Creating Weeding Lines In Silhouette Studio

Posted on 13th February 2017
1- Open silhouette studio. Select the type tool.


2- Type your text and then select the font you would like. I am using Butterskotch font from fontbundles.net


3- Using the line tool, click on the shift key and draw a straight line.


4- Select the replicate panel.


5- Select the advanced replicate icon.


6- Add the number of lines you need. then click on custom replicate and adjust the Y axis to how many cm you need them apart.


7- With all the lines selected, align to the left. Adjust the lines over your text so they are in the right place to cut for weed lines.


8- Move the text away from the lines.


9- Click on the shape tool. Draw a square around your lines.


10- Select all of the lines and square. Right click and make compound path.


11- Place the text back over the lines. With the text only selected, right click and copy the text.


12- Right click again. Select paste in front. This will paste a coy of the text directly over the original text.


13- With the copied text selected, select the weed lines also. Click the modify tool and select subtract.


14- Remove the copied text. this will leave the original text and weed lines, but the weed lines now no longer cut through the text.


15- In the send screen you can see that the weed lines only cut around the text. making it easier to weed with cutting vinyl.
