Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Open Robot File
In Silhouette studio, create a new file (make sure that your workspace matches the size of paper you will be printing on), place the print & cut robot image in the workspace, and size it as desired. (A print & cut image consists of a design to be printed and corresponding cut lines. The cut lines are not printed.)
Step 2: Turn on Registration Marks
Click on the registration marks icon located along the upper right-hand tool bar and select ‘Show Reg Marks’. You will note that there are now crosshatched areas on three corners of your workspace. Ensure that your design does not overlap the crosshatched area.
Step 3: Print Design
Once you have your image placed on the screen to your liking, print your job to your regular printer by clicking on the Print icon.
Step 4: Cut
Place your printed material onto the cutting mat and load it into the Silhouette.
Select the appropriate material from media list of the Silhouette Cut Settings menu > adjust your blade accordingly > click Send to Silhouette.
Step 5: Assemble
Once the design is cut out, remove each piece from the mat. Fold along perforated lines and use glue to assemble robot pieces.
