Is this a new cutter to you?  Doesn't look to be set up correctly. How did you set your blade?  And what is the blade offset at? It has nothing to do with baud rate.   Your baud rate should be 9600.

check offset and maybe slow the cutter down.

if you can, try to vectorize the text and see what's happening with the nodes.

just went to check blade offset and that is exactly what it looks like is incorrect, performing the calibration now.

carriage wheels track?? my understanding is the wheels can go anywhere except where the "brackets' are located? is this not correct?

not a new cutter ut this is the first time I have used it for text.

the text is vector.

ill let you know how the calibrations goes.

blade offset is currently set to 0 but none of the calibration choices looks any different, all sloppy like the photos shown.
