signcut pro vs sure cut alot in General discussion Posted August 17, 2013 I have both. My P-Cut came with the SignCut Pro but I got tired of paying a subscription so I jumped on the SCALP for $50 deal they had early on. I I am ok with SCALP as a cutting utility but it is lacking some key aspects that the tech support guys said they would get integrated sometime this summer. (not as of yet). I have since bought a new cutter and was not happy with the factory cutting tools and have ended up back with SignCut Pro. I may just go ahead and buy the dongle so I can stop making subscription payments. SCALP won't work with my new cutter and I kind of have it planned to keep with my old cutter as a back-up system or I may sell it off. My opinion is if you are just cutting smaller stuff SCALP is a decent cutting tool but not a very great design tool. SignCut is a good cutting tool and almost no design ability. Advantage of SignCut for cheap cutters is it has step-by-step cutting that will help get through long cuts on machines that don't track very good. It also does tiling and cut by color real easily. SCALP works and does have cut by color but often files import wrong and don't have the color layers you built them with. SCALP will accept native AI files in current versions rather than downsaving them to illustrator 8 which SignCut requires. If SCALP will eventually get the tiling and step-by-step cutting they would be pretty close to par.
