    Flexi cutting vinyl larger than the original size

    overcut needs added a little to join lines. Offset is to square up corners. Run a TEST cut from your cutter TEST feature first. I have Flexi and Resolution should take care of the sizing. Type a text on the layout screen then click cut so the screen opens. Upper Left corner Properties... screen changes, Top choose the KNIFE tab. last to the right. Default Job properties. Resolution. This is from Flexistarter, but should be close to yours. Resolution is how many steps in an inch. Make a 4" x 4" square and adjust for it.

  3. Make sure your blade depth is correct, too much blade exposed, will shift the vinyl. Here is the correct way. Also I measure the pinch roller to vinyl edge. They should be equal distance. Prefeed the vinyl and watch it. 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 barely see and feel the blade out of the blade holder. Regular sign vinyl is only 2-3 mil thick. You only cut with the very tip of the blade. Cutter memory is determined by the amount of nodes in the design. 144" could just be a simple file.

    So how do you have the Tripp-lite connected to the vinyl cutter? The USB end of Tripp-lite should be connected to your USB port (computer.) Then the null modem cable, that came with your cutter, should be screwed in connected to the Tripp-lite, then the other end of Null modem cable screwed in to your vinyl cutter. Choose Com 4 in Vinyl Master. The com port numbers have to match. If those com port numbers don't match, then change the com port number for the Tripplite and also change it in Vinyl Master. See if any of the numbers will work. If you can't get working, call support tomorrow so they can look.

    How do you have the Tripplite Keyspan Adapter hooked up? What is the com port number for the Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter in device manager? Show some screen shots. You don't look for a cutter in your ports. You look for the Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter. If it is installed correctly it shows up in your device manager. Make sure the cutter is turned on. Are you using the null modem cable that came with your cutter?

    You should be looking for the Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter com port Number in device manager. Not a printer. Make sure it is on 1-4 com port number, nothing higher. Once you find that number, go into your cutting software set up and use the same com port number. They must match. After downloading the driver reboot your computer.

    Many times, people have problems setting up their cutter and making adjustments to their cutter, so they use the pen tool, instead of wasting vinyl. You can also see how your design looks, by using the pen tool, instead of cutting vinyl. (checking errors in the design). You can also tell if your problem is a static problem. Most likely if the design completes with the pen tool, and paper, then you have a static problem. Vinyl creates a lot of static and will stop your cutter with the blade in, touching the vinyl.

    This is why UScutter sells a Static kit. It stops the static from the vinyl. It touches the vinyl. Some say it works, some say it doesn't., This is what most likely happens with value cutters. Nothing more that I can add. The value cutters do not have TRUE USB like higher end cutters, so we always say get a Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter, as a much better connection.

    Sounds like static from the vinyl. Make sure the cutter is grounded to the stand. Use a Static Guard type product, in the area, dryer sheets in the vinyl rolls, wipe down the cutter with one, as well as your vinyl. Run a humidifier in the area. Buy a Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter, that is the brand name. Use with the cable that came with your vinyl cutter. It's a better connection.

    Vinly Master

    You are not explaining your problem. We don't know what your doing, or even what model. Creation has several different models of vinyl cutters. On what operating system.? How connected.? Explain what your doing. You have to download drivers extract and install. , Then match the com port number in your cutter device manager between 1-4 Choose the same com port number in your cutting software.

    You are posting under Signblazer, so find one that does work. You don't state the model, Creation has many different models of Pcut. Most any major cutting software has Creation Pcut models listed.
  12. If your interested in other cutters, this Ioline is quite expensive, plus a Stahls heat press at Stevensville, Maryland $1200 for both.
  13. last year a forum member contacted me, he was looking at an FC8000 that was up on Fbook marketplace. He had to drive a couple hours to look at it. An older man had it. It turned out to be a brand new machine, still in the box. He got it dirt cheap. So keep yours eyes open and do some searching, and have the money ready. There are still good deals out there. Where are you searching from CharlesV? Are you close to Iowa? This is a great deal. Many people don't have room for the bigger cutters, or think that they don't need one that big. I have always had 30" cutters. I create designs to cut that big. Indiana, dirt cheap Graphtec FC7000
  14. 3 years ago I bought Graphtec FC8000-75 for $1000 free ship on Ebay. Took me about 10 minutes to fix it. They had the cross cut blade locked down.
