Non-cutting elements

Hi all, can you place non-cutting elements onto the workspace? A bit like in Silhouette where you can make a line or shape a no cut line.

    @Chubby_Ninja - in MTC there isn't an option to assign a no-cut status to a shape. To manage that, you put the shape or shapes on their own layer, then hide the layer when cutting. So for example I hide the text lettering when cutting in a print and cut where I just want the tags I printed out to be cut. You can assign a no cut to a shape in SCAL.

    You can make elements that are inside a shape into the texture of that shape using texture snapshot

    So you could add a line like in the left rectangle and do a texture snapshot of the rectangle and the line
    the result is on the right, the line is now part of the texture (fill) of the rectangle



    MTC does not allow setting of line colour so
    rather than a line it may be better to use a think rectangle then you can could set the colour

    Thank you for the replies, basically I create boxes for my partners 3D models, the boxes can be joined in unconventional ways so I'd like to be able to mark join points i.e. A to A, B to B etc to make it easier to understand how to construct them if I'm not around to explain. She generally likes everything to come from the base, but for efficient paper usage and effective design that is not always practical on larger/taller boxes.

    I leave notes when I have time, but how I see things isn't how my partner see's things lol!

    You could use texture snapshot to add the a and b etc so the are only printable

    I would do a separate 'how to' on a second page (in MTC I would duplicate page) and then write directly on it and title it as info.

    @Chubby_Ninja Not sure if this would help you, but when I am doing a large repetitive project like wording for Christmas cards or baby announcements, I do one Print and cut, and do not cut it, just print it out in duplicates on my printer, then carefully line the paper up exactly on my mat and cut the printed sheets.  It works out well for me and goes very quickly.  ~Diane

    A novel razor cartridge includes at least one non-cutting element disposed anywhere within a blade array between a guard and a cap and/or in a blade position of a frame providing skin/hair management.

    I like this idea
