    Sublimation colors are dull

    You pressed from the backside of the coaster through to the paper? I always put the heat directly to the paper.

    Printer disappearing

    Ongoing issue with my surface pro 3 running windows 8.1 Pro. Every time I’m away for a couple weeks, I try to print sub projects but my printer is not listed. Not sure, but it seems to do it every time window updates. Does anyone else have this issue? Any fix??

    round text anti clockwise ?

    How do you arc the upper & lower like “FLIGHTLINE”? (for those that don’t know)

    New SCALPS4PRO Update version 4.064 is out.

    I have two computers with two different versions.... one is like 4.042 one is 4.046. I’ve “checked for updates” on both, both say “up to date”. Lol

    Cutting HTV with CE6000

    Another thing is speed. The slowest speed on this thing is still pretty fast, especially for 1/4" text. IMG_0238.MOV

    Cutting HTV with CE6000

    Yes. This is actually the second one we've had. USCutter warranted the first one after throwing everything new at it. You put HTV on a mat and it does fine. If you run it through without a mat, it bunches up when advancing. Makes a mess with small cuts. They both do the same thing. The space between the roller and blade is 15/16 of an inch. Our SC is a lot closer. Vinyl doesn't have enough room to wrinkle.
  7. Who all uses one for htv? How is fine detail? I'm CURRENTLY running a Titan2, but I'm almost ready to throw it in the trash. I expected a lot more from an $800 machine.

    how to load straight

    If you figure out a way to prevent the HTV from bunching up between the pinch roller and blade tip, please let me know. This is a major flaw I've noticed with mine. And I've had two of them. .The space between from the contact point of the wheel and the blade is dern near a full inch. That allows the HTV to wrinkle when vinyl advances forward. It cause major headaches when cutting small detail. My SC doesn't bunch, but the stepper won't handle small stuff. I'm about one more bunch of wasted vinyl from demanding a refund/credit toward a Graphtec.
  9. Sweet. I tried gimp once, I think it's actually still on our dinosaur PC. LOL I'll give this a try. Much appreciated.
  10. Gonna do all sublimation or printed transfers.
  11. Thanks guys. I was hoping I could use their file so everything would match. No way I can match all the "antiquing". Lol
  12. I'm using CS6. I know there's an easy way to do it. When I do a trace, it looks like crap. I need the black completely gone in case I need the "text" in a different color and on various color substrates in the future. Any direction is greatly appreciated.
  13. First off, let me apologize for digging up an old thread; but I wouldn't if it wasn't still an issue with the Titan 2. First off, you can't change offset for a test cut. Offset on the Titan 2 can only be changed in the cut software. I bought one, cut great for a while then went to crap. US Cutter sent 2 mother boards, carriage, etc etc etc. I was using SCAL4P, Vinyl Master, Sign Blazer.... wasn't a software issue. So they sent me a refund and I bought another cutter. This one cut great then all of a sudden went to crap. Incomplete cuts, places here or there (never the same place) where it APPEARS to be an offset issue, but it's never consistent therefore I do not believe it to be offset. New blades, pressure, etc..... nothing changes it. It only does it on small objects. It's like it is running to fast to keep up, even on the slowest speed setting. I have complained to them about the pinch rollers being further away from the blade, which causes slight bunching of the vinyl (HTV). But it also looks like crap with adhesive vinyl. My SC cutter will look just as good at times. I expected a lot more from a machine that cost 5 times as much. EDIT: Let me add that when it all of a sudden started cutting like crap, I had to up the offset to 0.60 just to get a square to cut without rounding corners. BOTH machines did the same thing.

    Heatpress bit the dust

    We had a cheapy a couple years and it almost burnt our house down. The control unit shorted and turned the platen on heating the pad until it started smoldering. Currently own a US Cutter press. Had it around a year.

    WTH am I doing wrong???

    Have a customer wanting 12X24 coroplast signs. They want a 1" border all the way around, 1/2" inside the edge. First one went on without a hitch, now I've blown though at least SEVEN consecutive border pieces. I have app tape secured with no bubbles, get everything aligned (which is an ordeal in itself), then start on one side and start applying. When I get to the end, I am sure to help it pull away from the liner so it won't wrinkle underneath itself, then it happens. There's a wrinkle, bubble or something that causes excess slack on one side or the other. I'm about at wit's end with this thing. Any ideas??
