alter Sekonic SPL-460 Plotter

Hallo zusammen,
ich probiere es noch einmal :) Hier an unserer Schule steht ein alter Sekonic Flachbettplotter vom Typ SPL-460. Ich wuerde das (ehemals) teuere Stueck gerne wieder
nutzen. Nach einigem rumprobieren habe ich ihn mit einem HP Standardtreiber wiederbelebt. Zeichnen scheint soweit ok. Nur wuerde ich auch gerne Folien damit schneiden. Problem... das Messer laueft *viel* zu schnell. Eine niedrigere Geschwindigkeit laesst sich zwar in der config einstellen, aber der Plotter reagiert leider ueberhaupt nicht darauf :( Hat jmd zufaellig eine Loesung fuer mein Problem? Oder existiert irgendwo ein original Treiber dazu (Win 98SE)??? Google hat nix gebracht :(
thanks Joachim

Hi,
My proposition: don't write directly to the plotter, but store the output in a file. Next insert with an editor after each "SPn;" (Select Pen) instruction a "VSy;" where y is the wanted pen (cutter) speed in cm/sec. ex. "VS10" for 10 cm/sec. If the programming of the plotter is HP-GL compatible, the speed of the selected pen will be programmed.
Good luck,
Hugo

Hi,

Nice idea :) I would give it a chance. On the other hand. Didn't the driver do exactly this by itself??? Maybe I will find out this by examing the file with different plot speeds. If it works, this would at least be a solution for me. Not for the pupils or my collegs. Not bad, because I think it's better when only *I* have hands on the foils :) BTW it's the first time that I have to deal with a plotter. Did *every* plotter know about different plot speeds??? Or could it simply be, that my plotter could only use *one* speed?

Thanks :)
