I just checked the settings on my Puma III, and in my notes both are 65 grams of downforce, with the 60 degree CleanCut Zecu blade. My blade is out just a bit more than half of a credit cards thickness. As I had said, very few of the Sticky Flock boogers stay on the backing when I peel the design up but, 98% of them come off when I put it on a Cricut mat after cutting. If I look at the backing paper after cutting with a 10x loupe there is just barely any marking from the blade on the backing.You only use 65 grams of downforce for Sticky Flock??? That seems really low. I use the same blade with the same cutter and I use 140 grams of downforce. I noticed that I said earlier that I used close to 160, but my blade was scratching way into the backer paper so I backed off the downforce and the blade depth and it weeds much easier now.
Yes only one pass. And I use the same downforce (65 grams) to cut the SGS Template material, and that leaves about 99% of the boogers on the backing.That's crazy... I accidentally cut at 80 grams the other day after forgetting to change settings back after cutting vinyl.
It didn't cut through very well at all.
You're only using 1 pass?
This is what happens when you use the correct blade and have the depth perfect. Good Going !!!Yes only one pass. And I use the same downforce (65 grams) to cut the SGS Template material, and that leaves about 99% of the boogers on the backing.
When I cut Oracal 751 I only use 35 grams downforce, Oracal 731 I use 30 grams downforce, Siser EasyWeed I use 45 grams downforce, this is with the stock 45 degree Puma III blade.
The Expert Pro is actually only 955.the GCC Puma 3 is great machine. but for people who dont want to spend 1250 GCC makes the expert pro @995 same servo motor and lcd interface just no optical eye.Everyone who i know that has bought the puma loves it. Glad to see you are chef.
Here are some basic differences between the Expert pro and the Roland and Graphtec,So Stephanie, How do you like your Expert Pro? I would like to see some videos of it in action, but I can only find the expert 24 stepper motors. Would you say that the Expert Pro would be a suitable vinyl cutter and I would not need to purchase a GX24 or graphtec?
They are apples to apples,,Yes I don't I would be interested in the optic eye. I was just curious to the performance of the expert pro paired up to the graphtec and Roland since they all have servo motors. I saw a video with the graphtec and Rolands in actions and they both were pretty quick. I was just curious if the speed or the performance of the expert pro was just as good when it comes to cutting vinyl for t shirts.
I suggest taking if off double cut. Only do one pass. See if that helps.
