TOPIC: Printing on vp-540 and trying to cut on graphtec

Printing on vp-540 and trying to cut on graphtec 3 months 1 week ago #6052

I have signlab print and cut 9.1, and versaworks. I am trying to print on the roland vp-540 and then cut on my graphtec FC5100-75. Is this possible. Or is it possible if I buy a new graphtec?

Not possible with the cutter you have or through versaworks. You would need a newer cutter that can search for registration marks and you would have to print and cut via VPM to make this combination work.

So i would print through VPM and then it would put registration marks for the new graphtec to read? My cutter now wont read that mark?

The only other way to do it is buy a roland cutter if i want to use versaworks?

With VPM you can run pretty much any combination of printer and cutter, with versaworks you must have Roland printers/cutters only.
VPM can change the registration marks to suit whichever is supported by the plotter.

I am not sure how versaworks would handle having an additional Roland cutter, as the VP-540 is already a printer/cutter hybrid.

i print on my VS540 and cut on my Graphtec CE6000-120 all the time. the only problem i ever had is when you align your cutter over you reg marks, you DO NOT, hit the origin on your cutter. Just align and then go to your VPM and click on cut.
