Custom cut enables page breaks on lengthy print and cut jobs to improve accuracy.As an example, if your job is say 3mtr and is made up of multiple print & cut images, custom cut enables you to set page break at say 300mm.In this case the printer will print 300mm then retreat for contour cutting before starting the next 300mm until the job is complete.Without custom cut the printer will attempt to print 3mtr before rewinding to contour cut 3mtr – smaller customer cuts improves accuracy and media snagging behind the printer.
