    Hey all, hopefully one of you can help me out.

    I was plotting on the Mimaki this morning and it looks like the blade pulled back on a large section of the vinyl and backing and got jammed. I cleared out the vinyl and wiped the blade no problem but now my pressure settings are all WAY off. Normal vinyl for example is usually on a setting of 85 for me but I had to bump it all the way up to 160 to get it to cut and even that wasn't really a proper cut, had to struggle in a few parts to separate it. Anyone know what might've happened and how I can fix it?

    The blade probably broke the tip off. You can look at it with a magnifying glass to confirm. It should be pointy not rounded or chipped.
