Compatible Tint Cutting Software

Recommended Posts

I currently have a 52" Vinyl System Specialist plotter. I have been trying for the last 6 months to find a tint cutting software that is compatible with my plotter.  None of the programs I have tried have my plotter on the install list. I have contacted the company that I bought my otter from and unfortunately their lack of knowledge or help was unbelievable. ( I'll post their  response below). I have co tasted a couple software companies and their solution has been for me to purchase a different otter from them lol. My plotter is only 5 years old and works amazing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If your cutter works great, what program have you been using?

Have you tried changing the command language? Are you using a bridge program between your art program to the cutter interface?


Cutters can be finicky getting the initial set up in order. Most shops are using a Roland or Graphtech for the reasons you describe, and even then they may take some time to work out the bugs, especially if you're switching between an art program to a tint program due to the language interface auto changing.

My best guess is the language setting. HPPL vs HPGL if you can toggle between. 

My best advice is to have two plotters. Switching between vinyl/ppf and tint is hard on the cutting strip and usually will waste more film than you would like getting the blade retuned. I learned that lesson years ago and likely saved enough film to pay for the second machine, possibly lowered my blood pressure a little in the process.
