how do I do mirror cut on iron on vinyl?
Hi Carol, On the machine they classify mirror cutting as a half cut. When you have your image ready on your screen and have flipped it hit okay. It should then ask you to pick if you want to cut, draw, emboss etc. Select cut. On the next screen you should see a wrench icon. Select that then scroll down and you will see where it says half cut. Select ON. Below that should be half cut pressure and it will most likely be on zero. I raised mine to a one and haven't had any issues with it. Let me know if that helps and if you have any other questions. Courtney Douthat
Ok I tried it and it worked thanks was very concerned since it wouldn't cut through on looked like embossing after setting on cut. Carol

ScanNCut Accessories: Everything except the old blade, blade holder and mats will work with the new SDX225 and SDX125.

Q: Which models does the universal pen holder work with?
A: The universal pen holder works with all ScanNCut and ScanNCut2 CM650W models.

Q: Is the touch pen & spatula stand available as an accessory for my current ScanNCut machine?
A: No. The touch pen & spatula is only available with the ScanNCut2 CM650W/X models.

Q: Can the ScanNCut Online (WLAN) activation code be used multiple times?
A: The ScanNCut Online (WLAN) activation code can be used for 1 SacnNCUt2 machine. Please be sure to keep your activation card in a safe place in case you need to reference the 16 digit-code again.

Q: Can the ScanNCut Online (WLAN) activation code be used with previous models of ScanNCut machines?
A: No. The previous models of the ScanNCut machine are not wireless network ready. The activation card can only be used with ScanNCut2 models.

Q: Can I use multiple ScanNCutCanvasWorkspace accounts wirelessly with my ScanNCut2 machine?
A: Only one ScanNCutCanvasWorkspace account can be tied to the machine and be used at one-time. However, you can alternate between ScanNCutCanvasWorkspace accounts. Please refer to the Wireless Network Guide for more information.

Q: How do I save my .PES/.PHC file for use in the ScanNCut2 machine?
A: Please make sure your file contains applique stitch data.
Not all ScanNCut and ScanNCut2 models read .PES/>PHC data. Specifications vary by model.

Q: When I import an SVG design into ScanNCutCanvasWorkspace with very small elements, the smallest elements, disappear when I save the design to an FCM file. How can I make sure that they are included with the rest of my design?
A: The reason this is happening is that ScanNCutCanvasWorkspace will remove tiny design elements to ensure better cutting quality on the ScanNCut machine. So first determine if you really need those elements in your design as they may not cut well. For example, one reason you may want to keep them is if they are meant to be drawn, not cut. If that is the case, then simply enlarge the overall design in ScanNCutCanvasWorkspace before saving to an FCM file. You can reduce the size again after you have loaded the design on the ScanNCut machine.
