What is the life of a blade?
Basically, the knife shipped with a GCC cutting plotter has a 5 mile cutting lifespan. However, it varies depending on different applications. Therefore, it is encouraged to use the Cut Test function to verify the sharpness of the blade and to choose an appropriate cutting force. The Cut Test procedure will not only provide you with a means of selecting a proper tool force, prolonging the knife's lifespan, but will also assist you in checking if you have chosen the right settings (offset for instance) to ensure output quality.

Basically, GCC SignPal cutters accept HPGL commands from your computer. The HPGL command language is a widely used graphical language. It is not affected by your operating system. However, the cutting software that you use may have a compatibility issue if it was developed before Windows XP. Sign makers should check with their cutting software supplier for upgraded software in order to resolve any compatibility problems.
