Re: Setting up a notification?

Howdy.

There’s a software for sending e-mail notifications (OnSupport) but it’s for newer printers only, SPi was before the time.

Re: EGX 350 vs 300 and also vacuum

Yes, worth the upgrade.

Re: Can't load any media profiles

Yea, you don't need to enable updates right now. 5.51 is fine.

Again, next time you need to do this avoid 4.x installers. Install from a 5.x package.

Re: Cutting problems with GS24

The strange thing is, this only happens when I am cutting black garment vinyl, not with other colours. This is probably caused by the specific physics of this media.
