Hi all, nice to find the community :) !

I am trying to see if i can run a RedSail RS720C vinyl plotter-cutter in LinuxCNC.
I am supposed to post the doubts and results in PlasmaCutters category right ?

Hoping to spend some nice times here !

What type of connector does it use to communicate with the PC ?

I know I've seen posts on the forum referring to questions about setting up a drag knife cutter before. (You may need to search further back in time than the site's default of 1 year.) As to the success of those individuals final results I can not say.

I'm sure at the lowest level Linuxcnc could control that machine. But you could run into issues trying to interface with existing hardware depending on what it is.

I think that Gcodetools for Inkscape can output an angle for a rotating knife.
I guess a true drag-knife will self-orient, within limits.

hi all :)

Yes, its a drag-Knife cutter.
It has both USB and RS232 connector.
I will try to find out the motherboard, chip and motor details too.
Will be updating the progress here..
