Is there a way to realign paper to recut?

Is there a way to realign paper to recut?

Postby ebroekhuis » October 24th, 2015, 8:39 pm

I am learning to use my cutter to cut my origamic architecture cards. Up till now I've been using dashed lines for both the mountain and valley folds. That has worked fine for less detailed projects but now I'm trying to cut some more detailed patterns here the folds are as small as 1/16" and I'm not having good results. I would like to flip the paper over so I can do a light pressure cut to get to valley folds to work better. Is there a good way to align the paper so that it would cut in the right spot

When you put your paper on the mat for your first cut line it up to the gridlines on the mat.
When the cut has finished bring the mat forward by going offline and using the buttons - but keep the mat under the pinchwheels.
Turn the paper over and line up to the same gridlines. Press online and you will go back to exactly the same origin point.
