Video Tutorial: Pressure Settings

Friday Film Time

Ok, so it's hardly a film, unless you are holding coffee ;) either way,  it's Friday! and that means, it's video time! Every Friday, we will be featuring a video from our design team or a video tutorial for all of our crafty followers. We are excited to have a place where things are organized for all to see, and for those wanting to know more about the eCraft, we will have many more goodies in store for you!

So, take a minute to watch below:

Pressure settings. Just like the cheese to the macaroni, they go together with the eCraft.  If you are still confused about pressure settings, allow us to explain: Because the eCraft is mat free, you can select how deep your blade cuts.  The pressure settings range from 1-8.  1 being the lowest pressure and 8 being the highest pressure.  For example, if you want kiss-cut vinyl, you would use a low pressure of 1 or 2, but if you wanted to cut through the backing of the vinyl, you would select the blade to go deeper, to a 6 or 8.  And while that sounds confusing, as you can see, it is super easy to figure out! Craftwell has thought of everything when designing this dream machine, from the blue indicator light, to the blade cap cover everything works together to give you amazing results! Now, I know what many of you may be thinking: "Do I need to do the pressure setting test every time I use my machine?!" and the answer is NO! this is the best tutorial for a new user, or for someone who is trying out a new material, but after a few tests, you will be able to figure out the correct pressure setting for all your projects!  Alright, and while we are on the subject, did you know that if you remove your blade cap cover, you can double the pressure of the blade?! So you kind of get a 'chipboard' blade for free! Yes, you can cut thick materials such as glitter chipboard, wood veneer and fabric by simply removing the gray blade cover! Amazing huh?!

Now it's your turn! Tell us, did you find this tutorial helpful? Sound off in the comments!
And stay tuned for next week, when we will post some amazing projects by the lovely ladies of Craftwell's Design Team!
