Cricut Design Space and Cricut Maker uneven text cutting

JannyLeeJannyLee Member Posts: 1

My cuts are not consistent and are very irregular and uneven.  I uninstalled and reinstalled Design Space and have also disconnected and reconnected my Maker and put in a brand new blade.  I changed my canvas to Classic.  I did some troubleshooting and have determined that it is not Inkscape that is the issue.  Whether I upload SVG files that I created in Inkscape into DS or type the text directly into DS, I still get the terrible uneven and irregular cuts.  The first two pics show the set up in DS - everything looks great.  The next pic shows the cuts.  Even printing the exact same one twice yields different results between the two.  The font is not the issue as this is a different font than I was using before when this happened.

    @JannyLee - welcome to the Make The Cut! user software forum where we support the software Make The Cut! and its supported cutters. I don't use DS at all to cut, I only have to support the software end of things, not issues with cutting. But this looks like a classic issue. Uninstalling and reinstalling software is kind of like doing the same things over and over and expecting a different outcome =). So have you changed your blade? What blade is it? It looks likes the blade tip is too exposed and could possibly be too big a blade tip to make those itty bitty tight corners, given it looks like the text is .75" high and 4" long. And what are you cutting? It could be vinyl, it could be heavy cardstock, can't say. I think you need to experiment with a different blade, or different blade holder.
    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.

    I am having the same problem! It is driving me nuts. I've tried all of the things you listed plus attaching, unattaining, grouping, and welding the text before cutting. Still currently searching for assistance!

    Ug0001 - welcome to the Make the Cut software support forum. Problems with cutting with a Cricut brand cutter and their software will need to obtain help from Cricut support. Unfortunately, Provocraft did away with their official support forums like this one years ago. If you do social media, there are various Cricut support groups on Facebook.
    Go Vols!
