Precision Cut Your Appliqués with ScanNCut/ScanNCut2*

You don’t need a ScanNCut home and hobby cutting machine to use this software, but you’ll love this option to precision cut your appliqués. It makes cutting appliqués simple.

Take an appliqué design, and click the ScanNCut button to turn it into artwork. Then export the file as a cut file in FCM or SVG format.

You can also cut appliqués from sources other than Simply Appliqué by changing the color to the Brother appliqué color and clicking on the ScanNCut button. This creates the artwork for the cut file. Once again, save the file out as an FCM file and take it to the cutting machine to cut the appliqué pieces.
