  1. Graphtec Tangetial emmulation

    There's a reason to use Tangential Emmulation...that reason is NOt to cut tiny characters, although sometimes it's useful for that. You use tangential control to cut thick materials, typically on the order of .035" or so, where you just can't physically pull a swivel knife through an acute angle...
  2. Graphtec Tangetial emmulation

    Tangential control will benefit you most if you're cutting thick materials. Any Graphtec from 4100 series and up; the CE 1000's and up can cut 1/16th characters (upper case, no serifs)...that's 0.062", and the lower case is .7 of that. Sometimes you can weed off the liner, sometimes you need...
  3. Serious cutting issues with Graphtec!

    Here's Graphtec's tech support #. 888 318 3247 It sounds to me like you have too much blade extended. I don't think Tangential Control has anything to do with your problem. Pay attention to your blade settings, as I told you. FORCE....probably 35 or so depending on what you're cutting...

  5. Graphtec die cutting

    Pouncing is the technique of poking holes in paper along a the lines of a of design so one can hold that paper with it's design up against a wall, lets say, and force a fine powder or paint, perhaps, through the holes so as to leave a vague outline of the design on the wall to serve as a guide...

  8. Help, Can't Cut Anything

    If I remember correctly (can't guarantee that) Flexi outputs to Graphtec in GPGL unless you tell it otherwise. Anyway, sounds like a HPGL / GPGL conflict to me. But most of it's working if wou successfully cut from Corel. hk
  9. Help, Can't Cut Anything

    It means you're in HPGL. The question is, do you get communication even though the size might be incorrect?
  10. Help, Can't Cut Anything

    You don't say what language you're using...HPGL or GPGL. They need to be the same. You can find out quickly enough on the graphtec side: Put the machine in PAUSE; NEXT a couple of times 'till INTERFACE; COMMAND. Whatever it is, change it....see if you get communication. If you're working in...
  11. Cut-Through Plotter? from a Noob

    XX....easier than writing 7000-75; -100; -130, etc. Put the machine in PAUSE (Menu button) NEXT acouple of times until you can select FUNCTION 1...do so. Select PREF LINE TYPE If you have been cutting normally, Pref Line Type is set at OFF.... It has a range of OFF through 7. Use the UP...

  13. Cut-Through Plotter? from a Noob

    Actually, it's way easy.. ALL Graphtec FC7000XX machines have a standard feature called "PREF LINE TYPE"...probably a misspelling of PERF LINE TYPE, but no matter. It is a feature created specifically for the garment industry to cut patterns in thick stencil materials similat to oaktag. With...
  14. Graphtec software?

    Go to Graphtec's website, navigate your way through the support, download stuff, until you get to the upgrades. It's all there, and will get you through X3 and CS2. It takes longer to find it than to do it. hk
  15. Graphtec FC7000 advice.

    If you have a computer and use USB port, then do the upgrade. It takes all of 3-5 minutes. You can get the necessary instrucyions from either your dealer or from Graphtec. It is a really simple operation...even I've done it. HK
  16. FC7000-75 Cuts ONLY Horizonal view

    You could do that with the 7000, but you'd have to be in ROTATE mode for it to happen, and you'd know if you were because it shows up on the panel when you initialize the machine. I think your problem is in the definition of Portrait vs. Landscape modes. Change it in your software...not the...
  17. Graphtec Distance Adjust

    Bob and I have had some discussion on this subject before and have different opinions about it; but, if the "off" is in the X direction only, and the error accumulates (grows) in proportion to the length of cut, and seems to be directly related to the thickness of the material, then the DISTANCE...
  18. Fc-5100 and contour cutting

    $800. Machine needs to go to Graphtec for the addition. Consider the warranty, too. Advantage: 7000. Howard Keiper
