Hi all,

SignLab has supported the PCut for a while now, though the current support is limited to serial, HPGL and DMPL modes. Providing USB support has been complicated by the variation in PCut machines. For those of you that have a PCut, I would ask your help in providing a snapshot of the USB support that was provided with your PCut.

Send all materials to techwww@cadlink.com and indicate "ATTN: Rod" in the Subject line. If there are any coders out there that would like to be included with the materials that I receive, then please let me know where I can e-mail you.

  1. Now, if your PCut came with a driver install on CD, then did it have a USB device-driver included on the CD?
  2. If the CD includes a USB device driver, then please browse the CD and locate an INF file. Please e-mail the INF file to me. If you need help with this, then please e-mail me.
  3. In addition, if you have installed the USB driver, then please use START MENU >> RUN >> REGEDIT, and then export the USB and/or USBPRINTER sections, located as follows:
>>>>>> ENUM
>>>>>>>>> USB
>>>>> and/or USBPRINTER

Please e-mail the exported registry settings to me.

It seems the driver for PCut is a generic FTDI driver. FTDI makes chips that convert USB to serial COM port. I'll send you some info & files tonight.
