    Hey All;

    I know a bunch of you cut direct. I have seen the various discussions regarding same. Does anyone know of a tutorial on how to go about setting up for this?

    I have no previous cutting experience of ANY kind to fall back on, and about 3 weeks experience with X3, so I need a hand-holding step-by-step guide, hopefully with all the good tips you've posted here added in.

    You may need to provide more information. What cutter are you using?

    OP would be the man to talk to, but if your good with computers maybe you can figure your way through this.

    In Corel, you will have to have a "hairline outline" around what you want cut. You would select what you want cut, go to the outline tool, and select hairline. I use Allen Datagraph and X3 this way. An easier way would be to buy Co-Cut.

    Good luck,

    George
