    MH MK2 will only print squiggly lines

    What do you get if you hit the test button on the cutter?
  3. I've had the same sort of issue and when I export as eps from Inkscape VM imports it just fine.
  4. Today
  5. Hopefully, you are prefeeding enough vinyl tru the cutter to do the entire order. Vinyl should be slack laying behind the cutter. Never be pulling from the vinyl roll while cutting. Also make sure the pinch rollers are an equal distance from the vinyl edge. I use a tape measure to measure the distance. Vinyl will feed straight that way. I use about 1 inch from the vinyl edge.

    Small Dots Printing on paper

    Which printer model?

    MH MK2 will only print squiggly lines

    What this looks like is a bad motherboard. Did you purchase this machine used from someone?
  8. Does any one know what is causing these dots on my sublimation printer? I have only had it a month and was too busy trying to figure out times etc didn't notice them until now. I thought I was burning the polyester, but now I see it is on the paper
  9. I can’t figure out why my contour cutting won’t work correctly. I have a Titan 3 and the Vinyl Master XPT software I have calibrated it numerous times and it is perfect on the test sheet. It will usually cut one or two correctly but as it moves further out to the left it starts to cut away from the cut line eventually cutting into my print. I spent 800 upgrading to the XPT software and Future Corp wont return an email. I have tried lining up the media several different ways to eliminate skew issues but nothing seems to correct the issue. I have the Cutter on a 12 foot USB cable and that is my last hope that a shorter cable may help although it seems to communicate well. I had U.S Cutters technician check setting through computer remote and he said everything looks good as far as the ARMs settings and offsets. It is so weird because every now and then it will cut a job right. I have wasted hundreds of dollars on media. I would love to resolve this issue. Anyone have any ideas?

    how do I calibrate it? its like it cant understand what im sending it. I just did another test doing a stock image on scal 4 (on arrow) and it cut (drew with the pen) straight lines this time but it was only the point of the arrow the rest were random lines
  11. Thank you for updating your post, and letting us know how you resolved your issue. There will be a good chance that someone will need this information in the future. On a slight tangent, did you try to save your file as an .eps out of inkscape? I'm curious to know if VM would have done the same thing. I'm guessing it might have, since you seem to have isolated it to bend a node issue. (just can't help being curious though )

  13. Hi Guest, welcome. You can just TYPE in the numerals and then tilt\slant 'em. I think you should also slant the numbers in opposite ways for the two car doors, so both sides tilt towards the rear.
  14. VM 4.0 has an issue with SVG files, they don't always import correctly. It's best to export files from your design software as eps then import that to VM. The VM people are aware of the SVG issue and have been looking into it.
  15. I would start a new thread but first you have to IMPORT a svg - and if the numbers are not a font but a traced file you cannot use the text feature to add the slant - first find the actual font and install it on your computer If you create an account on the forum you will also get notifications when someone responds
  16. I’m having several issues with vinylmaster cut. I’m new at the vinyl thing and all I want to do is make numbers for my sons race car. I can’t get SVG to load and I also can not for the life of me get my numbers to slant. Please help!

    Problem

    a picture of the not-so-sharp edges would be helpful. if the vinyl is on a roll - when you feed the vinyl, do you make sure that there is enough slack so the machine isn't pulling it off the tension of the roll? are your pinch rollers placed equally spaced about an 1" from the edge of the vinyl? If you're trying to cut something detailed and intricate, have you tried slowing down the speed?

    when u say print, does that mean your hitting 'print + cu't in scalps instead of the that just says 'cut'? only use the cut. Ive never used an mh , so not familiar, I started with an sc . if I rem correctly it was pretty much plug and play. I just selected my cutter in the cut program I was using. VM, scalps, I dn loaded signblazer, but I don't rem cutting anything. 1 used cutter I bought came with the serial port adapter, again something ive never had to use. but I don't think mine is the brand everyone recommends on here. which from my understanding is the only 1 that works correctly. I just checked my version of scalps 4, under us cutter brand MH is listed , if its like my setup , all u have to do is select that and cut

    School font HELP please!

    Trying to create other materials for our school however the person who created the logo is not being very helpful. Here is what the logo looks like. Thank you for your help! What I "found" was LHF Block but when I look for that font it is nowhere close to what the logo looks like.

    looks like the logo was designed by GP designs in a contest https://logotournament.com/contests/site-development-corporation/by/gpdesign and according to that site the agreement looks they would be provided high resolution files - there would need to be changes for cut files as the logo is made for print or web use with the "reflection" part of the upper logo

    Trace by hand, that is a pretty easy logo to do by hand. Bring the logo into your program and using the bezier tool to trace over the image.
