Solid Score Lines and SVG Files – Video

I do a lot of Dreaming Tree  and #svgcuts projects. I use a silhouette with solid score lines where possible, because I don’t like the nibs the dashed lines have. A lot of people have said that isn’t possible with silhouette to score. If I made of video of how I do it would anyone be interested?
When I complete my projects, the folds look like I use a bone folder to score them.
Here is the video, it’s nothing fancy but hopefully useful.

This is the blade I’m talking about using in the video, you will be amazed at how long the blades last and how precise the cut is.  If I was to still be using the Silhouette blades, I’ve given up a long time ago.
