The number one question is my inbox the past few weeks has been… drumroll please.. How to Download and Import DXF Files into Silhouette Studio? I’ve also received emails about Cricut Design Space, emails saying that the file is blank and that you aren’t sure what the heck you are doing. I even received an email (we won’t name names) saying they want to chuck their machine out the front door.
I’m here to tell you that I got you covered friend. Learning this new machine of yours isn’t always easy. As a matter of fact, you may be happy to know that I still mess up and get frustrated. There are days when I want to kick or toss my machine out the door too. (Usually operator error.) Let’s sit back, take a deep breath and try this all again.
The first step to starting a project is creating or picking a design. If you are a newbie, I suggest using premade cut files to start. There are tons of free cut files around the web or for purchase. No need to stress yourself out thinking you need to be a graphic designer overnight.
