Scan N Cut Saturday – Mat Loading Tips

Despite having had no issues over the last eight years, I see a fair few people struggling with the basics of loading a cutting mat into the Scan N Cut DX/SDX machines so decided to pop together my mat loading tips to see if they help.

Not really much more to say about this one other than, have a watch of the video if you are struggling too.

  1. I’ve had my CM600 for several years. Not had any problems with loading so far. However one of my mats have got a little damage on the corners, bit like wear & tear, but it won’t go into the machine. I have replaced with new ones but is there a way to repair the damaged on? Your advice would be very much appreciated. Thanks John

      • Thank you John. I think you may be right, I’d think ironing the corners might melt the coating. However I can’t use it as it is so may give it a go. Will let you know if I do & what the result is.


  2. Never had any difficulties with loading my matt but watched the video anyway. Always learning something from you. Although I don’t have troubles with the mat, I haven’t used my machine in a long time, it’s in a cover but do you think it’s a good idea to clean the rollers, scan and the outside of my mats (they only have the covers on it that I bought them with) before using again?
    Thank you so much for sharing, stay safe and
    have a wonderful Sunday.
