    Hey Guys,

    When I use my GX-24 with a piece of material, everything works great. When I put in a roll and select roll and then go to print, the machine rolls the material to any random spot and then starts cutting. Is there something I am missing to get it to start cutting at the edge of the roll?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Best Regards,

    Jon

    how you connected to plotter?
    and do you have cut driver set up right?

    Operating System XP
    Cutting out of Illustrator CS with plug-in
    Directly connected to Plotter
    Not Sure

    Also, it is working great with a piece of material...just not with a roll.

    Thanks,

    Jon

    I'm using the same setup and it's been working great.

    Try setting the Origin on the unit after you load the roll (press Origin for more than 1 sec).
    Are you using CutStudio and Illustrator? The plugin exports the paths to CutStudio.

    When in CutStudio, go to File -> Cutting Setup and then click Properties, then click the Get From Machine button for the material size, it should resize the work area in CutStudio to the actual size of the material loaded in the machine.

    Use the Move button with your image selected in the work area to move the image down to the origin point. If it's not set against the origin, the plotter will just start cutting wherever it is on the page, if that happens to be an inch up or a foot up.

    I use Edge selection. This cuts everytime at the edge of the material.
    Roll function rolls vinyl out and it is anyones guess where it will cut.
    It is probably a software setting I am overlooking, but as I don't have a
    need for using the roll selection, I haven't investigated it anymore.

    Good Luck
