Some, but not all, were forwarded to KNK USA based on the original pins numbers that wereregistered. If you are confident that this applies to you, please send an email to email@example.com the full name that would have been used for registering and the email address. I will then contact KNK USA on your behalf. ______________________________________If you know of other MTC/PCS users who may not find this document, please share and urge them to back up their registrations TODAY!

My thanks to Paul Zingah (Crazy_Mr_Zing at the MTC Forum) for providing the solutions in Options B and C. These were key in motivating me to write up these instructions and get them out to the MTC world. Thanks also to Liz Ackerman for reading andtesting
Make The Cut recently went offline. This has caused numerous issues with registration and access to the now defunct online file gallery. Shortly after MTC went down, the developers of Sure Cuts A Lot began working on an import filter. This is an excellent option for those who have switched to SCAL, and for anyone who needs to make the switch.
Sure Cuts A Lot is a design application focused on providing premium features. If you're looking to upgrade your software, Sure Cuts A Lot 5 and Sure Cuts A Lot 5 Pro (often referred to as SCAL) offer an impressive digital toolbox for vector design. SCAL offers plotter drivers for all KNK models and Skycut plotters
