The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

We welcome everyone but are trying to concentrate on just one program, Inkscape.

Angela and I do not own Cricuts, therefore we do not use SCAL or MTC and will not be able to answer any questions.
There are Cricut owners on this forum but for SCAL or MTC questions you would be better visiting forums dedicated to teaching either software program. We are not trying to send you away and want to ensure you can find the best forum to learn your chosen programs.

For owners of MTC software there is a dedicated forum with tutorials and free files. http://http://make-the-cut.com/forum/?CategoryID=7

If you know of any forums for Cricut / Inkscape users could you please list them here to make it easier for new members to find?
Thank You
Carolyn

The BEST forum for using Inkscape to cut on the Cricut is the SCAL forum.

http://forums.surecutsalot.com/

I love it as the members are friendly and very helpful with both Inkscape and it's interaction with SCAL.  Lots of Inkscape files posted for download and a ton of links to Bloggers who create in Inkscape.

I see that HeatherM and Firstcut have joined also so this forum is pretty much covered for SCAL don'tcha think? :lol:  :lol:

Now we need an MTC person or two.

Make the Cut.  An alternative cutting software for the Cricut, I think.

Yes it is an alternate.  If you download the demo, or visit there site, you will see that it resembles SCAL very close.  But I know in the beginning that it did some things like exporting a file out as an SVG, which SCAL didn't.  But I haven't kept up with SCAL very well lately, so I don't know if SCAL does that now.

SCAL exports images and svg files now.  It can cut with Craft Robo machines too.  The programs are pretty comparable and when one program adds something, the other usually adds it too.

Hi Heather, I knew owners of MTC software can cut to a Craft Robo but it is news to me that SCAL also cuts to other machines. Does SCAL show up as a printer like other Craft Robo software does?
I am very curious if both programs will be able to cut to the new Imagine. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

I think so, I don't have a Craft Robo and I'm unfamiliar with how to cut with it.  I do know that there is something about Craft Robo cutlines in the SCAL preferences.  Also, it looks like Craft Edge pulled the version of SCAL2 that had the export and print features.  I'm sure that it will be back, but when is anyone's guess.   :?:

I am very out of touch with what is new on the market  :roll:  so when I saw the word Imagine mentioned I had to go see what I could find.  Sooooo, it is the new Cricut.   I am sure most of you already knew that!  :lol:  Lots of videos on You Tube.  Definitely a move in another direction BUT  I think they may have "shot themselves in the foot" by not providing it with a facility to use other software, even their own!   I read an article saying that not only do you not need a computer but, in fact, you cannot use one with it.  Does anyone have any more information that contradicts the article I read?

I have seen a post which suggests there may be new software available around December time.
