How Can I Open a SVG File?

cricut open svg file

I am focusing on SVG files for use with your electronic cutting machines such as Cricut and Silhouette.  Please note my designs (as of right now!) is for Cricut or a paid version of Silhouette. 

Silhouette uses Silhouette Studio and Cricut uses Design Space to edit and design images for their cutting machines. Both of these have free versions, however, only Cricut can open SVG files. You can not import SVG files with the free version of Silhouette. 

Silhouette provides paid versions where you can import SVG files: 

  • Silhouette Studio Designer Edition:  This version is a paid upgrade and allows you to import your own artwork in SVG format and create new designs using extra design tools and features.
  • Silhouette Studio Designer Edition Plus:  This version is a paid upgrade and includes all the SS Designer Edition features as well as additional file import options and also provides advanced rhinestone features.
  • Silhouette Studio Business Edition:  This is a paid upgrade and includes all SSDesigner Edition and SSDesigner Edition Plus features as well as provides features such as SVG export and more advanced features.  It is designed for large-scale projects and high quantity production to help save time on larger amounts of materials.
