Re: Illustrator and SCAL

When I save an SVG file in Illustrator, I get an SVG options box. For Fonts:Subsetting, I choose None, (Use System Fonts). For Images:Location, I choose Embed. I uncheck the Preserve Illustrator Editing Capabilities box. Hope this helps.

Re: Corner Borders

There may be too many items on one page. Open the item in Inkscape and cut, paste and save as individual pages of artwork. I hope this works.

Cutter, Speed and Pressure settings!

I am new to Cricut and I have only cut 4 or 5 things. My biggest challenge is figuring out all the settings for different materials. Does anybody have a list that they have accumulated with all the settings they use for cutting? I tried to cut construction paper the other night and it totally didn't...

Re: My first Vinyl Cut!

My first vinyl cut was a success.
I used a Pressure of 2, Speed of 2 and the Cutter set at 2. I cut out 2 sets of Purple Flames in Vinyl for my Brother's Bright Yellow Golf Cart. We used the clear contact paper method of transferring the vinyl and it worked great.

Re: New Expression and Can't Update Firmware!

Why do you have Explorer open? That's a browser. You update your firmware from the DS program. Under the Help tab at the top is Update Firmware. Hope this helps.

My first Vinyl Cut!

What settings do I use to cut Vinyl? The vinyl with backing is 18mm. The vinyl is 5mm. What number do I set the cutter and what speed and pressure do I set the machine? I am cutting from SCAL. I have an Expression.

Thanks for your help. I am offline now until morning, so TIA.

Re: CDS

Thanks. It's interesting that the newer Cricuts don't come with the new Firmware already installed.

Re: CDS

I just got my Expression last Friday and I haven't really played with the carts yet, just SCAL. I updated my firmware as instructed and I was wondering about two things. 1. With my Firmware updated, will my carts still work? 2. Why do I need a cart in the machine to make a cut with SCAL? My machine ...
