The Command for any other software than Graphtec software requires HP-GL language.   GP-GL is Graphtec software. 

Flexi is HP-GL

we almost never see components fail - over the last 10 years maybe seen 3 mainboards as opposed to hundreds for the mh series.  other than that the only thing they need is new blades, occasional cutting strip and keep them out of the rain

You didn't mention which other UScutter vinyl cutter that you had.  But the blade offset on a Graphtec vinyl cutter is ZERO.  A Graphtec has a servo motor, and may be night and day better if you had a stepper vinyl cutter before. If that cutter was taken care of,  you got a great deal on it.

I don't see wear it showing excessive wear where vinyl has ridden on front or in knife tray where you cut media off..

Too bad no stand, wonder what happened to it?  It is standard equipment with the 24" on up. Maybe they still have it somewhere.

I wouldn't be able to function comfortably without the stand. I have very limited space, vertical is the only way to go for me.
