    IS200 'Beep'

    I have experienced two IS200s that don't beep. It's not by any design or setting I know of. The beeper is either broken or disconnected.

    IS200 'Beep'

    There is no control of the beep short of finding the buzzer on the board and sticking blue tack (other brands available) to it. Experiment to taste.

    I will try and update when I know it's all sorted.

    Gravograph Russian

    Never tried but it works with Arabic. It should be OK. If you are able to get a Word document with the Russian in it then copy and paste is sometimes the easiest thing to test.

    Gravostyle gs6 problems

    Been finding this recently. GS 6 used to work on W10 but since the last Microsoft update it has failed. GS6 is not officially supported on W10 so either get W7 PC or upgrade to GS8 for £215. Ben

Currently there are 17 left in stock in France. So if you want one, contact your sales rep or send me a PM. Base RRP: £895 plus V.A.T. Thanks, Ben

    LS100 Error?

    Hi Gunther, In the printer preferences on the last tab press the picture of the laser. At the bottom of the screen maybe two options. Try the other one to the one selected. If you're using gravostyle, remove and readd the machine bit select the other uc board. Ben

    .smb file format?

    Hi Christian, Vectorising can be easy but it can also be complex. Start with a high resolution file in clear colours (black and white makes it easy). Import the image, select it and hit the vectorise button. You can play with the settings here, but normally you don't need to. Click OK or next or the green tick. Then click on the black colour and then the green tick. Hey presto, you have your lines. The SMB files are a proprietary format. If you want to export them to something else, add them to a job, select them, and then use File, Export to save as a different type. You can add symbols by creating your vector however you like, and then select it, then open the symbol library and click Add. (Very simple explanations above. There are lots more things to find out) Ben GV Software Support.
  13. it's an 800mW laser, and some of the times quoted for small marks are really high.
  14. There is still an Ex demo LS100 and an LS900XP on the ex demo price list (as of yesterday) from Gravograph.
