Hi I'm using this drivers in XPSP3 and I am failing at the vector printing/cutting.

I'm testing my scenerios with the pen rather than cutting until I figure this thing out.
I can print FONT text just fine of various sizes - cool.
I cannot print jpg - this is expected.
I took a jpg --> convert to bmp ---> opened in InkScape and followed a tutorial that had me save as an EPS file.

I have InkScape (latest), Illustrator CS2 (trial), Autocad 2008 (trial), Gimp, Office 2007 (Publisher, word, Visio etc).

In each of these I tried importing the EPS file and tried to print the vectored image and the pen does not pick up between "cuts". It starts out up, drops to draw and goes back to the origin each cut, but draws a line all the way back to the origin.


If I leave it until the very end - it will pick up the pen again. It doesn't seem to matter what image I use. as simple as a circle will fail.

Sounds like you have the wrong driver... Or some kind of poor communication via the port on either the cutter or the computer, could also be the cable.... I would be interested in doing a remote session with you even though you bought from Bridge!! I will e-mail you and we can post the solution here later, cause I will find it....

Yeah long story short - Bridgecutters Lied about 64bit driver (my desktop is 64bit only :)) support in Vista back in 2007. It was an xmas gift for my wife - so it sat in a box beyond return period before xmas.


I have not had very many windows to try this at home as I don't have 32 bit any more - I brought it to work where I've been testing this puppy out on my 64bit Win7 laptop using the very very cool 32 bit XP Mode (yes sorry in the enterprise only). You would think the whole virtual layer that could be tweaking this scenario, but in my many small windows of attempts over the last 2 years I've run into this issue as well as a gaunlet of others

I've tried other drivers (winline) and they all failed - not to dimension, part of the image on many different areas of the page. I saw on other posts that the MH721 and the Roland DG 1000 may also work - but I have not found these drivers to try them.
