  2. Guys, I’m distraught...ok, maybe just a bit bummed because I found a clear transfer tape that worked great for the release liner on 5100 and was clear which is what my customers want in my niche. But...R-Tape changed it up to some textured opaque thing in their 75.1. What Elise is out there that is high tack and clear and will work to stick to the release liner for transportation purposes?
  3. I don't use metric. Red box lower picture, Why do you have it on User defined? That is not default. Check your setup in Cutting Master. I have owned my FC7000 since 2008 and I have never upgraded the firmware on it. You can run that cutter on Free Signblazer. on HP-GL also if you are on Windows. I have a FC7000-75, but I run it on Flexistarter 8.6 . It is also bare bones software. http://www.uscuttersupport.com/downloads/Software/SignBlazer/
  4. Hi there! I have very uncommon problem with my setup - not sure if it's plotter or software oriented. THE SETUP: Plotter is Graphtec FC7000-100 with latest firmware 2.10 GL - updated just recently, but problem occurred with previous version too. Set as GP-GL. Connected via USB. Windows 7, Cutting Master 2 and - if it even matters - Corel Draw X7. THE PROBLEM: After loading and measuring vinyl sheet plotter shows it's correct dimensions (mm). But Cutting Master program, reads these dimensions 10x bigger! Any clues? Please look at images: Cut Area on plotter is 532x248 MM But Cutting Master shows 532x248 CM Any clues? Please help!

    Cutter peeling up vinyl while cutting

    Sorry to post on such on old thread-- but @lizzylou's suggestion was spot on for me. I'm working with an MH cutter, had major peeling when cutting small artifacts (fonts in this case) on Oracal 651. Backing off on the "force" did it for me. I had started at the default 500 grams, ended up at 20 grams, running at about 100 for the speed. Also, bonus with the lessened force is that the machine runs much quieter, and still cuts just as well. Thanks @lizzylou

    thankfully, no canoe club has done that here ... and hopefully won't.

  12. I can't find a service manual for the CE6000. but maybe the service manual for the CE5000 might get you there. http://www.graphteccorp.com/support/manuals/CE5000/CE5000-UM-251 (09-9370).pdf

    ORACAL 651 15" Vinyl now comes unpunched.

    Main tape is 15" That is all I have used for many years. Some of the Rtape is 15" also. I have an Ebay seller that I have bought from for years. I use Main medium tack paper tape. https://www.uscutter.com/Main-Tape-GXP750-PerfecTear-Plus-Medium-Tack-Transfer-Tape

    You could pin stripe or add gold leaf to outriggers . . . .hmmmmm
  15. Hi, this post had been for many years but I think I might shared my two cents on the ARMS. I facing the same problem on and off, sometime it would read but sometime it won't. Oh, btw I am using CE6000-60 series. The only thing that I would do when the cutter wouldn't read my registration marks, I will find a piece of clothes and try to clean the censor. Then it will work, but 1 question is, how do we take the censor out to clean it thoroughly. Thanks, just my 2 cents

    ORACAL 651 15" Vinyl now comes unpunched.

    Great! Now they just need to increase the width of their app tape to match .... and i would need my local shop here to carry the vinyl and wider app tape
  17. typically people just post the file to the forum thread, so that many volunteers can take a stab at problem solving it. if you feel more comfortable just sending it to me, that works too - just click on my profile name, then click Message. you can attach files and shot me a message at the same time. no one else will see the communication or attachment.

    I am looking for this font on the wood. Thank you, Christi
  22. That is great news. Now you can get the whole 15" wide cuttable area. And it is cheaper than the Punched version. Maybe others noticed it, but I just saw it in an email from USCutter. https://www.uscutter.com/ORACAL-651-Vinyl-15x10-Yard-Non-Punched https://www.uscutter.com/ORACAL-651-Vinyl-15x50-Yard-Non-Punched

    Here's an old Indy Car from the 70's that my uncle and cousin painted and stripped, and another from 1980. That's my Uncle on the far right & his son in the cowboy hat. I used to love watching them paint and the smell of turps and paint, oh..and a few beers and shots were consumed while doing so. My cousin is still doing it at the ripe young age of 76. And all was done freehand, no masking tapes involved

    Man, that's real dang close. A few curved edges here or there. Nothing I can't straighten though. Much appreciated!
