Ok, I am not sure why my USCutter Titan 3 does this but it does. I would finish a cut in SL9 but before it goes back to origin where it first started, the carriage goes far left where there is no vinyl (blade up), then returns to origin. Why is my cutter doing this? Is there a setting in SL9 that is making this do this?

I think I may know why.
I can either tell you something to try, or send me an email so that I can reply to it with a new driver INI file.

1:
Go to Cut/Plotting Defualts.
Press the Setup button.
Once in Plotter Setup, press the ALT key and the 'e' key at the same time.
NotePad should appear with you driver in it.

Look for
[Generic]
;AbsMove=A
;RelMove=R
MoveUp=PU%.0lf,%.0lf;
MoveDn=PD%.0lf,%.0lf;
Tile=PU0,%.0lf;IN;
Change the line in Red to be
Tile=PU%.0lf,0;IN;

2:
Or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
I will reply with a modified driver.
Please tell me exactly which cutter driver you are using in our program so that I send the correct replacement.
