  1. Try a different cutting software. Signblazer is free use the setup exe download Try the Copam CP-2500 model Command HP-GL http://www.uscuttersupport.com/downloads/Software/SignBlazer/ On Windows 10 does the driver show up in Printers for the Graphtec Ce5000? You could also try a trial of VinylMaster Demo And see if you can at least connect to USB https://vinylmaster.software/ Free demo
  2. Did you put the cutter command on GPGL? It must be for Cutting master
  3. Are you sure that the driver installed correctly.? Have you tried a different USB cable.? Which computer operating system? Which cutting software are you using?

    Some suitable products for Plasterboard wall

    I can tell you, I do not do wall decals, never have and never will. I have expressed numerous times on here that I would not add wall decals to my business. Too many variables with walls and paint.

    Sturdier Skeeter said of the fc series :O

    I like them being tall, you don't have to bend over at all working with it. And very nice sturdy rollers to hold the vinyl rolls. There is a reason they are a bit more expensive, they are built great.

    Both of mine can slide in front and back to be out of the way.

    My FC7000 30" just came in 2 boxes also. No pallet. Fed ex or UPS. No part of the stands were with my cutters in the box. Stands had their own box. The feet of that cutter looked longer. Maybe because of the way that the catch basket is connected. It could be still the same.

    Is that a 30"? A 30" only weighs 108 pounds total. And that is between 2 boxes. No pallet needed. Did they throw bricks in it or something? LOL When my FC8000 was delivered A FedEX Lady carried the boxes by herself to my house from the truck. LOL But YES they are well built. It's nice that they have wheels on them. I hope you make a ton of money with it.

    First impressions of the Prismcut P28

    There is an older CE 5000 and Craft Robo Pro software doing the score crease and cut to make boxes. Video. on youtube.

    First impressions of the Prismcut P28

    I have only seen a couple people on here with a Prismcut. There is a Skycut shown on youtube that has dual heads, One for creasing and one for cutting. One on each side of the carriage head.

    You might want to do a little searching on Ebay or Fbook Marketplace. Many times you can find a good used FC for the price of a new value cutter. I got my last FC 8000-75 for $1000 free ship. I don't know where you live, but someone might need the money.

    The pounce tool is pretty awesome also. There are plenty of good used Graphtec FC still out there.

    The Graphtec has a creasing tool which would work for the FC units. https://www.google.com/search?q=Graphtec+Creasing+tool&oq=Graphtec+Creasing+tool&aqs=chrome..69i57.8495j0j15&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

    Not really . I really don't understand what your trying to do. A Graphtec can set different conditions. You can set 8 different conditions. for cutting. pre set. You can't do that on a Prism cut. A Graphtec can Perf cut. like dotted lines, That is using 2 different conditions. And you won't hurt the cutting strip. You would need a carrier sheet on a Prismcut to not damage the cutting strip. The Graphtec has 2 different places to put the blade holder. 1 place so your not hurting the cutting strip and 1 for regular cutting over the cutting strip. Maybe you should look thru the user manual and see how the Graphtec operates more.

    Your using the wrong terminology in this business. Vinyl cutters do not die cut. A member Darcshadow described it pretty good back on another post "And just a point of clarification, die cutting is done with custom made dies which are stamped onto the media and cut it, kind of like a cookie cutter cutting through dough".
  16. I see they changed how the catch basket is on it installed. Not sure I like that. Even the FC7000 and FC8000. came different also. But that FC9000 is totally different. I hope you like it and it works much better for you.
  17. Wait til you see how much taller and sturdier it is.
  18. Yippie! can't wait to hear you oooooh and awwwwe about it. Great choice. I also told you maybe you should hang onto the CE6000. LOL

    First Cut

    There are no set in stone settings for any vinyl cutter, or vinyl. Even the same model can be different. It is posted on this forum literally hundreds of times how to set your blade depth. Blade depth is set for the different vinyls that you use. Blade depth instructions are in Instructional Contributions, on this forum. If you would have written blade depth in the upper right search bar, it would have taken you to many, many posts to set the blade depth correctly Blade depth is set the same way for any brand of vinyl cutter. 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

    flexi starter p-cut 8.5v2

    do you have a USB dongle for it? If so, maybe you can contact SAI and give them your user ID. Or do you have the user ID written somewhere? If you ever get it again, just throw it in an email draft for yourself. Then you will have it in the future.

    Titan 2 Contour Cutting Problems

    Just from doing some reading about a Saga, which the Titan2 is a rebranded Saga. I do see that there is a sensor on the left side of the machine, in the back. And that sensor will restrict the carriage head from traveling further to the left. I don't know if that is your problem or whether you cutter is considered old firmware or the newer firmware. New firmware gives the oversize error. But you could also get that carriage restriction from not having the ORIGIN further to the right on the machine, on the older firmware machine.. Looking at your designs, your carriage head is being stopped from traveling to the left. This may or may not be the problem. Just throwing that out there. I don't know where you are starting your cuts at on the right side or where you place your ORIGIN.

    Titan 2 Contour Cutting Problems

    how wide is the design? Is the design within the area that can be cut on your machine? What ever size you have. Is your area in Scalp wide enough for the design? Can the cutter cut past your pinch rollers? Some cutters like the Graphtec cannot. They have a magnet stopping from cutting past the pinch rollers.

    34" SC2, is it worth it? *upgrade*

    I haven't heard of that cutter having the static problems like the MH does. People just use dryer sheets in the vinyl rolls. Spray Static Guard type sprays. Run a humidifier. Ground your cutter to the stand. There is a video that shows it. https://www.uscutter.com/Anti-Static-Kit-for-Vinyl-Cutters

    34" SC2, is it worth it? *upgrade*

    When buyers come here asking about the MH cutters, we always suggest the SC2. Too many problems we see on the current MH cutter. Sometimes people go ahead and buy them , then regret it, and send them back for the SC2. People seem to be pretty happy with the SC2.
  25. I have seen people select the wrong cutter also and it does this. But OP claims they don't even know which cutter was chosen in Vinyl Master.. Pretty easy to check in Vinyl Spooler. They didn't answer that question. My Demo only has Laserpointer 11 on it. Doesn't make sense that only part of the TEST cut is good. Wish they would post a picture of the TEST cut right from the cutter. (Not Pen)
