Roll Cutter - Connect Summa Cutter Without Network Connection to a Network

Modified on Wed, 3 Jul at 3:32 PM

To use the machine from a network, you can use a print server supporting the RAW protocol.
In this case, the USB class of the cutter has to be configured to emulate a printer.

The machine USB class needs to be set to Printer UNI or Printer BIDI in order for the USB port to emulate a printer USB port. This option is usually used for sharing the cutter over a network using a print server, or to drive the machine from a Windows printer driver (Generic/Text only). Using one of those options, it is not possible to query information from the cutter, e.g. the software cannot read the media size from the cutter.

Attached, you find the procedure to change the USB class on an old S Class 1 or SummaCut.
