Fc9000 review... somebody please, anyone

The FC8600 is a good machine. It can do the jobs that you need to do on it. You should get one soon because Graphtec has stopped making the FC8600 and switched over to the FC9000. But FexiSign will not add drivers for the FC9000 to older versions of Flexi, and Graphtec Studio Pro Plus does not have a RIP engine.
You can't add any printers to the production manager. Now you will need to subscribe to the very expensive cloud version of Flexi or find a used FC8600. This might make Graphtec go out of business. That's too bad! I was looking to buy new equipment from them.
