Thank you for sharing the file I did not have this and it is very helpful for a beginner. Any ideas what the 'default' setting should be for Oracal 631 vinyl? I had speed at 60 pressure at 40 and blade at just less than 3 and areas still not quite cut thru some areas.
I normally cut Oracal 651 with a down force of 35 t0 40 and vary the speed from from 20 cm/sec to 40 cm/sec or higher depending on how detailed the cut is.
The "3" setting on the blade really doesn't matter much since you can have it set to 3 with no blade showing or crank it down and have way too much blade showing.
The rule of thumb most used is that the blade should be extend out of the holder about 1/2 the thickness of a credit card. Mine is set at 1/32 of an inch or even less and barely extends from the holder at all.
One way to get close to where it should be is to remove the blade holder and run the blade across a scrap piece of vinyl.
Adjust the blade until it cuts through the vinyl and just barely leaves a mark on the paper backing. Then tweak it from there.
