Julie, 
Thanks again. I sent a contribution using my  cb-designs.com PayPal account. I still have my PCS registration too so I will soon be all set again.

Those who contribute to the group will receive download links for the trial versions of MTC, PCS, All plugins for MTC, and Cricut Design Studio. You will need your registration keys for MTC versions and PCS. You can use Cricut Design Studio without registering to update your Legacy Cricut machines if you need to do that. Links for downloading many of the files in the MTC Gallery and PCS Gallery are included.  

Unfortunately, if you never purchased PCS, you can use the trial version, but will be unable to render to SVG. PCS is no longer for sale. Such as shame, because it is such a great program!

You should be able to use MTC again once you install it.

Julie,
Last year when the request for donations went out I was not reading any MTC emails. In fact the first time I paid any attention was when I saw that MTC was no longer downloadable.. At the same time my old Vista PC died and I couldn’t find a copy of MTC even though I still had the registration key. Since I only need a PC to run MTC and PCS, I decided not to buy a PC until I could find a copy of the program and the plugins for my Zing AIR. 

If I understand correctly, I will be soon be able to download the MTC software I need. Then I can get a PC and be able to use MTC and my Zing air once again. I am more than willing to donate and will even double my original donation. I just want to be sure before I buy a new PC. I’m also wondering if PCS is available. 

Thank you for all that you do for the rest of us.

We have had many new people join our group this year, and my hope is that some of the new people will be able to make a contribution of any amount to help support this group.

Here is the information that I shared last year, plus some updated information. 

It took some time to archive the files in MTC_Tuts group that Yahoo took away. I transferred the resources posted there to a sub folder in the MTC-Tuts@Groups.io 
You can download files from MTCTuts.groups.io one at a time for FREE. Some have asked for a way to download all of the files with a single download, so I have archived the group files, and posted them in my DropBox. I am offering this Archive to anyone who makes a donation of any amount via Paypal to this account: julieflanagan1@...   

  

 I am not charging for the content, as that has always been free. Your donation will help a bit with the annual fee that groups.io is charging us to maintain our files.
 

I have included some content in this archive that is not available any other place.    

   

The archived lessons are included in a single PDF file that includes 1659 pages of step-by-step, illustrated, printable tutorials,

  

MTC-PCS Webinar Indexes with links,

  

Old Cricut Handbooks with Vector images, and instructions for use with Make The Cut,

  

24 Shared MTC cutting files,

  

and Trial versions of Old software that works with the following Cricut Machines: Original Cricut Personal, Original Cricut Expression, Create, Cake, and Cake Mini. These machines will work best with MTC if updated to the latest firmware versions, EXCEPT for Create and Cake MINI. The most recent firmware updates render Create and Cake MINI machines unusable with Make The Cut. There is a tutorial included in the archive that explains this information in more detail. 

  

Note about trial versions: These trial versions were free downloads in the past. You may use the trial versions, but they will not have full functionality if you never purchased the software. If you ever purchased any version of Make The Cut, your software key will work with all old through new versions of the Make The Cut software. Full instructions for installation of multiple versions are included in the tutorials. 

Important Note: Make The Cut software is no longer available for sale. However, if you ever purchased any version of Make The Cut, you will be able to use your registration key with any of the trial versions to activate them. I will include the trial versions in the Archive, including  the trial of the last available version of MTC v. 4.6.2. The plugins for the various cutters that it supported will also be included in the archive. 

   

Full versions of Make The Cut include SVG export for use in other software. The SVG export option is disabled in the trial versions of Make The Cut. 

 
The MTC Gallery no longer works, as the server that hosted those user contributed files is no longer available. However, I will provide links where you can download thousands of  files that had been part of the Gallery.

Re: Designing a Simple Pop-Up Card

Yes I use a variety of graphics design programs, and I can’t think of one that does not have a grid that is either permanent or you can turn it on or off. That’s helpful for manual placement, but you still have to do that math =) if you are looking for precise placement.

Re: Designing a Simple Pop-Up Card

I just do the math.
 
Shape 1 is at 1 inch X axis and its 3.2 inches wide. I want them to 1 inch apart. Shape 2 will go at X = 3.2 (width) + 1 (starting X value) + 1 (space) = 5.2 would X value for Shape 2. SCAL doesn’t even have a function to do this automatically. I don’t know of software that does, other than raster editing programs, perhaps.
 
I don’t recall seeing your illustration.

I know you can drag it anywhere. But what values would need to be entered for the x and y positions to make each shape a specific no. of inches from another shape? In the above illustration, what should be entered to make each vertical line 2" from the left edge and 2" from the right?

New Cricut Foil Transfer Kit

Julie Flanagan
 

Some of you have upgraded to a Cricut Explore or Maker. Those who have might be interested in the new Cricut Foil Transfer Kit. Check it out here: https://shrsl.com/2it9i
If you don't have a Cricut Explore or Maker, you can use the WRMK Foil Quill to get the same effect with your cutter. 

There are a couple free cutting projects on my blog that you can use with either the Cricut Foil Transfer Kit or WRMK Foil Quill. https://cuttercrafter.com/foiled-easter-sliceform/
and https://cuttercrafter.com/how-to-make-foiled-slider-popup-card/

The files are posted in SVG format, and are suitable for use with your cutter.

Have fun!

Re: Cutting a rectangle

Julie Flanagan
 

If you are using a good blade, make sure that you do test cuts first to determine the best settings for the media and environment. See this post for information on how to do test cuts: https://cuttercrafter.com/test-cuts-new-cutter/

If your blade depth and pressure settings are correct, your rectangle should cut properly. If not, you can try reversing the direction of the cut. Or you can do a double pass. If the 2nd pass does not cut directly over the position of the first pass, then it is likely that either your pressure is too high, or the blade too deep.

I’ve never used a third party blade in my Pazzles.  For me, it’s not worth the risk taking a chance of running into other problems!   All my blades come from Pazzles.


I tried making two passes.  There is no chad now but it did cut off a very, very thin sliver off the top of the rectangle.  It makes a little difference when your next layer is only 1/16” smaller but I guess I can work around that by making the next layer a hair smaller.  Also, when you do two passes, do you shorten the blade any or reduce the pressure from the recommend amount? 


Thanks,

Check that you are using an authentic blade in your machine. If you are using a third party blade, you will have this issue. Pazzles blades are 60 degree, all-purpose blades. If you use a 45 degree blade instead, you will end up with a chad at the beginning of the cut. You change the offset of the blade if you change the angle of the blade.

I am trying to cut a bunch of rectangles to use as card layers.  I pulled up a rectangle from the shapes file in MTC and made it the size I want it to be.  The cutter starts from the top left corner of the rectangle and goes right.  At the end of the cut, it appears that the blade stops a hair before it reaches the beginning point and makes a tiny cut just a hair to the right.  This leaves a little piece hanging.  I hope this makes sense.  It wouldn't be so bad if it just stopped a hair before the end--I could just use my xacto knife to cut it but it seems to make that little jump to the right.  Any suggestions would be helpful.




Re: Cutting a rectangle

I’ve never used a third party blade in my Pazzles.  For me, it’s not worth the risk taking a chance of running into other problems!   All my blades come from Pazzles.

 

I tried making two passes.  There is no chad now but it did cut off a very, very thin sliver off the top of the rectangle.  It makes a little difference when your next layer is only 1/16” smaller but I guess I can work around that by making the next layer a hair smaller.  Also, when you do two passes, do you shorten the blade any or reduce the pressure from the recommend amount? 

 

Thanks,

Lynn

Check that you are using an authentic blade in your machine. If you are using a third party blade, you will have this issue. Pazzles blades are 60 degree, all-purpose blades. If you use a 45 degree blade instead, you will end up with a chad at the beginning of the cut. You change the offset of the blade if you change the angle of the blade.

In any of our cutter software you can select a line or shape, and position it where you want it to be, x being the horizontal position, and y being the vertical position.

Thank you for the link, Diane! The explanations were clear and the photos gave me a much better visual reference. Lots of great information here!


One last question…What is the easiest way to position lines or objects a specific number of inches away from the edges, or from another object, other than counting the grids?  E.G. my background object is a 7x10 rectangle (the card base). I’d like to position one horizontal line 1.5 inches from the top of the 7” horizontal edge and another horizontal line 1.5 inches from the bottom; and one vertical line 2 inches from the left of the 10 in. vertical edge and another line 2 inches from the right 10” vertical edge.
