    We use a Summa and Winplot to contour cut and it works a treat.
    What problem are you having?
    Have you read the manual?

    Create an Illo file with print data on one layer, and cut data on another.
    Place the rego marks.
    Print the print layer with the rego marks, then send the cut data with rego marks to the cutter.
    If you change opos style in the cutter to opos xy it will also compensate for bowing, although that shouldn't be a problem with a solvent printer.
