A: With the Graphtec, you need to make sure the step size on the Graphtec cutter matches the step size set in the software in the Cutter Settings.

And when you cycle through the menus on the Graphtec there is also a step size settings, so if it is cutting the wrong size, then they do not match and scales incorrectly.

Q: Why my cutting plotter doesn't work?
A: The most common reason that cutting plotters do not plot the data being sent is that the communication link between the computer and the plotter is not correct for any of the following reasons: (1) the USB driver is not the correct one for the cutting plotter.(2) the correct port has not been assigned in the Plot Manager (e.g. COM1 should be COM2 or LPT2 should be LPT1), (3) If the cutter is in offline mode (which is usually the default after you power it on) it will not cut anything. (4) the language expected by the plotter is not the language the software is sending (e.g. the plotter may be set up for DMPL but the software is sending HPGL). (5) one or more parameters in the advanced section of the plotter driver has been changed from the correct setting, (5) the serial cable is not internally wired per the specs required by the plotter, (6) the parallel or serial port is not configured correctly or the correct driver for the port has not been installed correctly, (7) there is a problem with your cutting plotter.
