I'm not a numbers person and for the life of me I can never remember what the cut settings should be. So after wasting a decent amount of my precious glitter HTV today I finally broke down and manually added Glitter HTV to my materials list with the settings I found to work perfectly.every.time.
You can do this with any material that doesn't come pre-loaded with recommended settings such as freezer paper or, in my case, glitter heat transfer vinyl.
Once you have found the settings that work for your medium, what you want to do is open up Silhouette Studio. Click on the Cut Settings Icon.
To the bottom right of the Materials Type window you'll see a little +/- signs. Click the plus sign to add a new material and type in the name of the material.
All of your custom material cut settings can be found at the bottom of the materials list under "User Defined." If you want to delete a material in your User Defined list, simply click on it and hit the minus symbol.
By adding custom cut settings, you will avoid wasting materials once you find the perfect settings...especially if you're like me and you can't remember what you had for breakfast let alone the cut settings for 148 different materials.
