    Titan 3 start up

    Are you starting your blade inside of the right pinch roller? To the left of the right pinch roller? Not sure how that cutter operates or where the sensors are. My cutter has magnets where the pinch rollers are and you cannot cut past them, unless I turn my sensors off. Not sure on that cutter. I would try UScutter this morning. They are on Pacific time

    Did you try as stated above and make the layout screen smaller? Make it 22" wide. New Document 22" wide. and keep your design inside of it. With Vinyl Master.

    Hoping you have a better day tomorrow. These vinyl cutters can be frustrating just starting out.

    I have a Graphtec vinyl cutter, which also has many sensors. If you don't have everything lined up just right, they will not operate. Sensors for media, sensors for pinch rollers, carriage head. Do you have your pinch rollers exactly over the grit area below the pinch rollers? As they must be.

    That is about 10 times too much blade exposed, There are many wrong instructions out there for setting blade depth. 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 your blade tip out of the blade holder. You only cut with the very tip of the blade.

    Your money is not wasted at all. You have just not learned how to operate it. This is a very skilled job. You will not learn this job in a day or even weeks. There are several sensors on this machine, It is just not plug it in and do the job. Be patient, and while your waiting learn your software. And while your waiting. How did you set your blade depth?

    how close to the right side do you have your vinyl.? Make sure it is a little over 1 inch from right side. From a previous poster with the same problem " Okay! After a brief chat with customer service... My problem wasn't the length of the vinyl, but the edge-to-edge width. I had my 24" vinyl centered in the cutter rather than pushed toward the right hand side, and it was tripping the sensor. I moved the vinyl about an inch from the right-hand side, and it solved my problem."

    I cannot help anymore, If the cutter is not communicating with the computer, only randomly, then there is nothing that I can do. How long is the new cable? Should keep around 6ft-8. Too long will lose communication.

    Make the design smaller.. Are you setting the ORIGIN as I stated? How big is the design? How big is your cutter?
  11. Here is the REAL tip... Sagas are more expensive. Out of Saga .com the 24" servo is $1005.. NO ARMS. The warranty straight from SAGA is ONLY 3 years plus parts. . Your comparing a 72011 which is a Titan 2,,, Against a Titan 3,, The Titan2 is only $870 on sale right now. at UScutter . Is a servo cutter. The Saga cutter would be the 7211P vs Titan 3 Saga 7211P is $1145 at Saga Same price as UScutter. The difference is the ARMS on the Titan 3. https://www.uscutter.com/TITAN-2-Vinyl-Cutter-28-53-68-inch Also I would have looked up the motor number online, probably could have replaced it just by the number. Zencut was a GCC rebranded cutter which they still make. GCC is still in business.

    what does it say in CONNECTIONS? and have your tried a different USB cable? Does the cutter show up in your computer when you plug and unplug the usb cable With the vinyl cutter turned on?

    What does the RED say? It is not clear to read. It looks like an error.

    When you click the CONNECTION at the top does it say you are connected? Also are you hitting the ORIGIN button before you are sending your file? And I would put that cutter on a very slow speed until you learn it.

    I have never been into the Vinyl Master library, So I didn't know if they could be jpegs or vectors.

    did you ever type some text out on the layout screen and send to cut? Type anything. Select it and send it. Don't pick something from shapes etc.

    what does the cutter display show? Is the cutter offline when you send it? Or ready to cut ? What does the cutter do when you hit the TEST button?
  20. MZ SKEETER

    as advised, show some screen shots, of your settings, of what it looks like, before you send it.

    We don't know what your doing.. Show some screen shots.. Use the TEXT tool and enter some text, then cut it. Here is the Titan user manual and the Vinyl Master user manual https://support.uscutter.com/support/solutions/folders/14000106614 https://support.uscutter.com/support/solutions/folders/14000106609

    what kind of design? Was it a vector design? Post the file if it is not a copyrighted design. Are you following the instructions from the user manual? Tell us how you set it up to your computer. Did the driver install and you did test cuts with the TEST feature.? Not enough info to help you.

    Just the fact that it was ALREADY created, makes it copyrighted. Anything already created, does not belong to you, and is copyrighted. It does not have to registered, only created. In other words, if you did not create the image, and you do not have permission from the owner, leave the image alone.
