Do I need to calibrate my laser for assurance chien each time I do a print and cut? I just tried this feature and it worked fantastic. I mostly cut tag shapes over a printed image. This works better than my Brother SnC. So happy you have added the Zing driver to the software.

Scan2Cut doesn't work on the ZingOrbit. If you describe your particular application, perhaps I can provide you an alternative method.

One option is to scan your stamp or stencil into your computer first and then use it as a print and cut project whereby you print before coloring. That way the registration marks can be added in advance. Even with my older Zing that does have the ability to use Scan2Cut, I find this process easier plus it gives me the ability to resize the project to whatever I want before printing.

The other option, whereby you can use an already-colored project, was developed using a different software but it should work with SCAL as well. I want to test it first, however, to make sure it works. I will add it to my To Do list and hopefully get it working and documented for you and others. I'll need a few days, however, so that I can get some other things handled first. But it IS on my To Do list now. :)
