Anyone using cut2d with egx 300

Hi All, Is anyone using cut2d with an egx 300? I brought the software some time ago but i'm not sure how to use it as we're still stuck back in the dr engrave era. I've played around with it but the whole tool pathing and getting it setup i'm not sure about. If anyone can shed some light on this or ...

Hi All, Any suggestions. Engraving a pet tag using nose cone and 2 passes but some letters/numbers don't engrave all the way through leaving a pinkish colour on the alloy in spots.

Re: EGX 300 windows 7 32 bit issue

Hi Kai, I've just installed windows 7 32 bit via the 2.5drivers and once selected LPT1 for the engraver and installed. When I go to the printer and select the egx 300 settings there is no option to select a USB port for the printer. How do I get these settings to come up? Thanks Mal

EGX 350 vs 300 and also vacuum

Hi All,

Just after some thoughts around whether it worth upgrading from the egx 300 to the egx 350? Any added benefits?

Also wondering what people use for their vacuums for their machines to pick up the plactics, metal etc.,. Just a standard shop vac or found something better? Thanks Mal

Re: egx 350

Hi mrtn, We generally use a carbide cutter for the stainless but have to run contact on the tag to stop ghosting with the nose cone. With the diamond it doesnt get deep enough for what the customer wants even with multiple passes unless there is a wider tool than the standard available.

Re: egx 350

Hi Mrtn, we have a egx 300 (not a 350) so thinking it's not powerful enough. With your customer are they user a cutter or burnishing tool to get some depth into the tag? Thanks Mal

egx 350

Hi All we have a egx 300 and are finding it hard to consistently engrave stainless steel pet tags. Wondering whether the egx 350 would suit better as its a heavier machine with a more powerful motor and spindle speed. We've see a gravograph with a rotary .003 burnishing tool and it seems to get a de...
