Paper cutting machines, industrial plotters revised the world of scrapbooking, manufacturing signs and other applications for graphic design for consumers. Instead of buying components such as stickers, letters, stamps and shapes, Plotters for cutting paper allows you to create your own components for use on signs, albums for photographs, photographs and other applications.
How they work
GCC AR paper plotters, as a rule, work in the same way as ordinary graphic incisors, only on a smaller scale: you enter a computerized image into the machine, and the machine’s hard disk removes the image and cuts it on the attached paper. Cutting machines work similarly to printers, but instead of printing images with ink or laser, they use a micro blade to cut the image on paper and make accurate cuts.
Cricut and Silhouette are two common brands of Plotter for cutting paper. Both at the time of publication are in the price range from 100 to 300 US dollars and offer a number of opportunities. While you can find less well -known brands of cutting plotters and caring presses, the use of better brands, such as Cricut or Silhouette, provides you with the widest set of accessories to further expand the functionality of your machine.
Plotters for cutting paper work in one of two ways. Autonomous machine operates by loading cartridges into a car that acts as an external storage device. Then you use cartridges to transmit information about the form to cutting machine. To get more figures, you need more catrics. Another type of plotter works in combination with your computer. You tie the car to the computer, as if it were a printer, and then use the appropriate software to control the machine for cutting and the formation that it cuts.
Cartridge machines are usually used to connect to computers. For example, Cricut, traditionally based on cartridges, also has a Design Studio software, which allows you to create its own forms by welding existing forms of cartridges. However, Silhouette software, called Silhouette Studio, works more as a graphic editor, such as Photoshop, where you can use saved images and fonts on your computer. You will need Windows XP or higher for any software, and there is software available for both Mac and PC. Before buying, it is recommended to test various cutting plotters, their cartridges and their software.
