Other than non 3d printer cutters? I certainly know how to use normal cutters.

I'm not making it up. I wound up using them to place an outline on the rolled out fondant/tylose and cutting with an exacto knife. Once I got the rhythm down, it didn't take as long as I thought it would.

These cutters seemed very sharp, so I was mistakenly sure they were going to work and didn't try them until I was doing the cake. All I can say is beware of cutters made in a 3d printer

I do wish those green ones from Etsy had a sharper cut for sure.   I really press down and do a little jiggle with the cutter to "hope" that it is cutting.    Then I pick up the cutter...hopefully with the fondant still intact...look at the back side and wipe all around the edges....that is where there are always little frayed pieces of fondant due to the non sharpness of the cutter.

 

That cutter...in a metal form would be sooooo much better.   But with my challenging math skills in cutting the angles out by hand...I will put up with the slight aggravation.

A 3D printer, is that was those are done with? Makes sense now. You know, I use a cutter sometimes, but honestly the best results I've had is printing a template from Google, on cardstock (thick paper a must as far as I'm concerned). Take a box cutter blade, cause they're long and easy to hold, and make downward slices thru the fondant or gp. You can't screw it up, they're perfect every time. plus, since you can size it to what you need, you're not bound to what size a cutter provides.

Really, very precise method with box cutter blades. I let the cut pieces set up a bit, after I check to make sure they're all straight and lined up after.cutting.
