Free Cutting Files Gallery

free svg downloads

One of my favorite things to do is create cutting files. I initially began designing them in Inkscape and now I use Make the Cut and KNK Studio. Make the Cut works with most cutting machines on the market EXCEPT for any of the Cricuts. If you are looking for cutting software to widen the abilities of your cutter then I highly recommend you try out Make the Cut! You can download free trial HERE.

At first I just offered free GSD files then expanded to KNK and SVG. Some of the files are also in WPC format.
I now offer all my new designs in MTC, SVG, GSD and KNK formats. For more info on file formats please read my post, Types of Cutting Files: Digital Cutting Files Explained.

NOTE: I will soon be phasing out KNK files. I will still offer on existing files but new files may not contain KNK format.
The most commonly used file format now to use with digital cutters is SVG. I think that eventually this will be the Industry standard. Currently SVG files are used with most digital cutting software either natively or by importing. Make the Cut is probably the most all-encompassing- you can use SVG, AI/EPS, PDF, SCUT and most recently supports WPC and GSD.  You can import GSD format files into Make the Cut!

GSD files are used with any of the Graphtec cutting machines including the Silhouette Cameo, and older Quickutz Silhouette SD.

KNK files are to be used with Klic N Kut machines or software. More recently KNK machines have become bundled with Make the Cut. I will sometimes offer KNK files because I can.

SVG files are compatible with most software and machines including Make the Cut (MTC), Silhouette Studio. the new Cricut Design Space
