I was recently gifted a cricut cake! Hooray!!!! icon_biggrin.gif I am looking at getting either scal or mtc. I used SCAL briefly on my sister's cricut. It was pretty easy to use but it seemed like there wasn't really a way to control the cutting speed. Does MTC have an option for controlling the cutting speed? Which one would you recommend?

MTC does have that option and I'm happy with it.

i suggest downloading both demos from their respective websites. try to do the same cut using both programs (e.g. get an image from your computer and try cutting it out in the same position, rotation, and size). which do you find more intuitive to use? i think they're both adequate programs. i have scal 2.0 and it comes with a little library of shapes. what i like about MTC is that it has an internet search for other people's shared shapes built into the program.

I also have MTC and it's great. I trialled both programs and liked this one better.

Thanks everyone! I didn't know they had a trial version, I'll have to play around and see but I think I'll probably go with mtc since it has speed controls. Can't wait til my cricut arrives!
