I would just try calibrating with the card you received. Sounds like it's newer.

PollyBear, yes, it will be interesting to see how a comp link works! Hope it does the trick for you, you certainly deserve for the machine to work after all the hassle you've had!
Best wishes to you

I would be thrilled! Right now, not being able to cut chipboard is the only drawback to the Slice, IMO.

The 1.10card is the newest version. That is what came with my new Slice.

Hello today is an extra smiley day actually, as my Slice is now back home!! The Slice was sent from here last Monday, and it has just been delivered. I am amazed at how quick it was.
I was sent a new machine, so now I have two 6" mats, and two of the Basic cards if anyone wants one, just let me know!
The best part is my Slice is working like a dream. I am really thrilled and can't wait to do more on it.
I know this has been said before, but the customer service from the Making Memories company is wonderful!
Okay, enough chatting from me, I am off to do some Slicing

I am so glad this forum exists. I was having problems with my Slice making "wonky" cuts, and I learned so much about troubleshooting. It's a G6, so one of the earliest ones. I finally called Making Memories today, and they want me to ship it back to them and they'll replace it and throw in some more goodies to cover postage. They also extended the warranty because it's a known problem. Thanks, SCS bloggers for all of the help!

I'm late to the party, but hope someone can answer this question as it pertains to the "Slice vs. Cricut" debate: I see the Slice doesn't (currently) cut chipboard. Does the Cricut? That's what holds me back every time I hear the chirps on TV.

TIA

yes, the cricut cuts chipboard as well as other thicker materials, they even have a deep cut blade!

I wonder, though, if even with a deep blade, if the Slice machine has the strength to cut through chipboard?

Does the Slice currently cut through wool felt?

I find that because I can use paper - I pop-dot letters more, I guess that is my adaptation to not being able to cut out chipboard.

Yup!

That's what I do, too!

Altho, I guess we could always make "faux" chipboard (a technique where one cuts multiples of the exact same thing about 4-5 times from card stock, then glues the layers together).

Pop dots seem the easier and faster way to go, tho. LOL!

I'm heading to Michaels after work to pick up a Slice. I do have the CI but the portability of the Slice is what got me. The CI is just to expensive and bulky with all that goes with it to lug it around. There is a crop this Saturday I want to go to that the Slice would be great for!

Last time I went to a crop, I found myself trying to leave spot here, spot there for things I wanted to cut with my CI. After that, I didn't go to any more crops, thinking I would rather be home where I have all my stuff (mainly the CI).

I hope the Slice will do enough for me at crops and I can complete pages while there. If it all works out, I'm going to be attending a lot more of them.

congrats scrappinmoments! the portability of the Slice is one of its best features!

just be sure to plug that new one in for several hrs and give it a nice long "drink", and it'll be ready to go for you

have fun

What is CI? I wanted to add that I owned a Cricut and 36 cartridges and all the extras...sold it all because I didnt use it. I didnt use it because I hated to drag it out and set it up. I feel the slice can set on my desk and will get more use. I am hoping anyway that is the case...

Amber, that's exactly why I've never bought a Cricut or Silhouette. I simply don't have the space for it. The Slice, although it is limited in size of cuts, really does all I need it to do and for what it doesn't do, I have other toys and an LSS die cut center to help me out.

one of the things that has kept me form buying a cricut is i hear you have to piece all the die cuts, instead of just cutting them out and being doen like with the slice!
i dont want to do all that layering!

I heard the hands free thing is magnetic but don't quote me on that. Hopefully Julie gets to see it at CHA and can fill us in.

Hello everyone! Newbie to the boards here...
Love that there is a slice board..have a quick question for you guys.
I've had my slice for over a year. I love it, and have generally had no issues. The only issue I have is at times, my machine leaves "hangnails" on my images. The best I can describe it, is that it just looks like a litte cut into the image, like the blade didn't come up fast enough. I notice it most when I cut letters that have cut-outs, like the letter A.
My machine is updated, calibrated, and my paper always stays down on the mat. I always home the blade, and it's always plugged in and charged.
I've called mm before, and they told me sometimes that happens, but have no fix for it.
Anyone else ever had this problem? I love my machine, and have learned to live with the random little cuts it sometimes leaves behind. But I just wanted to see if anyone else has had this occur. Thanks in advance for any answers!

Hi.....I'm a new Pink Slice owner!!! I bought one at CHA, and couldn't be more excited. I didn't know I needed one until I saw them in person....it was so awesome!!!

They were demoing the new hands free, and it's great. It's a plastic "sleeve" that slips over the machine and has essentially 4 magnets at each corner of the Slice. The glass mat then reacts and you don't need to even touch the machine as it cuts! You can pick up the mat by a corner and the Slice will still hang on to the glass mat (paper and all) without falling off. It's great!! The back side of the glass mat is rubberized and is used for embossing, so it has a duel purpose!! They said the release date should be around the middle of March and the price will be $35 -$39 for the set.

For those of you who use this all the time.....does it cut through Grungepaper????

Right now the Slice is designed to cut through materials 0.5mm thick. I think Grungeboard is thicker than that.

Thanks for the heads up on how the new mat works. I can't wait to have one in my hot little hands!

Yes, I have had my Slice leave little hangnails but it doesn't always do it and quite frankly, I haven't noticed it doing it since it was sent in for repair and came back. Personally, I think it's partly calibration and partly size of the image. Seems like it did/does this more with smaller sizes than larger. If you get the new mat, you might see this issue disappear, too, because it might also be due to slight movement of the machine when it cuts.

You all are so great to share all that you know about the Slice. I, too, have been contemplating getting one, but can't decide if I would use it as much as I should. The one question that I have, and this may have already been asked, so forgive me if it has - too lazy to read through the whole thread.

Is the Slice limited to the shapes on the Slice cards only, or can you download other cutting files (svg, etc.) and use them with the Slice? I suspect that the answer is no, but someone has mentioned to me (not sure how reliable the source is) that this feature is in the works. Is this true? And if so, how far out is this feature? Thanks in advance!
