  1. Sounds like you have the Command on the wrong command. Flexipro is Command HP-GL. Any Graphtec software is Command GP-GL (Graphtec Language)
  2. Too many users have crashed/locked up their cutters downloading the newer firmware. Why are you wanting to? I have owned my Graphtec since 2008. I have never downloaded new firmware. I have never had any types of problems with my Graphtec.
  3. Your user manual other software and all info is at the Graphtec site.
  4. You need to create your own niche'. Meaning, create something that others don't have. If your just selling what others are selling , then it is just about price and who can be the lowest. No one makes money that way. And don't do copyrighted decals. They will get you in a lot of trouble, when you get caught. These companies have lawyers just looking for people who are violating their owners rights, that is their job.
  5. You would probably be back eventually with lifted vinyl and other problems. This is correct way to set your blade depth. To start with, you should set your blade depth correctly, by taking the blade holder out of the machine, and in your hand, 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.
  6. How did you set your blade depth? Too many incorrect instructions out there. Never use a credit card width or post it notes to set blade depth. They are incorrect and about 10 times too much blade exposed out of the blade holder.

    Sure Cuts Alot 5 or Vinylmaster?

    Each software has a trial version to try for yourself, and see which one that you prefer. Download and try them. Vinyl Master was created for professional sign and decal makers and can be upgraded.
  8. Did you download the driver, and install for the USB connection? USB on a value cutter is not True USB like higher end cutters. After you download the driver, reboot your computer. It creates a com port number in your computer device manager. The com port numbers have to match in your computer device manager as well as your software. Vinyl cutters are not plug and play. From UScutter.com support In most cases, all needed PC drivers will be preloaded in VinylMaster. If you need to download and install drivers for the USB connection to work properly go to www.uscuttersupport.com and select the driver that supports your Windows version. #12 in user manual. https://www.uscutter.com/static/PDFs/LP3user_manual_FINAL_07_09_2019.pdf

    Long cuts don't line up

    (POS) cutter is not the first time that has been said about this on this forum by many of us. Even the owners say it. Also Door buster. Bottom of the barrel. I also remember very well, you said "If you look at the cuts from a MH cutter from 30 ft away, they will look like a Graphtec cuts." LOL. Jaybyrd was very active on the forum then. I remember he said "So you tell your customers to stand back 30 ft and their decals will look better?. " I never forgot that you said that!! LOL..

    Long cuts don't line up

    We advise people over and over, not to buy this cutter, A step up to a SC2 would have been much better than this bottom of the barrel cutter. This cutter has known tracking problems as well as static, memory and communication problems, , But with a lot of tinkering and fine tuning it, and practice, you might get it to run better. First off, make sure you have the blade depth set correctly. No using a credit card or post it notes to set blade depth. Those are incorrect. Too much blade exposed out of the blade holder causes drag and may move the vinyl. Great instructions for setting blade depth below. They do work. Now run the cutter slow until you learn it. Put the pinch rollers equal distance from the edge of the vinyl. About 1.5 inches in. Make sure you start the vinyl straight, Always have enough vinyl pulled from the roll and slack for your order. Never be pulling from the roll while cutting. The grit rollers marks go away after you install the vinyl. Now start there and see it you can get it better. Next, if these don't work out for you, sell that POS and buy a better cutter. It is true, you get what you pay for in vinyl cutters. My 2c. This is correct way to set your blade depth. To start with, you should set your blade depth correctly, by taking the blade holder out of the machine, and in your hand, 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.

    Very very very old VE LYNX 24

    Did you reboot your computer after you installed the driver? Leave the dongle in the computer. I had an old Flexisign 7.6 which I put on Windows 7, After I rebooted the computer, it worked. That is all the info that I have

    Win10 drivers for SC 631e

    Are you using a Usb to serial adapter now? If so, many will not work with a vinyl cutter, as they have the same cheap chipset as the value cutters. A Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter will work with a vinyl cutter. You have to use the null modem serial cable that came with the cutter, connected to the Keyspan Adapter. You can also try different cutters in the list and see if any others work.. Roland PNC1000 is a generic driver that works for other cutters. New or used vinyl cutter? If used, did you see this cutter working?
