Install Vinyl Cutter in Artcut

Our vinyl cutter supports the standard DMPL (Digital Microprocessor Plotter Language) and HPGL (Hewlett-Packard Graphics Language) command set. http://am.co.za/ This means that every cutting plotter or normal plotter design and control software will be able to utilize our vinyl cutter to cut vinyl.

Discontinued and Limited Support for Artcut Software

Artcut software's latest version was developed in 2008. It is therefore not completely compatible with newer versions of Windows or with the more recent range of vinyl cutters. It is for this reason that we will no longer be providing full support for Artcut software as of the beginning of September 2014. Should you specifically wish to purchase the Artcut software, you are welcome to purchase it from us. While we are still offering the product, we are just not able to provide sufficient support for the product, you will need to use Artcut Support Forum for support instead.

How-to Use Vinyl Cutter in Artcut

Uncheck "Max Length of Each Plotting" (NOT recommended for older model), http://am.co.za/ this to insure that you can output an artwork with unlimited length to your vinyl cutter.

For "Sharp Angle" setting, keep it 0 for a normal cut. http://am.co.za/ If you need to cut small letters which are smaller than 5mm in height, then you can change the setting to 0.3-0.5mm. Recommended "Sharp Angle Compensation" figure depends on your vinyl cutter blades used.
