    Hi guys, any tips on how to adjust the cutting calibration on Mimaki CG-SRIII?

    Currently, my cutter is cutting 1/4" off hortizontally when I do a print and cut.

    I have the manual but I don't understand how to do it.

    Thank you.

    Print a cross-hair with crop marks and then print and cut it. Now go into the menu and find Mark Detect. Enter into that menu and then hit enter a few times until you see X Offset and Y Offset. You can adjust those settings to make the cut more accurate. Just remember that Mimaki does things backwards. So the X is actually up and down and Y is left and right. Also, left is positive and right is negative.

    So if you print and cut the cross-hair and the cut is up and to the left of where it should be, you would adjust the X offset and Y offset negatively to move it down and to the right. Rinse and repeat until it's spot on.

    If I may...I'd like to know if anyone has any suggestions on how to calibrate a CG130FX, would it be the same? I'm going to take a look and try it.

    It's done the exact same way on your machine as well. You can also look into the service manual where there are more involved alignments that dial it in more generally but those are harder to explain.

    Yea that manual is written in JapanEnglish so it can be difficult to figure it out sometimes.
