I was super intimidated about spending all that money and not being able to figure out how to use it.  And it was super easy to use! The internet has so many helpful hints but is is truly so user friendly. This machine seems to be right where I want it as far as functionality goes and I really like being able to go on youtube or forums and find answers to my questions and to see project ideas.

Hands on with the Graphtec CE-6000-60

Performance and Use

Good kit, easy set up, great cutter! Fast, Easy set up and use and great quality cuts! No problems so far all is good, we have been producing many vinyl signage. 

 

Pros

This bundle is only available from Swing Design. Each CE6000 comes standard with: floor stands, rear media roll rack with new media brake, Graphtec Studio software, Cutting Master Plug-in, plus Graphtec’s ARMS (Automatic Registration Mark Sensor) system. Professional, reliable servo motors are made for production and accuracy! Contour Cutting with Auto Registration Mark Sensor System Cutting vinyls and contour cutting pre-printed graphics, artwork and media—from large format (up to 48″ with the CE6000-120) solvent based printers, plus water-based inkjet printers and desktop inkjets and laser printers matched up with the CE6000-40 15″ cutter—are what Graphtec cutting plotters are reliably famous for. The new ARMS allows users to increase production efficiency by reducing media waste by expanding the print and cut area. Cutting heat transfer vinyl media and rhinestone design template graphics is a breeze. Cost/Performance Advantage! On the job, the CE6000 series offers real cost/performance advantages over other brands of cutting plotters: rear media roller brake (24″ and 48″), faster cutting speeds and higher cutting force, you’ll have the flexibility to handle a wider range of material. The USB 2.0 full speed data interface or RS232C Serial Port ensures a reliable connection to the computer, either on a Mac or Windows PC.

Verdict

I really like this machine. It cuts very precise. I would have given it 5 stars, but the learning curve on this baby, requires times. It is definitely not “your average Joe, user friendly” type of machine. It is a great piece of equipment to my shop, but getting those precise cuts to match my print, well, it required a lot of reading, watching youtube, watching tutorials, etc. I would certainly recommend it to others. Just make sure you study and learn the proper use of it. If you have a small business and wanted to do larger graphics. This is well worth it so far! Be prepared to waste a little vinyl in setup as it does take a little trial and error on the proper pressure, speed and blade depth. The graphic software is easy to use especially if you already know photoshop or illustrator. The rolls of vinyl come separate and Swing Design was fast to respond to questions. If you are thinking about it….GET IT!

Verdict

This 15″ x 15″ clamshell heat press gives you a large area for t-shirt and fabric heat transferring. Clamshell heat presses save room over the standard swing arm heat presses, and can be easier to manage depending on the set up of your workspace. It cuts good ,building the stand took a little bit the heat transfer vinyl it comes with is thick. Setting the blade is little trickey right now I have it set to cut the decals thinner htv I have gotten ,wondering if I have the same setting just use more cut pressure if it will he better, worth a try for sure. But over all good products. Heat press works grate. The heat press also comes with little book tells you all the temps and hot cold warm peals for all types of htv in case the vinyal dont tell u . U have a good guide to go by. It comes with basic software to cut . U could upgrade the license to higher ones if u want to. But the stock one change them to vectors and cut anything u can find If your trying to design flon ur own think of 70/150/250 are the 3 levels of up grading for the license on top of the price . If your like me find things it works fine

USCutter Presents: How Do I Cut a Sign Using a Vinyl Cutter?

Performance and Use

Initial thoughts out-of-the-box are that the TV is well made. The screen is killer huge and well lit when a bright scene appears. There is no dullness or softness of the image at the corners. The lines are crisp and sharp. The colors are intensely vivid. Video games play well on this TV and look good. This Sony TV even makes rough around the edges Fallout 3 look far better than it looks on my other cheaper TV’s.

Pros

– 34-inch Vinyl Cutter/ Plotter
– FREE Floor Stand
– Three connectivity options: Parallel, Serial, and USB
– USB connection is accomplished through serial conversion
– 3 x 45 deg. blades included
– Pen adapter (use to plot instead of cut)
– Cover
– 2 pinch rollers
– 1 year warranty on the cutter
– Free lifetime phone support – even after out of warranty

Verdict

Easy setup, easy to use, holds a true track better than others I’ve had. Included software is decent. It is excellent it does everything that I needed it to do because I do a lot of crafting. So a struggle at first but after practice and knowing how to set my needle I can’t stay from cutting stuff .

 

 Vinyl Cutting Machine Buying Guide…

Don here with Comm-Fab.  A Vinyl cutter is one of the best investments your business can make it can start turning rolls of vinyl into real dollars in as little as 20 minutes I’m Zack Ellsworth and today I will help you choose the perfect vinyl cutter for your business since you’ve been vinyl cutter shopping you’ve probably found that 24 inch wide vinyl cutters can range in price from $300 all the way up to $3,000 or more so where does it make sense to sacrifice a few features to save a few dollars and when should you spend a little more to pick up features that the less expensive machines might not have let’s start by talking about what you can make with a vinyl cutter in any price range every vinyl cutter you research will give you the ability to make signs decals and heat transfers using standard vinyl’s standard vinyl’s for signs and decals are also known as cast or calendared vinyl’s they stick to any hard flat surface come in colors and leave a gloss or matte finish they can range in thickness from two mil thick to four mil thick if you’ve seen a stick figure on the back of a minivan driving down the interstate then you’re familiar with standard sign vinyl standard vinyl’s for making heat transfers are known by many different brand names if you I recommend our thermo film fashion film or sport film lite these vinyl’s can be heat applied to any cotton or polyester fabric they come in common colors and they leave a gloss or matte finish they can range in thickness from 70 to 120 microns and are used to personalize t-shirts bags sweatshirts banners and more almost every vinyl cutter without exception will give you the ability to make signs decals and heat transfers with these types of vinyl if you’re satisfied using standard vinyl’s exclusively then you can invest as little as $500 in your vinyl cutter we’ll come back to this price range in a few minutes to help you choose which inexpensive cutter is right for you but if you want to do more than decorate t-shirts and standard signs then let’s look at the next set of items you can make with a vinyl cutter did you know that there are films you can cut to decorate performance fabric and other synthetics like swimsuits umbrellas windbreakers and stadium seats these films are different from standard heat transfer films in a number of ways the most important difference to choosing a vinyl cutter is that they are significantly thinner than standard vinyl’s that means the perfect vinyl cutter for cutting these thin films will have superior material handling capabilities and very precise down force to cut just through the film layer of a roll machines with this type of precision cutting and material handling typically have a digital servo control a digital servo control operates in a closed loop which means the cutter is always making adjustments from position feedback to control its motion and final position that not only makes the movement of the cutting head more accurate but also the movement of the roller that feeds the material back and forth through the cutter the other motor option which is typically found in vinyl cutters under $1000 is a stepper motor a stepper motor operates with an open-loop it doesn’t receive any feedback on motion or position and breaks movements into rotations or smaller steps stepper motors are known for how loud they are and are typically warranted for half the time of a digital servo controller if you want to be able to consistently and accurately cut performance heat transfer vinyl’s for applications like performance wear nylon jackets umbrellas and sublimated garments then you will need a vinyl cutter with a digital servo control there are also vinyl’s on the opposite end of the performance spectrum these vinyl’s are very thick and durable designed for application onto jerseys and garments that would be used in full contact sports or for designs that really need to pop off the garment like glitters blocks and puffs these types of vinyls require a vinyl cutter with significant downforce again machines with stepper motors might work for a short while but they will eventually wear out if you’re cutting a lot of thick durable vinyl look for a machine with a digital servo control combined with at least 250 grams of downforce for consistent and accurate cutting on thicker materials it’s in this category of super thick or super thin difficult to cut vinyl’s that the additional features of the premium vinyl cutters begin to differentiate themselves as the best machines maybe you’ve heard of some of these features before but wondered why they matter when choosing the right vinyl cutter for you features like over cut or tangential emulation or guaranteed tracking let’s give some substance to these words and how they relate to the performance you need from your vinyl cutter the over cut feature of a vinyl cutter does exactly what it says it cuts over the end of the line and your graphic to make sure the cut is complete this really comes in handy when you’re cutting rhinestone templates from flock or sandblast material one of the most difficult cuts to complete for any vinyl cutter is a circle and a rhinestone template graphic is nothing but a series of small circles you will want a vinyl cutter with the over cut feature to make weeding your rhinestone template graphics a breeze this feature is available for under $2,000 on the GCC puma 3 and the graft xee 6000 – 60 when a vinyl cutter is cutting the blade is being dragged through the vinyl to cut it and every blade has an angle and an offset this angle and offset from the center of the blade shaft make it possible for the vinyl cutter to find the path of least resistance through the vinyl and when it comes time to take a corner the blade continues to swivel and drag around that corner that’s why it’s important to know the degree and recommended offset for your cutting blade because the cutter will adjust accordingly so that the dragging of the blade around corners doesn’t cause them to become rounded or concave what a tangential cutter does is pick up the blade holder and spin the blade in a completely different direction to create more cleanly cut corners the blade essentially goes off on a tangent or in a completely different direction the graph tech see e6000 the jaguar 4 and the puma 3 all offer tangential emulation mode they lift the blade holder and allow the blade to turn in the right direction this gives you the ability to cut thicker and thinner materials more accurately and achieve finer detail in the graphics you cut another important thing to consider when choosing the perfect vinyl cutter for your business are the types of graphics you want to make if you have the opportunity to sell into the promotional market you may get a lot of requests for graphics that will be applied to the left chest area of a shirt like my shirt is or on smaller items like can koozies or pad folios tablet cases or tablet covers that means you will need a cutter that can handle graphics with fine detail this points us back the vinyl cutters with digital servo controls and features like tangential emulation and overcut these features help you to cut smaller text and graphics cleanly for application onto small items or spaces you might find yourself in just the opposite situation maybe your potential customer base will require large graphics like the one you see on the wall maybe you’ll be cutting team after team for the local soccer league or you might find that you’re asked to produce some large signs for outdoor use or even pinstripe graphics for vehicles or trailers to produce these larger orders and graphics used to choose a vinyl cutter with a sufficient amount of guaranteed tracking guaranteed tracking is the distance that the vinyl roll will feed straight and unattended through the vinyl cutter if you have a pinstripe to cut that’s 12 feet long and you can only feed 10 feet of material through your machine you’re going to add steps to the cutting process again we have to look to the graphtec see e6000 or the GCC Jaguar for to cut graphics for jobs longer than 20 feet at this point we’ve examined the nuts and bolts of a vinyl cutter and how the features found in some of the premium machines can actually help you return more on your initial investment now it’s time to bring the inexpensive machines back into the conversation because it’s time to talk software whether you’ve decided on investing less than $500 or upwards of 2,000 the software that is included or available for your machine can make all of the difference it all software is not created equal every vinyl cutter requires a vector file to be sent to it for cutting and there are two design software’s that are staples in the creation of vector graphics CorelDraw and Adobe Illustrator if you plan on using one of these to design software’s make sure the vinyl cutter you were purchasing has a plug-in that is compatible with them the GCC machines come with a plug-in called great cut the roland machine comes with cut studio and the graphtec machines come with cutting master three all three are compatible with CorelDraw and Adobe Illustrator on PCs but only the graphtec plug-in works out of the box with illustrator on a Mac these plugging also control the contour cutting capability of your machine almost every premium vinyl cutter gives you the ability to contour cut full-color graphics using registration marks this is normally done through an automatic process built into the machine and plug-in software graphtec calls at the arm system and rollin calls an optical registration and this is where the GCC expert LX stands out among its inexpensive competitors most machines with contour cutting capability in the economy price range require you to manually align the registration marks with a laser pointer on the machine the expert LX uses what GCC calls the auto aligning system to read the registration marks automatically for you this feature saves you time and is more accurate than the normal process required by other less expensive contour cutting machines but what if you don’t want to spend the extra 500 to 1000 dollars on a design software like CorelDraw or Illustrator that was built to do way more than graphics for just vinyl cutting some vinyl cutter manufacturers thought of that and they included design software in addition to their plug-in for CorelDraw and illustrator Rowland’s cut studio plug-in gives you some design capabilities in graft X design software graphtec studio provides a host of additional design options including advanced shapes and freehand tools along with a tool for making bitmap files cut ready one thing missing from all of these software solutions is clipart templates and design effects that work specifically for vinyl cutting that’s where stalls is different no matter which vinyl cutter you buy from Stahl’s you receive free and full access to our cloud-based design solution called cadworxlive.com you can layout team names and numbers make your customers artwork cut ready with the scan and vectorized feature and easily create and cut multicolor text with the cut out line tool and cut by color functionality built right into the software in addition to that cadworxlive.com sizing wizards you can adjust to your customer sizing needs with the click of a button cadworxlive.com work anywhere whether you want to design alongside your customer in the office or in the comfort of your own home this cloud-based solution gives you the freedom to design wherever you have internet access and there’s no limit to the number of computers you can use it on and as an added bonus there’s also no limit to the storage space for your designs when finalizing your decision on the perfect vinyl cutter for you should also ask what comes in the box or what’s included with your purchase price some vinyl cutters come with a stand and some require an additional purchase to add the stand the stand is necessary to get the most out of the guaranteed tracking so make sure to find out if it’s included the graphtec c– e6000 includes the stand in the purchase price one last important item to note that comes out of the box is the cutting blade your cutter can have every feature available in the world but won’t be much help to you without a quality cutting blade in the blade holder once again the graphtec delivers the blade that comes in the box will cut up to four thousand linear meters before needing to be replaced.
