Default Re: Help cutting spandex with Silhouette

Yes, you need to bond the fabric to a sheet of heat and bond, also, you need the fabric cutting blade (which is really a regular blade just only use it with fabric and not paper)

Try a blade length of 4-5-6 depending on your fabric thickness same on the depth

Cutting speed of 3

Do not double cut--it will fray the fabric

Be sure you are using a new or nearly new mat--I've been disappointed in mine, or spray removable adhesive on the back of your fabric to be sure you get a good stick.

Can't promise these settings will work--depends on fabric thickness, heat and bond type, etc. just play around. It will work.
