  1. i have not cut ppf with it since xpel is local to me they cut it out for me ready to go if were not bulk cutting. These machines are all picky and can be frustrating at times , even the expensive ones. Once you figure out its quirks and do's and dont's , its pretty easy to use and maintain but i always babysit the plotter as its running. I was actually looking into the titan 68" for my next one because its large enough to do ppf and still reasonably priced under 2k. Don't want to lead you down the wrong road but may be worth a shot to save some money
  2. i use suntek for the program and the patterns are ok sometimes they are wrong , as far as patterns go i have seen xpel to be spot on. It took some playing around to figure out the plotter to cut the tint correctly. Too much pressure you cut all the way through and too little you don't cut enough. Honestly have to mess with it till you dial it in to your liking. Blades i think and don't quote me on this but a pack of 4 25 degree roland blades is $60 maybe. i change mine out every 4 months it seems. The suntek pattern program is a monthly fee and not sure if we are allowed to discuss those prices on here. To me it seems reasonable for the volume i cut out.
  3. Take this for what it is. We have a US Cutter 50" Laserpoint II plotter that brand new costs maybe $800. When going from hand cutting to plotting i already owned this plotter for vinyl sign purposes as a side gig. So far it has been cutting out about 60 cars a month (give or take) for over a year. Is it as awesome as a Roland or GCC, probably not. I will say that even though the cost of the machine was cheap, it has done a fantastic job cutting tint. Being that it is a budget plotter, it has some quirks every now and then but im ok with that. For as cheap as it was new and the amount of use i have gotten out of it i have no problem recommending this plotter to people looking to make that jump without wanting to spend thousands. Buy some roland blades, replace the cutting strip every so often, and play with the speed and pressure settings and it will cut everything you want. Hope this was somewhat helpful.
  4. Tesla Model 3

    Yes sir, i typically reverse roll all my windshields. Also use the soak shield rope and dash towel to minimize the water going behind the dash!
  5. Tesla Model 3

    Did my first Model 3 last week, we did the the whole thing including windshield in ceramic and also did the entire front end in PPF. Customer is loving it and i actually enjoyed working on this car. My helper did crunch a cut out while i was shrinking he opened a door on the other side and those shoot down quite a bit so had to re cut that door but it was hella funny seeing his reaction. Love this forum thanks for everyone's input .
  6. US Cutter SC Series

    I have a laserpoint ii from us cutter and it works great for cutting tint. As far as the pressure setting, each film is different and you need to figure it out by trial and error. I have mine set at 300mms and the pressure varies depending on thickness of film as well as how old the blade is 25 degree blade from roland i think is what i use. Hope that helps. Also due to this being a cheaper plotter you will have issues here and there where it gets a mind of its own but still gets the job done.
