Default What software is compatible with GCC Expert 24

I just bought a GCC Expert 24, and the GreatCut software it came with is way too confusing. I want to know what other software is compatible with it. I have VE LXi Apprentice, would that work with this cutter?

you have to have software that has a driver for your cutter....I don't know about the software you listed, but I do know that winpcsignpro 2012 has drivers for your machine...If you are using windows

First off Great Cut is just a cutting utility and you cannot design with it,, if you use AI or corel Draw you can use a bridge to were you can cut directly from either program

You will be able to send to the GCC Expert 24 as long as the software you are using has the ability to send to a "printer".

As someone else said above: Great Cut is a cutting program only. It has minimal tools to design or clean up files. You'll need to use Corel, Adobe or other graphics program to clean up the file first.

you can also work without Greatcut, install the plotter as printer. make your design in Corel of illustrator and make you cut line 0,001 and go to file -> print --> choose expert .. and print your job.

make sure that you cutting line is 0.001 size.

I'm just wondering what the "bridge" is. Is it automatic when you print from AI? Do you have to install a plug-in?

Any help would be fantastic.

Default Re: What software is compatible with GCC Expert 24

I had a GCC Expert 24 a while back...Hated the software it came with. I realize now that it's just a cutting software....but even as a cutting software it was not very efficient IMO.

Ended up getting rid of the GCC and got a Silhouette Cameo. That has served me quite well for quite some time but it's too slow for me now that I am starting to do large scale runs and want to cut multiples of the same design.

So I want to get another GCC Expert because I remember it being substantially faster.

My question is, would the GCC work with the Silhouette Studio software? Because I used that for design very often and then could send directly to the Silhouette Cameo directly in the program. If I could just continue that same design software and just switch the cutter to the GCC that would be the best thing for me.

Anyone know?

Thanks!

You can not cut directly with that software.
