How to Load Older Mats to Brother Scan N Cut DX

I want to share my hack to load older mats to Brother Scan N Cut DX. The hack is to make a copy of the top of the DX mat and tape it on to the one you want to use.

Steps to duplicate the loading part of the mat:

copy the top of the appropriate mat.

copy the top of the appropriate mat in two sections.

Print and cut

Print the left and right of the top mat.

Tape to Mat

Cut the copies and tape matching the middle so it fits across the top of the mat.

Tape it across the mat. Take care not to tape over any of the marks.

Please note that Brother advises against using other mats on your device, so this is something I choose to do. After all, it’s my machine.

Finding supplies at the local stores is not easy for me, so I like to hack things.
