I purchased this machine because I have long wanted a paper cutting machine that I could use without being tied to purchasing designs and cuts. I wanted to be able to use my own, and design and make as I see fit. I am a capable artist and designer with hobby and professional experience with adobe illustrator.
I've had the machine about a month now, and have used it to make vinyl window clings (in reverse so they can go inside my vehicle and show correctly outside), plastic masks for painting, quilting stencils, custom birthday card pieces, papercraft artwork, a keyboard skin for my mac wireless (had to get out the calipers for that one.) and a few other projects that I'm keeping secret from friends before christmas. I have been thrilled with this machine.
The cling mats take some getting used to, and i quickly have learned several materials that gum up or destroy a mat. (Looking at you wrapping paper) I have been able to use temporary spray adhesive to get extra life out of my primary matt so far, and the purchasing of extras has been fairly cheap. Aligning and using them simple and easy.
The Pen attachment is one of my favorites, and I've been able to do some crazy and fun stuff with it. Still working on getting designs setup for multiple different pens. My only complain on using these is there so far isn't a way to get the machine to just pause so you could say switch pen colors on a design, but that's getting pretty hair splity, it's really a this would be nice.
Mostly I've enjoyed the freedom to make whatever I see fit. the 12x12 cutting area works great for me, and I find myself looking at a number of projects I've put of for years just because I didn't feel like cutting out intricate stencils and masks to accomplish it.
I would certainly buy this again, and recommend it. The other reviews might be right in that the tool requires some knowledge and maybe a bit of love to get it doing what you want, but I haven't felt like the machine gets in the way of my creativity at all, and in fact has done everything I've asked of it and more. (with the exclusion of the pen pause, which is pretty specific, lol.)
I love mine.
I already own a couple of cutting machines - the Brother ScanNCut and a Silhouette Cameo 3 - so I have a fair amount of experience with this type of machine and I am excited about this model because it's lower priced so more affordable. Because of the lower price, you will only find the machine, a cutting mat, a cutting blade cartridge and a spatula in the box, along with a brief, set-up guide. This means you will need to purchase some vinyl or cardstock or other material to begin using the machine. I also HIGHLY recommend printing the full owner's manual, available free for download at the Brother website. You will reference it a great deal. Additionally, I strongly recommend watching many of the videos on YouTube about using this machine and the Brother ScanNCut Canvas software.
NOTE: If you already have a Brother ScanNCut machine and thus have a Canvas software account, I suggest creating a second user account for this particular machine as it will save a lot of headaches. The software really isn't set up to let you easily switch between machines when sending a design to the machine. BTW, access to the Canvas software is free and does not require a subscription.
Out of the box, you can cut material like vinyl, paper, foam, fabric, etc. however, it can do much more with additional, optional accessories that you can purchase later. It can draw your designs onto paper using optional, colored pens. It can emboss designs on paper and leather and some other materials using an optional embossing kit. It can apply rhinestones using an optional rhinestone kit. It can create stencils using mylar or adhesive vinyl. It can even cut much thicker materials like leather using an optional deep cut blade kit. It really is amazing how many things this cutter can do.
I suggest starting out cutting vinyl or paper as it is easy and relatively inexpensive. You can easily create vinyl decals for your car or windows or decorate items in your home or for gifts with these decals. Buy some 12" x 12" sheets of adhesive backed vinyl like this Vinyl Ease 12" x 12" - 48 Sheets of Assorted Matte Colors of Removable Adhesive Backed Vinyl for Craft Cutters, Punches and Vinyl Sign Cutters - V0104 and a roll of transfer tape Best Crafts 12" X 10' Feet Roll Transfer Paper w/ Grid- Perfect Alignment of Cameo or Cricut Self Adhesive Vinyl for Decals, Signs, Walls, Windows and Other Smooth Surfaces and you're ready to go. You'll also want a weeding tool set if you're going to cut vinyl and this is a nice, inexpensive kit Caydo 5 Pieces Craft Vinyl Weeding Tools Craft Basic Set Craft Vinyl Tools for ORACAL, Siser, Silhouette and Cameo.
One of my favorite uses for the adhesive vinyl is to cut stencils which I use, along with glass etching cream Armour Etch 2.8 Oz Etch Cream, to monogram and decorate inexpensive glassware. I have created literally hundreds of etched coffee mugs and glass dinnerware as gifts and the recipients are always wowed. The results are quite professional looking.
Cutting paper allows you to create amazingly detailed, custom greeting cards and gift tags and ornaments that are just stunning. Scrapbookers will find this a dream machine, too. You can cut all sorts of paper quickly and easily with this machine.
The mat has a low tack adhesive which holds your material for cutting and sending through the machine and is reusable many, many times, with care. Keeping the clear plastic protective sheet on the mat when not in use will help preserve the adhesive. Also, avoiding ultra thin paper like tissue paper and gift wraps helps, too. However, mats are a consumable and will need to be replaced on occasion, along with the cutting blades. I like to keep a couple of extra mats on hand, including the extra long, 12" x 24" mat for larger projects. The mats are specially made for this model so make sure you buy the correct one. The original ScanNCut mats will not work with this machine, although these new style mats will work in both machines. Otherwise, all other accessories for the ScanNCut will work with this DesignNCut machine.
You will need internet access and to use it to its fullest advantage, a device like a tablet or smartphone that has a camera. Unlike the Brother ScanNCut, which has a scanner built into the machine, you take a picture of designs or artwork or lettering that you have created or found on the internet and then upload the picture to the Canvas software, where you prepare it for cutting and then send to the machine via wifi. However, there are plenty of pre-made designs and fonts available for free or for purchase for people who aren't ready to start creating their own designs. Because you will be creating design files and sending them to the cutting machine over wifi (or you can use a USB cable to connect the machine directly to a computer or laptop), it's extremely helpful to be reasonably comfortable using a computer or tablet.
If you understand that this is a machine with many capabilities and that there will be a significant learning curve to be able to use all of the features, you will be delighted with all that it can do. You will need to add the machine to your wifi network (or have someone do that for you) and you will need to spend time learning to use the free, online Canvas software but if you take advantage of all of the very helpful, YouTube videos, you can start doing simple projects right away and work up to more complicated things.
