Emulation and Plotter Language (affects all cutters)
Emulation (plotter language) is a communications setting between the cutter and the Software and is easy to change in the Vinyl Spooler.

First make sure the cutter is switched on, has vinyl loaded and ready to cut a test file.

You can open the Vinyl Spooler from the File (menu) > Cut/Plot > Vinyl Spooler.

In the Vinyl Spooler, click on the: 

  • Cutter (menu) > Configure Cutter.
  • In the Device Settings window that comes up, click on Edit (menu) > Advanced
  • Next, in the left-side panel click Commands > Device Language.
  • You will now see a drop down selector inline with Device Language.
  • In this selector you will a number of plotter languages. Most cutters use HPGL or DMPL or a variation of these.

Refer to the cutter's manual or LCD menu for the emulation your cutter uses.

  • You can select a different emulation and click Accept and attempt a test cut file from the Repeat folder on the left side in the Vinyl Spooler.

Note: using trial-by-error will usually find the correct emulation.
