I have the scal 2 and want to cut out a mickey head, with the number 50 also cut out of the inside of the mickey head.

If I weld them together, the 50 is grayed out. If I don't weld, then the mickey head & 50 are both red. Does this mean they will cut out the way I want it to?

I'm in a hurry, and need to cut many of these,a nd I was wanting some experts to give me some direction.

I have looked at the online tutorials, but can't find anything on cutting a shape out of a shape????

THANKS!!!!

UPDATE.......
I managed to figure out how to cut the 50 out of the mickey head...howeveer, one issue......when the zero cuts out....so does the center of the zero.....so the 5 looks great...but the zero doesn't have a center.....UGH!!!! I'm thinking this isn't possible to make????

The grey area is lines that are welded together and will not cut.
HTH, not sure if you are wanting them welded together or not.

I'm having a hard time understanding what you are trying to do. Could you possible take a screen shot of your SCAL mat? Maybe I could understand better if I could see what you are working on?

The easiest way for you to do this with a number with a "middle" is to use a font designed for stencils. That way the middle will still be attached by the tabs at the top and bottom.

Try looking for a font that has a slash (/) through the 0.
