Creating the registration marks.

The registration marks can be added into the arts board of the design application software. It can be selected from 10 patterns according to the design object size and the precision of axis alignment in the Print & Cut applications.

Tiling (split the object)

The cutting object can be split into smaller tiles. When the object needs to be placed to the surface made by multiple panels or is larger than the width of the media, the object can be split to size for fit it.

Matrix copy

It is used for creating multiple copies of the same object. The object is copied in specified matrix condition.

Weed lines and border

The border line and weeding lines can be added around the cutting object automatically and then it is cut. It makes easier to remove the excess material from the media.

Tool assignment

Graphtec Studio 2 is able to assign the tool condition to the each color or the layer. The settings of tool condition as force, speed, quality (acceleration) and others can be set for the each color or the layer. It can be performed in a single job by process of different types.

Offline operation using the USB flash memory

Plot data is created from the design by using Graphtec Studio 2, then it is saved to USB flash memory. The plot data file can be selected from the USB on the plotter, then cutting is performed. This simplified work-flow enables users to operate without a computer.
* The USB flash memory format only supports FAT32.
Please note that NTFS and exFAT are not supported.

Data management using barcode with USB flash memory

In Print & cut operation, the plot data is automatically selected from USB flash memory by scanning the barcode printed on the media. Barcode is created by using Graphtec Studio 2. This prevents the usage of incorrect data, and improves work efficiency.
* The USB flash memory format only supports FAT32.
Please note that NTFS and exFAT are not supported.

Copy of data with registration marks

After data is sent the first time, it can be copied multiple times without a PC.

In the FC9000 / CE7000 / FCX2000 / FCX4000, the first four marks are scanned on the first sheet, and only the first mark in subsequent sheets. Graphtec Studio 2 is able to configure FCX2000 / FCX4000 to execute copy in this condition. This improves productivity by shorting scan detection time.

Lines pattern

It can set configuration of line intuitively to plot such as style, width, corner, color, join, end cap, and position.

Combine objects

It can edit the overlapped objects using the effects function into a single object or multiple objects.


The imported bitmap (raster) images is able to be converted into vector objects. There is a powerful noise reduction function.
