Flexi Product manager making weird corners
willowrungraphics posted a topic in GraphTec Cutting Plotter DiscussionLong story short adobe pulled my license to cs6 after stating I owned a pirated serial number. I subscribed to the newest version of AI but my FC7000-75 plotter is too old to be compatible with cutting master plugin for illustrator. So i pulled out my old version of flexi 8 and figured i could use the product manager to cut jobs to my ancient plotter. The first test print went good, adjusted some speed settings, and when I went to cut again it started putting weird hooks on the sharp corners of all right angle edges. I reset the cutter back to factory settings and its still doing it. Any help would be appreciated. Trying to get the shop back up and running after moving to a new location. Everything was working perfect at my old location with cs6 and cutting master 2. I know the plotter is like 13-14 years old but it still runs like a dream. If i could just get this kink ironed out.... If i test from the plotter is cuts smooth, just printed the weird hooks on the edges when sending from flexi 8 with the product manager. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
Print then cut fc7000
ign 5 posted a topic in GraphTec Cutting Plotter DiscussionHi all, looked through the forum, saw some older posts about this, but would like to hit this topic again, as hopefully new solutions. I am looking into trying to Print with my inkjet printer, and then laminate it, and then cut it in my Graphtec FC7000-100. SO questions are.... 1. What program could I use, that hopefully you have experience with using (can be paid program obviously, does not have to be freeware) 2. what materials would you recommend? 3. The overall process you do, and how well does it work? thanks in advance! -Russ
Graphtec FC7000-130 Firmware Update Problems
alexwoj posted a topic in GraphTec Cutting Plotter Support RequestsI hope this finds any helpful member as I am stuck with a brick of a plotter. So, I went to update the firmware for Graphtec FC7000-130 (USB) to v2.10 (from Graphtec website) to get the perf option. Downloaded all the updates on that page (Windows 7, 64 bit) and thought I followed the instructions well, it started loading, but now it gives me 3 different errors: 1. Straight power up - [bOOT START ERROR] or 2. Power Up, holding Left & Right, goes to Update / Yes then shows [CHECK SUM ERROR] or 3. Power Up, holding Left & Right, goes to Update / Yes then shows [PLEASE SEND PRGM] - I hit PRINT from the Data File Output Utility and [Cannot Access Output Destination] Pops up. What Gives? What should I do next? I attached a screen shot of all the relevant info I could fit. Please feel free to contact me by whatever means are most convenient to you. My contact info is below. Thanks for your help! Alex Wojciecowski Socha Visual Inc. firstname.lastname@example.org (415) 508-5927
