    Certain letters don't get cut

    Did you try to weld it in Flexi first, auto weld did not change anything in production manager, are you just cutting in flexi, from AI?
  2. I use Flexi 8.6v2 on windows 10 & 8.1, with no issues.

    Here's an old Indy Car from the 70's that my uncle and cousin painted and stripped, and another from 1980. That's my Uncle on the far right & his son in the cowboy hat. I used to love watching them paint and the smell of turps and paint, oh..and a few beers and shots were consumed while doing so. My cousin is still doing it at the ripe young age of 76. And all was done freehand, no masking tapes involved
  6. I run my Graphtec outside in my garage yearound, and my vinyl never ripples up like that. What brand of vinyl is it?
  7. Is the Blade holder carriage tight on the rail?
  8. Time to back up those files you've been putting off.....

    Those pins are for interchangeable platens, I have a GK label press that has them. As far as the wire I have no idea. Call Geo. Knight, they are very helpful

  13. Do you have the work for a 52" machine or do you want it because it's big and within your budget, or for the wow factor? Do you have the space for it and a work area big enough to weed and apply the transfer tape, much less laying it down in one pass? I would get a higher end machine, and save yourself a lot of aggravation in the long run. Plus the fact that those big rolls of vinyl can get expensive, not to mention the waste (and shrinkage from laying around because of not being used) if you only need a much smaller decal. Just my 2 cents...

  15. It says unexpected file format, you sure it's a Flexi file or even a vector?

    Need Help With Size Problem

    It could be because, production manager is including the weed border, click on options and see what the weed border is set at.

    Stahls Cap Press

    I don't like the auto open on my Stahls 16x20, when it pops up that's were you get the ghosting from, IMO, so I took it off.

    Need Help to find correct Font on this Boat

    got a better picture?
  21. select the text, use ctrl+m, that will "compound" {or go to arrange and select compound from there} the image and your holes will be knocked out, if you will. On another note if you typed the text out, there is no need to vectorize or trace it, it is already in vector format

    Screen Printing ?

    I have, they were good except the image that I used it on was kind of small, and I had to re-heat the transfer, because I added another type of decoration to the shirt, but I would use it again.
