Hi there - I got a Titan 2 for Christmas and was really bummed at the lack of instructions / guidance that came with the machine. I contacted support and was supposed to get a sheet of paper that directed me to links to see the manual, and guides, but my machine didn't come with that. I was able to find information online (but it was really scattered about and is still lacking the kind of instructions I am looking for). I feel like I'm shooting in the dark. I had to search around to figure out how to move the rollers. I saw someone post something in this forum about reading the manual - but the manual doesn't say anything about HOW to move the rollers or that the Titan 2 rollers are evidently really difficult to move (as I found in another post). I also had a tremendous amount of frustration with setting up the stand as the video I found was moving so fast my husband and I had to keep pausing and rewinding the video over and over and over to figure out how to get it together (this was from the us cutter Vimeo page). This is my very first vinyl cutter. I had never seen one in person or see how it was used other than a few videos on YouTube. I have a CO2 laser that came with videos, an incredible manual and tons of online support. What I was hoping I could get with this machine was a cheat sheet of sorts that gives you some basic setting starting points for different vinyl materials. I use my cheat sheet with my CO2 laser every time I start cutting / engraving new materials. It gives me a baseline to start from that I can tweak / test from there. Do you guys have anything like that for Vinyl cutting with this machine? I've included a picture of my laser's cheat sheet so you can see what I'm talking about. Thanks in advance for your help. Sorry if I come off as a little whiny. I really want to learn how this machine works, but feel like I got this awesome device and it's totally up to me to figure it out (via a TON of searching around online). Lolly
henryjames7 posted a topic in Pre-sale questionsHi All- new here. I've been using (learning) on a Cricut Explore. It's been fine so far, but now I need to get greater precision on my cuts. Most of my shapes are 1-4 inches (imported as JPEGs from Adobe Illustrator) and have intricate curves and circles. I find the Cricut to be choppy and not as smooth on the shapes and curves as I'd like. The cuts are very consistent from one cut to the next - each time I cut, they are choppy in the same way- but I need smooth and precise cuts. Based upon reading, I think I may need a different machine. I'd appreciate any recommendations on the most precise cutters I should be considering (preferably 12" width, but not necessary.) Many thanks in advance!
