since Z3200 has the worst blade in the world, what is the best way to cut the canvas after printing?
I'm just using a pair of scissors to trim it off but feels like so un-convenient.

I don't think there's any magic to this. The old "cut with scissors" trick is what I use on both my Canon printers with canvas.

I use a razor running in the gap between the metal front panel and the plastic surface from where the printed canvas emerges.   Not its intended use, I'm sure, but it works great.

I use a utility knife that has a hook blade that I think may be used for something to do with sheet rocking. It works better than anything else I have used.

Neil, why on earth are you doing this on your iPF8300? The rotary cutter was designed to cut through canvas.

When I first loaded BC Lyve into the 8300, I remember if it was the default media selection or when I did the custom media type, the printer specifically said the media was too thick to cut with the built-in cutter.

That's surprising, Neil. The 8300 can cut through all canvas that I have ever seen.

The 8300 does just fine with BC Lyve and makes a nice clean cut - no need to cut by hand any more, thank goodness...

Neil, my 8300 also cuts Lyve like a hot knife thru butter.  No problemo.

To the OP, Aaron, I'm sorry -- I have no experience with the Z3200.

Hi,
I cut using the slot in the front that unbelievably is not meant for the purpose (should have been done right to begin with IMO), and it's safe (no wires under there to worry about).

There is also a channel on the backside that works pretty well also, but that one works best for getting a straight cut off the end of a roll before you feed it.

BTW, I'm assuming Z3100 (my printer) is the same design as your Z3200.

So long for now, TOM
