So you read my Design Space post for Cricut users but you have a Silhouette instead of a Cricut and you are not sure exactly what to do? No problem! I teamed up with my bestie who does have a Silhouette and she helped me create this awesome tutorial for you!
Uploading SVGs into your studio program is about as easy as it comes (no seriously! I promise!). In order for you to upload SVG files directly into your software, you must have an upgraded version of Silhouette Studio. You can get the Designer Edition for 49.99. I know they sometimes go on sale, so if you want to wait for those deals, you are more than welcome to! In this tutorial, Silhouette Business Edition is being used. This is the top tier program of all the studio editions. You can find a complete list of the comparison between the different studios on Silhouette’s website with this link.
Although free, Silhouette Basic Studio Edition will not upload an SVG file. However, the program will upload a DXF file and most designers will provide that file along with the SVG when you make your purchase. The upload process for an SVG is the exact same for a DXF.
4 Steps To Uploading into Silhouette Studio
- The first step, of course, would be to open your Silhouette Studio program.
- In the upper left corner select FILE > OPEN, or use the shortcut CTRL+O for PC users.
- An explorer window will pop open and you can locate the file on your computer. When you have found your file, select the file and Click OK.
- Now you are done! I told you uploading SVGs was simple!
Now that you know all about uploading files into Silhouette Space, it’s time to get started on your big projects! You need to grab your choice of vinyl and your mats and get crafty! Eek! I am so excited for you. Get ready to experience the magic.
