Hi,

 

I am using Corel Draw X5 to design vinyl stickers and would like to be able to send the art directly to the printer without using other software such as SignBlazer or Singcut.

 

I own a new USCUTTER MH871 and my software is running off a Windows 7 system. Is it possible to do this?

 

 

Thanks!

 

Don

I don't know this model of cutter, but with other models (such as Graphtec plotters) it's possible to use CorelDRAW as cutting software, instead Flexi or another expensive software. All what you need is to install drivers (as any printer) and change language to GP-GL instead HP-GL (default language of those plotters). I hope this works also on your plotter. Searching on Google, your plotter must include a software called SignBlazer, that you can install and simply open you job on CorelDRAW, and go to File / send to and choose SignBlazer

Hello MadStickerLab; You are asking about printing then you say its a cutter? To send something to a printer you need the drivers for the printer and they usly 

                                    come with it or you could down load it.

                                    For a cutter its a difernt story, you will need a program that is dezined with the drivers for the cutter.

Hi.

I think he means cutter, not printer.
