What does Go Cut! do for you?

The Go Cut! app is designed to allow you to get the most out of your Accuquilt die cutting system by helping you find the right dies for the pattern you are working on. 

Not sure if you own the right dies? Go Cut! will allow you to keep track of the dies you own and also limit shape searches to only those dies you own. 

How does it work?

For example, if you have pattern that says it needs "24 sets of flying geese that measure 2 inches by 3 1/2 inches unfinished and finish at 1 1/2 inches by 3 inches". 

On the main screen use the search to find the shape you want to cut. In this case we just type in "flying geese".

search for flying geese

Choose the size you want to make from the list. I chose the one that matches the pattern.

Go Cut! will show all the dies that can be used to cut the flying geese shapes. If you have indicated which dies you own then they will show with checked boxes. You can also tell Go Cut! to show only the dies you own as show below.

Some patterns will give unfinished sizes and some will give finished sizes. Go Cut! is designed to help you identify the die based on either. In the flying geese example above there was no choice for unfinished sizes because there is no die to match the unfinished dimensions.

In the example below you can see the dies that can cut a finished 1 3/4 inch square. Touch the "Unfinished" button to see the die choices for making an unfinished 1 3/4 inch square.

Finished

After touching the "Unfinished" button you see the following.

How do you manage your dies?

Ownership can be set up from the search screen by simply checking the box next to the die. You might find it easer to set it up on the All Dies screen.

To get to the All Dies screen touch the symbol in the upper left.

Drawer Menu

That will bring up a menu like this where you can select All Dies.

Options

Below you can see the dies divided by those that are a part of a qube set and those that are not.

All Dies

You can quickly mark all the dies in a qube set as owned by checking the box on the qube row. If you don't own the entire qube you can select the individual shapes you have.

Qubes Owned

The Individual Dies section contains dies that are not part of a qube set. Searching is also available here since this list is quite large.
