    Need more info to help you.......

    What are you printing with?
    Are you printing registration marks when you print?
    Do you know what "THAT ARMS" thing is for?
    What have you tried thus far?
    What are those results?

    LXi is basically the lower end version of Flexi, designed spefically for cutters. So no, you will not be able to contour cut using LXi. There is, however, a work around if you have the right software. Graphtec has plugins for CorelDraw and Adobe Illustrator. You can contour cut using either plugin, I believe. Check the graphtec site for the manuals on how to install the plugins and how to do the contour cutting - it should have manuals for both of them there I think.

    Texas Bob is correct. LXI is not designed to support digital print applications. The simplest way to do this is to use FlexiPro which drives Graphtec's automatic ARMS system.
    The sales consultant from whom you purchased your plotterr packages should have recommended this if he or she knew you planned to use the plotter to do contour cutting. I appologize for any inconvenience this has caused you.

    Please give us a call so we can get you the software you need to do this efficiently.
