  1. Exploring right now. When I look at the wireframe in Signcut it looks off, SCAL 3 that I used with my old US Cutter the Illustrator file is perfect. But when I just used Signcut to cut it... It is perfect. The mystery continues!
  2. This is just crazy to me how bad it is.
  3. I use Cut Master 4(I use a mac) I've never used the Graphtec Cutting Controller I don't even see that with the Mac software.. Blade depth is set at just shy of 2mm. ( I use the PM-CT-001 to set the depth)
  4. I have been working with Graphtec support for over a month trying to troubleshoot this issue and haven't gotten anywhere so I want to ask here to see if anyone has a suggestion. When I cut fonts, Really anything under 80pts The letters end up all jagged like it couldn't figure out how to connect the circles properly. Graphtec has had me reset my unit, replace the blade holder ($100 down the drain still having the problem) I have replaced the blade. Checked to make sure the holder is in there tight and also that the Pen Block isn't loose. I ran a test with the pen in instead of the blade holder and blade and it was perfect. I am running Version 1.30-STU Condition 1 - CB09U S30 F14 A2 I only run rolls of Oracal 631 indoor vinyl. Can anyone brainstorm a different solution? The 3rd photo without writing is after changing the blade holder but still slightly getting issues that you can see on the 2 and the 9, they just aren't smooth cuts.

    MacOS update issues

    I work at an Apple Reseller and thankfully if I need to I have the tools to backtrack the operating system but was hoping for a quicker fix. I will always use Illustrator so saving as .AI doesn’t bug me. I’ll keep hunting. Graphtec support hasn’t been that quick to respond so I’ll see what they say when we start cracking at it.

    MacOS update issues

    I save everything as .ai and doesn’t allow import. To further the weirdness I did the 7 day trial of CC and import from Illustrator worked perfect. Of course it would! Gosh I am just not ready for the monthly payment.

    Workaround question. What can I save the file as from illustrator to open directly in Cut Master 4.

    MacOS update issues

    I keep getting the production manager error so it appears it is dealing with the plugin sending from illustrator CS5 to Cut Master 4. Ive installed and uninstalled and tried several times. please don’t make me upgrade to adobe CC yet.

    MacOS update issues

    I have the same exact font problem with illustrator CS5. I’m guessing somehow the plugin for illustrator is the problem with it timing out. The updates on Graphtecs site say it’s CS5 comparable so I’m not sure what’s going on.
  10. I stupidly decided to updated from MacOS 10.12 Sierra to 10.14 Mojave and now cannot get illustrator CS5 to send to Cut Master 4. I’ve uninstalled the software. Registered a new SAI code to no avail. I’m stuck and don’t know where to go from here.

    Right! I didn't know a thing like this existed. I am so stoked it worked like a charm in about 5 seconds of adjusting. One test on a scrap piece of vinyl... Viola.

    Craziest thing is I just found out it comes with an item called "PM-CT-001" it is literally a magnifying glass you stick the blade holder into and measure how far the blade is sticking out. Insane and very helpful.

    I watched a video on it. I will go over that portion again and double check what it looks like and set at.

    New CE6000-60 and getting acquainted

    Yeah if I had to say it is BARELY sticking out of the blade holder.

    There was only one time it cut on the strip when figuring out how to set the Origin after cutting some vinyl off after cuts. So the strip has one tiny cut but otherwise fine.
