  1. Hey guys, I'm having the hardest time setting up my vinyl cutter. It's a MH 871-mk2 and in useing the cutting promgram it came with, Vinyl Master. Im also useing the vinyl it came with which is GreenStar, not sure if that vinyl is any good or how it compares to 3M. I bought the cutter brand new off of Amazon. I keep adjusting the blade height (I can barley see it) and testing the cuts on scrap vinyl to make sure im only cutting the vinyl film and not the backing paper. When i feel like i got the right height, i set the blade in the machine and do a few test cuts but it continually only cuts a few lines fine and the other lines become almost perforated. Im only trying to cut squares and doing "Test" cuts to get the machine dialed in. Ive also been adjusting the offset and cant seem to get any better. Ive been ranging from very low pressures and speed to gradually increasing to find the best setting, still nothing though. What is my problem?? I know this cutter is the bottom of the barrel when it comes to vinyl cutters, but i only bought it as a hobby use/begginer cutter. I plan on upgrading later on once i get more of a handle of using it.
  2. Hi! I am am new here because I have a problem that I just can't seem to fix. I have read all over this forum and different forums on how to fix this problem and I just can't seem to get it to work. So here is my issue: I am working with Adobe Illustrator CC 2015 and it informed me that I needed to upgrade to Cutting Master 3. NBD, I downloaded the plugin and moved it to the "Plug In" section of my AI folder. I opened AI, selected my art and opened up the newly downloaded CM3. No problem. However I can not get it to sync at all. It just sits there syncing and never actually syncs. So according to everything I read, I reset the software in my computer to the factory reset. I then reset the actual cutter (turned on the machine while holding the UP arrow). I changed the setting from HL to GL in the Command heading on the actual machine. I have restarted both my computer and the plotter every single time. But still it is not syncing. I have also reattached cords and such. I know the computer is talking to the cutter since when I open the CM3 software my cutter makes a noise every single time. So there is some communication happening. But just not any cutting. AHHHHH!!!!! I need some help! Any ideas on what to do next? I am desperate! My job is due first thing tomorrow and I have nothing!!!!!
  3. I cannot, for the life of me get anything with any detail to weed properly. I even have some issues with large stuff... I've done EVERYTHING I can think of as far as the machine are concerned. The cuts look perfect, yet I still cannot get smaller pieces to weed properly. I've read a little bit that it may just be the vinyl I'm using (Green Star Gloss Black and White). I just placed an order for Oracal 651 -- is this going to help? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi i have a MH-721 cutter. I have a file that i am trying to cut and it gets about a quarter through it then puts a line through my letters and then goes all the way to the left side of machine and grinds. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance Missy
  5. Hi! I recently bought a USCutter MH871-MK2. More info: Sure Cuts A Lot 3 Pro------Windows 7 64 bit ----------------- RAM 16gb ----------------- ..... yeah My problem is that the file I want to get cut isn't getting cut. Description: I open sure cuts a lot 3 pro program and choose two circles for the USCutter to cut. I press print and select the right printer. Then open up devices and printer to see if the file I want printed is listed under the UScutter but it isn't. When I press "test" button in offline mode, cutter cuts out a star with no problem. All the help is much appreciated!
