To use a file in Silhouette Studio you can either open, merge, or import to My Library.  Silhouette Studio will open the following files:

  • .gsd 
  • .studio - this is the native format for Silhouette Studio
  • .dxf - this is the file format LD packages with cut its and recommends
  • .svg - this format is only available to open when you upgrade to Designer Edition
  • .ttf and .otf - font files

In the past, LD offered bonus product exclusively available at checkout for a 50% discount.  We've discontinued that promotion and will work toward personalizing your shopping experience to help you find the products that interest you.  For now, we invite you to follow us on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook so you don't miss out on any upcoming promotions. 

Yes.  Your files need to be unzipped.

If you have Windows:  

  1. Save your zipped file to a standard location.  We recommend putting all your LD files in one location.  
  2. Right mouse click on the zipped file.
  3. Choose "Extract All".  You will see a folder appear within that directory you are currently.  The new folder will have the name of the product and as long as you unzip files in the same location, all the product types with the same name will appear in sub directories under that parent file.  For example, if you purchased "The Three Bears" Alphabet and "The Three Bears" Graphic Set, there would be only one folder named "The Three Bears".  Within that folder you would find sub directories named "Alphabet" and "Graphics Set"

The Conical Warp Tool in MTC is a great tool for anyone who wants to make cute cupcake, mug, or cup wrappers.  Besides making wrappers, the conical warp tool is perfect to help warp imagery or words so they can be curved around a round object perfectly.

To use the Conical Warp Tool to make a cupcake wrapper follow these directions:

  1. Start by importing .svg or image file that have enough width to wrap a cupcake.
  2. Select image
  3. Click on the Conical Warp Tool in the bottom menu (looks like an arch)
  4. If your imagery or file is very tall, chances are you will want to click "Trim Bottom Overhang".  The other default settings in the Conical Warp Tool are designed to fit a cupcake wrapper.  Keep as is.

The native file format for Silhouette Studio is .studio.  It cannot import .svg unless you have upgraded and bought the Designer Edition.  If you do not wish to pay for the upgrade, we suggest using .dxf files.  The disadvantage to .dxf files is that they do not come in layered like a .svg file.  It can also be difficult to see what they are as there are not thumbnail images of them until they are imported into your Silhouette Studio Library.  

You can choose to open a .dxf file by clicking "Open" and changing Files of type filed to "All Files" or "DXF".  Navigate to the folder where your LD .dxf files are stored, choose a file and click "open".
