Mac Sign software for plotters

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

I wanted to share my research about inexpensive sign cutting software for plotter for the Mac since it was not easy to find online. I’ve had a few plotters over the years (including USCutter and Summagraphics) and the software was always painful to use – never as sophisticated as Illustrator. Recently I was looking to update my software and came across these options – I really wanted a simple – even free – “driver” to just export my file from Illustrator but could not find one.

 

Sure Cuts A Lot 4 by CraftEdge

  • Intel Macintosh OSX (10.6 – 10.11)
  • $59.99 (one time fee – not a subscription)
  • Pro version available also
  • iPad version (gets bad reviews however)
  • Interface is not great but much better than most sign making software I have seen. Why can’t these companies just copy Adobe and come up with something clean?
  • Includes  so you can have a useful level of control over your output

WYSIWYG cut mode

SignCut
1_week_box

  • Takes exports via Illustrator plug which is great but does a strange rename on the open illustrator file
  • Bad UI
  • Expensive – subscriptions start at $8/week
  • $149 for 2 years
  • Have to keep subscribing so not a good value over time – especially if you don’t use it much
