so it appears that the maker of master cutters is a ghost company. it is impossible to get any type of support what soever, i searched EVERYWHERE for any information on this master xy 380p. all of the numbers i call are no good and some say that the company went out of business.
i just want to cut the designs i made in illustrator onto vinyl so ican press it onto a shirt but not knowing how to get this plotter going or even finding any drivers is becoming a nightmare. how to set the origin? the pressure? or even what type of software to use. is it possible to cut straight from illustrator? i search for plug ins but nothing supports this plotter and many companies think im making up a fake brand when i ask them about it. please some one help

just from the pictures of the master cutter on thier site, it looks the same cutter(or almost) as USCUTTER low end cutters. They have a series called MC Cutters, I'd call them and see if it's the same hardware with a different name.
Just a guess, that's all

Drivers here but may just work for the SignGo software.

A Google search for:

master xy-380p driver "download"

Returns a fair number of possibilities along with the one I listed.

You need either sign go or win pc sign software with a dongle, not aware of any master plotters being able to cut from Corel or illy.
Setting the origin & pressure is simple with the buttons on the display panel . Up & down arrows set cut speed & left & right set pressure

I use quite a few of these old machines daily. I use flexisign to cut graphics. Needed some help let me know.
thank you very much. i have a question as to what cutting software to use. i noticed that flexisign has all of the bells and whistles and is priced at 1k but all im going to be using the vinyl cutter for is basic cuts of lettering mainly. im not planing to do car wraps or any graphic design with it. is there any software that will do just do cutting?

You might look for a package named Signblazer.

Not sure if it support your cutter but it's free so nothing lost if it doesn't.

Hi, did you get your Master Tiger plotter going?
I bought one from ebay, and am having the same problems you are having.
I already bought Flexi 10, but discover there is no Master Tiger brand plotter in that program.
Any advice?

I have the same problem, anyone still using one of these in 2022, I have the desay master tiger 1000 any advice on driver and software would be greatly appreciated!
great name for a cutter

do you have any drivers at all for this cutter?

if you do, try opening your cutting program in 'compatibility mode' (xp or 7 if it used to work there)

if not download signblazer for free here, it has many drivers you can try out and maybe make work

EDIT: signblazer has 5 desay drivers, start there with the right width for your cutter
