    Easy Cut Studio plotter install

    first I would make sure you have installed the usb chipset driver for your particular plotter or it will not communicate with any software using usb. after that I would contact make the cut company that sells that software - same as sure cuts a lot

    EH721 Vinyl Cutter Won't Connect - Windows 10

    signcut will work with creations in corel or ECS - a null modem serial cable has a different pin configuration from a regular serial cable - the refine MH series requires the use of a null modem cable to communicate to the plotter as darcshadow indicated. you also as mentioned before have to use the proper drivers for the chipset in any serial to usb adapter you are using

    just went to the sawgrass site and it looks like it is now called sawgrass virtuoso print manager. . . . https://www.sawgrassink.com/support/vpm Thinking David@uscutter.com should be able to provide the info on the new software, call uscutter support and they will walk you thru the steps in troubleshooting

    EH721 Vinyl Cutter Won't Connect - Windows 10

    You will first need the driver for your particular usb to serial adapter. Most success here in the USA has been with the key span brand. What cutting software will you be using?

    Application help with printable adhesive vinyl

    if they used an aqueous ink on regular vinyl it will smear as it will never dry - - - they would have to use special aqueous ink media to print on. but any printer doing this should have that info already

    Application help with printable adhesive vinyl

    haven't used anything from that particular printer but if the ink is dry it shouldn't smear - - - for 18x24 yard signs I always used my felt covered big squeegee - made by . . . .big squeegee. I printed them slightly oversized and later learned to add registration tic marks in 2 of the corners to speed the process. I would start in the middle and when I peeled the backing off just cut it straight and apply the first 1/2 - then turn it around and repeat. it is helpful to use the overlap art of the vinyl to adhere it to my cutting mat so it didn't slide.
