Creating A Plot File

A plot file is a data file containing instructions a cutter can understand. Plot files can be used to exchange outline data between other programs, for troubleshooting and for cutting data on a plotter that supports memory cards.

Wissen programs create plot files using the Cut command. This means you can create a plot file tailored to any cutter. If you want to use a plot file to transfer outlines to another program use the Generic HPGL driver.

To Create a Plot File
  • From the File menu choose Cut or Cut selection. The Cut window appears.
  • Click the Cut tab. Choose the cutter driver required from the Current cutter list.
  • Click the Setup button. The driver options window appears:

    Type a path and filename into the editbox labelled Connect.
  • Click OK.
  • Click the Start button to create the plot file.
