Just got the CE6000-60 and have been slowly getting it set up over the weekend. I am using Cut Master 4 with it from my Mac.
I have watched countless videos on setup etc and just have a few questions I couldn't find the answer for or still unsure of.
1. First is blade pressure. I only use Oracle 631 indoor vinyl. Is there a perfect pressure that I should be on? I am on the default #1 cutting condition at the moment. I Couldn't find what the settings should be for this 631 vinyl which surprised me. When I make my cuts there were sometimes around corners of fonts that is seemed to almost cut through the vinyl backing but on the normal straight sections I could barely feel the imprint on the backing paper.
I did notice when I tested my blade depth on a test page where you draw a circle and check if it cut through the backing paper, that it was almost difficult to draw a circle and wasn't smooth. Is it possible my blade is not properly rotating inside the blade holder?
2. As for as Cut Master 4, Is there a way to send multiple designs into have cut. With SCAL 3 I used to use I could export files from Illustrator and in SCAL 3 you could arrange different designs to get the most space taken up on a cut. I understand I could just do this in Illustrator and send it over as one image but it is just extra steps.
3. I will make a cut from a roll, use the down arrow to move the vinyl and cut it, than set it aside and work on another design and cut, I was confused at first because It didn't know where the front edge of the vinyl was anymore and would cut off the paper etc. I stumbled upon the "origin" button. Is this what I should be doing, or is there a way to once again have the cutter search for the front of the vinyl.
I am always changing rolls and don't want to turn the machine on/off between each roll to find the front. So am I hitting "origin" after lining up each roll?
4. Final question (for now) The roller bars in the back holding the vinyl roll, On my US Cutter Laserpoint I could spin that roller for days it seemed. These on the CE6000 seem very stiff almost (don't worry I don't have the roll lock on), like they don't spin very much, Maybe this is how it is suppose to be but I don't want the machine tugging on the roll after it gets through the slack and taking the vinyl off track.
Thanks for your help if you can answer any of the questions!
