The SmartMark can be used in Plato or in Automation Engine (BRIX based s&r tasks or in the 'Add SmartMarks' task when used on PDFPLA input files).
The result of the SmartMark will be a cut path for all inks, path will be truncated to the centerline above the first row of labels. In other words, the same result as if one would - in Plato - draw an initial line connecting the top segments of the top row of labels and create a staggered cut path using the option 'Truncate on center'.
The SmartMark has the following options:
Most of the options can also be found in the staggered cut path dialog in Plato - see the Plato documentation for more information.
The left/right gap at plate edge defines how far the staggered cut path is extended towards the left and right plate edges. For instance, a left gap of 10 mm means the staggered cut path will not be extended up to the left side of the plate but it will stay away with a distance of 10 mm.
Once the staggered cut path is created using the specified options, one can apply an extra offset (vertical/horizontal). This offset can be used to cut around eyemarks of cut through glue areas (for instance in the case of shrink sleeves).
