It has finished only 3 rows of shoes in 30 min. What did I do wrong? What can I do to speed up the cutting process? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Jennunder. The speed has nothing to do with SCAL, nor will changing the dial on the cricut have any effect. It has to do with their being too many nodes in the design. What I would do is download the free program inkscape (Inkscape. Draw Freely.
) and open the svg, select the arrow tool at the upper left sidebar, click path and simplify. That will reduce the node and make it cut faster
