Cutters compatible with MTC

Hello everyone!
It's been a while since I have been in the forum. Life has been busy and chaotic, with very little time for craftiness. (insert sad face). Once upon a time, there was a great work up done by someone with all of the cutters and their compatibility with the MTC software. Does anyone remember that or know where I find it? I'm researching cutters for stencil making. Thank you!

    Look on the Make The Cut! software webpage:


    They are listed right there.
    Still using MTC but slowly migrating to SCAL. KNK cutters including the Force and Maxx Air continue to be my favourites. Fluent in other cutter languages.

    Paper Threads had the best cutter comparison chart ever designed and it was plagiarized by several cutter companies. When the owner of Paper Threads ended her business, the plagiarizers never updated their information because, as plagiarizers go, they're too lazy and/or incompetent to handle such a task.  

    Unfortunately, most of the newer cutters do not work with MTC because new MTC plugins haven't been developed since ~ 2014. However, most new cutters allow SVG files to be imported for cutting, so you can still use MTC for designing. 

    I now use a Skycut cutter (https://plottergeeks.com/) myself. It cuts from SCAL4 or 5 (which readily imports SVG files created in MTC) and all of the Skycut models will cut the various stencil materials typically used.
