Graphtec FC8000 Reference Settings


New Member
I get a lot of private messages asking for help with the Graphtec's FC8000. I am posting this message with all my reference settings on my machines. I will slowly add all the settings on the machine so please bare with me when I get some down time. I've had my fair share of problems with my machine initially and I guess the manual could explain the affect of each setting on the machine a bit better then just telling us how to change them.
