  2. The lower end cutters tend to drift because they just don't track as well. How are you cutting it twice? - are you sending it to the cutter twice, or do you have the design layered in your software? When I have to make multiple passes, I always layer and send it to the cutter once. I got much better results from my LP that way.

    Lynx PII60

    Should work if you can get the hook up figured out. Not sure if you will need a specific format for the file though. Possibly would need to be a dxf. That's just a guess. They will look old school. I drew a welcome home banner on a really big piece of paper in a cool font and then my kids colored within the lines and it turned out awesome. I just did a regular cut file though. Have you tried opening the CAD file in your software so you can see if that part at least works? I'm sure there is a way to get the two talking to each other.

    In need of printed decals

    Check with "Jburns" on the forum. I had him make me some white on clear decals with his thermal printer and they turned out great.
  6. Hello, I have been cutting vinyl and HTV with no problem but then here comes the cardstock, making look like I don't know what I'm doing. Ha. I am trying to cut out invitations and cupcake toppers with my MH-871 and I am unsure of the settings I need to use. I have a cutting mat for it and I installed the 60 degree blade, but I am having trouble getting it to cut all the way through without two passes and for some reason it is shifting just a tiny bit and making it to where there are two cuts instead of just going through the same path twice. Help please!

    Lynx PII60

    Graphtecs do. On my computers XP and 7. I didn't put them there. They all installed there. Not sure if the Lynx Pii-60 is like the Lynx S-60 I did find a user manual for the Lynx S-60 on a competitor website. But no user manual for the Pii60

    Cutters do not appear as printers. They work through the Com port and are driven by the cutting software LXI

    Lynx PII60

    I have this old Lynx cutter that I pulled out of storage and wanted to use it as a plotter. It came with a pen tip to put in place of the blade and I was thinking I could plot to it from AutoCAD. It only has serial and parallel connections so I got a parallel to usb converter cable. The machine uses a dongle that goes along with LXI software. When I installed the machine, windows drivers for it installed successfully. I thought it would just appear in my "printers" list but I can't seem to get it to work. Is this even possible or am I on a fool's errand? Thanks.

    Sorry, but no one is going to help you with pirated/counterfeit software. Maybe try free inkscape.org to help you with your designs. Then save as an .eps file and import into Signblazer.

    i dont know which one of em is giving the problem -- so i made this thread so that i could get some help. You got EXACTLY the help you required. You were told to download and install SignBlazer, and see if the cutter works OK with it. That is the simple way to discover if the machine is messed-up internally, or if there is some sort of software issue. I offered the most reliable way to check which it is. You're welcome.

    Legal Flexisignpro 8.1 has a USB dongle. And every version after that. That USB dongle has the user ID and password in it. The legal version will not even allow the software to open without the USB dongle in the computer com port. Flexisignpro 8.1 is the most pirated software out there. . Show a picture of the USB dongle in your computer lit up like it should be. .This is a picture of Flexi 10, but you can see at the bottom of the picture, the USB dongle. All legal Flexisignpro software has A USB dongle. Also the other picture is of a legal version of Flexisignpro, with the USB dongle NOT in the com port. You will get this error until you put the USB dongle into the com port of the computer your using. This is how you know that you have legal Flexi products.

    Jonny, what was the result when you installed and sent some text to cut with SignBlazer? Please answer that first, before going off into so many directions.

    A USB dongle is like a flash drive or thumb drive in your com port on your computer. Similar to this photo. The user Id and password is in it to make the Flexisign8.1 work. Do you have this in your computer when Flexisignpro 8.1 is working? ONLY legal Flexisignpro 8.1 software has the USB dongle. Flexisignpro 8.1 is forWindows XP and older Windows.

    Oh I am sorry I forgot the important things. I use serial cable but not USB cable cause the redsail tech said we should not use both.so we daily unplug the machine and keep it inside and then next day we plug the cable in again.so the guy I contacted said that because of unpluing the problem came. I am sorry I don't know what USB dongle means

    My largest work so far

    Thought I'd show off my biggest job to date. It went on both sides of a 21' racing sailboat. It was almost 20' long and almost 24" wide. Used black and red 751 and cut with my SC2. Turned out great and the customer was very happy! Before: After: I was (am) concerned with how long those very thin lines will stay as he told me he hits driftwood, dead fish, docks, buoys and other boats regularly, but he also said that if most of it is still there by the end of the season, he'll be happy. The last decal he had on there which was about half as long, started getting knocked off right away also.
  29. Just to close this off, and thanks for the responses. I got an old desktop computer I have which runs Windows XP 64 Professional, I put an old VIA serial port PCI in it, and used a serial cable from it to the Graphtec and it worked first time. With all the above settings. So the problem was the USB cable, even though it said it was installed properly.
