    SignBlazer Elements 6.05 - Cracked and Tested

    You must open a file onto your Signblazer screen, select it, use FILE> EXPORT and .eps must be in the file format at the very bottom of the page of Signblazer. List files of Type Encapsulated post script. Which is .eps . It is a drop down box. Put it into a document folder on your computer. OK. Show us a screen shot. You should not have expectations that an old, never updated software is going to keep working. It has been thru many different versions of Windows already, .. with no updates. Matter of fact it best imports version 8, .ai files which is many years ago. that is how old it is. It will not even import newer files.

    SignBlazer Elements 6.05 - Cracked and Tested

    Yes, you can export your Signblazer files as an .eps file. You were told that. You are not using every one of your files at 1 time. Start with converting the most used files. You now have a software that works. It is very possible that Signblazer will not work with your computer. Signblazer has not been updated for years, and won't be. Owner died years ago. It is time to move on with a more current software that does have updates. Did you ever get the Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter? And null modem cable? You can purchase a Sata to Sata transfer and send them all to your new computer and then convert. I have done that. That is hard drive to new hard drive transfer. Also, if you are running any type of business, and really need those files, you should ALWAYS have those files backed up somewhere off of that desktop. That computer is not going to last forever. Always have your files backed up else where or you will really have problems in the future. We cannot say that enough. We see it all the time here. People lose everything because their computer crashes. https://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-2-0-to-IDE-SATA-S-ATA-2-5-3-5-Hard-Drive-HD-HDD-Converter-Adapter-Cable/322512733253?hash=item4b1741c445:g:oOcAAOSwAWlaVHFq:rk:7:pf:0

    That OP does not come here last visit 2012. Slice& Dice has the most current Signblazer. download and it works for people using an MH cutter. By using the Redsail driver. So what happened when you used the Vinyl Master demo?

    Cutting Overlap

    You did not state how fast your running the vinyl cutter, but maybe slow it down, and they are right about the vinyl slack, always have enough vinyl slack to do your order. Make sure your pinch rollers are the equal distance from the side of the vinyl. Like both sides 1 1/2 inch in from side of vinyl. The tracks don't hurt a thing.

    Hi Everyone!

    Pay once and still be running that Graphtec 10-15 or more years from now. I have had mine for 11 years, never a problem.

    I do not use Signblazer. I use Flexi software products. The SBD files are only for Signblazer. Does Signblazer allow you to export files or SAVE AS an .eps file.? That you can import into Vinyl Master. It is always best to save your files in a universal format that can be imported into any cutting software. Most cutting software will import .eps files.

    Did you ever try to set the cutter up with a different cutting software? Like try Vinyl Master trial. and use the UScutter MH series setup. That software is for Windows 10. http://www.iifuture.com/vmdemo/Ord_FreeTrial_VM_01_FC.html

    There are many ways to transfer your files. Personally, I would not have bought the laptop. I would have put the money on a better vinyl cutter . That cutter is a bottom of the barrel vinyl cutter, with many known problems. We see those problems constantly on here almost everyday. We tell people not to buy that MH vinyl cutter. The much older MH cutters, didn't have as many problems, but the past 5 or so years. many problems.

    You can still use it for that. Ya know most of us regulars have a dedicated computer, just for vinyl cutting. And we stay back on older windows, because they are more stable. Many of us, including myself, still use Windows XP, because it is more stable. You do not need a fancy expensive computer to run a vinyl cutter. I design, etc in another computer and send it to my email and just download it.. Then it is in my cutting computer. Pretty easy. My design computer Windows 7 has a bigger screen, and my Flexidesigner software is there. I do my vinyl cutting on an old 2006 Toshiba, 15" Windows XP

    How was the laptop going to make your life easier? Slice and darcshadow did reply. They are mostly the only regulars that have owned or used an MH cutter.

    The Tripp-Lite Keyspan Adapter is for people who do not have a serial connection. Most new computers only have the USB connections. The Tripp-lite has a USB connection to your laptop etc. Serial would be the way you should go. She stated the brand of laptop that she had in previous post.

    When you get the Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter, You will also download the driver for it. You will plug the USB end into your computer. Then you will connect 1 end of the null modem cable that came with your vinyl cutter to the Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter, and the other end to your vinyl cutter. The null modem cable will be between your vinyl cutter and the Tripp-Lite Keyspan Adapter.

    This is the brand name https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tripp-Lite-Keyspan-High-Speed-USB-to-Serial-Adapter-PC-Mac-USA-19HS/113534390768?epid=1194060954&hash=item1a6f2d51f0:g:yBsAAOSwcZ1cNBmS:rk:1:pf:0

    The brand that I told you to purchase and showed you the picture, is Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter. That is the brand name. That is the one guaranteed to work with a vinyl cutter. You cannot just go find any USB to serial Adapter. Those also have the same cheap Chinese chip set like the MH cutter. They will not work with a vinyl cutter. You have to purchase the TrIpp-lite brand like I showed you.

    explain how you hooked the cable up please. And show some screen shots of the settings like before.

    It went up to windows 7. You can also put that laptop on capability mode of windows 7, so it can run older software. All computers can do that. But personally I would quit messing with the USB cable and cannect the cutter with a Tripp-Lite Keyspan Adapter and be done with it. Serial and Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter are the way to go. Much better connections and controls the flow of data, and lets you run larger designs, as it helps with the memory. We tell these people with value cutters to run that.

    I think she should get a Tripp-Lite Keyspan Adapter and be done with it. Those cutters need them anyway. My 2c

    The video from UScutter, shows go to the USB ports In device manager. Not the printers. I gave her that video from you tube, You go to Universal Serial Bus controllers, Click the arrow beside the top one and open the whole list up. With the vinyl cutter turned on. She should be able to unplug and it and plug back in and her com port number shows up. Match it in Signblazer . If there is an error like a question mark, beside that com port, then the driver is not installed. Watch the video, this part starts at 5:35. You can move the video to 5:35 and watch.
  23. It is not about how old a cutter is, My cutter is 11 years old and cuts great, it always has. It is about how the operator learns the cutter and software and knows at least the basics of setting it up, for it to run correctly. You can have a new $5000 premium cutter, and it can cut junk, because of the way you set it up.

    28" vs 34" sc2 cutter

    @STENN, You do not know what I create, most on here do not. I created 28" designs to be in a class of my own. My designs are very detailed, that is what sets me apart from other sellers. I make large vinyl graphics for my category. I also make more money in less time. .. These detailed designs are not suitable to be made in smaller sections and put together. And just making them smaller like 22"W is not suitable either. When you start making detailed designs smaller, you are creating pieces, that have very little adhesive on them and they won't stick. Plus a lot harder to weed and more time involved. When doing detailed designs, 6" wider can make a big difference, in the use of the decal as well as time involved. Buying a vinyl cutter does depend on what your goals are. My goal was always to set my self apart from other sellers and make great money. Many people come and go on this forum and most don't last. Many begging for tips on how to make money with their vinyl cutter. All they want to do is make 6" or 12" decals, and they just compete with the low ball sellers. Plenty of them out there. They don't last. It is very hard to make money doing little decals. Unless your doing quantities everyday of every week of every year. And look how time consuming that would be, just to make some pocket change. This is why I have a 30" cutter.
  25. Both of mine do that. Nothing is wrong with them. They have always done that. It growls also if you run it super slow like speed 2-3
