  1. Red box lower picture, Why do you have it on User defined? That is not default. Check your setup in Cutting Master. I have owned my FC7000 since 2008 and I have never upgraded the firmware on it. You can run that cutter on Free Signblazer. on HP-GL also if you are on Windows.
  2. That is great news. Now you can get the whole 15" wide cuttable area. And it is cheaper than the Punched version. Maybe others noticed it, but I just saw it in an email from USCutter.
  3. I can't find a service manual for the CE6000. but maybe the service manual for the CE5000 might get you there. (09-9370).pdf

    ORACAL 651 15" Vinyl now comes unpunched.

    Main tape is 15" That is all I have used for many years. Some of the Rtape is 15" also. I have an Ebay seller that I have bought from for years. I use Main medium tack paper tape.
  5. Also, are you using a carrier sheet to contour cut on? If not, how are you perf cutting without ruining your cutting strip? I know it can be done on the FC units, because I have them. It has the 2nd hole in the carriage head and groove below. The American CE6000, does not have that. Is your cutter from Graphtec America?
  6. .eps is a universal file. Where are you creating the file? Dakota knows plenty about printing.
  7. Graphtec Studio for a Mac. can open .eps files. (Not talking about Pro version) From this page GS software. Just go to File>Open> At the bottom of the box (dropdown box) change it encapsulated post script. .eps.... bring in your file from wherever it is located.
  8. Anything past 8.5 version is not Mac compatible anyway. SAI Cloud is for Windows. Unless you run as Windows on a Mac.

    Signblazer. I use Google and it starts downloading in the left corner as soon as I click on it. And if you use .ai files, you will need to save them back to a version 8 .eps file. The software has not been upgraded for years. Owner passed away years back. I personally use a bare bones Flexistarter 8.6 with my Graphtec and never have problems.

    The cutter is not too old. Your cutting software is. It is not for Windows 10 as I have already explained to you. Flexi 8.0 is for XP and older. That cutter can still be connected to the latest version of Vinyl Master, Or newer Flexi software. It would be on Flexistarter. Or probably Signcut. I know it is listed for Vinyl Master. I already looked it up. I have the FC7000-MK2-75 That FC7000 is also listed on FREE Signblazer/ which they are running on Windows 10

    Does the Flexi 8 software have a USB dongle? Like USB flash drive? You do not need a Windows 10 computer to run a vinyl cutter. Possibly pick up an older XP and run the software, on what it should be ran on. I am still running on XP, no problems. Possibly buy newer software, or download and try Signblazer. That's all I got.

    I would try doing a System Restore on your computer, back a week or so. Flexi 8 should be running on XP and older PC. I read in past posts you were running it on Windows 10, it could be a Windows 10 update causing a problem.

    Something a little stronger than Oracle 631 for wall decals?

    Many times it is just user error. Not cleaning the walls. Paint with teflon in it to stop to keep dirt sticking to it. People painting walls and not waiting long enough to cure before putting up decals. I see a lot of complaints on sellers using Wall decals, which is why I have never gotten into it. Too many reasons, to stop them from sticking. Maybe try the GreenStar indoor. From the color charts if appears to be General Formulations vinyl. I use the outdoor General Formulations without any problems. I used some Oracal 651 on a wall here. It came right off, heating it up with a hair dryer before peeling it off.
  14. Yep, that is what the thumbnail shows. I was able to look at the properties on it. It was too new of a file for my software. . It was done in Flexi Sign Pro Cloud.

    Decal Storage

    I cut the long side out of Oracal vinyl boxes 50 yd x 24" and 30". My vinyl pieces are rolled up and standing in these boxes with sizes written on them. You can see the colors very easy. I have the boxes just sitting on the floor side by side.
  16. I tried it with Flexidesigner 10, nothing there.
  17. Well that makes more sense. This is from SUPPORT on how to contour cut, with Vinyl Master.
  18. What is Mastercut software? Never heard of it.
  19. Yes, you can turn them off. It's in advanced settings. Disable the push roller sensor. I also disabled the media sensor, so that it did not measure the vinyl at start up.. I just place the carriage head where I want it and push ORIGIN. I just send my design after prefeed.
  20. You can turn the pinch rollers off. I turned mine off day 1, 11 years ago. FC Unit, and the CE5000, you could do the same. It will cut right up to the vinyl edge. Hit the ORIGIN button before you send cut. I have told CE6000 users before how to do it.
  21. As I stated before, put the pinch rollers about an inch in from the edge of the vinyl. The roller marks will not hurt the vinyl. I even use a tape measure sometimes, Measure side of roller out to the vinyl edge. Why does the vinyl look so rippled up in front and not laying flat?
  22. possibly show a picture of the vinyl loaded across the front of the machine. Like stand back and take a picture of the vinyl loaded, so we can see pinch rollers and all.
  23. Do you have enough vinyl slack to do the entire order? You should never be pulling from the roll while cutting. Are you prefeeding your vinyl for the order? Is there gouges/scratches in your cutting strip from having the blade too far exposed? Take the blade out of the holder and look at it. That 2nd C looks like tracking problem. Is that a weed box, you cut around it with the cutter? If so, it is not even the same width, left to right, top to bottom. Which is tracking.

    Cutting direction question

    On any vinyl cutter, you must push the Orgin button on the machine. . That is 0/0 and where the cutter starts measuring the design from. Most cutters start cutting, where the design was originally designed at. I Use a Graphtec, and Flexi software. I cut very large designs. My cutter may move several feet, before it starts cutting, but it comes back to finish the rest of the design at the front. Is there a reason that you choose Scalp software over Vinyl Master software? Scalp was created for hobby cutters like the Cricut. Vinyl Master was created for the sign industry business. Just throwing that out there.
