  1. Maybe try 2 passes instead of just 1 pass.
  2. The cutter will only cut a vector,file, which is comprised of nodes,,.eps, .fs and more vector files. The cutter will not cut a raster image, which are pixals. like a jpeg or bitmap.If that is not the answer you are looking for, then please explain more.
  3. Weld them before cutting. Or what ever it is called in Vinyl Master.
  4. Flexistarter 12 is reasonably priced here. Master Warehouse has been a distributor for years. I have bought here years back. Most other places want $395 for it. You don't pay more. It is yours, lifetime license. It does not have much in design features, but imports many different file formats.
  5. OK, but did you know that Flexistarter cutting software can turn any vinyl cutter into a contour cutting machine? The contour cutting is in the software it's self. Look at the top of my picture, It has a feature called contour cutting. No laser needed, it measures from the blade in the middle of the registration marks.
  6. what wouldn't the cutter do?
  7. My Graphtec is 9 years old, NEVER once have I had a problem...Bought new, use pretty much daily, Bought 2 Graphtec CE5000-60 for kids, and also never a problem..
  8. Many cutters will run on the same drivers...Even a Graphtec will run on a Copam in Signblazer...As well as the Titans will run on the Copam in Signblazer. And the Roland PNC1000 is a generic driver that will run many different cutters. It is a go to driver, when an OP can't find their old driver...
  9. Follow the instructions here for Windows 10
  10. Yes it is.. BUT....that is where I found the answers to your problem....I didn't have a clue, just did some searching......
  11. I hope it works out for you. Roland also has it's own forum. Your welcome...
  12. You already did this back in March.. You saved it as a PDF. This is just a repeat of March...and the same OP with the same question again.
  13. Same question earlier in the year. March...
  14. A Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter that is the brand name, is guaranteed to work with the value cutters like the Pcuts The value cutters have a cheap Chinese chipset. Your RS232, connector, could very well be equivalent to the the same cheap Chinese chipset. In Flexistarter go up to Properties in upper left corner, then click the last tab that looks like a blade.. If not done, change the packet size to 1000 kb. Click Apply ok. For the size difference, Go to resolution and add a step. Click Apply and ok. Cut a small square that measures, 3 Inches, or whatever.. Make sure it is cutting that. Adjust the resolution to get it. Write the number down, so you know which way you went.
  15. Is this new or used? Did you see the cutter set up and cutting? Here is the Lynx website, maybe they can help you.
  16. Did you try choosing in your add set up. the Roland PNC1000 cutter as your vinyl cutter as suggested above? It's a generic driver.
  17. Found this on another site. "Strange, all versions of CST files should open, you could look at getting the full installer of the new version and then try opening the files in that version". another answer "i had the same problem when installing Cutstudio on a new PC. After scratching my head a little bit i went to the website and downloaded the new update (its a biggie) and all was fixed"
  18. He has to choose a com port number from the list. It is a drop down box.. This what I have
  19. No, He has to select the com port number. that is in device manager He needs to explain how he set up the Keyspan Adapter,and did the driver install correctly.?.. I can't find that model cutter any where, that he posted. I have Flexistarter 8.6 and it is not on mine...Thru GCC or Vinyl Express. Not On Signblazer, Not in Vinyl Master.
  20. Is there any way that you can save the older version of CutStudio to a flash drive? Or any other way.? Then transfer it to the new computer. Hope you didn't wipe out the older computer.
  21. Vinyl Master is for a Windows OS
  22. Start with the basics. How did you set your blade depth,? This is the correct way to set your blade depth, It is very important, to start here..No matter what the other designs cut like.. 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 or feel the blade tip out of the blade holder.
  23. You can read the description here
  24. Go to the resolution in Flexi and calibrate... Cut a box, say 3" long. Measure it, adjust the steps in resolution so that it is 3" long. May take a few tries.
  25. The only USB to serial adapter guaranteed to work with a vinyl cutter is a Tripp-Lite Keyspan Adapter That is the brand name.. Most of the inexpensive ones, have a cheap Chinese chipset in them Example, find the best price.
