    I think only the Envision can to back cut with omega. I use this function regularly and it needs left / center registration marks.
    The GSX is not listed, but I bet with some work you can force it... with another cut file.

    With back cut, depending on layout of decals - the front cut and back cut can be slightly off from one another. I know that sounds strange, but my software or cutter ( Omega 6.5 / envision) has read the back cut info first and cut incorrectly.
    But it normally works fantastic and is fun to watch.

    Yes, you can do "cut decals" with the GSX model, you have to flip the vinyl and cut again, my English is very poor to explain it but there is a "Composer Bulletin" where explain as do it.

    Nice! thanks for sharing - I didnt know that.
    The key is creating the backcut on layer two - then reversing or mirroring in GSP plot before sending to GSx.

    thx guys , will definitly get me one once i get the chane for a good deal

    i could get a gerber 1 with software gsx and a lot of cartridges for very cheap, i think i will take this offer... and will be on the look out for a gerber 2....
    the cartridges and the gsx is worth the money already... i also think the gerber should work out for my kind of decals...

    lets see :D

    i have one more question im a lil bit confused about all the gerber cutters...

    gs15 - tangial only?
    gsx15 - swivel only?
    gs15plus - swivel and tangial?
    gsx15plus ?
    hs15 ?
    hs15plus ?

    i know the envision is faster and only has a tangential knife..speed is not so important for me.. i will pass on the envision because its too expensive...
    but what the difference between the other ones i couldnt find much information online?

    The Envision is swivel only and uses a cutting strip instead of a rotating drum. The HS series is no longer manufactured or supported.

    fred is certainly the expert on these things, but i wouldn't pass on an HS series simply because they are no longer supported. as long as the piece of ewuipment is functioning when purchased, jimmy the plotter doctor can supply everything needed.
