Trying to find the anserws on their website but they are so many, what are the official websites... I am trying to find a description of what these programs can do. Like how do these programs link to your cricut machine? Where do I find the demos....Can someone point me inthe right direction.
Her's a search for the tutorials http://www.google.com/search?q=make+the+cut+tutorial&sourceid=ie7&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-SearchBox&ie=&oe=
Make the Cut (MTC): http://www.make-the-cut.com/
Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL): http://www.craftedge.com/index.html
cricut DesignStudio: http://www.cricut.com/cds/
These are software that allow you to manipulate images to be cut with your cricut. It requires a USB cord to connect your PC to your cricut.
DesignStudio works with the cricut cartridges you own. SCAL and MTC let you use images on your computer.
Thanks!! How long are the demos good for, I haven't got my CC yet(still waiting on HSN), but thought I would start getting familiar with the programs, but don't want to if I can't cut anything when my CC comes.
The only difference between the demo and paid version of MTC is that the demo prints with a line (cut) running through it rendering it useless but you can get a good idea of what it can do. MTC has a forum that offers many tips. I can also help if you have questions.
Ok Thanks for your offer to help, I might take you up on it when (and I'm sure I will) i need assistance figuring out something!!!
Don't forget that the USB cable must be a printer cable and you must have a cartridge in the Cricut for MTC to work. it doesn't matter what cartridge so use the one that comes with your Cricut.

looks like this:
square end goes into your cricut, rectangle goes into your PC.
