Re: Summa DC4 Training

Thank you for responding. I do understand that 90% of it is file prep. I am running FlexiSignPro 8.6. I have had Flexi since 94 when it was 4.0. I do have a few issues with the Summa DC4. One of the reasons I did buy this machine over others is that I have a Summa D-610 cutter I purchased new in 94 ...

Summa Communicating with a Mac

Is anyone out there running a Summa DC-4 on a Mac? I am currently designing my Flexi files on my Mac and then any print files I transfer to the PC and print thru Production Manager on it. I would really like to use the Mac exclusively for designing, cutting on my Summa D610, and printing to the DC-4...

Re: Pricing Guide for Summa Printers

Thanks, Muts! I'm using FlexiSignPro version 8.5.2. Kept timing out on the mac (which is what I'd really prefer to send from) but Scanvec Amiable sent my the same version for the pc. So now at least the printer and computer communicate and I'm at least able to print now. Still having issues with the...

Pricing Guide for Summa Printers

I was wondering if anyone out there (Muts, by chance) had a price per sq.ft. calculation on printed images per sq.ft. Summa supplied vinyl (white & clear) Spot colors by sq.ft. - one color, then 2,3 and so on. - Then price per sq.ft. on CMY & CMYK on same vinyl. - What about a 4 color process pictur...

Re: New Summa DC-4 owner needs input

Hey Muts, Watchdaride & Zlmarl ! Thanks for all your input. I will certainly check out the recommended viewtopics and Muts, I'd love the flexi palette you've got. As far as work goes, just the standard, vehicles, signboards, window graphics and others. I was planning on laminating any kind of vehicl...
