I've used this machine a lot to do cutting for scrap booking and card making. It comes with a booklet full of patterns and a few fonts, and you can scan what ever you want into the machine to cut out as well. No computer is required, or expensive cartridges. It's user friendly and cuts nice. I haven't tried cutting chip board yet, or fabric, but paper and card stock are a breeze.
Cuts accurately and quickly. Uses online software to convert svg files. Only drawback is mat does not stay sticky for very long, I have to use a temporary adhesive to use mat now. Have done several projects and blade is starting to go dull. Haven't used scan feature yet, but machine is very easy to use overall.
After reading a lot of information and watching many product videos about the Scan N Cut machine I was excited and really wanted to purchase it. I shopped around and found that Scrapbook.com had great pricing so I went ahead. I am VERY glad that I did!
I purchased the Scan N Cut CM250 and it is everything that it claims to be. There are endless uses for this product and it is very easy to get up and running quickly. I particularly like the small footprint. It does not take up much space at all. I have barely begun to try all the features yet but what I have done so far with it has been amazing!
Go ahead and treat yourself. You will love this machine!
As soon as I set it up, I began using it. (Even without the English manual, I was able to figure out the basics. Brother has since sent me a manual.) No more fussy cutting for me, which my eyes are very happy about. I like that it is stand alone, no computer hookup needed. It is a bit louder than anticipated, but it is super fast at scanning/cutting. The mats are kinda weird, in that they don't seem super sticky- UNTIL you scan/cut then they magically seem to be coated in superglue. I look forward to having this machine for a long time.
I totally Love this machine!!!
I only have done a few projects so far. But totally Love it.
My Daughter was Sooooooo Impressed with the invitations that I made for My Grand Daughter's up coming Birthday. I created in the Scan N Cut Canvas software. After making the samples for my daughter I even figured out a better way to pull the main part of the invite together even better. I will use even less paper and other supplies. On top making the invites easier to build. It was very easy to make the newer bet design.
The design I created is a highly detailed design and some areas very very tiny. The cuts came out perfect!!!
Love All that I can do on the machine and all that I can do through the Free online software Canvas.
Love all the money I'm saving. Love all of the Freedom I have. And so so much more.
Thank You So Much to all at Scrapbook.com and Thank You Brother for making such a GREAT product. <3
I have a cricut but find that this will be even better because you can scan your own designs and cut material wit this machine. was able to use straight out of the box without any trouble
I have had my Scan -n-Cut for about a year. I have yet to use all the features. I use it mainly for cutting out hand drawn images and stamped images. This eliminates the need to buy thinlits and or fussy cut. I have found it well worth the price. I still use my Cricut, mainly because I have lots of cartridges, so why reinvent the wheel just for a new machine. this by far has been an exceptional experience that has enhanced my art and craft time.
I was so very excited about this machine. I have been wanting to purchase something that would cut out my patterns to save me time. Although there are some patterns on the machine they are not what I need and bought this machine since I could scan n cut. I set it up per the booklet directions and the first use cut into the mat meaning that with every new scan the cut lines show up. Items that I print and take to scan it only scans certain parts, not the whole. The stickiness on the mats of course picks up everything: hairs, fibers, paper pcs., etc so they do not last very long and now I am having problems getting it to read the mat to scan. I do have another mat but trying not to use it after only working with the machine a few times. For the money I spent on this machine I am VERY disappointed with it. What a waste and I will not be buying any other machines again.
