Hi all, I wonder if any of you can help.

I have recently purchased a creation ct630 as an upgrade from a smaller cutter we had.

On first trying to set it up it just would not work at all and I was being presented with black squares on the control panel. I found this was due to the blade holder pressing in the little red button on the inside of the cutter. (with the control panel to the right handside the blade holder was along to the left) it didn't matter what I did as soon as resetting the machine it would do it again.

To solve this I moved the blade all the way along to the right hand side (underneath the control panel) but now the machine cuts the wrong direction and in reverse! I have tried cutting in both signgo and signblazer and the same thing happens.

Can anyone shed any light on this? I have contacted the person I bought this off and I am waiting on a response however thought someone on here may be able to assist me sooner.

Thank you in advance.

The PCUT machines have those buttons on either side of the carriage, that when pressed or the blade holder runs into it, the entire machine locks up or resets.

If your machine would not stop doing that and you had to physically move the head to get it to stop, then I would think that there is something wrong with the machine. That would be my first thought.

As for the machine now cutting in reverse, I have not ever seen that.

I would wait and hopefully the person you purchased it from can help you out.

Good luck.

Hi,

did you ever fix the cutting in reverse problem?

I have exactly the same issue.

I was using USB but always got a software error at the end of a job. So I changed to serial.
If I use the CT630dmpl driver it cuts 90 rotated (i.e across the media instead of along)
If I use the CT630 driver it stops cutting like it has a flow control problem (but I've tried loads of settings)

If I use the Kingcut pcut 630 driver it cuts mirror image. (It's not a Kingut machine but it's the only driver that nearly works)

Hi
I'm using Flexi V8.

Yes i can compensate by mirroring in Prod Manager but the whole thing is running backwards for some reason. i.e the cutter starts on the left and works to the right.

If I use the DMPL driver the output is rotated 90 deg so cuts accross the media when the software is telling it to cut along.

If I use the CT630 driver, it cuts OK but hangs in the middle of a job, like it's got flow control problems, but I'm using the same setting that work with the other drivers (for flow control anyway) and I've tried loads of others.

arggghhhh

I have heard of these types of plotters shipping with incorrect or malfuctioning control boards. Only heard, as I have not experienced it myself.

mmmm.
It's ok in that respect on USB connection. (Except flexi always has a software error on job completion)

Suppose it could be a board fault as you say though.

Hi I am having the exact same problem.. HOWEVER
I had been using flexi and ct630 for over a year with no problems. Today I had to reinstall windows and everything else for that matter.

My plotter now cuts left to right... reverse of what it did before the reinstall.. and mirrored... I can deal with it but there is a setting I have changed in the past!

So when you say it cuts in reverse, do you mean the cut is mirrored the opersite way to how it should. i.e if you were cutting the word CUT, would it TUC? If so, does the mirror option in the software NOT WORK then? or are you saying that the cut is cutting the image or text in the left side of the cutter when you have configured the software on the right??

I'm using Flexi 8 and have figured out a number of issues I've had, I may be able to help but if I'm honest.. I didn't see the full picture of what you were saying

Maybe you could take a screen shot of the configeration settings and upload them, either myself or another member of the forum might be quicker to spot the fault, but to me it sounds like a configuration setting that needs changing.
