Hi, this is the first time I'm posting in this thread.

I am quite new to this printing business.

I have owned and still use a Roland Versacamm SP300.

It works really well for me and I'm happy with it.

Just recently I purchased a Summacut D60 because we needed another cutter to do carry out extra work.

However, I noticed that it didn't come with a RIP software like Versaworks. Versaworks is extremely easy to use and very simple.
I can export many designs at once and leave it in a que for it to print out.

I thought Summacut will have a software similar to it but I was wrong.

Just to let you know, I only do vinyl cutting. Where I design using Corel Draw and apply cut lines to the design.

I'm wondering if there are any similar software to Versaworks out there for me to do the job I need to do?

Really appreciate any help

Regards

Hi GNayim, you don't need any RIP software for the D60. The only thing you need is the plugin software WinPlot. It's a plugin for CorelDraw and Illustrator. This plugin you can download from homepage of summa: www.summa.be (Support - Software for Cutters). Summa Cutter Tools is a software for changing properties of your cutter via this software.
cheers

Hi, thanks for your reply.

I've already got the WinPlot software.

My problem is that you would have to manually print each designs which is very time consuming. Or am I missing something?

On Versaworks you could load up as many designs at once and choose how many to print and also change the orientation of the design so that it fits the media paper in order to save paper

To save paper is not the problem.
You work with Corel. So you put the pictures or designs with the contour as closely as possible together. (The contour lines must be in another working layer!)
Mark all designs and click on the plugin button of summa in corel to build the registration marks, then print the designs with the registratin marks layer but WITHOUT the contour layer (hide this layer!)
Then you need to hide the design layer and anable only the contour layer. Click again the summa plugin button for send to cutter.
WinPlot will open and you see the contour lines. You only need to press the button cut and the cutter will begin.
cheers
