    Recently purchased a VJ 1324 Large format printer. Wanted to know if there was a way I could contour cut
    on my Graphtec Ce6000 60 cutter. It appears my flexi SAI only supports Ce7000 cutter. I have tried manually
    cut with a bombsight but I am off about 1mm on my cut. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Should be several ways to do it.
    If you design outside of Flexi you can use Graphtec's Cutting Master plug-in from Corel or Illustrator.
    Cutting Master 4 seems to be made by SAI and looks like the production manager - might work with your native FS files (haven't tried it). I'm using the earlier Cutting Master 3 plug-in with Illustrator/Corel Printed through Flexi12 to a VJ1624 then contour cut on a CE6000-120. Works fine.
    Graphtec has some stand alone programs that may also do what you need. I have not had the need to try them yet.

    Wayne: tried it, no success, the FS file from Flexi (12) would not open in either Corel or Cutting Master 3. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks.

    In Flexi set up your Graphtec Ce6000 60 cutter as a print and cut.
    I design in Corel and export my print/cut files to my RIP as an EPS. With Flexi you should be able to print and cut or just cut to your CE 6000 60 cutter. Does your CE 6000 have an optic for print and cut. I print from a VJ1204 and cut on a CE 3000 Mk2.

    Jackpine:
    Problem having is the VJ 1324 does not support my cutter. It only supports Mutoh value jet cutters.
    I can bring my Corel image as a PDF to both Mutoh and Master cutter three, but I print on the Mutoh and
    place in Graphtec 6000 for cutting and the ARMs did not recognize the registration mark.
    Did a manual bombsight which came within 1 mm of the cut.
    So trying to find a work around. Thanks.

    Did you get this sorted out?
    If not you can go to the Graphtec site and download
    Graphtec Pro Studio free ( just need some basic info and serial number from the plotter).
    Graphtec America - FAQs & Video - Software Video FAQs - Cutting Master 4
    Looks like it is the stripped down cutting end of Felxisign 12 from SAi.
    The CE6000 is supported and you can load & cut your FS, PD, EPS & AI files.
    I gave it a quick test and it seems to work about as well as any other Flexi product.

    Went to the software download and downloaded both cutting master 4 and Graphtec Pro Studio,
    but it showed it was for the cutter plotter as a FC 8600 series. Will run and see if it works. Thanks.
