Cutting a Shape
« on: March 05, 2011, 06:38:45 AM »
Hello everyone, sorry I haven't been around much.

I have downloaded SS and really like it.  Angel sent me a link to a You Tube video on how to print and cut a shape and have tried to do it several times but don't seem to be able to get it right so thought I would see if anyone knows where I am going wrong.

I have a Robo Lite and what I wanted to do was cut out a shape (not print).  I followed the tutorial.  The lady is printing and cutting but I thought that I could just send it to the Robo to be cut.  Everything works fine until I get to the end where it is meant to have all tiny little red marks around it but mine doesn't despite pressing the 'trace' button.  

This is the link to the You Tube so that you can see what I am trying to explain:-

Hi Pam

I looked at the Video and I was alright with it until she selected the Trace button and not the Trace Outer edge button, and I couldn't really see what kind of cut she was going to get. Sometimes it would be nice if the person showed a closeup of the actual screen so that you could get a better look at what you are suppose to see. Is it the same design that you are cutting are something else?

It was something else.  It was a plaque shape from a CD that I have.  It has a pattern on it but I thought by using that method if I could get the outline of the shape I could use it on different coloured card and make it different sizes.

Many thanks Angel I have duly received your email and thank you so much.  That is much clearer and works!  You never know I might even have a go and trying to design something yet.
