Mimaki’s exclusive UK and Irish distributor, Hybrid Services has announced a free update for the company’s FineCut plugin software that supports Adobe’s recently released Illustrator CC2018 application on both Mac and PC platforms.


Offering seamless cutting workflow, the FineCut plugin is supplied free of charge with all Mimaki’s pinch roll and flatbed cutting plotters and streamlines the production process, enabling users to work in industry standard software yet with hardware specific options to hand. 


“Mimaki FineCut is a powerful, yet simple to use addition to both Illustrator and CorelDRAW and this update ensures users with the latest version of the Adobe package can integrate the production process,” says Hybrid’s Technical Services manager, Jeff Marsh. “Available to download for free via the Hybrid website, customers will be able to update their existing installation quickly and easily.”


FineCut works alongside Mimaki’s RasterLink RIP package to integrate the design > print > cut process as part of an intuitive workflow. With powerful features such as Mimaki’s unique die cutting process and the newly added ID Cut barcoding function, FineCut is a time-saving and easy to use production tool.
