Gary, I just carried out the two experiments and setting from your last two posts.
I think I will try to find another printer cable. Yes you are correct that it does not have USB.
I notice when the Gravograph boots up it says "Boot 2.1" followed by "Version2.5"
I also went into the PC Bios to check the parallel settings. I scrolled through its options but it showed about 6 unrelated options, not ecp.
I dont have a spare cable so it may take a day or tow b4 I post back.
EDIT: Is there any way to avoid having to reload the job each time ?
Tux Plot Version 3.0 is now available at the same website it has speed and feature improvements like nested fills and 4 simultaneous open job ability.
Gary, I'm thinking of bying a used plotter. Is there any special model you think works better with Tux Plot?
I need to cut long vinylstickers (sometimes over 3 m), but only 60 cm width (mostly at 15 cm though).
Is there some reason this thread is in the LinuxCNC (formerly EMC2) forum?
It certainly seems out of place since it doesn't seem to use LinuxCNC.
