There are many many blog posts out there that indicate that running one of US CUTTERS vinyl machines off of a mac is impossible. Well we are here to tell you how we made the USCUTTER MH series cut away being run by a mac.
We had a mid 2010 IMAC that the hard drive finally gave up on. We ordered a hard drive upgrade kit from Amazon by the name of OWC
After installing the upgrade kit we purchased a copy of the Windows 7.
After following all of the steps to get the windows machine functioning of the mac hardware, we connected the US CUTTER MH series with the USB cord. It was too short really to move to far from the computer so we ordered another longer one from here.
We hooked the mac to the mh series us cutter and it loaded the drivers from windows update and bam – It started plotting beautifully. Now we can share the mac and windows design studios and still retain that 27 inch iMac screen,
