    Hey everyone,

    So I recently got this cutter and I am using WinPCsign with it. I finally got it dialled in perfect making great progress cutting detail. The next day I turn it on and go to do a saved job that I had set up the night before and the pressure is all out of wack! All of a sudden it is cutting way to deep (through the backing).

    The delima I am struggling with is, adjusting the pressure through the GCC control panel and or the cutting pressure in WinPCsign before cutting. Currently I have my blade set to 0 on the holder (barely exposed) the pressure on both the GCC control panel setting and the WinPCsign software to 80 and it is still cutting through the backing... I make a test cut, it looks good, than I go to cut a something and its cutting through the backing... Also I am using a Duracal 530 calendered vinyl I think its 3.0mil

    As previously mentioned I had it setup perfect, I had only been using the WinPCsign pressure setting to dial it in and I had it set to 120. This was making fine detailed cuts with no lifting or cutting through the backing.

    Any ideas?

    *Update*

    As it turns out even with the blade a 0 it was still to exposed. If anyone new like me is reading this just know that you can continue to reduce it past 0 (just keep turning it).
    I guess it would be sitting at the equivlent of -2 now...

    I am still not clear as to how I was making perfect cuts at 120 pressure (since it is now at 60 based on the new blade depth). But regardless I am back up and cutting so Im happy I am no longer wasting material.
