How to create a split monogram effect in sure cuts a lot 4
Posted on 2nd December 2017
*Note- SCAL4 pro used.
1- Open Sure Cuts A Lot 4 software.
2- Design your text. I am using England font from fontbundles.net.
3- Click on your library, select a slim rectangle.
4- Adjust the rectangle across the middle of your text. Ensure that it covers the whole length of the text.
5- Select both the text and the rectangle. Click on Path > back minus front.
6- Select all of the text.
7- Click on Object > break apart.
8- Select the bottom half of the text and right click > group.
9- Repeat, this time grouping the top part of the text.
10- You now have a top 1/2 and a bottom 1/2.
Go to the library and select the thin rectangle again.
11- Adjust the rectangle to make a thin long rectangle that is slightly longer than the width of the text. Duplicate the rectangle so you now have two.
12- Place each rectangle over the edge of the text.
13- Select the bottom part of the text and rectangle. Go to Path > Union.
14- Select top part of the text and rectangle and repeat the above Path > union.
14- You now have 2 welded parts of your text. Adjust the width of the gap between the top and bottom text to fit the rest of your monogram.
15- Finally, type the rest of your text in between your monogram split text.
