to scan

Welcome to a whole new world of innovation with the world’s first hobby and home cutting machine with the magic of a built-in scanner! You can scan virtually anything – drawings, hand-drawn sketches, magazine images, beloved photos, and many other templates – and then save them to the machine or to a USB storage device (not included). With the high-quality scanner you have the following options:

  • Direct Cut
    Simply scan your pattern onto your favorite paper or fabric using the “Direct Cut” function. You then select the area that you want to cut out and the machine automatically creates the contour cuts. This eliminates the need for time-consuming cutting with scissors.
  • Scan a Design to Cut File
    Scan your design and save it as a cut file. You can choose between outline cuts, detailed cuts and drawings. The ScanNCut SDX950 then converts your design automatically.
  • Scan background
    Scan your materials (paper, foil, fabric, etc.) and position your design with millimeter precision. This means you don’t waste any materials and you can still use even the smallest leftover materials.

Use, edit and combine (pre-installed) themes and fonts

Choose from five alphabets and 600 design templates including quilt and appliqué patterns and view it on the 3.7-inch color LCD touch display. You can choose from basic shapes, elaborate designs, frames, quilt patterns, fonts and much more. Use the pre-installed themes and fonts either individually or in combination:

  • Use and edit patterns individually
    Select individual designs and adapt them to your liking using the pattern editing functions. For example, you can resize your design, rotate it, duplicate it, create an offset, and more. Put together your own detailed designs to your heart’s content – without a computer.
  • Combine Multiple Designs
    Create custom cut designs from the wide variety of pre-programmed designs or from your gallery of scanned images. With the connection function, you can combine shapes, drawings, fonts and more directly on the large color LCD touchscreen. Detailed or complicated cuts can be combined into a design in seconds before cutting.

Large scanning and cutting area

With the included 12″ x 12″ cutting mat or the large 12″ x 24″ cutting mat (available as an optional accessory), you can quickly create and cut a wide variety of designs – from delicate snowflakes to a winter ornament to an inspiring saying for the living room wall at home. At the same time, the cutting mats can also serve as practical scanning mats.
