    Best transfer tape using 651 on small decals

    That post is over a year ago. It is Nekoosa PerfecTear now. Uscutter.com https://www.uscutter.com/Main-Tape-GXP750-PerfecTear-Plus-Medium-Tack-Transfer-Tape https://www.uscutter.com/Main-Tape-GXP775-PerfecTear-Plus-High-Tack-Transfer-Tape

    You can search for the part number. The side pinch rollers and the middle pinch roller are different part numbers.
  4. That vinyl is so thin, it would not take hardly any blade to cut it or force. Is this the same stuff? Contact Graphtec. Or Stahls. (Stahls shows cutter guide lines on the page for a Graphtec.) I don't know anything about this material or how it will cut. Maybe some one else has cut it before. You had many problems with it back in 2019. https://www.stahls.com/heat-transfer-vinyl-sportfilm-lite Material Specifications Composition: Polyurethane (PU) Carrier: Frosted, Pressure-Sensitive Thickness: 100 microns/.10mm Stretch & Rebound: 3 Washability: 50 Safety: CPSIA Certified Laser cutter compatible
  5. Is this the same Graphtec CE 6000 that you had problems with in 2019? And the same very thin Stalhs Sports film vinyl?
  6. No, If using CB09U blade. I only change force for using chrome vinyl. And speed for small text. I don't touch my blade for either. Just the force. I cut Oracal 651. What is that vinyl that your using?
  7. Well back the force back some more, It shouldn't cut deep into wax paper. Just barely make a scratch on the liner. I use my cutting controller also from my computer.
  8. Well If you have it good, keep it that way. Your welcome.
  9. The picture above, is that from your Cutting Controller? Computer screen? Are you sure the settings are the same on your cutter? I thought you were controlling from your vinyl cutter.
  10. You should just barely see it. Back it in more and use the force. You should barely even feel the tip. Another way Graphtec told me, Was to get down eye level. With the cutter off and with vinyl in. Push down the blade holder, You should just barely see light under the blade holder. You only cut with the very tip. That is all that I can help with. Contact Graphtec.
  11. Ok on that, but show the blade sticking out of the blade holder. And make sure Blade offset is on ZERO
  12. Are you sure that you have the blade holder in correctly, with the flange holding down the outside rim of the blade holder? So the blade holder is tight? Can you show a picture of the blade sticking out of the blade holder?
  13. Use the instructions that I gave you above, on vinyl. We don't use a lens to set our our blade depth on any cutter. I have Graphtecs also. They cut perfect. Is this a new cutter to you or did you start to have problems? The correct combination is less blade more force. Make sure you haven't broken your blade tip off. No gouges scratches in teflon cutting strip. Try a drop of light oil in the blade holder.
  14. Try how I am tell you to do it. Not the lens. This works. And blade offset is zero on a Graphtec.
  15. First make sure that your blade depth is set correctly. You must start there. Vinyl is only 2-3 mil and you only cut with the very tip of the blade. Do not use instructions that say use a credit card thickness or a post it note. They are wrong. 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.

    First impressions of the Prismcut P28

    Adjust, your blade to the vinyl, as I stated in the instructions. It will be correct. Vinyl is only 2-3 mil, so you only cut with the very tip of the blade. I have a 30" Graphtec, it only has 2 pinch rollers, Tracks great. I have never needed a use for a ruler on my vinyl cutter. Put the pinch rollers the equal distance on the vinyl edge. Approx 1-1.5" . Never pull from the roll while cutting, always have enough vinyl free and slack to do the entire order. That cutter is a rebranded Skycut. You can find videos on youtube for it. I guess there is a slight difference in the Control panel from what I have read,

    So are you having problems? If so, please explain. Most new buyers see instructions for setting the blade depth with the thickness of a credit card or post it notes. This is just plain wrong. The myth just keeps on going. Set your blade like this. Set your blade depth correctly and start running your cutter slow, until you learn it. 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.

    Small text help needed

    Could be differences between cutters and software. Graphtec and Flexi software here.
  20. Your cutter is listed for set up on Signblazer. You can save your files back as an older version of .ai and import them into Signblazer. I would NOT mess with the firmware. You have other options for using the cutter like it is. Messing with the firmware is NOT advised. If your wanting a more updated supported software. Go to VinylMaster.com and purchase the VinylMaster Cut for just cutting. Your cutter is listed on their version.

    I think my cutter is broke

    When I turn my FC7000 power button on. No sound. Lower the media lever,/pinch rollers, no sound. It doesn't make a fan sound until I push the Roll button then Enter button. Fan starts briefly.then shuts off. . Tried it a couple times. I tried it also after factory reset, The fan does not start and make a noise until you push the ROLL/Enter button. Fan starts briefly and shuts off. Does the Load Media words, just stay on the cutter screen or what when you lower the lever?

    I think my cutter is broke

    OP hasn't been back since April 2018. Is your media sensor not working? Have you tried cleaning it? Tried factory reset? Covering it? Same Graphtec FC7000?

    Looking for a mentor or consultant

    Spend time reading thru the posts here, Years and years of info put into this forum. Buy a good cutter and get going. If you have the funds get a Graphtec. It takes practice, practice. Buy some vinyl and start. Check out your area, colleges, etc for graphics classes. The biggest thing is to find your own niche' or else your going to be be doing what every one else is doing, And nothing will stand out except who is the cheapest. Stay away from copyrighted graphics, Just because you see someone else doing them, doesn't mean they are legally doing them. You must have permission from the graphic owner to reproduce them.
  24. You can use the same Signblazer that you have installed. If you were plugging your vinyl cutter into your computer while it was turned on, you can cause the com port number to change in your computer device manager. Then they won't match. So it won't cut. Com port numbers must match in device manager and Signblazer.
  25. Setting up a printer is nothing like a vinyl cutter. Printers are pretty much plug and play. For your vinyl cutter, you must download the driver, extract it and install it. Then find the com port number in your computer device manager for the driver. Go into Signblazer cutter setup and match the same com port number. Those numbers must match. It is a Com port number. It needs to be 4 or less. Here are the instructions. Your cutter is a Creation Pcut with a laser. But also called UScutter Laserpoint. https://www.uscuttersupport.com/downloads/Support_PDF/SoftwareSetup/LP/LP_SignBlazer_XP.pdf
