  1. You can use Bootcamp and other options to run it as Windows on your Mac. Others are doing it.
  2. I can't answer that question but I notice that your using Cutting Master4. but you did not mention the OS your using. Did you know that Graphtec has FREE GRAPHTEC PRO STUDIO? It is over $1000 free software just like Flexisign pro 12. But it is only good for Windows. It is FREE for the asking with your model of cutter. All that might save you on other problems. You can even run a Windows side on a Mac.

    How did you set your blade depth? Those cutters really need tweeking for any fine detail. And how small /large is the text? I don't think you can cut real slow on those cutters.

    Vinyl Express .ve files to Signblazer?

    I only use Flexi software and someone was wanting to change all of their old .ve files into an .eps file or different format to import. Same thing your wanting. . As an experiment, He posted the files. So I downloaded them. I went to the document files, and changed the .ve to .eps and it worked. The file imported as an .eps file. Now before you go try something like that. I would make a copy of the original file , so that you don't loose the file. What I am saying is go into your documents, choose a file, right click it and rename, erase the .ve and write .eps as the file extension. and see if it works. It worked for me. Maybe it will work for you. But another thing that might be a problem with Signblazer, is that it is old outdated software. It will only import old version files.. Like version 8. I was using Windows 7, when I tried it. The only problem that I had when I changed the files were, many of the files had text on them and I did not have those fonts downloaded and installed on my computer, and I was not going to do that. So it would change all the fonts to ARIAL font. Flexi software will tell you the name of the missing font. I just chose the ARIAL just to look at the design. We choose not to convert the files for this person, because many, many of them were copyright protected logos which were illegal to reproduce. My Flexi file format extension is .fs and I renamed .ve files to .eps files and was able to import them into my Flexidesigner10.5 software. " latest version of Vinyl Express LXi we have is 8.5, which is now end of life," What does that mean? Have you tried to reinstall it? Is the dongle not working? I can still run my Flexi 7.6 which is a lot older than the 8.5... And I cut with Flexistarter 8.6 everyday. So exactly what is the problem with the LXI software? LXI is just rebranded Flexi software.


    I don't have Vinyl Master, but I think you click FILE>Vinyl Spooler> then it gives you other options. and one is calibrate the cutter.


    Check the Craftedge website and see if it is compatible. Welcome.

    Check in Vinyl Master and see if it doesn't import .svg files. One way is to import your svg files into and save as your svg as well as an .eps file that can be imported into Vinyl Master.
  8. The Graphtec Controller will not open until it is hooked up to a Graphtec Vinyl cutter. And that the vinyl cutter is turned on and ready to cut. How much do you plan to spend on a Graphtec cutter?
  9. Will the FC7000 run? Without it lighting up? If so, maybe it could be ran with the Graphtec Cutting Controller right from the computer. That's all I do anyway. I don't change anything on the vinyl cutter. Both cutters might be able to be ran from the Graphtec cutting Controllers right from your computer.
  10. You can find the service manuals for both online. So what is wrong with the FC7000-75?

    Help needed! Applying transfer tape to large vinyl

    So what do you do with a 24" or 30" roll of transfer tape? It would look to be pretty awkward. Those rolls are heavy. You guys with those machine shops should look into making yourselves a Mask-Rite transfer tape applicator. It will hold, any width of transfer tape and you can just keep on masking any length. I have done a 16 ft decal on an 8 ft table with it. With a Mask-Rite you don't have anything bolted to your table either. Just put it away under your table.

    If your having a problem, please start your own thread, so we know exactly what your problem is. More info needed. No mention of which cutter or operating system.
