Hello, I volunteer at the Pueblo Aircraft Museum. We have a vinyl cutting system that is probably over 17 years old. The software is from Gerber Scientific Products with a Mimaki CG-60st. It's running on Windows 2000. It works OK for our uses and the computer is never connected to the internet. It is used maybe a few times a week when we are busy with a restoration or special event. Often it is off for months.
We mostly cut lettering for signage around the museum and stencil masks for aircraft and vehicle restorations. Before I got involved with the museum it was just lettering, but I have added some artwork such as our museum logo and other designs. There is much I don't know about vinyl cutting and the program but we only do in-house work for our Non-Profit operations.
My interest here is to research possible upgrades of our system or determine if we might be better off getting a newer more capable system.
