    What clear application tape for Oracal 951 vinyl?

    Every stripe that I ship and I ship plenty, only has paper tape. No complaints. If vinyl is squeegeed good, it shouldn't come off the surface. Or the vehicle was not clean. had wax etc. Or old vinyl.

    What clear application tape for Oracal 951 vinyl?

    clear tape is not flexible enough to use on compound curves. It does not stretch. Best to use for flat surfaces and only dry. Paper tape would be the best to use on curves. Plus you can wet paper tape, you cannot wet clear tape. You should practice more with paper tape.

    Hi!

    Static doesn't matter how many times you cut the design before, or which direction you cut it. It also helps to reset your cutter after each cut to dump the data from the previous order.

    Hi!

    Most likely static from the vinyl. Make sure you grounded the cutter to the stand if you have one. Try wiping your cutter with dryer sheets, Spray static guard like sprays in the area. dryer sheet in the vinyl roll. . To figure out if it is static, use the pen tool, it this doesn't happen then more likely static. You never stated how big the design is, if a large design, it could be memory. Those cutters are very prone to static problems as well as memory problems. It's a bottom of the barrel cutter. Those value cutters are better off being ran on a serial cable or a Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter. That is the brand name. Those cutters do not have True USB. We advise new people to stay away from this cutter.

    Graphtec ce5000-60

    Maybe you don't have both designs selected when you cut. Sure Cuts A Lot software has problems. Cheap software on a great cutter. . Find better software.

    Graphtec CE6000-60

    The software is on the website. You can download it now. Actually some of the Graphtec software are lower end versions of Flexi products. I use a bare bones Flexi products. You can use FREE Signblazer, but it is very old software, Many on here still use it. I wouldn't know about vinyl on concrete. You would have to test it first and have it pretty clean.

    Graphtec CE6000-60

    Graphtec already has software, can be found on the Graphtec site. but I use Flexi. Great choice to go with a Graphtec.

    There isn't any set in stone settings for any machine, each machine is different, including the same model. Cut slow. You have to set your blade depth correctly first. This is how. . 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.
  9. I am a Graphtec owner. I think the CE-6000-60 is pretty close to the same price as the Roland. Many Graphtec owners here. And yes, it does advance after cut.
  10. Look it up, They are 2 different wired cables.
  11. Most software at the top of the layout screen is HELP. Go read about it. It should explain every feature in Cut Studio. Only people who have Cut Studio are Roland people, and not too many on here. Also Roland has a user forum. Roland is your tech support, why not contact them?
  12. You have made no mention of which cutting software you are using, But that feature is usually in the cutting software.
  13. Just any ol' serial to USB will not work on a vinyl cutter. The only one that always works is a Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter. And check out the user manual in UScutter.com support, if you have not already. Find the best price. example only https://www.ebay.com/itm/TRIPP-LITE-USA-19HS-Keyspan-High-Speed-USB-to-Serial-Adapter-Free-ship/273641976846?hash=item3fb655340e:g:ekYAAOSwdHpcMaHO:rk:9:pf:0

    He has a Graphtec CE3000-120
  17. I just downloaded 3 , just to look at it. You can turn off the updates on it in preferences. It does not ask for email address, or registration.
  18. I have been using Flexistarter for years. (2006) with my Graphtec. Which is also made by SAI, but has a USB dongle. You don't need to be online.
  19. I would think Verification is a 1 time thing, but reading the user manual, you are connecting to SAI cloud server each time you use it. Page 16 of user manual. Are you having a problem?

    Pick up an older XP, computer. You can get them cheap. I have been running on XP since 2006.on my Graphtec. XP is very stable. You don't need a newer computer to run a vinyl cutter. Then you can transfer your files SATA to SATA. Have you tried to download the driver that says 8/7/Vista/XP anyway? Many models still use the same drivers.
