Im looking to finally get a larger plotter. Currently running the graphtec. Its been great. I would replace with the larger graphtec however no suppliers out here.
So had an offer on this summa d120rl. From what ive read on here you are all very pleased with summa. Main thing that worries me is the transition period. Im all setup for the graphtec, illustrator plugin straight to a simple cutting master.
Anyone run their summa straight from illustrator?
Atm i add my contour cutline and onyx and my mutoh do the rest. Automatic reg marks etc.
Very simple to do – in illustrator create & save a library spot colour, with a name such as ‘ContourCut’, this will be your cut path.
In Onyx – CUT server – managed cutters – add your new Summa – then in ‘cut layer option’ add the name of your newly created spot colour (CountourCut). Onyx will now know this is not to be printed, and your cut path, which will auto generate every time you print the job.
So basically the same as Mutoh!
For vinyl cutting, Summa comes with a control program that will load & cut your .ai files.
Any summa users – Does the menu have saved setting options? im sure theres a better way of explaining it i just cant think of the right words. On my graphtec i have 4 different modes which i have setup, i can switch between them as i wish and changes the setting for knife depth, speed etc. Its a great feature and im hoping the summa has the same?
