Hi, this is my first post. I've used the silhouette cameo for about a year now. I make 3-D paper model kits, fairly simple stuff. I design my kits in a pretty basic vector program, Serif Drawplus since it doesn't involve actual 3D design.
Up to this point I only use the Silhoutte Studio which is perfect for my simple process. Drag and drop picture (jpg) draw my cut lines around it, and perforation marks for the folds... print, cut.. presto.
Today I purchased a second hand KNK Zing so now I need to learn one or the other , MTC or SCAL. My question is which is better for my needs and by better i mean simpler. My needs aren't really going to change much than what I described.
My first thoughts with the MTC demo was that the only way to get an jpg into the work area, pixel trace, seemed overly complex and I cannot see the picture when I import it. Just the outlines. Its kind of important I see it because i need to manually add my perforation lines. I have not tried SCAL yet.
