    No mention of which machine your using, and you have never asked for any help here. So what is your problem with which machine and software? And what is the size of letters your trying to cut.?
  2. Can't help you with this, but why not put your serial numbers/ passwords, important stuff in your email drafts,? Easy to get to. I keep everything there for easy access. Put the title what your saving.
  3. You would damage your teflon cutting strip, if you even tried to do that.. Then you couldn't cut vinyl with those scrapes and gouges in it. The FC cutters that I am referring to have a separate little channel in front of the cutting strip.and a different blade to run down thru that channel to cut the vinyl across like that. No cutting on the teflon cutting strip. so no damages.
  4. You have to buy a Graphtec FC vinyl cutter to get that feature. Pull the vinyl forward and cut it off by hand. with an exacto blade or a letter opener.
  5. I understand it says competitor help, but there is not anyone to help you. with "THIS" cutter. The REDSAIL and the MH cutters we tell people NOT to buy. They have too many problems ORIGIN could be called something else on those cheap Chinese cutters. What's the SET button do? Or the OK button, You are going to have to just experiment or find a REDSAIL user manual Good luck.
  6. So did you change the com port number to 3 in LXI Production manager? They must match. Device manager and LXI.. Most people don't own Signwarehouse cutters here. This is US cutter brands. Signwarehouse is your tech support. Go thru the menu on your vinyl cutter. Every cutter has ORIGIN. Do some searches online, That cutter is a REDSAIL.. Rebranded for Signwarehouse. Nothing more I can help with.
  7. So change the com port number to a lower number in device manager. Right click it. go into properties. Look on your cutter for the ORIGIN button. That is the starting point to measure. Make sure that you are hitting CUT in LXI and NOT Print.
  8. Your cutter is not a printer...So did you go into LXI Production manager and ADD the cutter? As you must.ADD a setup Open Production manager, Find your cutter in the drop down list. No such port as COM 11 . Signwarehouse should have the instructions for your cutter in their tech support. Also you must push the ORIGIN button before sending a cut. Those bottom of the barrel cutters will run better on a Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter, That is the brand name. Those value cutters have a cheap Chinese chip set in them. They are not true USB.
  9. How do you know the blade depth is correct? How did you set it? and blade offset on a Graphtec is ZERO. 0 NOT 30 This is how to set the blade depth correctly 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 and feel the blade tip out of the blade holder. You only cut with the very tip of the blade. If you haven't done so already enjoy some great FREE software from Graphtec. Pretty much like Flexi sign Pro without the printer drivers.
  10. I don't have a Titan, but do they have set screws holding them against the bar.? If so loosen it a little and see if they move. My Graphtec has a screw to loosen to move...Or try a little light oil on a clean cloth and wipe that bar a little that they slide on.
  11. Do you have the pinch rollers up, off of the grit rollers, so they can move?
  12. Printing in order

    I am just messing around with the demo, but when Vinyl Master opens you have the GATEWAY. on the left side at the bottom it says UPDATES/UPGRADES.
  13. SC cutter newbie. Need help

    I have a Graphtec FC series and it is the only vinyl cutter I have seen that has the cut off blade. Or rebranded Graphtec FC
  14. Printing in order

    I was looking at Vinyl Master Pro demo and after clicking SPOOL ALL>Preview,, on the right side bottom you can check REDUCE TRAVEL.. That may or may not help you, because doing that also uses up a lot more memory,And those MH cutters are very limited on memory. your welcome
  15. Printing in order

    that is how vinyl cutters operate, they follow the paths how the design was created.
  16. Printing in order

    Printing? Sounds like your cutting, with your vinyl "cutter" The cutter is not a printer.unless your using a pen tool, then it's a plotter. . .. Unless your software has a step by step cutting function, or another name (optimize cutting order,) then no. that is how a vinyl cutter works. Step by step cutting would not be advised for detailed designs. Are you having problems with vinyl tracking? You do not mention which vinyl cutter.
  17. Misaligned Cut

    Did you re-calibrate in your cutting software? Your showing the jpeg. but what does the vector file look like? You do not state how fast your speed is. Try slowing it down, maybe slipping on tracking.. Maybe too much blade exposed, No mention how you set the blade depth. Check the grit rollers and make sure the set screws are tight in them. Does it do the same when your using the pen tool.?
  18. Question

    Where? On Ebay and Amazon the SC2 24" is $399 FREE ship and on UScutter website it is $419 for 24" plus ship. Cutter, stand and software only. I also noticed the red Laser Pointer11 is gone.
  19. best way to find the designer or creator of an image

    Reverse image search. BUT Just the word "Jeep" is trademark protected and belongs to Chrysler.. The word Jeep doesn't have another meaning other than the brand name for a vehicle. You must have permission to even use the word. "Jeep" Who ever makes those designs is in violation of copyright and or trademark infringement. And if you are supplying "JEEP" decals without permission, from Chrysler, you are in violation of trademark infringement also. Chysler does not allow their logos "JEEP" to be made like your talking about. They have strict rules how their logos are being used, even if you have permission. Jeep is a brand of American automobiles that is a division of FCA US LLC (formerly Chrysler Group, LLC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Jeep has been a part of Chrysler since 1987, when Chrysler acquired the Jeep brand, along with remaining assets, from its previous owner: American

  22. error message

    provide more info. what were you doing when this happened? What cutting software on which operating system. Were you on Command HP-GL or GP-GL. How long have you owned this cutter? Ever have problems before? The more info you can provide the more someone can help you. What did Graphtec tech support tell you? That's the first place to contact. I can't find anything that has to do with an error called that and a Graphtec cutter... Try a factory reset, Hold down the UP arrow, while turning on the power button.
  23. SC cutter newbie. Need help

    Reading the specs on the cutter it says "Max Cutting Length144 in" but even so, the value cutters do not track as well as the higher end cutters. So you may get vinyl drift at that length. Shorter jobs would be better. Before you send your job, make sure you are hitting the ORIGIN button first. That is your start measuring point, The cutter will measure from that point so the design does not go off the other side of the vinyl. but you must make sure that the vinyl is wide enough to do the job. I don't use SCALP software, but I would think it has a rotate feature to which direction it is cutting on the vinyl.
  24. So are your saying you don't have any Flexi software?
  25. Graphtec ce6000 24 in

    UScutter was moving out their regular CE6000-60 vinyl cutters at that price, to sell the Graphtec CE6000-60 PLUS models. They did the same with the Graphtec CE5000-60 a few years back when the CE6000-60 were introduced. I got one at that great price. for my son.
