Vinyl Cutter I've never used it

hi, I’ll be in the space tomorrow (Mon) early afternoon. If anyone’s around that knows about the Vinyl Cutter that can have a quick chat to me about it, that’d be great. If not, never mind!!! :wave:t5:

If noone shows up, there’s a nice tutorial in the tools page!

I tried once and gave up. I still don’t get how it works with backing stuff and application film…

The goal is to cut the corners cleanly through the base material but not the backing. You can dial in the pressure with the cutter interface. I would recommend the web ui over connecting directly. A few test cuts usually help.

I should be in so long as nothing pops up with work

I didn’t even know it had a web interface, I thought you had to do something weird with drivers to even connect to it.

Back in February I popped a pi zero of mine in there and wrote a web interface. Shout out to @ovf for the network config. The tool page explains how to use it via browser.
