Well, Graphtec answered my question, so I'll post the solution here in case it helps someone.
When I set up my new Graphtec, and tried to cut from Illustrator with Cutting Master 2, I kept getting "HPGL error 1."
All I had to do was change cutting modes. To do so:
Load vinyl, press enter for Roll 1. After it sizes the media press pause, then Previous until you reach "Command." Press Enter. Press down to select GPGL. Make sure the next setting is Step: 254. Press Enter. Finally, press Pause to exit setup.
I have had my Robo Pro for a couple weeks now, been on these forums a lot, and couldn't make it cut. It would read the first reg mark, then move like 2 inches, not find another and error out. I was getting "Mark Read Error". Figured i would try what you did for the hell of it (i would try anything at this point) and BAM worked right after that.
I would have never found that setting. I really have no idea what i am doing either, but now it cuts...
None of this would happen if the guys at Graphtec would be smart enough to set it to GPGL by default. I don't agree on the manual being a nightmare though.
I'd downloaded it before I received my cutter and spent some time reading. When my cutter arrived I had it up and running in 5 minutes.
