Plotter/Cutter

Postby Steve Ogden » December 31st, 2018, 7:28 am

I have purchased a Redsail vinal cutter but I am really struggling to get it to work. My laptop just doesn't seem to be able to recognise it. Any suggestions?

Hi Steve
Once you have calibrated it, made sure you have the right cutting blade offset, and lazer offset if your machine has one, set your weight and speed, your nearly good to go.
The cutting blade should protrude no more than the thickness of a credit card from the cutting head.
when calibrating, take the blade out and use a pen if it came with one, you should be able to print off calibration sheets within the software.

Hope this helps

Jack
The only way is up
