Am I doing something wrong? CorelDraw x5 to MH 721 cutter

Recommended Posts

I am pulling my hair out over this!!!!!!!!!

I've been designing and cutting maybe a year now. I use CorelDraw x5 to design and export to SignBlazer for cutting.

What's the problem you ask? When I import to SignBlazer there are nodes that are created that are not in the original and it takes me hours to delete them. I think that all my problems will be solved if I were able to cut directly from CorelDraw.

I have an MH 721 (http://www.uscutter....es+Vinyl+Cutter) and a USB to Serial adapter cable (http://www.usbfirewi...rr-usb-017.html).

How can I cut directly from CorelDraw. I have been trying to find drivers, install my MH 721 as a printer and I've got nothing accomplished. I've literally been trying to accomplish this for 3 weeks. I think I've read every forum here on the topic and have tried to follow them all to no avail. Can anyone explain to me from Step 0 to completion?

I read responses here (http://forum.uscutte...ack-cut-direct/) and hope someone can help can help fix this

My equipment:

PC- Inspiron mini -http://www.dell.com/us/dfh/p/inspiron-mini10/pd

Cutter - MH 721 - http://www.uscutter.com/index/page/product/product_id/1548/category_id/3/product_name/USCutter+MH-series+Vinyl+Cutter

Null modem cable - http://www.usbfirewire.com/parts/rr-usb-017.html

Scanner cable - http://www.amazon.com/Cables4PC-PRINTER-SCANNER-CABLE-CANON/dp/B000UWIGGS (not used when trying setup printing)

Thanks

Sign Cut Pro or any other plugin for Corel will do the job.

Only a few machines can be used with PRINTER drivers.

If for the MH there is none I do not know.

If export from Corel as .svg and import in SB as svg does that gives extra nodes?

I cant imagen it does but can you show us the differences.

Many use SB to print the Corel files.
