Batch Export

hello friends,
i would like to save my .mtc designs into .svg (or any other vector format)

is there a way to batch automate this process,
as i have hundreds of designs and doing them one at a time would be a pain?

    Is this for you personally?  The reason I ask is that SCAL5 now imports MTC files which is VERY helpful for those who can no longer use MTC because they bought a new cutter that only cuts from SCAL.

    @simpleton - sadly no batch export in MTC. And no batch import into SCAL either. In any event, it will mean an individual export from MTC, or an individual import to SCAL. I would suggest if you do not already have SCAL, do consider purchasing it. It fully supports a lot of cutters, it's being actively updated with new cutters as they emerge (except Cricut and Brother cutters...we all know that story), is regularly updated with any bug fixes as they are identified, and Sandy has developed User Manuals for several different cutter brands. We have very active FB groups for help, and I feel confident that we will be supported as users for a long while yet.

    And you just never know, perhaps the SCAL developer will consider a batch import function, he was very open to the suggestion by Sandy that he should develop an import for MTC files...that's one thing that you can hope for. Just convert files you want to use as you go, and maybe the future will have more options!!!
    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.

    yes, i am looking at scal
    it was more because i seem to use serif's designer more than mtc, since i sold my knk

    i don't mind taking the time to export individually
    i once hand-polished an old copper tabletop full of intricate grooves, over the course of a month with a toothpick and polish compound

    thank you both for all the knowledge you have shared, i have learned much from you both over the years
