Help needed/appreciated roll width problems fc8600-75 (Solved)

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow cutters,

Im having a strange problem with my grapftec cutter and software.  fc8600-75

My cutter has a 24" bed and rolls. Recently I started having a strange problem where the graphtec soft ware will not let me make a pattern that is wider than 20".

If I make a pattern that is wider than 20" it will automatically crop my shapes an move them to different line. When I put in a new roll and adjust the rollers the cutter says I can cut 22.9" but the software will not let me go over 20"(under is ok)

Do you guys think its a software problem or is something getting lost in translation between the cutter and software?

 

PS if your in the Sacramento area Beers are on me for any helpful replies c:

 

Take care

G.

According to what you posted that cutter is 30" ...Graphtecs will not cut beyond the pinch rollers. There are magnets there.  If you want to cut past the rollers go into background settings and turn the pinch rollers and media sensor off.   I turned mine off on day 1.  I can cut edge to edge of the vinyl. 

You don't state which software you are using, but the Graphtec driver should have your software at 29.6 inches width,  you are saying that model is a 30" cutter. FC8600-75  is 30" cutter

Your using the the wrong cutter model for your set up. In Graphtec pro Studio  That cutter is not a 20" CElite 50  Those cutters ARE only 20"   Why aren't you using FC8600-75 like you should be? 

Thank you but I will have a Coca Cola.  :D

I don't think your too clear.....ClearG  :lol:
