Just a few photos of some of the stamped images I have cut out with the scan n cut. I have been limited in what I can do because of not having much stuff with me, but I have been astonished at the delicate cuts this machine can make. Like Most people, I have been most intrigued by the machines ability to scan and cut, the prospect of a pair of electronic scissors to do all that fussy cutting was enticing. There is a bit of a learning curve - the machine totally refused to recognize a couple of images for instance, but after playing around for a while, and picking up some handy tips and tricks, I am getting something like a 95% success rate with cutting out images now, and I'm sure I can improve on that when I play with it some more at home.
Just look at the stems on those leaves, it even cut out the tiny thorns!
There was a tiny tiny border on the right hand side of the images I cut out for these photos, but I have sorted that now by re-calibrating the machine, which is quick and easy to do......
I hadn't mastered cutting out enclosed areas in the following photo, I managed it on the wine bottle and glass in the first photo....
You can see the border I wanted to eliminate on this Polkadoodles stamp, she had little bobbles on the end of her hat that cut beautifully, but I tore them getting the shape off the mat....
Now I am no expert on this machine, yet! But a couple of points have been raised that I can answer.
You can quickly and easily make shadows for cuts by using the seam allowance option
You can import SVG files and convert them in the Canvas software
I have also purchased a lot of Silhouette files, I wanted to know if I could cut these on my SNC and the easiest way seemed to be printing them out, then scanning in to the machine and saving
I love being free of the computer!
Expect a lot more detail when I am back home and unpacked. I'll be back tomorrow with some amazing digi cuts to show you. See you then x
