Exclamation Expert24 Rolls Vinyl Out The Back

Ok so I finally got the cutter cutting but I can't figure out why, after the first time I make a cut, when I go to do another one the cutter rolls the loaded vinyl out through the back of the cutter....

I output the image for the first cut, it cuts if perfectly....

then I place a new design on great cut, click output and it just rolls the vinyl out the back instead of cutting...am I forgetting to do something or doing something wrong?

I'm using 12"x10' rolls of vinyl and I have the designs I need cut set about an inch away from the sides & bottom of the vinyl so the vinyl doesn't back out past the blade...

I also have the correct width & length dimensions entered in great cut/output so the blade doesn't go past the vinyl...everything is centered...but after the first cut I keep having this issue...

please help...thanks!

I am not sure what cutter you have but you have to have it set for a specific roll on the front "Rear Roll, or Front Roll". I am not an expert on cutters as I can only do a few things on it, but saw this late at night and thought I'd offer this in hopes it may trigger something for you. I am sure you will get better information in the am!

Are you using your VLCD monitor to disable the auto roll? is the back of vinyl rising above the back sensor so it doesn't think anything is there?

I figured there was a setting but couldn't figure it out...

dazzabling-what do you mean?
the vinyl is a 10-foot roll...I have the roll on the ...rollers (lol) and the vinyl is fed through the machine about 2 inches past the white cut strip...
also not using the VLCD monitor...should I be?
will that make it stop spitting the vinyl out the back??

haven't had a real chance to sit and figure this out until today....once I finally got it working I ended up getting really busy and haven't had time to spend on it learning how to run it correctly...

I'm guessing I should be using the VLCD monitor then, huh?

In your VLCD, there is an option that says Auto Unroll. Make sure to select Disable from the drop down box next to it.

I read 12 x 10 not the 10`.. But anyway, are you able to put both designs on at the same time instead of stopping in between? Are you making sure that you are resetting the origin if you are cutting off the one design and starting the other.

Also, check your pinch rollers make sure they are holding the vinyl not sure how big your design is just make the rollers are under the white boxes.

VLCD monitor is located on GCC website and you register your cutter with GCC Club.

The latest download is the VLCD 3. It's best to download from the website rather than the CD.

How different are the two designs? Is one larger than the other? Could it be the second one is too big?

aha! didn't reset the orgins.....that makes sense...as far as the designs I make sure I keep em at least a 1/4in. from all sides/ends of the vinyl...don't wanna cut that strip up or have half of a design cut and waste the vinyl...

so right after I make one cut I need to click "restore orgins"...nice...I'll use that VLCD monitor also to stop the PITA rolling out my vinyl...THANKS!

Default Re: Expert24 Rolls Vinyl Out The Back

quick question-
I'm gonna try to press a tshirt with some garment vinyl but I'm not sure which side to cut on...one side is kind of matte but the other side really glossy......is the glossy side that I'd peel off after the cut?
only have a few feet of the garment vinyl and don't wanna waste it by screwing up.

Maybe this will help. Lets say the material is red. Peel up one corner. The red material should be stuck to a clear or frosted backing linner. The material side goes up in the cutter and you will cut the design in reverse. Weed/Peel away the parts you don't want stuck to the shirt. Lay the design, backsheet and material, material side down on the shirt, press, remove the backing sheet. Check the instruction to see if it is a hot or cold peel.

As stated above, the cutter needs to know where it is at all times. You can't be in a hurry when cutting. The origin lets the cutter know where it is and where to start. If you cut off a part of the vinyl the machine still thinks that slice is there. You removed part of the map it was following. It gets lost. If you gang multiple images for a single cut, let the machine finish all the cuts. When in doubt cut, reset origin then cut again.
