    Cuts being off on designs

    More to the crazy equation and I am thinking the machine is bad at this point. I have tried everything I can think of. I moved the paper to the complete opposite side of the machine I don't normally use. I have used the pen instead of the blade. Cut the same design both ways and getting the same results. Attached is the image that is 24x37inches. I set my cutter to the edge of the paper, I watched it the entire time and tracked the paper and the paper didn't move. The head ended an inch right to where it started. Also on an arm of the decal it happened twice in a row cutting the same exact pattern that the straight line went squigley for no reason. Twice. The exact same place. Flipped it over used the pen. SAME EXACT THING. All this only happens on designs over 24-inches it appears. I just cut this design in 3 different smaller sizes and they all cut perfect.

    Which model do you suggest? I see the FC-8600-75 for 30inch. I usually don't do over 24-inch cuts.

    Cuts being off on designs

    I am not pulling on them usually. This has been happening now on 5 different orders the machine is just going wonky. I re-installed the software this morning, Ran a 20x44inch square and It looked good until I went to weed it and it didn't match up several corners so it is still not cutting correctly.

    Skeeter how do I calibrate the cutter again? I was trying to find info to reset the cutter. Everything is business as usual but it just seems like it is screwing up A LOT these days

    Cuts being off on designs

    I do about 15 designs a week I cut on my US Cutter Laserpoint II. I am now starting to get issues with cuts starting to be completely off. Attached is how it cuts and how it is designed. This is happening more and more with other designs but this is by far the worst. I have not changed anything on my computer. I am using a Mac running 10.12.6 and sure cuts a lot 3 pro. I am wondering what is causing this issue now and how to rectify the issue I am burning through a lot of vinyl with incorrect cuts now.

    What material and how to achieve?

    What material and how to achieve?

    I have always liked MacBook decals but does anyone know a material or process to do like a "skin" that has a colored image on the top of the mac? I have used printable vinyl before but they are not that great of quality and wouldn't hold up the wear and tear of being on a laptop. Looking for suggestions!

    Photo tex self-adhesive cutting question

    I will try to cut a hair more pressure with the 60-degree blade and see how it works.

    Photo tex self-adhesive cutting question

    I am using a US Cutter Laserpoint II and when cutting this is what I get. It peels and strings the fabric when it cuts. Is there better settings I should be using? I was cutting at 300 speed and pressure of around 39 I believe. I usually cut my oracle vinyl at about 19. Also using a new blade and it is a 45Degree blade. Suggestions?

    .AI Reg Marks to SCAL 3 Pro issues

    Based on some suggestions I received from other people I did the following and it worked for me. I calibrated the laser on my unit rather than using SCAL3. I set SCAL 3 calibration to default with was Zeros. I also started before contour cutting and moving the blade from the program in the print + Cut option approx 1 inch diagonally off the corner of hash mark 3.

    Thanks Skeeter. Always helpful.

    issues contour cutting

    Yeah I set laser value to zero and line up the blade and almost cut on the same darn line. Which is the wrong line at that.
