Making Memories Slice Calibration + Video
I made a video on calibrating the Making Memories Slice. I received the new Basic 1 Design Card v1.7 a few weeks ago (you get this disc by registering your Slice), but had not calibrated my slice yet. There is a tutorial on the Why Slice website on how to recalibrate - so I really wanted to show the differences, before and after, although my slice did OK before the calibration and there is not much difference to the shapes I cut - I can still tell a difference. I also have a couple of tips on my video on choosing the best cutting patterns. I hope this helps someone.
This first photo shows 1 1/2 in circles cut with the slice on top of punched circles - the blue one is before calibration - you can see clearly that is is not circular, the white ones are the results of calibration. The left one (E) is my final calibration and is a much better circle.
The second photo shows before & after shapes cut with the slice at 1in. Blue is before & white is after. the biggest difference I saw was in the circles & scallops.
