PriorityItem or FunctionKNK ForceSkycut CWinner
4
MBlade HolderAdjustable blade tension versus blade exposure due to being a Z axis cutterButton on Top - no springs, smallest Roland-styleDifficult to compare: advantages to both
5
MBlade Holder SeatFully adjustableRestricted to 11.5 mmForce: More tools (such as pens and markers) can be used
6
HTablesFront fold-down tableNoneForce: tables keep mat horizontal: important for heavier materials; I found a suitable box to place behind the Skycut which has served as needed.
7
HControl Panel (CP)BasicHighly functionalSkycut: more settings/options, Repeat and Pause functions
8
HSetting OriginMust be done from softwareMust be done from CPSkycut: easier to do when standing at cutter plus you can use the camera for extremely precise setting, if desired.
9
MCalibrating for PNCMust be done from software - can be confusing to some usersMust be done from CP - automaticSkycut: very easy process and adjustments are done on CP
10
HPerforming PNCReg marks are photographed by camera and automatically identifiedReg marks are photographed by camera and automatically identifiedSkycut: because you can use the camera to set the origin, there are fewer chances of failure
11
HPNC AccuracyVery goodExceptional: superb accuracy across a sheetSkycut: offers ability to add intermediary reg marks for repeated reading on long projects (using PLT export onto a flash drive)
12
MMax Speed750 mm/sec600 mm/secForce: although I've never had an application where I used maximum speed on either cutter
13
MSpeed Settings40 Speed settings13 speed settingsForce: although I've not had any issues with only 13 available on my Skycuts
14
HMax Cutting Force4000 g850 gForce: Although, because the Force is a Z axis cutter, comparing the two cutters is an apples vs oranges situation.
15
MForce Settings670 cutting depth settings160 force settingsAgain, comparing apples to oranges
16
MConnectivityWi-Fi, Ethernet, wireless stand-aloneWi-Fi, stand-alone wireless, true USB, or read PLT files from flash driveSkycut: Wi-Fi is much easier to set up and far more reliable than what Force owners have experienced
