00:22:40 End of Susan’s Demo of “Slice Form Floating Card”
00:23:05 General Discussion regarding “etching” and what sort of designs are best to use. Note: This discussion assumed user was talking about cutting out a design in vinyl and then using etching cream or an air eraser to “etch” on glass. It does not discuss “etching” with MTC and a tool on the cutter. If this is what was meant, email Bryan to clarify.
00:31:00 Three similar ?s from the Forum thread are combined and discussed by Bryan. The questions related to cutting images or names in vinyl and adhering to round glass ornaments and cutting designs to use for etching on wine glasses. Bryan discusses the issues and considerations in trying to do something on a “round” object rather than a conical shape.
01:03:00 Bryan explains the 3 options on the virtual mat for “Fill”, “Fill/Outline”, and “Outline” and explains you cannot control the depth of the outline
01:11:09 Bryan explains the differences in “Join”, “weld” and “Boolean join”
01:22:03 Bryan explains the difference in “split” and “break”
01:26:45 Bryan explains the “layer” option
01:28:20 Bryan demos how to create a “paper piecing from a black and white coloring book page of a candy cane using “layer”, “split” and “break” (note: this can also be used to create a print and cut image as well – you would just “cut” the outline shape by hiding the other layers)
01:36:30 Bryan explains how to rotate an object in MTC but notes that you cannot rotate by a user specified angle – it rotates at specific increments
01:41:25 Bryan demos how to take a picture and create a “layered” picture for a print and cut using a picture of a cheetah
