HELP PLZ! I know...i'm always last minute!


New Member
My apologies, i know i'm always a last minute person, but most times it's cause i give in to these last minute jobs!!

Signlab is my program of choice..however...what i want to do is change the size of the roll. I think right now it's set to about 72" or something like that, but i want to set it to over 8' so that i can cut an 8' decal. WHere do i go to change this.

Also...my plotter is a 36" and i never used to have trouble cutting a 35" decal but lately it cuts off the last inch or, and i dont know why? :( I'm wondering if i changed this setting without knowing, or is my plotter that desperate for a tune-up! Thx!

Just wanted to add..I think i found where it says "media length" which i'm assuming is the size of the roll. It seems to be set at 838" X 36" therefore, if that's the case and that's the right spot then i shouldnt have trouble cutting 8' right??? I'm scared to do a trial because i dont think i want to waste 8' of material and i dont know if it was already set like that before when i've tried cutting stuff that quit at 6'....Ah well...only one way to find out ...right?

Hi Mander, not much help, but my limits seem to be set in length according to the machines limits. Mine is at 999. I remember ioline had a control panel or something similar also.

While in signlab, I can access the cut/plot/device(upper left of page, click box next to your device name)/ page size. Page size tells me what my current settings are, width and length.

I'm not a computer running Signlab right now but from memory you need to go into your "plotting defaults" and set your max plotting defaults (can't remember the exact name) to 36"w x whatever you want. I personally use 50 yard rolls so I set it to 150' or 1,800". That way you can cut whatever length you want whenever you want.
