  2. 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!

    Now is cutting message

    Problem Solved. I have no idea how it happened but somehow the model of my cutter got changed in my software.Set it to the right one and all is good
  9. Mz Skeeter is asking because while what you are doing may be working for you, it is not the intended use of the cutter and will ruin the cutting strip making future cuts not as clean. Have you tried a different program for printing? From this statement, it sounds to me like it is a software problem and you may not be able to use Graphtec Studio to print with your printer. What printer are you using?

    I watch every week, love the striping and I have used my plotter to do a mask to sandblast the back of mirrors and then paint part and gold leaf part. Last week nub said he liked the one I did for my daughters wedding

    I would never even attempt this kind of stuff, but I love watching it! My great uncle was a sign painter in Iowa....barns, berma-shave, store windows, fire trucks, you name it. A canvas bag of paints and a leather roll of brushes. As a kid I was mesmerized by the stuff he could do by hand. Heck, I still am!

    Decal Storage

    I like your vinyl storage solution Mz Skeeter. I need to give that a try with some of these rolls I don't need to get at very often, the rest is hanging on the wall. What I'm really looking for is ways of storing completed decals. If I'm cutting a file that doesn't use up the full 24" I'll sometimes cut misc. decals out of the excess at the same time. Just stuff I give away as samples. But they start to pile up after a while and need a decent way to store them. Going to try Dakota's accordion file one of these days.
  13. What is your email? I can send you the gstudio file or export it as a pdf and send it to you as well.
  14. I do two passes and I’m cutting through laminated Calendared vinyl. Vinyl is 11mil and laminate it 3 mil. 2 contour cuts and they pop out nice and clean. Sometimes you have to play with pressure to fine tune it.
  15. I might be one of the very few who has both a Graphtec and Graphtec Studio. Hence, the file request. But if you'd rather just tell me what you issue is, without me being able to recreate it on my side, then I cannot help you. Send the file or not, but I'm just going to say, that most times, sending the file helps us volunteers to troubleshoot a lot faster and more thoroughly.
  16. Also, are you using a carrier sheet to contour cut on? If not, how are you perf cutting without ruining your cutting strip? I know it can be done on the FC units, because I have them. It has the 2nd hole in the carriage head and groove below. The American CE6000, does not have that. Is your cutter from Graphtec America?
  17. EPS was created by Adobe and is proprietary but publicly documented format. Meaning any one can make use of it and virtually every vector program does.
  18. .ai is the illustrator file - .eps is used by most vector programs - you can print the raster file but as you know you need a vector contour line around it to cut. - I do not know much about using an aqueous printer and contour cutting but should be the same as using a solvent or latex without the final product being durable - I am sure you have a special use and not just making decals for outdoor use like most of us on here that have/had printers do. again I always used the RIP for my solvent printers (originally used flexi pro before transitioning to the much easier to use versaworks (that will not work with your canon) - - - Personally I drove 4 hrs away and took the time to learn from someone with a solvent printer before purchasing mine and then attended several trade shows
  19. .eps is a universal file. Where are you creating the file? Dakota knows plenty about printing.
  20. Isn’t EPS an adobe illustrator file? Or is it a universal vector file? I don’t have Ai. And I don’t thunk a vector file is required for print and cut. I’m printing the same image fifty times or so on a 24” wide media roll. It is normally around 30” in length. The bottom row, and far right column seem to be the only areas where I have bad image print.
  21. Graphtec Studio for a Mac. can open .eps files. (Not talking about Pro version) From this page https://www.graphtecamerica.com/cp-softwares GS software. Just go to File>Open> At the bottom of the box (dropdown box) change it encapsulated post script. .eps.... bring in your file from wherever it is located.

    Friz Quantrata Bold I think.
  23. On windows version yes, I’m on a Mac so I cannot.
  24. Pro version is for windows operating systems. I’m on Mac.
  25. I don't know anything about Graphtec Studio but according to their web page it can import EPS. No mention of what version it is that does that, but I would think even the lowest version should be able to open/import an eps file.

    Can Not Find Job Folder

    Have you tried manually creating the folder it is looking for? Might get lucky and that's all you need to do.
