Re: Summa DC3 For sale on eBay

I guess I'm not getting the whole picture.
Coraldraw X3 to design, send to winplot to set cut path???? Is that Correct?
Then to color Control to rip, then on to the DC3.
I'm still doing something wrong, HELP!

Re: Summa DC3 For sale on eBay

WHEN I EXPORT AN EPS FILE FROM WINSIGN IT WON'T TRANSFER THE WHOLE FILE.
I THINK IT MIGHT BE AN OLDER EPS VERSION I DON'T KNOW.
I INVESTED SOME MONEY AND GOT CORELDRAW X4, I JUST NEED TO PLAY WITH IT AWHILE TO LEARN IT.
