I am new to the make and cut program, was using silhouette studio and silhouette cameo machine. Still use them, but I now have a ACS Eagle ultraforce 24", I have a son of 4 years old. Can anyone give me advice on what settings I would set my KNK to cut vinyl?. I cannot find anything on the internet that gives you cut settings for different types of materials.. Please help

    Hi Margaret and welcome to MTC and to your Eagle. If you haven't found it already, I would suggest that you find the MTC manual (it can be found through the help menu inside MTC). It has a wealth of information that has been pulled together to help learning and using MTC and your machine(s) as easy as possible. I believe there are also some appendixes with some suggested cutting settings. Please note however that all cut settings are just that suggestions as a place to start as many factors can impact what settings need to be used. What works on one machine, will most likely be a little different from what works with another. There is a little trial and error in finding the correct settings.

    I believe the manual found through MTC is the default one for the Zing cutter. It appears that @SandyMcC who developed the manual also has one specific to your cutter on her site which can be found here:http://www.iloveknk.com/support/user-manuals/acs-user-manuals/
    It will have more "specifics" as it relates to your actual machine probably.

    Good luck and enjoy MTC and your new cutter. Please let us know if you have any software specific questions we can answer for you here.
    Go Vols!

    Thanks Sandy, is it a good cutting machine. Had the cricut first, got frustrated with it, sold it and bought a silhouette cameo (which I love and still use), then I purchased the Eagle. I am doing vinyl cutting with it so hope it is good.
