Nothing cuts when sending design to the cutting machine

Post by craftedge »

If you send your design to your cutting machine, but nothing gets cut or some parts of the design are skipped, please check the following:

1. If you have the "Cut Selection Only" checked, but nothing is currently selected on the mat, then nothing wil be cut. So either go back and select something, or uncheck the Cut Selection Only checkbox.

2. In the Style tab you can set the Cut Line Type. If you have it set to cut, but set the Holder in the cut window to Pen, then nothing will be processed as setting to Pen wil only process objects where the Cut Line Type is set to Draw.

3. The same can happen if you set the Cut Line Type to Draw but set the Holder to Blade. In the case setting the Holder to Blade will only process objects where the Cut Line Type is set to Cut, not Draw.

4. You can override the cut line type by changing the option below to the Holder to process Cut+Draw lines which will force it to process all lines regardless of the Cut Line Type set.
