Hi,

There is no "driver" for Mac OS. There is a plugin for Adobe Illustrator which allows output to the GX-24 which you can download here.

I was able to get the Roland CutStudio plug-in working in illustrator.

However, I can not send the design to the GX-24. I don't know what I am missing, or why the design can not be sent to my GX-24. I am not even sure if the Mac recognizes the GX-24. Please help. THANKS!!!!!

I might be experiencing the same problem here. Downloaded the latest plugin from roland's site for CS3 for Mac (I am running 10.10.2 currently).

Plug in works, the palette shows up in Illustrator CS3, when I hit the button, Cut Studio app opens like usual. When I hit cut, the head on my GX moves to the left edge of the material and stops, doesn't cut at all. Cut Studio app reports "Finished".

Something buggy going on, I need to get some vinyl cut, hah, maybe I will try to bootcamp and use cutter through that, seems broken in 10.10.2.

Fairly sure that I had made some cuts previously in Yosemite but it is no longer working.

Do you get the CutStudioX dialog pop up? If not then make sure you have installed it in the applications folder.

Sounds like the page size is set too large in Illustrator, try reducing it or at least ensure it is not wider than the machines width.

Hi,
i'm having the same problems.
Running Illustrator cc2014 (dutch) on a macbook pro with 10.10.3 installed ( dutch ).
The plugin is visable in illustrator, but not working. No preview, nothing.
It seems that there is no connection with the cutstudio folder. It is on the wright location.
Need help quickly !
Thx. Ludwig

Make sure that in System Preferences you have "allow applications downloaded from - Anywhere" set. If it is not the application can't run as Mac OS will block it.

More information is available here

Hi,
the download is perfect. That is not the problem. The cutstudio palette shows up in Illustrator, no problem. But it does not sho< anything in preview. Strange is also that the help function does not work also. For me the problem is I think, that the cutstudio folder is not seen in application folder ?

Thx for your help. Ludwig
