  1. Good evening all, I made a post a little over a month ago about having issues with my 68" Titan 3 getting lost during contour cutting. I am still having some issues with this, and looking for some guidance. For reference, I have calibrated the ARMS, I have calibrated the Laser for Barcode scanning, I have calibrated cutter scale. I can not seem to get anywhere here. In the example below I have printed (35) 6" x 3" decals (7 columns, 5 rows), on 54" wide material with lamination. No matter whether I use the ARMS marks, or barcode scanner the results are the same. What happens, is the laser will scan either the reg marks/barcode and get to work. All of the decals on the outside edges (So the first row, last row, first column, last column) will come out perfectly. However all other decals will come out with the contour hugging the bottom of the decal. (See photos below). I am at a loss of what to do. I've tried laminated vs un laminated. I've done all the calibrations a dozen times, I've tried different blades, I have reset the blade heights, I have even gotten all the skew to nearly zero, I have even left a print rolled up to get any curling out over night,ut I still have the same results. Still always the same issue. All the decals close to the reg marks are good, all others are not. This issue is also very repeatable. I can take a group like below, cut them. The middle decals will all be off. So I will rerun the cut program, and the cutter will trace right back over all the previous cuts INCLUDING all of the decals that it was misaligned on.

    Vinyl Alignment Tape

    I recently saw a vinyl cutting video where there were alignment marks across the front of the cutter. "Self," I thought, "than would be handy." So off to Amazon to see what I could find. There I found an adhesive backed 24" tape measure that was right-to-left reading. It's a great improvement over the Mark 1 eyeball I was using to align my vinyl.
  3. Titan 2 user for two years, with SCAL Pro4. Lately for large cuts that require 24" vinyl, i am getting horrible cuts. Cuts are misaligned/shifted over. Cut preview looks perfect. I do always use a weeding box around designs. My carriage is ending to the right of the set point, off the vinyl. I have a new cutting strip, new blade, redid the grounding wire, shut down/rebooted both the cutter and PC, freed up memory off my PC, I am at a LOSS! I will take any ideas out there :) :) HELP! pics are just one example. On another design, it's off on the left area of the image. I'm getting to my busy season and need to figure this out.
  4. A problem came up that I'm not sure how to fix. Let's say if I cut the letter "O," the blade will complete the circle, but it will stop about a millimeter to the left or right of where it began cutting. Also, the center circle of the "O" would not be in the center as it should: it ends up a little displaced in any direction towards the edge of the "O," and sometimes it even goes beyond the boundary of the letter. I use the letter "O" as an example. This happens with every letter, and it gets a lot worse as the size of the decal decreases. Lines will show up too thick or too thin. I am using a Macbook Pro, SignCut Pro, Inkscape (to convert files) and Illustrator (to create files). I tried to calibrate my plotter using SignCut and all measurements were perfect. Please help! This work is unacceptable to give to clients.

    Hello from a newbie

    Hi, I'm new to vinyl cutting and have a question. I purchased a refurbished MH365 and have had some success using it by reading the manual. Does anyone know how to align pre-printed vinyl so that it cuts out the images correctly? Specifically, I am trying to cut circles around a small image to use for stickers. I can't seem to determine where to position the blade in alignment with the images. I've set the origin but the blade shifts to a border line. I'm using Signblazer software from the USCutter website. Any help appreciated. Thanks
