    Does anyone have any recommendations for settings (pressure, speed, etc) on materials using the CG-FX Mimaki plotters?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    I set the force to 30 for unlaminated 3651 prints, but 110 for laminated prints. I think my laminate is 3 mil, but I'm not sure.

    No worries...didn't think you were being an arsehole at all.

    And I saw those settings in the book but I thought those were just examples of how to set different settings...not the actual starting points in general? I appreciate the help and will try it out.

    Thanks,

    Chris
