CT 630 PCCUT SERIES PLOTTER CONNECTION PROBLEM

Recommended Posts

Went back to cadworx, fiddled around, lo and behold the cutting gods rescued me.

 YES!!!!   I cut out to of my old artwork images.

Please don't ask me how I did it, I had to rasterise one image, but the next one I just wireframed it , sent it to vector cut , and it cut perfectly.

I guess somebody up there likes me.

That's a good deal. If I were you I would make some notes on what steps you took so you can look them back up if you don't cut regularly.

I had to come back, I realized what I did.

I first had cadworx edition 3, I went and downloaded edition 2, and that is what did it, 3 didn't support PCUT, but 2 did apparantly.(sic) 

I guess that is good to know, if blazer ever goes bonkers.

more info for guys having problems.

If I leave machine running while I am setting up image to cut, when I send image to cutter nothing happens.

I turn power off to plotter for 10 to 15 seconds, turn back on, send image to cutter, and it cuts instantly, go figure.

Glad you're able to get it to work. Still a good habit to see if you can vectorize your stuff though, because when you need to upgrade (without choice), then all the new stuff cut vector.

an additional thought - the p-cut like many value cutters is more like a schizophrenic - you never know hour to hour which personality you are dealing with   :P
