  1. Hey, I found some of my old trading cards (Pokemon in this case) and saw that there is quite a lot of people creating 3d cards out of it and I wanted to try this on my own. I was curious if there is a way to cut out detailed areas of the existing cards? My thoughts on this are: There must be a way to scan the card for the software to recognize, so that I could trace the desired area and only cut out this part. I think that this option may lead to problems with the details due to the possible loss while scanning? I could try to edit a picture of the exact same card and only import the desired detail into the software, place and cut it. I guess there will be huge problems in terms of alignment and correct size, especially when dealing with small areas. Maybe I'm missing something here or/ and that my thoughts are way too complicated on this but I would appreciate any kind of help/ hints. Feel free to ask if my description is kind of confusing ofc.
  2. Hi Guys! I have a question about my graphtec plotter. I have a CE7000-60 which is a couple months old maybe 2-3. I have had no issues so far with it and its been cutting flawlessly. I cut die cut stickers with the perf channel on it and everything comes out amazing. I been having a recent issue though where I print something and laminate it, once I do that I load it on the cutter to read the registration marks. It will start to cut everything good but when the head moves from one side to the other to start a new row it will scratch the top part of the laminate. It’s pretty noticeable when the light shines on the laminate,. I know why it happens, my material tends to buckle in the center causing the blade to lightly score the prints when it moves from side to side. My question is I have adjusted the tool height on the “Tool” settings to “High”, is there any long term problems that may develop to the head if I leave this as default? After setting it to high it doesn’t scratch the material anymore. I just wanted to make sure I didn’t cause damage to the head tool from leaving it on high. Hopefully you guys can shine some light on me ! Thank you in advance!!!
  3. Hi all, I've been trying to set up my Seiki 720T Vinyl Cutter, however I cannot get hold of the drivers required for it to work properly on my computer. I have scoured the web and checked the seikitech forums, however they seem to be down and only displaying the message: " Upgrading the forum... Don't worry, we will be back shortly with an updated forum. It will only be a minute ;)." If anyone knows where I can get the drivers required at this point in time, that would be greatly appreciated. Additionally, when plugged in, the only changes in the device manager are under the USB heading rather than the Ports (COM & LPT). Is this due to the lack of drivers or is it just a misunderstanding between me and the tutorial videos I've been following? Thanks in advance
  4. Hi, I have an older vinyl cutter that I got from a friend and am trying to get to work. I can not get a test cut to work on the cutter which is the step i need to do before i even try to connect it to any software. The manual says if it happens I should do this The PEN MODE LED and POWER/ERROR LED blink simultaneously This flashes if the location of the pinch rollers is not correct (that is, if the pinch rollers are not positioned above the grit rollers). If DIP switch SW-9 on the CM-24 is set to ON (piece material) and material with a vertical length of 100 mm (3-15/16") or less has been loaded, or if SW-9 is set to ON and there is no material over the front and rear paper sensors. You can cancel the error by pressing the SETUP key. Refer to "3-5 Loading the Material" to load the material correctly 12:00 i have the SW-9 switch on and my piece of vinyl is 24'' long it is also positioned over the leftmost grit roller correctly according to the pictures in the manual. I watched a lot of youtube videos on this and it seems like I am doing everything right. I attached a video of me doing it in case it helps. 20200808_111053.mp4
  5. Hi all! I recently purchased a plotter cutter and I don't know what brand or model it is. Because of that, I can't figure out what driver I should be using to start cutting. I keep selecting different ones and nothing seems to work. I have removed the top panel of the unit and found Jin Ka printed on the green electronics panel but it looks like there are a lot on "Jinka" models spread throughout a bunch of different brands. Goldencut, Rohs, etc. I'm feeling like I'm nearing a dead end. Please help. Thanks!
  6. Dear community, I am the proud owner of a newly purchased used Graphtec FC2200/90 flatbed plotter from about 1989 to 1992. The plotter is in a generally excellent condition and ready to use. Since I have problems using the Plotter with Adobe Illustrator in combination with Cutting Master 4 Plugin, I would like to know, if it is possible to update the plotters firmware to ‘Plotter Firmware v4.50 for Graphtec FC2250’? I am not sure, weather the FC2250 v4.50 Firmware is suitable for my FC2200/90 plotter. I would also install the ‘Windows Driver OPS662 (v3.90)’ on my Windows Laptop and install ‘Cutting Master 3 for Windows Ver.2.2.1252’ instead of the current version. I would be extremely grateful for any help!!!
  7. Hello! I work with Graphtec FC8600-160 for about one year. The problem is- Cutter use less pressure on very left side of cutting job. I use 53 inches- 137 cm. It's very thick over laminated material. I use special cutting knife for thick materials and it works pretty well, but I can not calibrate right pressure to cut all wok good. If the Right side is very ok, then left side is less ok, and opposite... May be some of had the same issue with other cutters or directly with FC8600-160?! Thanks!
  8. hi, i have an old graphtec fc3100-120 cutter. it used to be connected to a very old mac that died. now i want to connect it to a newer pc, i have got signblazer elements, got the connecter cable and linked them up, set the cutter to HP-GL mode, but now a bit stuck, someone reccomended that i need a driver for the pc, is there any free ones i can get to see if it works? and is there any other things i might need to do? thanks

I've waited too long but it does not start on cutting. When i cancel the job , it only display "please wait JOB CANCELLING" i also waited for too long but no response from the machine. I already consulted the admin of sure cuts a lot, they help me with my problem, i sent them the svg file i used , they tried it to other machine, and its ok, svg file is working fine.

My GCC-i craft was stock at home, it so useless if i cant cut anything i've downloaded from the internet even tracing doesn't work also.

    Vinyl Printer/Cutter

    Hi guys im new here! I wanted to ask if anyone knows about any affordable printer/cutter machine to make quality stickers that comes with a easy to use vector program on the market I can look into. I plan on printing stickers for others but Im getting confused on what people use for actual smaller stickers with vibrant colors.
  13. We are using the VinylMaster Cut v4.0 with SC-34in Cutter. I have an oval that needs to be cut out knowing it is wider then the vinyl. How do I tell the cutter to cut it in half so I can have a seam down the middle. I will try to send a pic.
  14. Hi guys, im new here and im looking for a part for the MH721 cutter plotter. The proximity sensor red button has broken, causing the machine to go crazy on startup. Ive managed to take it all to bits and take the old one out I just need to find a replacment if anyone has any ideas please???? Ive attched pictures and as you will see the red button has come away from the wire. Ive looked on google etc and cant seem to find what im looking for if anyone knows the correct name or model part id be well chuffed. Thanks in advance.
  15. I have the MH cutter and it started cutting in one spot. It will not cut a whole word, it just cuts letter over letter in one spot. Everything looks visibly ok. When I turn it on the carriage moves the length of bed. Can anyone help?
  16. I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction and tell me if the z-axis chip on on the RedSail R series cutter is located on the motherboard? I need to replace the chip based on the carriage issues Ive diagosed however I dont know where it is. Ive done my own research and Ive attempted to reach Sign Warehouse however its probably easier to have someone at Enron answer the phone than them. Thanks

    New Cutter Time

    Ok folks, it's time to upgrade my cutter. I was thinking about upgrading to a Roland from the lasercut 2 that I have. The Roland I was thinking about: I know I do not want another budget cutter, and am looking forward to improving my equipment. Any thoughts on this cutter, or is there one out there a bit better, in the same price range? Also, most these cutters should work with the SCALP4 I'm running. OR do I upgrade my program too while I'm at it? I'm used to SCALP, but not necessarily married to it. I'm just looking for some personal feed back on the equipment you have owned, and currently own, and why. Thanks in advance for your insight!! P.S., I was also looking at the Titan 3 as well maybe...
  18. Hello! I have been using a Vinyl Express R Series II 24" vinyl plotter for about a year now. Needless to say, I have certainly outgrown it, and need something bigger and better. I found a listing in my area for a used Mutoh Kona 1400 55" cutter. I've worked with a Mutoh LFP in the past, but not one of their cutters. The price is reasonable, and I could easily pay for it in one job or two. My questions are: Does anyone else use the same cutter? Is it worth purchasing used? Could I use LXi Expert with it? I'm still doing research on my own, but I wanted to check here and see if anyone else would recommend buying this cutter. Thank you in advance!
  19. Hey guys! So, I am wanting to move forward a bit, and looking into getting a cutter/printer in one. I am thinking 24inch is the size I would like, and I will need to look into laminating as well. But, just to mess around, what is a good deal on a cutter/printer combo? I am wanting to spend under 2 grand shipped if possible, thanks! -Russ
  20. Hey y'all, It's Sarah again. Right now I'm cutting with the MH871-MK2, and it's done well for what I was doing. Now I'm getting into contour cutting (I have a designjet z6100 for printing) and need something with laser/optic eye for contouring... I found a greeeat deal for a USC LaserPoint2 that somes WITH VinylMaster.. It's 379.00. Now, I have a huge order coming due where I'm going to need contour cutting in small letters. Will that machine work and work well? I want to get a Graphtec, but until I get this order DONE, the money isn't available... so should I go for the good deal and get the LP2? I've read a little about the Titan 2 and 3 and honestly wasn't impressed... Also, is the LP2 stepper or servo?? Thanks! Sarah
  21. Hello; I own a Graphtec Cutting Pro FC4100-75 My problem is when turned on, cutter motor starts up, top left light is solid green, then will not go further, the screen remains clear of any info or options except for faint grey dots. I have tried unplugging for a few hours, also turning off and on while holding up arrow or down arrow. Still nothing. Manual only suggest possible ROM or RAM issue. I wrote Graphtec and they suggested "If the screen is clear and the machine is on then it could either be a mainboard or an LCD issue." I have attached a photo. There are faint dots when turned on, so would that mean the LCD is OK?. Jobs spool and complete (I use signlab) on the PC running it. If anyone knows of this problem can help point me in direction or add insight I would be greatly appreciated.
  22. Hi! I am currently looking to purchase a cutter which can cut mylar stencils for sign making. From the research I have done so far, I have not found or have a great understanding of what is the proper machine to purchase. Can someone help direct me? Is US Cutter where I should be looking for a cutter of this sort? Thanks and much appreciated!
  23. Hi, I haven't used my Foison C24 cutter for a few years and have just setup a PC running Windows 7, installed Sign Blazer 6.06 (Came with cutter) and the USB drivers for the cutter. Powered up the cutter and PC, yet i can't seem to get them to talk to one another. Any ideas? 1. The cutter goes through the motions if i hold the test button down (makes all the right noises and moves etc). 2. Sign Blazer starts fine, in the cutter options it finds the driver for Foison C24, it also shows COM4: USB Cutter (or similar on the USB connection and changes if i put it in another port) 3. Hitting "cut tile" brings up the usual screen and time to complete bar as if it has talked to the cutter (If i switch the machine offline before this, then it waits - so i'm thinking it is somehow talking to it to know that it's offline) 4. Cutter sits there like a lemon.... Could Windows 7 be the problem? Have i missed a critical setting somewhere in the Cutter Setup dialog box? Any help would be much appreciated Thanks Jim
  24. Question for everyone, looking to order new vinyl cutter. I like the titan 3 was torn between the 28" and 68" like the 28" price but don't want to be limited in the future on design sizes. anyways I saw on ebay they have a 54" cutter for sale for a really good price and that would be a good size for the me. question is was there anything wrong with the 54s and should I purchase a cutter that has no warranty like the one on ebay. Thanks for the help.
  25. I ordered a KNK Force and accessories a month ago and need to sell it. I just don't have the time that I thought I'd have to learn it in-between work and family (spouse has various health issues that have cropped back up). Blades were never used, only my pen tool. Everything is in perfect shape. (1) KNK Force (1) KNK Force Engraving Tool (2) KNK Force Standard Detail Blades (Red) (2) Force 15"x15" Mats (6) Oracal 651 Vinyl 12" I'm using SCAL 4 Pro for Mac, but you can use any software that's compatible. I'll have to read the terms on SCAL 4 Pro for Mac, but the license may be non-transferrable. Contact me if you're interested.
