PrismCut

Recommended Posts

I have been doing a little research on this plotter. I’m looking for a backup. Use to using graphtecs but my question is is this a plotter more for hobbyists?

You might need to wait until someone form USC or an actual owner to chime in with an experienced answer.

I would guess, based on price, features and specifications, that's it's a high end hobby, or a starter small business machine. Keep in mind that it has a stepper motor, so the level of accuracy is probably not on par with the Graphtec, but depending what you're cutting (or plotting), you might not need that level of accuracy. For that ballpark of money, I would probably kick in a little more the Titan.

If you end up buying one, please let us know your thoughts about it.

A number of people have been wondering if the PrismCut is for professionals or high end hobbyists.It seems that the specifications and performance of the PrismCut tend to blur those lines:

On the one hand the sleek design suggests a high end hobbyist machine, but at the same time it can cut tiny 2mm lettering at a level of precision you will not find on other cutter/plotters regardless of price. So we have to ask ourselves what can a "professional" machine do that the PrismCut cannot? Early users are saying that PrismCut delivers high quality professional looking results, so however you want to label it is largely a question of personal preference.

Here is a challenge that will show it's up to the task - duplicate these cuts on the prismcut and post - will be a big boost for the plotter.  The car was done by our late friend mr300s and is from the bill woods car cd - on a ce5000 - the ega was done on a ce5000.  will be a great way to show off the capabilities of the new plotter or even pick one of the winning designs from last years contest USC sponsored on the forum.

for comparison this is the same ega done on a titan2 within minutes of me unboxing and with a new cleancut blade installed

I'd like to see what the Prism can do too.
