    I'm having a problem cutting with my Graphtec all of a sudden. I don't know if it's a tracking issue or what to call it, but when it cuts it doesn't seem to follow the path correctly. It will do half a letter fine, then it almost connects the anchor points rather than following the curved line. I made a sample to help describe the situation.

    anyone have an issue with this before? I'm running the Graphtec plug-in out of Illustrator. The files seem fine, and I've started fresh and it still cuts odd. It worked perfect as usual for a couple hours this morning then freaked out on the last job.



    thanks,
    cory :help:

    I had a very simular problem. My cut head was lose. I called graphtec and they talked me through tightening it. If you take the cover off you can take you hand and see if there is any play in the head. If there is, there is a screw on either side of the head the screw on the left tighens the right side and the screw on the right tighens the left side.

    tshirt,

    i think i just took the top piece off. there should be two screws on top that hold the piece of plastic in place. whatever i did, it worked. can't remember exactly, but i used the directions in this thread.

    Are the chords straight lines or are they curved? If they're curved then it's likely a tightness issue with the carraige, head, or tool holder or something. If they're straight lines then you might have a squint at the arc tolerance settings both in your plotter and in your software.

    Are you lining up the rollers in the proper positions? They should be under the blue lines that are on the metal bar that the cutting head is attached to.
