Weeding lines in SCAL4 software

Posted on 19th January 2018
*Note- SCAL4 used.


1- Open SCAL4 software.


2- Insert your design you are cutting. I am using Free SVG bundle from fontbundles.net



3- When you are ready to add weeding lines, select your design and go to effects, then weeding.


4- A new window will appear.


5- The first option you have is the border offset. you can adjust the amount of space you will have from the rectangle around your design when placing weed lines.


6-  You have 8 choices on the way to add weed lines. To apply the weed lines you sim[ply need to click withing the border area and a line will appear.


7- The first choice is you can add lines from the border to the outside edge of the shape. This will not give you weed lines in the middle of your design only to the outer edge.


8- The next option does the opposite of regular weeding lines. It will add lines within the filled area of the shape.


9- The third option will add lines around the shape and in any holes within the shape. This is the traditional type of weeding lines that people tend to use.


10- This option adds a line within the specified area, so where ever you click a weed line will appear between 2 points.


11-  Now we come to the vertical option. with this selection you can add lines from the border to the outside edge of the shape. This will not give you weed lines in the middle of your design only to the outer edge.


12- The next option does the opposite of regular weeding lines. It will add lines within the filled area of the shape vertically.


13-  The next vertical option will add lines around the shape and in any holes within the shape. This is the traditional type of weeding lines that people tend to use.


14- Finally this vertical option adds a line within the specified area, so where ever you click a weed line will appear between 2 points.

When you have finished selecting your weeding choice, click OK.


15- Once you click OK you will see the weed lines on your design when hovering over them with your cursor.



16- If you go to preview you can see clearly the weed lines and where they are in line with your design.
