    A New Venture

    I'd suggest slowing it down if you're having issues with details. I have a MH and typically only run around 150-200 mm/s. My pressure is usually around 150 as well.

    Haven't not heard of that, but my first step would be to verify you have the latest drivers for the video card. If you do, then I'd try reinstalling Photoshop.

    Font & Softwares ...

    Interesting, seems like something is wrong someplace. What does the font look like in other programs?

    What software are you using, and have you registered it? Several cutting software tools will cut an X through a design if the software is not registered.

    Font & Softwares ...

    I'm a little confused, you say the kerning and text width seem to be spot on and you say the the text are exactly the same height, so what is different?
  6. Clean Cut Blades are hard to beat and last a long time. And a lot of people go with the 60 degree blade and just use it for everything. Unless you're doing a lot of relatively low detail designs, the hassle of switching back and forth between 45 and 60 is just not worth it.
  7. Step size, traditionally refers to the amount of movement for a single step of a stepper motor. Plotters with solenoid motors really shouldn't use the term step size for anything, it can cause confusion. In this case, the "steps" they are referring to is how the software breaks down curves. Curves are really just a bunch of really short straight lines, the shorter the line the smoother the curve.

    What is different between Wife's computer and yours?
  9. Yeah, that's a Windows thing. Sometimes, Windows will remember the size and location of a window when you close it. You might also try turning off the open maximized option, typically done by editing the shortcut, but Windows 10 and 11 have messed that stuff up so badly it's hard to say how to get Windows to behave the way you want.

    Is that the problem you're trying to fix? You should have just said that from the start, that is a software issue. You just need to adjust the calibration in the software and you'll be good to go. I am not familiar with EasyCut, but Some where there should be a calibration option, or a Steps per Inch setting.

    OTF to TTF Bicubik

    Use a different program such as inkscape to create the design. Convert the text to paths, save the file as an EPS, import to SB and cut.

    No idea on password, but what setting are you trying to change? Looking at the manual it looks like there are only 3 things, speed, force, and baud rate. Speed and force are just adjusted with the arrow keys while the plotter is offline. Baud rate is adjusted with the settings button.

    is there a way to

    Vinyl Master can do that, the plugin for Inkscape did as well I believe. Don't know about SCALP though, sorry.

    Help Identifying Vinyl Cutter

    And if you use the serial connection you don't need drivers for the cutter.
