Calibrating the Silhouette is only required for adjusting the cutting alignment as it relates to print & cut jobs. Calibration should only be performed if there are concerns specifically encountered with cut lines not aligning with the contour of printed images during print & cut jobs that use Registration Marks.
If misalignment is not universally the same distance off around the entire image, then calibration is not the proper course of action and further information about setting up print & cut files should be reviewed. If misalignment is universally the same distance off around the entire image and all steps for proper set up of a print & cut file has been reviewed, then you may proceed with the process of calibrating the Silhouette.
Steps to calibrate the Silhouette are as follows:
NOTE: If you have a sketch pen, it may be preferable to a blade in order to more clearly view the results and make adjustments accordingly.
The Distance Adjustment section is not necessary for print & cut alignment issues. This form of calibration is only necessary if the actual resulting size of an image as it is cut (i.e. a square) does not match the size shown in the software program.
