Re: SCAL 4 Training

Select the desired GAP between the original and outline. (Note: save your file before using this last step a...

Re: Weed box

Just to clarify... do you own SCAL PRO and using Effects>Weeding to create the weeding box? If so, then you just increase the setting that's up on the Tool Options bar.

Re: SCAL 4 Print & Cut Question

It's not as straight forward as it is in MTC. But there are ways to accomplish it. First, what is your goal in separating the images? Is it because there are some that you don't want to use at all? If that's the case, then in the Trace Image window, use the crop icon to narrow in on just the part of...

Rudolph Popup Gift Tag

I made 16 of these for a local swap. The paper piecing can be a bit tedious, so I also included PNC options for Rudolph's head on the front.

Re: Rhinestone size cuts too tight

From the SCAL user manual that I'm currently writing...  The circle size selected will need to be larger than the stone size you purchase. As a general rule, select a size three numbers larger than your stones. Thus, if you purchased SS10 stones, then in the rhinestone design window, you would sele...

Re: Help!!! Cutting size is not accurate

First, I'm assuming you are using the W: and H: dimensions shown on the Size & Position Panel in SCAL. Then, if the actual size doens't match the W and the H, then go to Cutter>Cutter Settings and the Resolution can be adjusted for your cutter.

I recommend looking up in the user manual how to get the driver installed. Once your computer recognizes it as a USB device connected to a COM Port, then you should be able to get it working. Did you buy this cutter new? If so, then your GCC dealer should help you with this part. If not, then seek o...
