    Bridge Cutting Plotter (new to me) HELP

    Aloha Everyone, Came for help. I spent a lot of hours looking for the right help, but can't find it, so I succumb to join this forum so I can post and ask the stupid question: How do I make this machine work properly? This is the computer I am using that has Windows 8 on it: *note: there is no serial or parallel port on this machine, only usb ASUS ALL-IN-ONE PC SERIES Processor: Intel ® Core 13-3220 CPU @3.30 GHz 3.30 GHz Installed memory (RAM): 6.00 GB (5.89GB useable) System Type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor Pen and Touch: No Pen or Touch input is available for this Display I'm on a kayak forum like this one, so I know when newbies come and ask the same old question that has been answered a thousand times, it gets frustrating for the "old timers". After a lot of hours though, I thought it was time to give it up (register so I can post) as I have 3 part time jobs and don't have 30 more hours to try different "search words or phrases"....Maybe you can send me a link I might have missed or just tell me step by step? Ok now....CAN ANYONE BE MY MENTOR??? I have a brand new (to me) Bridge Cutting Plotter PRO365/720/870/1100/1350 (says on the front page of the instruction manual, but I don't know which one exactly I have. The sticky label came off the machine, though the serial number is: 4078 on the silver label. What I think I need to ask though, is since I think this is a 2005/2006 machine, I think I have to use CorelDraw, but what version? I'm assuming that since this is an older machine, it won't work with a newer version of CorelDraw. I have a friend with an older model Cricut try to help me, but the installation disks didn't work and also, we can't read Chinese. Instruction manual was pretty confusing for me also (at least for us). My All-in-one computer doesn't have a serial or parallel port, only usb (which in the manual, this is the LEAST favorable way to go) The installation disks didn't seem to work as far as the drivers I need for it, or at least if there WERE drivers for it, it didn't work (and then it's proprietary, so after the 2 month eval period, I'd STILL be screwed). To figure out which model I have, the built-in ruler goes from 0-28 inches, but the plotting pen starts at 3 inches, so I'm assuming it's actually a 25 inch cutter/plotter? Does this make it a PRO720 or a PRO870 ?? I got this machine from a girl that bought it brand new some years ago, took it out of the box, and never touched it after that. THANKS IN ADVANCE FH (Frustrated in Hawaii) p.s. On my friend's Cricut, he got an older version, so he tried Inkscape, and he said it was nasty, the graphics and came out really bad and fuzzy when he uploaded images. He found "sure cuts a lot" and it works AWESOME!! SUPER user friendly, etc. but he looked it up and it doesn't work for my machine

    Cutting help

    okay guys, i am new and i just tried my first cut with the sc cutter. NOTHING came out clean and EVERYTHING was ragged and rigged… any body know why?
  10. I am in the middle of a shirt order and the vinyl doesn't want to peel away from the plastic. I've never had this happen before. I have tried increasing the temperature and time but it doesn't seem to matter. The only way I can get it to release is by pressing very hard with the weeding tools and carefully peeling away. I am using the Siser EasyWeed in white.

    Cutting help!?

    Hello I am new here so work with me if I am not 100% sure what I'm talking about. I am using Sure Cuts A Lot Pro and I can get the image onto the screen correctly but when I go to cut it everything cuts correctly except that the 2 and the 6 end up on top of the 1 and the 1. I have tried everything to get it to not happen this way but nothing seems to work. I have attached the image so what I am saying makes a little more sense. Also i was sent items as eps or ai (not sure what that means) and when I try to open them in the program Sure Cuts a lot Pro they are not compatible with it or just wont open in it, the only thing I can do is print them and then scan them back to the computer, what do I do?
  16. Hi everyone! I probably put this in the wrong category, but i need some advice on application tape. Is there such a thing as one "Perfect" Application Tape ? Up to now I've been making do with clear contact paper or Oracal Tape sheets from the craft store. It gets pricey this way in the long run, and I am thinking of making the leap to ordering a roll of application tape. I use Oracal 631 and I have some Greenstar that I use for exterior projects. , Once I'm out of Greenstar, I'll likely switch over to 651 for our out door projects. Here's what I'm looking for: 1-Can be used for Oracal 631 and the occasional GreenStar project. (if that's possible). 2-I'd also like it to be clear (a paper that has some transparency would be OK too) because I occasionally come up wth a design that is multi-colored so I need to see my registration marks. 3- something that won't drive complaints back to me if I have someone else do the application. 4- Last but not least, needs to be available in 15" width. I appreciate the your feed back! I'm just not sure what to order and I feel sort of overwhelmed with all choices. Thanks again....

    total noob

    hi guys and sorry if some of this is in the wrong place..... I found your forum when doing a google search today I am based in the UK and have a Silhouette Cameo cutting machine and am currently buying a ce5000-60 My wife and I have been designing and making some decals for cars..... I have noticed the Silhouette studio and the Graphtec studio are like identical, however neither allow me to save a file as a vector to be used by our clothing company which is a real pain. I have tried to use Illustrator and traced my png files, and I have tried to print from the software to pdf and load it in and trace it, but I am not happy with the quality. so my questions are if your able to help or point me in the right direction. is there a way I can get all my Silhouette files to load in my Graphtec studio? ( otherwise I am likely to have t printscreen each project/layer and trace in the Graphtec ) is there an easier way to get my files to a vector file for others to work with? and any tips anyone had for me would be great many thanks in advance.....

    Seal vinyl

    I am trying to seal a vinyl cutout to a dish. I saw online a person painted something on top so that the vinyl wouldn't peel off and I can't seem to find what product I need to use. I want to be able to cutout monograms etc and put them on some vintage dishes I have. I have used Blair spray, liquitex and several other sprays as well as heat and none of them make the vinyl not peel up. The one I have was given to me as a gift from the etsy business, but all she would tell me was that she didn't use a spray. HELP!!! Does anyone know what product I need to use. The dish I have you can't see brush strokes or even tell where something was put ontop of the vinyl, it just has no edges where it can be peeled off.

    Shrinkage problems HELP!

    Having some issues with my Geo Knight 25s Heat Press. I'm sublimating lycra blend fabric panels, and have two different heat presses to work with. The 25s is shrinking the fabric excessively, and causing the color to come out very saturated and darker than when pressed on the other machine. We've tried pressing anywhere from 300 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, at anywhere from 25 seconds to 1 minute. Any help would be much appreciated, as i am up against a deadline and cant find the answer anywhere. Please Help!!
  23. Hello all, My names Mike & Id just like to start off with I'm new to the page and the vinyl world as well. I apologize for posting in the wrong section ( If I even did, I tried my hardest not to ). I have done research for the past month now on vinyl and plotters ETC and having trouble getting to understand it all. I want to open a small out of home business doing decals for cars (Im on many different car pages with thousands of people on each) and maybe even making banners depending on how successful I become at it all. I also use a Macbook Pro 13" laptop and see some issues with that alone but then I see some greats and how Mac is the way to go. My overall question is I see two starter kits I feel is good but just not 100% sure for what I want to do. One is the Vinyl Cutter Bundle - Sign Cutting Plotter w/ Sure Cuts A Lot Pro Design Sale 31.5" Laserpoint II, Tools, Supplies, Tot Value $1,200+ Off Ebay threw UScutter and The other is the SC basic business kit. PLEASE HELP, as to not wanting to spend a crazy amount upfront and just want to get my feet wet to make back what I put into it and after that start to profit. - THANK YOU IN ADVANCE _ Mike

    Im Such a Newb!!

    Hey!! I'm completely new to this whole world of cutters, and I have a US Cutter Laserpoint II. I need some guidance with the SCAL Pro software (or if anyone can suggest other softwares to use with it). I've been trying to cut this "Paul Walker" quote, vinyl decal for my car, but every time i import an image and try to cut it, it's just a complete mess of overlapping cuts. Is there any way to make the image a solid image and not have all the little random cut pieces in it (if that makes any sense at all) PLEASE H E L P & Thanks!! -Reina
