Version 3 is online with a picture of the control panel of the plotter.

I have choosen for SBE in this manual as it is free, easy to use and understand and many forum members have been nursed with it.

I see many people just want to start a business and just buy a plotter without even having any knowledge of what is going on. They have a PC and some pictures which they like to cut.

Their first questions then reaches this forum or the plotter goes into a closet to collect dust.

I never bought a tractor so do not now if there comes a drive manual with it :thumbsup:

After this manual the real world of cutting is open, as then there is so much more to learn.

Let me know what you guys think of the manual.

i think the manual is a great idea! I will definately need one!!!

I am one of those people who bought a cutter without knowing what i was doing.

However i did a lot of reading from the other people in my industry who make it sound

a lot easier than what it truly is. So i jumped faster than maybe i should have, but with

good intent and goals! As everything, it's a learning curve. i will get it, i just need a little bit

of help! Trust me, i didnt get a manual with my son... but i'm not doing too bad. Not a pro yet,

but much more to learn!

thanks to everyone for your help!

No Problem to be a new bee, but a seller should put a manual with it.

For children there are no sellers :thumbsup:.

My wife and I have no children but I can write you a manual too :thumbsup:.

Use the manual for what you need to know, maybe just a little for some a little more and for some the way to...........

Paco, I have a question I didn't see an answer for in the manual, which was a great job by the way!  Thanks!

When I ordered my MH-721, I got the SBE software on a disc.  When I was loading the software, it asks me to start setting up the plotter connections.  Can this be bypassed when installing the software?

Also, the software stated that it can only be set up on one machine, then it is useless and cannot be loaded onto another computer at any time.

Thanks

Z, No problem.

For the SBE cd rom.

Just leave it where it is and use the UScutter Free download Trail and get started as stated in the manual.

I have no idea about the difference between them.

blade and bottom of what?,  you put the blade holder in it's hole on the carriage arm.  and tighten it down, that is it..  you do not adjust the bladeholder.

The blade holder has a ring around the middle.

Slide the blade holder into thecarriage arm until it hits the ring and thighten the screw to hold it.

The knife sticking put the blade holder is correct for half credit card thickness.
