    Hi,

    i watched Graphtec's video, and I can get it to perf cut my laminated printed vinyl, BUT the cut looks very rough. I'm using the cutting master 2 plugin for illustrator.

    I read that people put transfer tape on the back and cut thru (not perf pattern) but i'm not sure i understand it right.


    Also, how in the world do you make the backing paper split? never tried it, just curious :)


    I'd appreciate any help with the perf cut techniques.


    Thanks,

    Tea

    I've tried to perf cut with the same cutter as you with limited success. It was a little rough around the edges and the cutting strip is getting a little worn. I'm in the process of upgrading to a Summa cutter and these issues will be a thing of the past.

    You have to move the blade to the gap ahead of the cutting strip. Don't tear up your cutting strip lol
    My settings for FC-8000 are Tool 3
    cut line pattern on
    up 0.8 mm
    cut 20 mm

    try that

    I gave up on it :(

    I print and cut, then just separate them all manually.
    I assume that there are tools, but my volume wouldn't justify the purchase.

    Good luck!
