I have a die cutting machine for cutting out letters, words, typography in general.
I have owned a die cutting machine since the first Craft Robo hit the market – I loved the craft robo for its precision, a few years ago I swapped my CR for a Cricut, for its portability and the fact that I changed to a Mac and at the time the Craft Robo software wasn’t compatible with the mac and
If I am honest I have never been that happy with the precision of the Cricut its fine with the one cart I have which is the tags and bags but what I primarily use it for is for cutting words and letters. I have never really figured out if it was the machine or the SCAL software. All the letters have rounded corners which means that I don’t get nice clean sharp edges on fonts like BEBAS (one of my favourites)
It is a minor bug and I have worked with it for several years, now, mainly through doing Project Life, I am starting to see lots of lovely designs being produced for the silhouette, obviously the Ali Edwards designs are lovely but I have just discovered the Project Life designs by Loni Stevens
I would love to hear from you about your die cutting machines/experiences
