    I am trying to cut templates out of plotter paper. Can I cut paper all the way through on this machine without a backer? No luck yet.:omg2:

    Not going to happen. You need the backer to give the media strength. Could you just make a vinyl template?

    Put a pen and draw on the paper, then cut out by hand.
    or maybe try the pounce option if you have it.

    The CraftRoboPro is a CE5000 that can do this.
    I think it has a carrier for the paper????

    I don't know about paper but the plotter has the ability to "kiss cut" on vinyl and this sounds like what you have described.... I have not attempted it but read about this feature on the Graphted website. Hope this helps...

    I have cut stencils from 4-5 ml PVC from Hobby Lobby for airbrushing. I put application tape on the back and have a setting to cut the material without cutting the mask on the back. I then rub a small amount of charcoal to see the stencil cut. Make sure you "tab" areas you don't want to lose. I remove the mask by wetting it and letting the adhesive dissolve.

    We tried once and all it did was tear the paper up and get stuck.
