    You don't give enough info to help you. No mention of how you set your blade depth, which cutting software, what is your blade offset. What computer system? How fast are you running the cutter? How is it connected to the cutter? What type of vinyl? This is info that you need to provide to get help. That is a bottom of the barrel vinyl cutter, that is going to take a lot of fine tuning to get it to cut good. We always tell buyers to not buy that cutter. Any cutter up from that would have been better. That cutter has many known problems.
  2. . There are many places that sell it online as well as Ebay. Amazon. Sheets and rolls. Feel free to search. It's not a rare vinyl, it's just an economy vinyl.

    Fine tuning is just making tiny adjustments plus or minus to see which is cutting the best for your cutter. All cutters are different, even the same model. No videos for that. That is for blade depth, speed, force, blade offset. There are no number settings set in stone for any vinyl cutter.
  4. Try Oracal 641 vinyl. it comes in matte colors and is more permanent. https://www.orafol.com/gp/americas/en/news-reader/items/1532

    You may have to really fine tune the cutter to cut text that small with a stepper cutter. Or you may not at all. You may need a larger text. A servo cutter would do it, (Graphtec) As I have done it many times, even with chrome.

    You do not mention how you set your blade depth, so start there. Sounds like too much blade exposed. 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. You were advised on your first post that you have too much blade exposed, you may have adjusted it some, as you stated it was shredding the vinyl. But still sounds like too much blade exposed. This is the correct way to set it. We don't know what you saw online, there are many wrong ways out there to set blade depth.

    Polaris Outlaw templates

    You said you wanted a template for a Polaris outlaw 500. I told you how you may get it. Or do like Slice said and go purchase it. Or design your own.

    Are you saying you still have a problem or are you just making a statement?

    My father was a livestock auctioneer at Stoney Pike Sale Barn Logansport, until 1972 when he passed away. I am about 40 miles SW of Fort Wayne.

    I am in Indiana, where did you live?
  16. How are you making the circle? Are you just using the circle tool? How did you set your blade depth? Vinyl cutting only takes the very tip of the blade to cut. You should just see and feel the very tip of the blade out of the blade holder.

    90 miles below you , still -16 temps -45 real feel. Sunday, Monday 50's here, Heat wave.
  18. Back to HELP> HELP TOPICS> Search> weed> It brings up Speed and Weed boxes, which explains each one. That TOPIC section is invaluable. Just search for the word. There is HELP TOPICS and KEYWORD SEARCH. Many actual lessons in there.. These software and vinyl cutter companies have already taken the time to answer all of these questions, and they are very easy to look up. Take some time to learn your software. This is not a 1 or 2 day course. This is why this job is considered a skilled job. There is lots to learn, and the fact that you can download a free trial of the softwares to learn ahead of time, gets you started before you ever get your vinyl cutter. This job is practice, practice. It really baffles us, when people get a vinyl cutter for the first times, they know nothing, and day 2 they are saying, " I don't know what to do, I am already behind on orders" You should know your software and vinyl cutter very well and know how to transfer tape your decals, before you even consider selling. Maybe do stuff for a friend.
  19. Page 23 of your user manual is showing you how the test cut should look. Sharp corners and sharp points. https://www.uscutter.com/static/PDFs/SC2_Manual_FINAL_10_10_2017.pdf
  20. What does the test cut look like? That is what you want to check. Is it square? Doesn't that cutter make a square with a triangle in it as a test?
  21. Every person here volunteers their time, but it is up to you to do the legwork. No one here is from UScutter and we do not get paid.
  22. Oh gee thanks?. No one can walk you thru every step of this. When you bought this, who was going to teach you? This forum can walk you thru anything, Everything has been posted HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of times on here. That is YOUR job to do the reading and teach yourself. or go take some courses or classes. This forum was not even here when I started. It was trial and error. At the top of the layout screen is HELP.. Check out the topics.
  23. Your software has a user manual. A lot of these questions can be answered there. Take some time and learn your software. Also many youtube videos.

    I am at -1 waiting for the next -18 to roll in about 9 am. -55 wind chill here. It will be a high of -10 here Wednesday.
  25. That is the business that moproauto.com does, sell vinyl graphics, and stripe sets. The 2018 Durango doesn't come with these stripe sets installed. Companies create these designs so that you can make your vehicle look better. They are aftermarket products. You cannot just recreate others designs without permission from the owner. Your welcome.
