Setting Cutter Driver Options

The Cutter Driver Options allow you to control the parameters of operation of your output device such as cut speed and pressure, or execute common tasks (roll forward, roll backward, go to origin) from your computer.

To access the Cutter Driver Options, click Cutter Options in the Cut tab of the Job Properties dialog.

Make sure nobody is around the output device when sending the macros, since the cutter may move and injure the operator.

Each command has a checkbox to enable or disable it. When enabled, you can change the value, and the command is sent to the output device, overriding the settings in the output device. When the option is unchecked, the settings from the output device are used.
