDSAIL and the MH cutters we tell people NOT to buy. They have too many problems ORIGIN could be called something else on those cheap Chinese cutters. What's the SET button do? Or the OK button, You are going to have to just experiment or find a REDSAIL user manual Good luck.
  6. So did you change the com port number to 3 in LXI Production manager? They must match. Device manager and LXI.. Most people don't own Signwarehouse cutters here. This is US cutter brands. Signwarehouse is your tech support. Go thru the menu on your vinyl cutter. Every cutter has ORIGIN. Do some searches online, That cutter is a REDSAIL.. Rebranded for Signwarehouse. Nothing more I can help with.
  7. So change the com port number to a lower number in device manager. Right click it. go into properties. Look on your cutter for the ORIGIN button. That is the starting point to measure. Make sure that you are hitting CUT in LXI and NOT Print.
  8. Your cutter is not a printer...So did you go into LXI Production manager and ADD the cutter? As you must.ADD a setup Open Production manager, Find your cutter in the drop down list. No such port as COM 11 . Signwarehouse should have the instructions for your cutter in their tech support. Also you must push the ORIGIN button before sending a cut. Those bottom of the barrel cutters will run better on a Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter, That is the brand name. Those value cutters have a cheap Chinese chip set in them. They are not true USB.
  9. How do you know the blade depth is correct? How did you set it? and blade offset on a Graphtec is ZERO. 0 NOT 30 This is how to set the blade depth correctly 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 just barely see and feel the blade tip out of the blade holder. You only cut with the very tip of the blade. If you haven't done so already enjoy some great FREE software from Graphtec. Pretty much like Flexi sign Pro without the printer drivers.
  10. I don't have a Titan, but do they have set screws holding them against the bar.? If so loosen it a little and see if they move. My Graphtec has a screw to loosen to move...Or try a little light oil on a clean cloth and wipe that bar a little that they slide on.
  11. Do you have the pinch rollers up, off of the grit rollers, so they can move?
  12. Printing in order

    I am just messing around with the demo, but when Vinyl Master opens you have the GATEWAY. on the left side at the bottom it says UPDATES/UPGRADES.
  13. SC cutter newbie. Need help

    I have a Graphtec FC series and it is the only vinyl cutter I have seen that has the cut off blade. Or rebranded Graphtec FC

    I was looking at Vinyl Master Pro demo and after clicking SPOOL ALL>Preview,, on the right side bottom you can check REDUCE TRAVEL.. That may or may not help you, because doing that also uses up a lot more memory,And those MH cutters are very limited on memory. your welcome

    that is how vinyl cutters operate, they follow the paths how the design was created.
