    Import image but I can't cut it

    Your kinda stuck with that software From Vinyl Specialist Q&A "this cutter uses its own proprietary driver that comes built into the SignMaster software. Please note, this cutter cannot be used with another design/cut software if you are planning to send the job from another software."

    MH871 Problem Cutting

    When setting up your vinyl cutter and using different vinyls. you must set your blade depth for the vinyl that you are cutting. 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 your blade tip out of the blade holder. Then do test cuts with your machine, start at 0.25 mm for blade offset. Using + or minus 0.05. Run the machine slow until you know how to use it. No reason to cut fast. Look at your test cuts, the box should be square. Sharp corners.

    Cutting vinyl rolls

    Maybe just starting with rolls that are already 11" wide would help you out and get you going Earlmich.com sells 11" wide x up to 50 yds. rolls. under Vinyl Striping. Find another use for what you already have,or sell it. . Then cut your 8.5" as suggested. You never stated what type of vinyl. Depending on the vinyl. Have you got a friend that owns a Graphtec FC8000 or newer? That machine could cut them, with a roll of 11" wide. Either with the blade or the cross cutter on it, in my opinion. It has the groove in the machine, so as not to hurt the cutting strip. Blade holder has 2 hole position. Put blade over the groove. Even that new Graphtec CE7000 has that option. Maybe someone wants that job.

  5. This is correct way to set your blade depth. You set it to the vinyl that you are cutting. It works. 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 your blade tip out of the blade holder. Do searches for uses for contour cutting. I did not buy my cutter for contour cutting. Even 15" Graphtecs have contour cutting, as well as Titan 3 series.
  6. To cut around printed designs on vinyl. Some higher end cutters even perf cut. Look up contour cut on youtube.
  7. How did you set the blade depth? If too much blade exposed it will do that. And lift the vinyl up. Did you put the blade offset at ZERO? Also what computer operating system are you using that Flexi 8 on? Is it Flexi 8.0 or a higher version? 8.1, 8.5, 8.6?

    Curved name around object

    I felt the same way last night when they posted that question, I almost posted the answer. And it was too easy to search for. NOOB? Been on here over 4 years!! And they have a shop?
  9. Too bad no stand, wonder what happened to it? It is standard equipment with the 24" on up. Maybe they still have it somewhere.

    I am looking for a couple graphics

    BBB vector is available to a search for it online Add FREE vector to the search keywords.
  14. You didn't mention which other UScutter vinyl cutter that you had. But the blade offset on a Graphtec vinyl cutter is ZERO. A Graphtec has a servo motor, and may be night and day better if you had a stepper vinyl cutter before. If that cutter was taken care of, you got a great deal on it.

    You said you set it up in Signlab10. Which cutter did you choose?, as the Titan is not even listed in Signlab10 according to the website. You have to choose a cutter brand. which cutter did you choose in Signlab10?
  17. The Command for any other software than Graphtec software requires HP-GL language. GP-GL is Graphtec software. Flexi is HP-GL

    Under Saga, It only lists Saga SCA3. It does not list any UScutters. No TITAN vinyl cutters listed at all. Which cutter did you use in Signlab10 for set up?

    Doesn't Signlab 10 have tech support? You said you paid good money for it. That should include tech support. I don't know of anyone here that uses Signlab, but maybe some one will show up. No download link or disk for it? Put the USB cable in a different com port for Signlab.

  22. Very easy to fix that. Go into your cutter menu. Mine is in background settings on my FC. Go to: Initial Blade Control Position> Put it on the> OUTSIDE> Enter. That will put the "J" on the outside of the design.
