MiMiLi posted a topic in GraphTec Cutting Plotter DiscussionI've not had any experience with contour cutting in the past and have recently attempted to teach myself how to do this for simple stickers to add to my product packaging. I use Illustrator CS6 with the Cutting Master 3 plugin. Since I'm an extreme tightwad, I tried using my laser printer and pen attachment to get everything set up, but immediately ran into difficulties with either scanning the registration marks or cutting accurate paths on the cutter. There were numerous different error messages, depending upon what settings I began with, but the bottom line was that I was NOT having any consistent results, neither good nor bad. Then I decided to try switching to my inkjet printer, which I rarely use because it costs so much more per print (did I mention I'm a tightwad?)... and... VOILA! I discovered that the Graphtec apparently does not like laser prints for contour cutting. As I said, I'm a newbie to this arena, so I'm just wondering if this is a commonly known issue? I haven't seen it in my searches here or elsewhere, so any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
Hi! I have had my machine for about 2 years now. I took my blade out to clean it and when I went to replace it, it was no longer cutting... as if the blade wasn't going all teh way down even though I inserted it correctly. I thought maybe it was just time to replace the blade so I put in a new one but it's still having the same issue. I'm not quite sure what to do. It'll go through the motions as if it's cutting and some pieces seem to maybe cut a bit, but other just seem like the vinyl is untouched or was just skimmed. The blade has been put back correctly though, I'm not sure what's going on. Any suggestions on what to do or what to change?!
Hello, all. My name is Rick and I am new to vinyl cutting. My wife has a Cricut and it seems like I took over it because of my sudden fascination in the vinyl cutting/business. I now plan to get [way] more serious and want to invest in a more advanced cutter. I am a serious believer in "buying once" instead of purchasing mediocre machines that will just lead me to purchasing "the one I need". With that said, I have been looking in to Roland and Graphtec, which appear to be leaders in the industry. I was sold on Roland first because, well, its ROLAND, but then I saw many YouTube videos on Graphtec and loved the on-board screen and looked very easy to configure. I should mention that I am in IT and pretty savvy when it comes to computers and menus, but I am all for ease of use. I recently went to a local supplier and they were recommending the Roland (GS-24) because software was easier to use, and the machine itself had American measurements, unlike Graphtec (CE6000-60 Plus) which uses metric measurements in their system. Not sure how true that is and if that is really an issue, but I made a mental note, nonetheless. NOTE: The local shop had the Roland on sale for right under $1600 (with stand), and the Graphtec was right under $1800. Maybe they were just trying to push Rolands out due to the sale they had going. So my questions are below. Please answer all or any of them. Anything helps a newbie like me and will be greatly appreciated: 1.) Which cutting/design software is more intuitive and also has more advanced features between Roland and Graphtec? 2.) Is there a third-party cutting/design software that is being used by people in the industry, instead of the factory-supplied, that will work on both machines? I am not talking about Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator. 3.) Is the metric measurement on the Graphtec really something to be concerned about? 4.) GRAND QUESTION: Which is a better cutter overall (i.e., able to cut more intricate details, on-board screen is easier to use, more reliable)? I realize that my last question is very vague. If anyone knows of any pros/cons on both, please let me know. Thanks in advance for your help! I'm eager to see your comments. -Rick
