New vinyl cutter


#1

Hi,
We’ve recently received a new vinyl cutter into the space
it looks like a JK870 cutting plotter

According to Daniel Silverstone: The conditions of loan are basically “If Steve (the owner) wants something cutting, we’ll do it for him”. The wooden box also contains some other cutting heads (different kind to the one fitted) and a picking tool, and the cables

After a bit of googling inkcut might be one option
http://inkcut.sourceforge.net/http://inkcut.sourceforge.net/
Although the source code looks a bit old

Another option might be SK1 / Lincutter
https://sk1project.net/

It seems to be driven by serial port, so we could probably do with hooking a pi zero onto the back

Many Thanks
Richard

Thanks for doing the research. I look forward to seeing us cut some awesome designs.
