Re: Export as Svg

RobinV
 

Thanks so much! I will give it a try. I thought I had done it before with no problem. Hopefully they fix that bug soon.


Re: Export as Svg

The design is probably there. In the program (InVue or Inspiration Studio) go to Edit -> Select All


Then look at the dimensions. If it's tiny, you'll want to enlarge it. If it's so large that it obscures the mat, decrease the size. Make sure aspect ratio is clicked on in InVue. Using the transform ->Width or transform -> Height in Inspiration Studio will maintain the aspect ratio.


Then use the position function to move the design to the mat (0,0  or center on mat, etc)..


If, after resizing and moving to the mat, the design still cannot be seen I would change the line color - just in case the lines exported as white or transparent.


If nothing is wrong with the file you should be able to see the design at this point.

Re: Export as Svg

Before exporting to Invue, I select all. With Gold lock icon selected at the top of the screen, I type in 80% in H box and press Enter. Then Ctrl+Shift+S to export as SVG. The latest InVue update has a bug that has been reported that I assume will be fixed soon. SVG imports were working properly before the latest software update, but now the sizing of all pieces may not be correct. Some pieces are coming in so large that you may not see them on the InVue screen. Once in InVue, select all (Ctrl+A) and resize to what the measurements were in MTC. If you still don't see the cutting lines, change the line color to black. It may be that the lines do not have a color and changing them to black will allow you to see them. 

It may help for you to send the troublesome SVG file to Pazzles support so their software developer will have more to work with in resolving the SVG import issues.

I have a Pazzles Vue. I designed something in MTC and exported as a Svg. When I import into InVue or Inspiration software the file is blank.  Yes I clicked on my image and selected it before exporting. Anyone know why I can't see it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: MTC software question.....

Julie Flanagan
 

Any design that you can open or import into Make The Cut or download from the 11,800+ user contributed cutting files in the MTC Gallery may be selected (Ctrl+A), record the height and width of the selection,  and exported as SVG (Ctrl+Shift+S). The SVG files may be imported into Design Space for cutting to the Explore using the Vector Upload option. You will need to resize the design once in Design Space to the same size it was in Make The Cut. If there are score lines in the any of the shapes, In Design Space, be sure to select the shape and score line, right click  , and select Attach before going to cut.

I purchased MTC years ago prior to Provo Craft’s suit but only used it a couple of times and then I switched from PC to a Mac several years ago. I just transferred to my MTC to my Mac hoping it was possible to do this (really did’t want to add Paralells) Would you share the link to the best video that teaches how to create SVG’s in MTC that can be exported/imported into CDS for the Explore? Much appreciated.

You could change a line to dashes and have pens draw the dashed line. If you want the dashed lines to print, then you can create a single dash to your specifications using a square from basic shapes. I changed the size of my square to .2" wide by .01" high and pressed enter. I created my shape and added an inset shadow, hid the original shape, and used Wrap object to path and wrapped the dash to the inset shadow line. Then deleted the inset shadow so that only the dashes remained. Since these lines are thicker, they show up better in print preview and print a bit darker.  To wrap object to path, select the dash, hold the shift key, and drag the dash over the inset shape. Increase the number and adjust the spacing as desired, then apply. This would work with any shape in Make The Cut.

I have searched high and low to find a method of printing a dashed line around an object on MTC. Here is an example of what I am trying to do. Under A Cherry Tree: I'm Hog Wild about you! ♥ This was done in the Silhouette program. My daughter has a Silhouette and she told me she is able to show just the outline around a shape by making a shadow with a colored dashed outline and the rest of the shadow transparent. I don't see that option in MTC. If I make the shape white, the outline is also white. I tried using the print option "print wireframe only" but then of course I can't print the shape that I want an outline around at the same time. I have been doing it through Adobe Illustrated but it's complicated. Any suggestions?

Unfortunately due to Provo Craft suing all third party software manufacturers there is no other software out there that can be used with their machines. However the good news is that while you can not cut with the MTC software and your new Explore you can use MTC to design, trace, and create SVG files and then export them from MTC and use the files you created in your cricut explore. Since the explore can import SVG files you can use outside software for creating as long as it will allow you to save or export files in the SVG format. MTC, SCAL, and Inkscape are popular one that do that. Inkscape is free but NOT user friendly MTC and SCAL are not free but very user friendly. You can download the free trials and see how you like them. However, you will not be able to save files as SVG format while you are running them in trial mode.

Sometimes major projects take a bit longer than we had anticipated. The kit is not yet posted, but keep watching for it. Looks like fun. When I set up my files to cut a number at the same time, and put them together assembly line style, it actually goes quite smoothly. And the results of your labor are so stunning. People think you worked days on them!

Re: Blade Holders on Clearance

Stephanie E
 

Thanks for the info about this, Julie. My order arrived today. I was a bit concerned because the description of the blade holders in the invoice just said "deep cut blades" (ie, nothing about the holder). All is great - I got 3 holders along with a bunch of sale priced embossing folders.

I did find that another blade holder I have will fit (& work in) the Vue.  Last weekend I tried a Graphtec type holder that takes roland blades (no springs to worry about). I had bought it for my Cameo a couple of years ago. I'm used to having unlimited blade depths - as opposed to the click holder - so I was thrilled to find that this blade holder would work with the Vue.

I felt that the blade holder that came with my Vue was defective, so having 3 replacements PLUS my old Graphtec holder makes me happy :)
