Hi all.

Could anyone tell me how to turn off the page cut thingy on this machine. It automatically goes to cut off the vinyl after every plot.

Cheers.
Andy.

Hi Andy,

I have just come off the phone with Mike from Solutions 2.
He suggested it is going to be a setting that got changed somewhere, either on the machine or in the software.

He said it is hard to navigate around the controls of the machine without a manual, as there is no display to read, so need a series of button presses.

It could be a setting in the software, but would need to know which software you are using in order to make a suggestion?

Hope this helps.

Martin.

Hi Martin

Cheers for the reply. I was using flexi-sign with the plotter but that computer decided it had seen enough of this planet :S

I'm now running it through sign wizard 6 but there isn't anything in that plot program to turn off the page cut option.
I do have a manual for the plotter and there is reference to the page cut option but as I've never had any training on it and it was bought second hand the buttons and light sequences mean absolutely nothing to me.
The only obvious thing is the jog buttons and the 'home' button.
I took the additional blade off which is used in the page cut hoping it would solve it but it just uses the plotter blade instead. The only way i can stop it is by lifting up the guard when it's finished plotting, but you can guarantee I'll be distracted by something or someone just at that moment.
I guess if I were to go through the manual as if from scratch I could work it out, but the miser i work for has little patience when it comes to anything technological. If it's counter productive then its not important enough.
In fact, I'm only doing this for my own benefit because I'm frustrated by it. It is little benefit for the company because the work is being done. That's the only important thing.

Sorry, this info is of no interest. It's been one of those decades.

Anyhow, if there is a shorthanded way of solving this I would be grateful.

Cheers.
Andy

Hi Andy,

Not sure I can suggest anything else as I use a Graphtec cutter and CorelDraw and SignLab, so everything that you are not.

Anyone else?

Cheers. I'll resort to the headscratching and daunting task of reading through the gobble-de-gook of a manual. I say manual but its only a handbook.
If I find a solution I'll be sure to post it. It may be useful to others.
I don't know how old this kit is but I remember using a gerber 4A. That was a piece of pi** compared to this one!
It looks like I'm gonna have to learn morse code or something to navigate it!
Luckily I also use graphtec plotters but this is the only one we have to cut 4ft rolls.

Regards.
Andy.
