Machining Video: Install V-Series 2016 Vinyl Cutter as Printer and Cut Directly From Coreldraw and Adobe Illustrator

All our V-Series vinyl cutters can operate as printers in Windows operating system controlled computers.

That means that you can use your CorelDraw and Adobe Illustrator and other vector editors to directly output your artwork to our vinyl cutter.

Okay, a few things before your V-Series vinyl cutter's blade can start ploughing through that nice-looking vinyl. So, let's begin. The USB Driver has to be installed - basic logic.

If you have not installed the driver yet, please do so now. Remember to unplug the vinyl cutter USB cable before starting with the installation. The particular driver file is found inside your Utility Disk. Simply double click on it to install, and follow the directives through.

You will choose your USB Driver file based on the year model of your machine:
1). 2013 Model, Driver Filename: PL2303_Prolific_DriverInstaller.exe
2). 2011, 2012 and 2014, Driver Filename: CH341SerSetup_EN.exe

After successfully installing the driver, do connect the cutting plotter's USB cable to the USB port of the computer. The USB device will be found as COM(X) (no need to change to COM3) from Device Manager. It tells you that the machine is now communicating with the computer, after a successful installation. Next you need to install the V-Series cutter as a PRINTER.

Inside the Utility Disk (CD) you willn find the driver under 'Printer Driver'. When installing the V-Series vinyl cutter as a printer, make certain to choose COM(X): (Serial Port) (the same port of your installed USB driver)

If you use V-Smart 2015 and later model, choose USB00X (X is the maximum number shown).
