Can anyone tell me the latest version of MTC please. I’ve been using mtc with my trusty Zing for the last 6 yrs trouble free. However I fear that when I do get trouble with my setup I’ll be told that this software and the Zing machine are ready for the antiques roadshow and you will have to start over again with some latest equipment. Is this the case?April 4, 2020 at 12:30 pm #47380SandyModerator
Before you do ANYTHING, make sure you have your MTC reg code backed up somewhere safe. This is a number that begins with the letters “MTC” that was sent to you after you registered your MTC pin number originally. The pin number is worthless once you’ve registered, so that’s why having the reg number is all that matters. Here’s a link showing ways to recover your MTC reg number if you don’t have it backed up: https://www.iloveknk.com/Support/Tutorials/Make-The-Cut/Retrieving-MTC-and-PCS-Registrations.pdf
Regarding the most recent version, it’s still 4.6.2. The owner of MTC stopped working on his program five years ago, unfortunately. If you’re on an older version than that you can download 4.6.2 here:
If I can help you with anything else, let me know. You should also take note of my MTC support page because I keep MTC info available there and you will be able to find a contact email for me, as well:

I LOVE this program. I HATE Design studio it is dumb .Is there anyone or anywhere I can find a mod or update to get it to control Silhouette 4 plus machine? MTC is so much better than anything else out there the svg ability is more accurate. the designing is more intuitive I need this I dont have time to transfer inaccurately to SVG then import it into the DUMB software before I can cut. I just need a update I am sure I am not the only one out here and willing to pay or it because it is just better!!

Unfortunately, the developer of MTC abandoned his software over 5 years ago, thus the last version is still 4.6.2 and it came out before even the Cameo 3 was released.
There is another option and that’s Sure Cuts A Lot 5 which does support Cameo 4. However, it doesn’t support the Auto-blade feature so you need to manually set the blade to the depth you need. But otherwise, lots of Cameo owners are much happier with it compared to Silhouette Studio.
Here’s a link to download the trial which will work for 15 days:
There are two versions: regular for $50 and then a Pro version for $179. I can provide a link to where these are sold at this discounted price. There’s also a video classroom with over 150 SCAL5 videos to accelerate your learning of the software. The videos can be watched in any order and as often as you like. The classroom is normally $75 but, again, I have links to combined deals. I believe the cost of regular SCAL plus the classroom is only $89! Great value for what you get.
The added features in SCAL5 Pro versus regular are presented here: https://www.iloveknk.com/wp-content/uploads/Info/SCAL5-Pro-Features.pdf
Also, I have a table to help you know what functions are called in SCAL compared to MTC and where to find them. Let me know if you have any questions.
