Re: Does anyone here use SVG for car decals

Any SVG file that matches what you're wanting to make will work. While there are many different theme categories here, you never know, until you download and open a free file if it's something along the lines of what you want or not. The members here come from many different "worlds"... some do car ...

Re: SCAL5 Pro and Multiple Registration Marks

I don't think it has the ability to utilize intermediate registration, does it? Have you seen a video on it? Does your SB dealer say that it can?

Re: SCAL5 Pro and Multiple Registration Marks

Somehow, I missed your post. The answer is yes and no. I developed a way to add them for printing only from SCAL for those cutters that can do a contour cut process within the cutter itself, if needed... for example, the Skycut cutters. You add the marks, print the project, and then export the files...

Re: 2nd Expression

I'm not an expert on Cricuts, but the first thing I would do is just test it out with a simple shape. I doubt if you can have both Expressions plugged in at once via USB. So, maybe start with a very quick simple shape and verify it works with your original Expressions. Then unplug that one, plug in ...

Re: Cameo 3 Auto Blade Help w/SCAL5

Assuming you definitely still have Autoblade selected in the Cut Settings window, then it's possibly a mechanical issue with the second Cameo 3. Can you take it back home and test it with whatever computer is cutting to your first Cameo 3? Or take your first Cameo 3 to work and test the same file th...

Re: Cameo 3 Auto Blade Help w/SCAL5

It's my understanding AutoBlade functionality is specific to Silhouette Studio and the firmware inside the Cameo 3 and 4. SCAL isn't able to access that functionality thus the blade exposure needs to be manually set.

Re: Knife tool issue

The inside fill color isn't going to make any difference at all in how the tool performs. You can prove that by selecting your shape and change it to white on the Fill & Stroke Panel on the right. Maybe post a link to that particular video and I will watch it and see how the knife was actually used ...

Re: How to fix image after tracing

Pixels only exist in raster graphics and a traced image means it's now a vector so you would need to do node editing instead. A couple of things: (1) Node editing can be tedious. I will do anything to minimize it. lol (2) When tracing, did you "play with" the Contrast setting to optimize the trace? ...

Re: Print + Cut Outline (Contour Cut)

Hopefully this is the manual you're using? https://www.iloveknk.com/0um/SCAL5/SCAL5-User-Manual.pdf I realize it's tough knowing what word or term to enter when searching for a particular answer. So, I'm ALWAYS happy to help readers find which section they need. Just post here at the forum and I'll ...
