Versaworks cut contour lines

Asked by Tyson Shearer on 2020-04-07

I have a Roland BN-20 Printer/Cutter and am working around using Inkscape for the design program rather than Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw. Versaworks 6 is the program that Roland connects to, and Versaworks has cutcontour plugins for the Illustrator and Corel Draw. I have mimicked the cutcontour color (100% magenta) and this did not work. I wrote a .gpl file for Inkscape called CutContour with the 255 0 255 RGB code. I know that does not equal 100% magenta on the CMYK color set. I also tried 236 0 140 RGB which does match 100% magenta. This did not work either. This try I did not name CutContour, hopefully that wasn't the issue. On top of this I tried different (hairline) widths in conjunction with the two cut colors and I tried 0.1 pt, 0.01 pt, .25 pt, and .025 pt. No luck with this either. Has anyone gotten around this problem yet? The previous question and answer on this subject sounded promising but no luck and there was no conclusion.

Thanks!
