A/I always put 3 horizontal lines (i use the lines on the front of the machine where the vnyl is on) on both sides with a pen before i start printing.
Afterwards when i put the vinyl back in the printer I make sure the lines match, so i am certain that the vinyl is in the same position as it was when starting printing.
Then i positon the cuthead to the mark genereated by the software.
When doing so this has helped me in cutting afterwards.
B/ Only adjust in the job in the ripsoftware from print to cut (do not change any other settings. So do not touch button Get Media Width or any other buttons).
Calibrate using Roland Service Notes for XC-540 (number at bottom: 70031-14), section 4-10 Crop-Cut Adjustment. This is pretty much spot on but when I use the print/cut with crop marks on an actual project the cut is more than 2mm skewed.
Appreciate your reply.
