Newbie here. Just picked up a cg 130fx. What software do I need?
I just picked up a Mimaki CG 130fx. It is the first generation. I have run all the tests available on the actual machine and it seems to be in good working order. I downloaded the drivers from the Mimaki site. What is the minimum requirement for soft ware to actually cut with this thing?
I have zero experience with these kinds of cutters though I have plenty of experience with laser cutters, ink scape, 3d printers etc.
I don't need a technical guide I am just having a hard time understanding which software will work with this machine.
Do I need a dongle or is that just software
Is this a proprietary machine? do I have to buy mimaki modded software to make it run
Is there something open source I can download?
I don't need the biggest or best I just want to test the machine and have something to learn on. A 500 dollar software suite is kind of a deal breaker.
Thanks for any insights.
