Default Titan 3 ARM ?

Does anyone have the pleasure of owning a Titan 3, and if so can you recommend it? Also looking at the Puma 3.

I have had one for two years now. Had the motherboard go out after 4 months of use but US cutter replaced it under warranty. Otherwise, my cutter has worked VERY well and continues to do so.

If you are considering a Titan 3 you might want to look at the Saga cutters, Saga actually makes the Titan, the big kicker is that the Saga has a 5 year warranty.
I have one I have used for 3 years no and haven't had one problem with it. The Dragon cut software that comes with it is especially tweeked for ARMs contour cutting on the Saga machine.. I got mine from these guys, https://www.cutterpros.com/precision...inch-24-8-inch

I was having trouble with the private message so here i am again. Which software do you suggest i choose, VinylMaster or sure cuts A lot? I've used Sure cuts a lot before but wondering which is better. Which do you use? And you mentioned the folks at Cutterpros will match uscutters price and still give you the 5yr warranty, is that correct?
Thanks for all this info.

I have the Titan 3 SE ARMS and use Vinylmaster it came with and it contours very good once calibrated. I was manual lining up crop marks for over 5 years and never thought an auto contour would be acceptable and was blown away at how much time it is saving me. I set the contour save as PDF and print with a Gerber Edge FX, load in the Titan hit start and walk away. I can reprint that pdf a week later and do the same. I use bar code for laser scanning. A small logo i would struggle with manually getting acceptable cuts would take an hour to get 20 good ones, now i get 50 good ones in 3 minutes.
But as he said Dragon software works same and is same as Vinylmaster just like Titan and Puma Saga are same. Just different logo in software. There the secret is out, all made in china rebranded. Ever noptice all chinese food menus look same different logo.

If you are going to do ARMS, we recommend you stay with VinylMaster / DragonCut. I don't think the other software packages have the ARMS dialed in as well as this software does.
If you aren't doing the ARMS then DragonCut / VinylMaster / SCALP / SignCut / Flexi are all options.

Another thing i like with the ARMS and barcode is it doesnt make you use scan marks that sit 1 inch outside of the print wasting vinyl.
But yes vinylmaster has auto laser calibration and then i manually added a smidge left and smidge down in software wrote to cutter memory and its perfect everytime.
If you print and cut its a well worth $1200 buy. If cutting vinyl only its more than you need.
I got a refurbished Titan 3SE for $1053, and its saved me so much time im here typing instead of Pen plotting checking the cut then cutting again with blade only to find the pen isnt exactly where the blade will land and throwing it in trash. Bigger decals its fine but small were a mother. Threw more away then i mailed before the T3.

Im raving about the cutter not who sold it. They talked me into the cutter i replaced stating it would work with laser in Flexisign, well it didnt work, then when axis motor died i upgraded, they sent me a T2 no ARMS 1st that i had to return then wait for the T3. So i was cutter less for near a month. Its all the cutter is awesome only.
Actually if not for a refurb at $1053 i would have got the Saga from cutterpros and if he is correct be here slamming that it doesnt contour for crap with dragon software. Funny huh. I would have returned it bought a Graphtec then. So i saved $800 in the end.
