Once you have installed SignTools 3, open Corel Draw, click on the Application Launcher (see picture below) and choose SignTools 3.




Next click the Cut button, followed by the Cut Settings button. Select the Roland SC-500 (CUT ONLY) from the Cutter drop down box and select your port.

Please note: If the Roland SC-500 (CUT ONLY) is not listed in the SignTools Cutter drop down click on the Update button in the SignTools Cut Settings dialog.

In CorelDraw's Layout menu select Page Setup. A dialog box will appear. Set Width to 3200mm (126 inches) and Height to 1346mm (53 inches).

Ensure that you are using a Landscape page.

To set this as a default page in Corel DRAW 7 click on the Tools menu and choose Setting for New Documents. Make sure all of the options are ticked and click on the Save Settings Now button.

To set this as a default page in Corel DRAW 8, 9, 10, 11 or 12 click on the Tools menu and choose Options. Click on the word Document on the left hand side and ensure all of the options are ticked and click on the OK button.

To cut any object in Corel Draw, simply place on the page in the bottom left corner. If you wish to cut in a portrait fashion simply rotate your graphics.

Additional note

SignTools 3 cuts from the bottom left of the page either manually place object(s) in the bottom left of the Corel DRAW page or use the "Vinyl Saver" tool with the sliding bar all the way to the left.
