Software frequently asked questions:
My letters have lines going through them when I cut from WinCut 3.0 from within CorelDRAW.
Export your CorelDRAW file in an .AI (Adobe Illustrator) format with the following settings in the export options window: version 7 checked on; destination to PC checked on, and; simulate complex filled curves checked off. Doing this only once changes the default .AI export options, and in turn will make the WinCut macro perform correctly. If for any reason the settings in the CorelDRAW .AI export should change in the future, simply redo this procedure.
I connected my SummaCut via USB but the red “active connection” light next to the port won’t stay on.
Unplug USB cable from your cutter. With your computer on, place the Summa Manuals & Drivers disc into your CD drive. (If the Auto Start window displays automatically, close the window) Turn the cutter on. Then reattach the USB cable. Windows will auto-recognize the cutter and start the “Add Remove Hardware” Wizard. Just follow the simple on-screen instructions to complete the plug-and-play USB installation.
When installing my software in Windows XP, I get the warning message “This product has not passed Windows testing.”
Choose “Continue Anyway”. Our software has been tested internally and no Windows XP problems have yet to be reported.
How will I know if new software is available?
New versions of the software can be downloaded from the Support section of this Web site.
Why does my speed and pressure change when I send a job to the cutter?
Many sign and cutting programs can include speed and pressure settings in the plot data. That will override the current settings in the cutter. You can either disable the speed and pressure settings in your software, or simply be sure that the speed and pressure setting being sent by your software are the same as the settings you wish to use for that specific job.
