    Advise NEEDED. Want to use ADOBE CS3 illustr and photoshop etc for sign making. What NOT TOO EXPENSIVE RIP WOULD WORK TO OUTPUT TO A Graphtec CE5000 24" cutter?

    you can use cocut within illustrator for a great combination.
    Plus if you get corel draw you can use cocut with that packages as well

    I've used MagiSign in Illustrator to cut vinyl.

    Pretty cool, just highlight the vector and use an Illustrator looking palette, click "Cut"

    I also have SignCut, which is really inexpensive... but it's a stand alone program, and I like being able to cut in the program I'm working in a piece at a time.

    I have the same machine and I cut from Illustrator (CS3) using the Cutting Master 2 v1.60 plug-in. I just upgraded to CS3 so I downloaded the newest version of Cutting Master from the following link:
    http://www.graphtecamerica.com/support.html

    It was free and it's done everything I need it to. Hope this helps.
