  1. Hello! I have been using a Vinyl Express R Series II 24" vinyl plotter for about a year now. Needless to say, I have certainly outgrown it, and need something bigger and better. I found a listing in my area for a used Mutoh Kona 1400 55" cutter. I've worked with a Mutoh LFP in the past, but not one of their cutters. The price is reasonable, and I could easily pay for it in one job or two. My questions are: Does anyone else use the same cutter? Is it worth purchasing used? Could I use LXi Expert with it? I'm still doing research on my own, but I wanted to check here and see if anyone else would recommend buying this cutter. Thank you in advance!

    Need help on GCC i-craft

    i bought GCC i-craft this month of june 2017 but the problem is when i click the cut button found on the sure cuts a lot 4 it sends the image to the GCC Machine, it only display the word "Cutting" but no response from the machine. I've waited too long but it does not start on cutting. When i cancel the job , it only display "please wait JOB CANCELLING" i also waited for too long but no response from the machine. I already consulted the admin of sure cuts a lot, they help me with my problem, i sent them the svg file i used , they tried it to other machine, and its ok, svg file is working fine. I dont know if the problem is on the machine or the connection between my Windows 10 OS i have on my laptop or on the GCC i-craft. I badly need your help. My GCC-i craft was stock at home, it so useless if i cant cut anything i've downloaded from the internet even tracing doesn't work also. It only cuts the basic shape found on the library of sure cuts a lot 4. I already contact technical support on gccworld, but no response from them. I hope someone on this forum will help me with regards on my cutter issue.Thanks in advance
  3. Hey guys! So, I am wanting to move forward a bit, and looking into getting a cutter/printer in one. I am thinking 24inch is the size I would like, and I will need to look into laminating as well. But, just to mess around, what is a good deal on a cutter/printer combo? I am wanting to spend under 2 grand shipped if possible, thanks! -Russ
  4. cant make it work on my windows 10
  5. I have a graphtec fc8600-160 plotter and i recently got it so i know only the basics and it say awaiting ENTER key. im not sure what that means or what it wants. If any one has had this issue before and knows how to fix it that would be helpful.
  6. I hope this finds any helpful member as I am stuck with a brick of a plotter. So, I went to update the firmware for Graphtec FC7000-130 (USB) to v2.10 (from Graphtec website) to get the perf option. Downloaded all the updates on that page (Windows 7, 64 bit) and thought I followed the instructions well, it started loading, but now it gives me 3 different errors: 1. Straight power up - [bOOT START ERROR] or 2. Power Up, holding Left & Right, goes to Update / Yes then shows [CHECK SUM ERROR] or 3. Power Up, holding Left & Right, goes to Update / Yes then shows [PLEASE SEND PRGM] - I hit PRINT from the Data File Output Utility and [Cannot Access Output Destination] Pops up. What Gives? What should I do next? I attached a screen shot of all the relevant info I could fit. Please feel free to contact me by whatever means are most convenient to you. My contact info is below. Thanks for your help! Alex Wojciecowski Socha Visual Inc. alex@sochavisual.com (415) 508-5927

    Newbie looking for advice

    I am looking to cut vinyl primarily for use in engraving rough granite. I purchased a used (probably 15 years old) Roland Camm1 CM24 a couple of years ago and just cannot figure out how to get my Mac to "talk" to it. So, I'm throwing in the towel and starting from scratch. I'd like to spend $1500 or less but could spend a little more if I would get a better bang for my buck. I will obviously need software too. If it makes sense for me to buy a used PC instead of using my Mac, I would be open to that. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
  9. Hey guys! My names Axyl and I run a small vinyl sticker business in Western Australia. Refine Pro-24 & Signcut Pro Last weekend my cutter started malfunctioning mid-cut. The screen is stuck on "Thank you for cutting!" And the actual cutting module keeps repeatedly bashing up against the side of the machine as soon as I flick the power on. I'm stressing out like crazy because I have a lot of people relying on me for business stickers and car vinyls etc. If anyone has any idea on how to fix this error, or perhaps anyone in WA, or even Australia can fix it. Even Refines contact details would be greatly appreciated. Thanks heaps guys! Axyl
  10. Well, i recently purchased Make The Cut, which the plotter i have does support. its working, it does cut but the problem that i'm having is that whenever i send something to cut, it starts the line but then goes over to another corner or spot and starts doing jagz and zig zags , then it sometimes goes back to the work then stops. it doesn't even finish the cut. i guess it's the plotter,that since i didn't use it in quite some time, maybe the sensors are dirty or something. if anyone has or has had this same problem and knows the solution, please tell me what i can do to resolve it, attached i will leave one example of what i'm talking about. Thanks..
  11. Hi, I noticed that when my plotter is cutting the vinyl, it scratches it while moving from one point to another. I tried troubleshooting by adjusting the needle, the up_speed, pressure, and baud rate. I finally tried pressing the vinyl down with my fingers while cutting and that helped. So now I want to know how I can keep the vinyl as flat as possible on the plotter. An even better solution would be to allow for the needle to go up higher when moving from one point to another. Any suggestions?

    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

    New to Forum and need help

    Hello All, I have been cutting for quite some time now, but have ran into a sort of dilemma. I have a ProCut CR 1200. I was using CorelDraw X3, until it decided to crash on me. Was using it for years, and all of sudden it decided to just kill itself. I purchased CorelDraw x7 and now need to marry it my plotter. I see that the CR 1200 driver is available for download, but cannot find the plug-in for X7 anywhere. Is anybody able to assist in helping find where i can get the plug-in, or if i even need one at all?
  14. Can anyone tell me where this wire is supposed to be attached to. I was cutting today and all of a sudden the up and down stopped on the blade. The cutter continues to go through all of the motions just does not go up or down. I opened the lid and found this wire just laying there. Any help would be appreciated.
  15. 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
  16. I'm a designer with some sign shop experience from college and we've been having a ton of small decal jobs come in for a restaurant that we've just launched. So I've convinced my boss to looking into purchasing a plotter for our office so we don't have to continuously bother printers for these little odd jobs. Are there any recommendations for plotters on the cheaper side that produce decent work? We're not looking to purchase a $1,000+ plotter or anything. Just one that can get some simple tasks done. Do you think that it's worth it to purchase a cheaper plotter? Thanks in advance -CJ

    Course vs. Fine etched vinyl

    What is the better looking etched vinyl in your eyes? course or fine silver etched ? Thanks
  18. I bought a gcc jaguar IV froma company that used it as their floor model. It was supposed to come with greatcuts etc. I understand that greatcuts is not mac compatible BUT that disk also has the directcut program on it. Is there anyway to get the DIrectCut program by itself (free or not)? I have Signcutpro (another topic) seems to really have some issues with contour cutting. any help would be appreciated. Mike
  19. I decided to buy a GraphTec ce5000-60 but just noticed today that there is a new cutter out there in the wild? The GraphTec ce6000! I checked the GraphTec site and couldn't find it. I did notice a small design change where the buttons and such are top, right vs to the side (right). Anyone have any specs or input on this. I'll hold off for a month or two before I'm buying. Hope it has better specs than 5000 because the price is about/is the same. I found the specs, plus I emailed GraphTec and they got to me with an email asking me where I lived so they can have the proper person contact me.

  21. Hello Everyone, I have never joined a forum before so I hope this works. I am a newby sandblaster and have jumped in with both feet. I work with glass and stone, both with blastmask and photoresist. Currently I have a mentor who has all the equipment but I am now starting to get my own together. I purchase a magnum force cutter package from SCM, but I still haven't been able to use it after more than a month. The people at APD have been great, sending replacement pieces and working with me to try to get it working but.... The company I purchased it from has been sketchy in their help. It was advertised as being compatible with corelDraw but now I find that was corel 11 & 12 (old, old, old!!) and since I am using Corel X5 it won't work. I need a plottercutter (affordable) that has a minimum of 500 gr pressure as I only cut mask, not vinyl. Also I am looking for a photoresist UV lite...ie) letralite if anyone knows an inexpensive retailer of 1. I am really looking forward to reading about your hints, tips and experiences thanks
  22. I am wondering what folks use as a backing material for cutting films that don't come from the manufacturer with backing materials? I am running a Graphtec FC8000-130 and I would like to cut a few specialty materials that are .0006" polycarbonate. These however don't have a backing material. What do I do if I want to run them through the plotter/cutter? Is there a material/adhesive film/transfer-tape-type-film that can be applied to substitute a "backing material"? TPD.
  23. Ok so I',ready to buy a new cutter! My LP 24 has performed beautifully and I am passing it on the my very gifted daughter, But I'm Ready for the next level. So which way should I go? The GX24 seems like the right machine but it's Gram force is only 200gr while the Gcc is nearly 400gr. which one is best? Best software, ease of use, versitality, durability?? all answers welcome!
