  1. Overlapping Cuts

    We are having an issue where the art looks fine in Flexi. Cut lines look good and where they are supposed to be. Then the Summa overlaps two letters. Does the first 3 just fine. Then it's like the knife doesn't move over far enough and cuts the 4th letter on top of the 3rd. Any suggestions? Is it a setting issue? We haven't had this issue before so we have no clue how to trouble shoot it. Thanks! Sharon

I want to be abtle to type letters in the program for my designs. Thank you.
  4. Hi there! I've been trying this on and off for months but I just cannot get it to work. I have happily been using my Creation PCUT CS630 in Corel Draw to cut vinyl (using the special plugin), but I really want to start contour cutting, which I don't think can be done in Corel and can only be done by using software like Signblazer and Flexi. I have Flexi 10 and my cutter will not cut at all. The furthest I get is after clicking the final 'Send' button, the cutter recognises something but then displays 'Working... COM1-CONNECTION'. It stays on this screen so I have to just turn the cutter off to remove it. I think i'm doing most things right. I plug the cutter in via the USB cable that came with the cutter, I find the correct port in device manager, in Flexi I choose my cutter along with the correct port. There could be just one little option that needs to be enabled or disabled but I have no-idea. I also using Windows XP so I don't think it's a problem with the operating system being too new or something like that. I also tried it on Windows 7 and the same thing happened. Any help would be very much appreciated. I'm so tired of trying! Thanks!

  8. Hi guys, i'm from Argentina and i have a creation pcut for more than 3 years and worked fine 'till now. Suddenly started making random cuts on the vinlyl. In the attached file you can see it, it seems like the head randomly goes to 0 and goes back. The artwork is made in illustrator and cutted with FlexiSTARTER 10.5.

  9. Titan 3 Contour cutting with Flexi 12

    Can anyone give me any tips or settings for contour cutting with a Titan 3 with Flexi. The calibration cuts are perfect in VinylMaster, but the cutter wont recognize the marks in Flexi. After it tries to find the first one it runs the material off the machine, and the rollers run continuously. It won't pause, if you reset it, it just starts running again. I have even un plugged it and it started running again. The only way I have gotten it to stop was to turn off the computer. I feel it's a problem with Flexi, but cant figure it out. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

  13. Flexi HELP!!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKXd1iC60PI Can someone tell me how to scale using pictures like at 1:40 Of this link... Please and THANK YOU!!
  14. I've recently started playing around with contour cutting. Basically, I ordered some 8.5x11 vinyl for my desktop printer, to print and cut with. I am using Draw X5 for my design, and then Flexi 8.1 for my print and contour cutting. I print my design out with my printer, usually just one decal, instead of a whole page. I use FlexiSign Pro 8.1 to make my contour, and it also prints the Reg marks for me properly and all that jazz, I use my MH721 plotter with the Pen tool to help line me reg marks up, I can usually get them right on, yet my contour cut doesn't come out right. I don't really know where to go from here. It seems like its just stretching out my contour or maybe my print didn't scale correctly, not totally sure. Maybe someone can help me solve this problem. I've had success contour cutting with this same setup, but only on small items, or very very simple contours. (On the images attached, the rectangle is from me playing with the Compensation factor, which lines up good. Roughly 0.015625 of an inch off. That small margin should cause the contour to be that far off.) Any suggestions? It would be super nice to get this to work somehow, would really help out my business and my turn around times for the customers who order 8.5x11 sheets of decals.
  15. Flexi and everyone elses problems

    I have seen a load of posts about the Flexi Software and the USCutter Series cutters not cutting correctly. Stopping half way threw a cut or other problems that people have been having. I have read and read and read and have found no solutions that have worked. This is what I have and what it is doing. USCutter SC Series Cutter FlexiSign Pro Using USB for all connections (which people seem to think is the problem) Updated drivers for flexi for the SC Series Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit The problem is is that it cuts half way threw a cut and stops. Say 39% every time and locks up. reset cutter try again and does it again. restart the computer and it cuts half way threw. People have stated that setting up the cutter for quality medium cut and 1000kb. Didn't help at all. Now keep in mind that I have used Signcut Pro and SignBlazer with outta hitch. and they still work now. I try using Flexi and it locks up and I have to start over. I want to use Flexi as its expensive and I like the way it works. Seems more streamline and the vectoizing abilities work better for what I do then inkscape the the others I have used. What solutions have others came up with? Now I know there are many posts on this subject and not many solutions that I have found. Others also have talked about static which I have everything grounded anyways. Not a static issue. Beginning to completely think that it is Flexi that has the issues as all other program work. Ideas would be greatly appreciated and if anyone has a solution to possible computer settings that would be great as well. Thinking it may be a computer, Flexi, cutter driver, software problem. Improper setup that needs some tweaking. But not to sure on this and dont have a whole load of time to play with it due to the 100 orders aday I get and have to fill with a single cutter. Thank you hope there is a solution in more depth then what I have read. I know someone somewhere has had this problem as I have read but I know someone somewhere has fixed this. Hopeing someone here knows how.
  16. Help with Flexi

    Hello everyone! I need a help with converting fs files into image. I don't have Flexi, only files. It's a logo that needs to be shown on my website. There are 9 images. I need it ASAP. Please! Thank you in advance.
  17. I have been using Flexi 7.5 for years and have never had this problem. I will begin a cut that is six lines of text. When the cut get's sent, the production manager shows the percentage of completion. It stops processing at 83%. I get 5 complete lines of text properly cut and one line that does not cut completely. As well, if I must restart my computer if I want to send another cut. The production manager will say 'write port error'. I have ensured that my baud rates all match (on the plotter, the driver (device manager), and the production manager. (as stated in http://forum.uscutte...ite-port-error/ pinned post). It was set properly, and has always been set this way. I also lowered my buffer settings to assist in alleviating communication errors. 1 out of 10 cuts with aforementioned 6 lines of text will be erradic. The plotter seems to just go haywire and will cut a straight line until I tell it to stop (reset manually - or - exit production manager). Sometimes the line is vertical sometimes it is horizontal (and the plotter reaches the edge of the plot surface and attempts to continue heading in that direction). Does anyone else have any experience with this issue? Please respond with any information you believe may be relevant to my current issue. I still need to cut those 6 lines of text about 200 more times. *sigh* /dyndes
  18. Hello everyone. I just purchased a GraphTech CE5000-60 from USCutter. Extremely excited as I bought the copam 2500 first and was extremely unsatisfied with its quality and overall design So I traded that in on the GraphTech. Question is, will "Poll size" and "Show me" in Flexisign play well with the Graphtech? I'm used to an older Summa cutter and was told GraphTech is the closest thing to Summa without spending several thousand dollars. Also, how well does it cut reflectives and thicker materials? I had a local cutter dealer tell me they were not good for it but I just can't believe 300 grams of pressure wouldn't be enough to cut reflectives and other thick materials. What say you?
  19. Alright, I purchased the Keyspan when I purchased the TC cutter. I downloaded the drivers with the CD that was included. I am running a mac book pro, version 10.5.8.. When I go into flexi and go to make a driver profile there is no driver for Liyu or USCutter. I have been trying to find something online the past couple hours about this and I havnt had any luck... If I chose a cutter the Serial "USA19H64P1.1" shows up so I know thats plugged in correctly. Just the drivers didnt install right or something.
  20. Just upgraded to flexi starter 10 from signblazer thinking it would be a better program to cut with, HOWEVER, I am going crazy. I can not figure out how to get it to cut my vinyl. I have looked on youtube with no success trying to find some kind of instruction manual. Can anyone tell me where is a good place to learn how to use this software.
