Here I try to description the cutting with plotter Roland ColorCAMM PC-50 from a software Corel Draw.
A plotter is instaled in a computer as usual printer.|
First important setting is size of cutting area.
Set width to maximal value (enter value 500mm and it will be correct to max. value automatical). This value will be about 475mm.
Set length to 1000mm (it is sufficient for usual work), only when you need bigger area, you should set bigger value - max. is about 2200mm.
Next picture shows cutting properties.|
Set "What to cut" to "by Line Type" and "Line Type" to "solid".
You should set the cutting speed to. The max. speed is 40cm/s. Change this speed, only in case when ocure problem with cutting.
Last important tab is about Output option. Check the box cutting.|
Only when you will print, check the box printing. Than all next setting is asociate with printing cartridges.
Here I show DIP switch setting on my plotter
- each DIP switch I've tested and found an optimal setting
OK. From plotter setting follows that plotter will be cutting by line type.|
Click to objects you want cut by right button and select Properties ....
... and in the outline tab set:|
Outline type - to solid, outline color - to black (!), and outline thicknes to minimum (it will be nonequal for each corel version - for example in corel 9.0 it is 0.004 but in corel 8.0 it is 0.001).
