Curio only wants to work with VECTOR files--this means a file composed of lines and arcs. Vector files are what CAD drawings are made in. Almost all other files--scans, copies and the like are RASTER format--where the image is made up of little dots--pixels, like photos are.


Herb,

That is not completely true. There is an option for importing jpg files and use a trace function.
It is described on this blog:
http://www.silhouetteschoolblog.com/2014/01/how-to-cut-jpeg-with-silhouette-studio.html
http://www.silhouetteschoolblog.com/2014/08/tracing-complex-and-multi-color-designs.html

BTW: I haven't tried it so I don't give any guarantees. :mex:

Indeed, Ken.

Do you remember what the website is for the carbide knives? .020'' paper stock is harder than styrene on the cutter--but I like working with card--always have used it,

Thanks Alwin

Will look into that, next cutting job. If it works it will be a lot easier ( I hope) for me.

I'll go look Herb. It was Amazon or ebay, that's where I buy everything. :thumb:

Those particular ones have a very low rating Ken. Fish around on that site and you will find cutters and a holder made (or sold?) by EMY which have a high rating, and I think/hope fit the Curio.

Details when they arrive

@Herb
googling around revealed that CB09 blades are appraised by the community. I'll try these also, as they are also available over here.

Sorry Herb. Those have a low rating because people, like me, can't read or see. Those don't fit the CB09 holder and you can see it if you look at the pic.

These are the carbide ones I got that DO fit.

Guess I must be one of the old guard. I don't use the computer for design purposes. I tend to see what is on the bench for materials and consult the brain cells for the design. If it doesn't work I don't have to consult the computer on why it doesn't. I don't have enough time or energy to add more steps to the process besides I like to build things in 3d as apposed to on screen 3d.
