Silhouette Sync-Gate 2024: How to Stop the Library Syncing Errors (A Month In...and Counting)

If you've tried to use Silhouette Studio in the last month it's almost impossible that you did not notice Silhouette library syncing errors. 


A mid-May website, Design Store, user account and server migration has caused what I'm now dubbing Silhouette Sync Gate 2024. Libraries aren't syncing. Design Store Orders - including subscriptions and credits - aren't syncing. Software upgrades aren't syncing.  I think the name is appropriate.  

In this tutorial I'm going to show you how to do everything in your power to stop the Silhouette library sync errors and in the rest of the Sync-Gate series I'll show you how to protect your designs, create your own organized and easy to access library, and avoid so much dependency on Silhouette servers.

How to Send Files from Mac Directly to Roland Versaworks (BN, BN2, BY-20)

Did you know you can easily send print and cut ready files directly from your MAC to Roland Versaworks - the PC only RIP that runs the Roland printers including the BN2, BN-20A and BY-20. 

This is literally a game changer for Mac users who are not comfortable or proficient on a PC but struggle through for the sake of using the 20" print and cut combo machine.

Sawgrass Sublimation Printer Printing Lines? Here's the Fix

If you're wondering why your Sawgrass SG400, SG500, SG800 or SG1000 Sublimation Printer is printing horizontal lines through your prints it could very well be because you are bypassing the Sawgrass Print Manger.

Horizontal lines in sublimation printing is a common complaint from Silhouette users who work on a MAC ... especially those who print directly from Silhouette Studio to their Sawgrass sublimation printer. To avoid these lines and get better, more vibrant prints, take the extra step of using the print manager.
