MPX not printing over 50mm

Post by cncninja » Tue Oct 18, 2016 4:07 am

Hello I'm very very frustrated my xp laptop died hooked to my MPX60 so i bought a new one, only to find out i need an outdated 32bit operating system. I had a 32bit os installed and got the printer connected and working. now my issue is the 32 bit version of the software now seem to only allow for 50mm printing when the printer can do 80mm. It limits the size by adding a gray border beyond 50mm. this does not happen on the 64bit version of the software. but my 64 bit computer will only run the mpx 70 i own as well so i was going to use the 32 bit for both mach. so even if i put my mpx 70 on the 32bit version its limited to 50mm... this is crazzy... so now i need 2 computers for each mach and cant print bigger then 50mm now... my xp laptop ran both no problems.. now i can even get my 10k investment to work properly.. i called Roland and they where worthless. any ideas why the 32bit version of the software will not let you make a print bigger then 50mm?

please help i need my MPX60 back up its better then the 70

Did you check "Extend print area"?

Hello MRTN, thanks for the reply, i don't see this option. im running the latest software for my printer 1.33 Dr metaza 2 . works fine on the 64 bit version, just not on the 32bit version. Problem lies in i need to use 32bit because there are no 64-bit drivers for my MPX60, just the 70. So i hope i can get the 32bit software working. It works just not past 50mm.

The setting on all MPX machines is to limit it to 50mm x 50mm unless you check the box in the printer driver properties marked Extend Print Area.
Then you can set the print size above 50mm.
