    MH721-MK2 set origin SBE

    Move the carriage head to the lower right hand corner. Push the ORIGIN button on the vinyl cutter before sending the cut. The cut may start further up, but it will come back and finish the job. The ORIGIN is where the cutter starts measuring your design. Turn your speed slow. Make sure design is smaller than the sheet of vinyl. Best to use a serial connection or a Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter on a value cutter. like the MH.
  3. Yes, looks much better. Your welcome
  4. adjust the offset in your cutting software now. and run those samples. Pen offset zero. Blade start at 0.25mm and adjust 0.05 plus and minus. Blade Offset is in your cutting software. No mention of which you are using. Do you have your blade depth set correctly? This is how to set 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.
  5. Paper and pen test Offset should be set to Zero. There is no offset with a pen. Pen is centered in the blade holder. A blade drags, it has offset. Check that the carriage head wheels are firmly in the track. Make sure carriage head , blade holder arm is not cracked or broken.

    Titan 3 noises

    Is it your blade hitting that hard? How did you set your blade depth? Too many people are using wrong blade depth instructions.

    Titan 3 noises

    What sound effects? That cutter has a servo motor, it should be pretty quiet. More info please
  9. Try saving your file first. Then import it into Vinyl Master. I am using a demo and have no problem importing .eps files into the demo. Did you register and activate the software? You must. LXI software is still being sold. It is a rebranded Flexi software. Which cutter did you buy? Most major software will save as an .eps file format. Vinyl master imports .eps. Here is their import and export format list. You can find that under HELP at the top of your layout screen. A lot of useful info there. Look up IMPORT.

    PixMax Plotter / Off-set Issue

    So how did you set your blade depth? That is where you have to start. Too many people see wrong instructions of setting the blade depth and have too much blade exposed. Too much blade exposed will cause problems with blade offset, because your not cutting with the blade tip. How did you set your blade depth? Instructions above are the correct way. We have people cutting for a long time, who think they have the blade depth correct and they have 10 times too much blade exposed. Most people are only cutting sign vinyl at 2- 3 mil, so it only takes the very tip of the blade to cut it. My above instructions work every time. Just because your happy with it, does not mean it is correct.

    First start with your blade depth, it has to be correct first. Then start at 0.25 for blade offset, No mention of which cutting software you are using. 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.

    Help needed

    Laser pointer 3 did not come out til this year. Maybe your talking about a laser pointer 11. Your cutter is a Liyu brand If your cutter does not have ARMS, then it is not a Laser pointer 3. Follow the instructions https://support.uscutter.com/support/solutions/folders/14000106613

    vm versions

    If you have the UScutter version of Vinyl Master, It is different than the Vinyl Master website version. You may have to purchase the website version of Vinyl Master to get the all cutter version. UScutter version upgrade is here. https://uscutter.estore.software/cart/en/step/one

    which fonts do you need?

    Just because the software is abandonware, does not mean that the fonts are. If the fonts are FREE, then you should be able to download them from a font site FREE. Dafont.com etc.

    I think I'm cutting too deep...

    No way. You should just barely see and feel the blade tip out of the blade holder, as stated. You only cut with the very tip of the blade. Vinyl is only 2-3 mil thick.

    sk720t

    Which cutting software are you using? Did you make sure the driver installed correctly? Com port numbers are matching in computer device manager and the cutter software? Is that a used cutter? Did you see it cut before buying? Did you try a different cable? Best to put it on a Tripplite Keyspan Adapter, it does work with a vinyl cutter.

    Graphtec ce6000 vs plus

    Are you sure the Graphtec Ce6000 are not plus also? The Plus have been out well over a year. Unless there is a much cheaper price for the CE6000. then get the CE6000 Plus.
