Yes.  Your files need to be unzipped.

If you have Windows:  

  1. Save your zipped file to a standard location.  We recommend putting all your LD files in one location.  
  2. Right mouse click on the zipped file.
  3. Choose "Extract All".  You will see a folder appear within that directory you are currently.  The new folder will have the name of the product and as long as you unzip files in the same location, all the product types with the same name will appear in sub directories under that parent file.  For example, if you purchased "The Three Bears" Alphabet and "The Three Bears" Graphic Set, there would be only one folder named "The Three Bears".  Within that folder you would find sub directories named "Alphabet" and "Graphics Set"


The Conical Warp Tool in MTC is a great tool for anyone who wants to make cute cupcake, mug, or cup wrappers.  Besides making wrappers, the conical warp tool is perfect to help warp imagery or words so they can be curved around a round object perfectly.

To use the Conical Warp Tool to make a cupcake wrapper follow these directions:

  1. Start by importing .svg or image file that have enough width to wrap a cupcake.
  2. Select image
  3. Click on the Conical Warp Tool in the bottom menu (looks like an arch)
  4. If your imagery or file is very tall, chances are you will want to click "Trim Bottom Overhang".  The other default settings in the Conical Warp Tool are designed to fit a cupcake wrapper.  Keep as is.



The native file format for Silhouette Studio is .studio.  It cannot import .svg unless you have upgraded and bought the Designer Edition.  If you do not wish to pay for the upgrade, we suggest using .dxf files.  The disadvantage to .dxf files is that they do not come in layered like a .svg file.  It can also be difficult to see what they are as there are not thumbnail images of them until they are imported into your Silhouette Studio Library.  

You can choose to open a .dxf file by clicking "Open" and changing Files of type filed to "All Files" or "DXF".  Navigate to the folder where your LD .dxf files are stored, choose a file and click "open".

One of the lesser known features available in MTC is the ability to change colors and textures of imagery.  This comes in handy when you need imagery to match a specific project you are doing.  The following video explains the process:



The only Cricut machine that is capable of using .svg files is the Cricut Explore.  To import .svg files, you must use Cricut Design Space.

If you are new to cutting machines and cutting files you will find out that as awesome as cutting machines can be, that often your brand new mat can be TOO sticky!  Your paper will not only be "clinging" desperately to your paper, you might find it nearly impossible to get it off without tearing it.  Here is some advice:You can "de-sticky" a mat by touching it with fabric.  We recommend clean cotton.  A clean dish towel will work or even a clean t-shirt.  Some people suggest lightly touching it to their carpet.  That might work if your carpet isn't too new or you ..

Welding is a term often used in the crafting world, and most specifically in the digital crafting world.  When someone refers to welding they will typically mean permanently fusing shapes together.  Welding can be used to simplify your cutting files but it really comes in handy when a person is using letters.  Cutting out many letters and placing them on your project can be very time consuming.  Learning to use the welding tool in your software is a big help.For this tip we suggest first finding a font that is heavy enough to cut out and be pulled off your mat.  Also l..
