Hello All! I am in the process of setting up a NEW™ computer for the vinyl cutter. The original machine is now the laser cutter computer. If you need to use the vinyl cutter please follow these steps:

  1. Take the computer from the laser cutter.
  2. Place that machine into the digital fabrication room and attach the vinyl cutter.
  3. Use the vinyl cutter.
  4. Return the laser cutter computer back to the laser cutter.

I’ll be marking my process in setting up the new computer in subsequent posts.
