Silhouette machine

I unpacked it and set it up and tried cutting a print and cut image with it. It cuts intricate details as tiny as a a double strand of hair. I am so impressed. And print and cut is awesome. It did keep saying can't find registration mark until I manually dragged it to first point and then it automatically started finding other registration marks.
I also played with software. One thing I found out while converting AI files to .dxf format - is that one needs to ungroup and also release all compound paths else you get an error. Yep the scroll square frame. I wish it accepted svg files directly and  more easily. If only it were 12 x 12 but no problem now either as I am going to use this mainly for print and cut and it so easy printing in your regular printer and putting it on here and if I want bigger I always have the huge 24 inch knk don't I? I haven't yet tried MTC with both knk and silhouette. I need to do that soon and also start using the knk for embossing , emgraving and punching.
