Blade holder SLAMS down on initial cut

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I have a new CE6000-40 and I'm new to cutting.

 

I'm not sure if this is normal or not, but the bladeholder seems to slam down pretty hard on the vinyl when it starts a new cut. 

 

I've attached a video showing the behavior. Is this how it's supposed to work or is that a little aggressive?

 

I've pasted all of my software settings below. These settings are controlled in Cutting Master 3 and synced back to the cutter over USB.

 

On the cutter itself, I have the setting for "Initial Down Force" set to 1 (the lowest setting). I don't see an equivalent setting on the computer software side.

Is it actually cutting when you send a job? When I got mine I didn't have the blade holder snapped all the way in so it wasn't cutting but did make a loud slamming noise until I got it properly seated.

Yeah, it's cutting just fine I was just worried that it was going down a little too hard and thought maybe I didn't have something set correctly. After you got the blade holder seated correctly, does it still slam?

What ever happened on the circle problem?.. You never updated on it.
