Need help calibrating my laser offset
Guest posted a topic in VinylMaster CUT, LTR, PRO & DSRThis is a new one. I've tried all the laser offset tests etc but for some reason my machine still is not contour cutting what I need it to despite getting the blade perfect on the registration mark. I have a pixmax 720 and i have spent all day trying to calibrate the bloody machine. It cuts everything else out perfectly but when i contour cut. It's really frustrating me now! Any advice?
Laser MH 871
kmorenor posted a topic in MH Series Vinyl CuttersGood afternoon friends, I'd like to ask you a question. Recently, I bought a new carriage for my MH 871 MK2, and I realized it has a laser guide. But the blotter doesn't have the pin to connect it. It has the space tough . Is it possible to enable it? Thanks in advance.
Contour cutting without VM, SCAL, etc.
pehjota posted a topic in Pre-sale questionsWe're looking for a value vinyl cutter that can do contour cutting without being driven by VM, SCAL, or similar software. We plan to use our design software (Inkscape) to add registration marks to our images and to generate the HP-GL toolpath jobs. We would send the jobs to the cutter using Inkscape's Plot extension or a tool like InkCut. USCutter support tells me that the SC2 offers an ability to line up the laser from the control panel on the machine but that they only document contour cutting with VM. Can anyone confirm that the laser can be positioned for contour cutting alignment from the control panel without VM, SCAL, etc. on the SC2 (and/or other value models like the LP2)? Pointers to information about this feature would be appreciated. Alternatively, is the serial protocol for the positioning process documented for implementation outside of VM or SCAL?
SC 24 Freezing
jaydeetol posted a topic in USCutter Refine Cutting Plotter Support RequestsCan anyone tell me why my SC 24 won't cut more than 3 jobs at a times? It will either freeze up or just do some random stuff when I try to do something more than ten inches. Also: The laser won't calibrate or successfully contour cut. Using Apple mini OSX 10.11.6 and SCAL 3 pro.
scottabeer posted a topic in General discussionI can't find out how to turn the Laser light on. Because the online manual doesn't match the product I bought, I've had to spend about 40 hours trial and error. No matter where I go, there is NO information on turning the laser on to calibrate it. I have Windows 10 and us Vinylmaster Cut and THAT isn't listed on the us cutters webpage so, you can see how the page is completely different. It doesn't list the software they provide. it doesn't have the operating system that is pretty standard now (and, I checked and it SHOULD have worked fine, right?)
LaserPoint USB port
sleeveofwizzard posted a topic in LaserPoint Cutting Plotter Support RequestsHey guys, A female member of my family that I will not name accidently broke the USB port on my cutter. I read a thread about another member that got a replacement but I am wondering if anyone has soldered theirs. I am sure this has happened to other people because the port is not very well supported. Thought I would ask

When Does The Laser Light Light Up?
maddog posted a topic in LaserPoint Cutting Plotter DiscussionHi All, Newbie here in vinyl cutting I have the LP2 and was just curious as to when the little laser light comes into play? I have only cut some decals so far but have yet to see the laser light, maybe some one can answer this as it has no reference to the light in manual. Thanks
