"For some time now, we have been working diligently behind the scenes with our hardware manufacturer and our software developer to improve our print & cut method by implementing a 3 point registration system for the Gazelle. This involves improvements to both the software and the machine.
It was our intent to announce and release these changes for the upcoming Christmas season with the NEXT shipment of Gazelles. However, to our big surprise the manufacturer implemented the updated improvement to the Gazelles in THIS shipment . This means that those of you who have received new Gazelles from the latest shipment, now already have the updated machines!
The software developer is working steadily to finish the updated software.
We do not have an exact date for the release, but we will keep you informed as the information becomes available to us. We are hoping it will be in the next week or two.
The only change to the Gazelle is the functioning of the laser. The laser applies only to doing print & cuts. While waiting for the software update, you will not be able to use the laser for print & cuts, however everything else is fully functional. With the updated software, your print & cuts will be easier and more accurate than ever before!!
We share your disappointment with having to wait for print & cuts, but we are also very eager and excited for the huge improvements occurring and hope you are too!!
The existing Gazelle owners who received their cutter BEFORE this batch are NOT being left behind!! You will also be able to upgrade your cutter. This part is not yet finalized, but it IS coming!! Please be patient, and we will share the info when we know the exacts of it. We do not expect the wait to be long."
Can you say "HURRAY!" I have been waiting for this for a long time. I have never been able to get good Print N Cuts with my Gazelle. That's why I was soooo happy when I won my Silhouette SD. Now granted I don't do a lot of those but I love to have the ability when I need or want to.
TerriM at the forum said the wait shouldn't be too long. I just hope I have the patience to sit back and wait. If any of you are looking into getting a new machine, the Gazelle is definitely one to check out. More information can be found at the official Boss Kut website. This baby will cut through anything I throw at it and with the ability to use Make the Cut, it is a Win-Win situation. Now, I have to go bug Andy to remake the plug-in to include this feature. ^__^
