will MTC work with original silhouette?

TAMinatorTAMinator Member Posts: 2,924
I may be getting my hands on an old silhouette. I think it's an original since it's several years old and the person got it herself used (she thinks she's had it 7 or 8 years now).  Whether or not I actually get it depends on how much it'll cost to ship.  But while it's a possibility I might as well ask....

Will MTC work with the old machine? I saw the main page says SD and Cameo but I don't know if an SD is a different machine than the original one.

    The SD is the original Silhouette labeled as a such. It did not take 12x12 mat/paper. I am not at home to check,  it seems like it’s mat size was around 6x9. Yes, it should work with MTC. I had one and used it with it. Still have it somewhere.

    I believe that the cutting size for the Silhouette SD is 7-1/2 inches, or 7-1/4 inches. I know that an 8" wide Cricut mat will fit it. If you need any additional help post back.

    Thanks!  We convo'd back and forth and she said it had SD on it.  Because I have MTC, I don't really need to concern myself with their software, right? I have no plans on getting any files with their file extension.

    Thanks for the tip on the mats. I'm really interested in seeing how it cuts compared to my cricut. I know the cricut isn't as accurate with cuts. I don't remember if it was here or elsewhere but I remember seeing a cut comparison with the word milk though not sure if it was silhouette or another machine. I still quite like my carts as it's just easy. I even made myself a reference booklet of images and words/phrases for the ones I have. Very handy! No images themselves but I know what carts to look at for a bear or cup, etc. :)  And without scrolling through every cart listed in mycutsearch.

    I had the SD and loved it.  And yes it works with MTC.  I since traded it for the 1st Silhoutte Cameo.  It does cut more intricately than my cricut expression.
