    Sorry, been busy, im going to open that file and check, i remember it stopped on the last e of the word. Question for all you graphtec owners, what settings do you use for regular vinyl. I just left them at their default, i slow it down and bump up the pressure to 50 for chrome. Also i think my blade is going already, about 8 months old. How long do they last? My mimaki plotter blade last around a year. Also i love how i can control the graphtec from my comp.

    Settings for regular vinyl? I have a current chart with 12 different settings for all different materials. There is no way for one of us to tell you what settings you need. Your blade depth and material are two key factors.

    Your blade mileage is going to depend on material and inches cut. I'm on my second in 7 months and I cut mostly calendered vinyl.
