About the Product

And ScanNCut DX has over 1300 built-in designs. Including 140 quilt patterns and 17 lettering fonts. And that doesn't even include the many custom designs you can make by combining built-in designs with scanned images.
Plus, wireless-ready features that work with CanvasWorkspace to let you create virtually anywhere and anytime. Work remotely on your PC, tablet, or even on your phone and then send your cut files over to ScanNCut DX, wirelessly.
Exclusive to this model, ScanNCut DX reads most PES and PHC files‡ directly. There's no need to convert. Just select the appliqué parts you want to cut. Then, take those cut pieces over to your Brother embroidery machine and tack them down to create unique fabric items.
Plus, when you use the stitch detection mode, you can create various drawing, embossing or foiling projects–all from one embroidery file.
Mat-less cutting is now a reality with the optional roll feeder for vinyl. It's perfect for those bigger projects like car decals and signs. Cut material up to 12 inches wide‡ and almost 6 feet in length‡.
And when you use the universal pen holder with the roll feeder, you can draw personalized, banners, too. Now, you have a place to store all of your accessories.
And wait...there’s more, it's whisper quiet. Just right for those late-night crafting sessions. What more do you need to achieve crafting brilliance? Just one thing...imagination! The Brother ScanNCut DX.
