    Electronic Wireless Cutting Machines

    Okay, I don't really know what they are called, but I want to create applique in my Premier Plus2 software and send it to a cutting machine for the cutout and then embroider on my machine. I want to use for various designs for baby quilts etc. I am interested if any of you have experience with any of the various machines and recommendations. For example Scan n Cut, Cameo etc. It just struck me yesterday that I might want one of these machines. I already have the Accu Studio and that is not what I am talking about. Thanks!

    I recently watched this video on youtube that is describing what you are talking about. This is Becky of Power Tools with Thread. here is the link to the tutorial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbZAiwXKZpk I don't have a cutting machine so I don't know any more about this technique, but this might get you started.
    Everyone can't be Irish, somebody has to drive.

    I have a Cricut Maker and if you want to cut fabric it is the machine. It has a rotary cutter tool and you don't need to use fusible on the back of your fabric.

    Thanks Irishgal. That was an interesting video. It is a good start to my search. I have a basic Cricut but that is not what I am searching for. Thank you Lyricgirl.

    Scanncut is easy to use, no computer needed.

    I have the scan-n-cut wireless. I can send the applique cut file from my EMB machine to the SNC or transfer to a USB.

    Rhonda K What model embroidery machine do you have? Do you then applique using the embroidery machine? What I want to do is hand applique. I want to be able to use a printed or pdf pattern and separate the pieces that overlap, then turn them into svg files
    for cutting with my cricut. I know I need some type of editing software for that, just don't know which one.

    This is totally true, but the new Scan n Cut DX models have problem mats. Machine isn't very useful if you can't load the mat.

    Hi Ladies,

    I have the SNC650W but haven't used the wireless feature yet. My EMB machine is the Brother Dream with the upgrade. Some of the vendors for machine EMB designs include the cut files now.

    Yes, I can cut the applique file and then EMB the design. This works well for intricate cuts. I don't enjoy fiddley tracing and cutting of applique pieces so let the machine do the work.

    The video posted above by Irish girl was helpful. I watched it last night.

    MD, There may be a software platform for your machine.

    I wanted to add another consideration on selecting the cutting machines. The SNC machine has packages available that are Disney designs. I don't know if other machines offer them.

    They don't because Disney is proprietary to Brother.

    Hi Mopec, if you are on Facebook, you can join groups regarding embroidery. I don't know what embroidery machine you have. Here are some of the groups I am involved in and what a wealth of information, there isn't any end to it lol.
    I'm assuming that you own a Viking, but not sure...On youtube there is a wealth of infomation about this software and I'm betting in one of the videos, they mention what kind of cutting machine to use...On Facebook, OML embroidery and youtube, will probably be able to guide you...Sue and Don are the one's who own this business. I think I'm involved in over 16 different embroidery sites. Here is what came up when I typed in your software on you tube https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...dery+software+
    This might help also, even if it is a upgrade from your software,
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4EHa7KKaoo I believe it's a dxf file or svg or scm.

    Oh my thank you btiny. Yes I have the Husqvarna Viking Epic and the Diamond and the Premier +2 embroidery software. I can create applique in Premier but want to tie all of this together with a scan and cut. I'm getting ready for a family reunion here, but will look up all of your suggestions later. Thank you so much. I thought I had decided the scan n cut dx might be what I wanted, that was until I saw the price! I believe from what I've read the mat problem has been solved. I don't see that I can order it on line either.
