I used the Trotec today and all was well except for one thing - when printing a job from Illustrator, as soon as it was loaded into JobControl, the Trotec started trying to laser cut it straight away.
This is a problem for a few reasons - one is that the material might not have been lined up in the cutter at this point, another is that the material settings in JobControl seem to reset every time you print something new, so usually they’re wrong and have to be set before starting the cut.
To get round this I just cancelled the job, then reset it once I had everything configured.
I meant to have a look at the Preferences to see if there was a way to disable this, but forgot… so be warned. Maybe one of the laser techs knows? @petra
Also, I wondered about cutting acetate, like the sheets used in overhead projectors - is that allowed, and if so does it cut well without warping or melting?
