I have had the Force in house a week no.
I also have a Zing and before I used A KNK Maxx.
I live in Norway and we are using g/m2 as term for paper weight.
Once you have sat a recommendation for various paper/cardstock etc. Have you figured this out with a method? I am struggling to find the right settings for it to be nice cuts and wonder if there is a calculation method that I can use.
There’s no direct calculation. The best thing to do is note the following as a guide:
65 lb (cover) = 177 gsm
80 lb (cover) = 218 gsm
110 lb (index) = 199 gsm
Index and cover are obviously different which leads to the confusion. I wish the American paper industry would just use gsm.
That being said, you should always use test cuts to determine how to adjust your settings. In Appendix B5 (Force with C3 UM) or Appendix D4 (Force with SCAL UM), is a flow chart to help you know what to change based on the kind of cut you are getting. If you have any questions about the results of a test cut, please do post back and we’ll get it resolved.
