How does it work?
Using Crafter’s Edge Fab Dies is easy. All you need is your favorite dies, Crossover II Fabric & Paper Cutting System and the materials you want to cut.
Remember: Always run test cut to determine optimum pressure for material type and number of layers.
The Crossover II Fabric and Paper Cutting System makes it easy to use many types of dies. You can use most steel rule dies, the Crafter’s Edge Fab Dies and standard paper cutting dies in the Crossover II Fabric & Paper Cutting System (die cutting machine). Adjust the pressure of the rollers of the machine so for each die. Make sure that you run a test cut before you start a project so you are comfortable with the settings and amount of layers you are cutting. Show shapes that would be difficult to cut with a rotary blade. Place more than one die on the surface of the cutting area. This will show how people can nest shapes close together to save time and fabric.
Depending on the material, you can cut multiple layers at once. Begin cutting two or three layers at a time and work up to 6 layers. This will ensure that you are comfortable with the roller settings and die performance.
1. Select your die and your fabric. Fold fabric to get multiple layers or cut fabric to fit within the
active cutting area.
2. Place your Metal Adapter Plate on the White Base Plate.
3. Place fabric or other material on the metal plate, then place die with cutting edge down toward the metal plate and fabric.
4. Cover sandwich with clear top plate.
5. Run your sandwich through the die cutting machine. Adjust roller pressure before moving the plates
through the machine. The lesser the material thickness the smaller the pressure needs to be.
