One of the best sewing technologies out there are the Brother Scan N Cut machines. These amazing inventions are made to work with both fabric and paper.

To find out more about how to use Brother Scan N Cut machines, check out the guide below.

What Are Brother Scan N Cut Machines?

The selling point of Brother Scan N Cut machines is their scanner that varies in DPI (dots per inch). Through this scanning mechanism, you can scan images or sketches to create designs. You won’t need any additional technology to create what you want on your fabric.

The Brother tagline for this machine emphasizes that you can simply scan, cut, and create your project with no additional steps. The entire process is streamlined through the Brother Scan N Cut machine.

Brother Scan N Cut Features

The Brother Scan N Cut features are what make this product amazing. They include:

  • A background scan that allows you to edit your cut design on an LCD screen before execution.
  • 12″ by 12″ and 12″ by 24″ cutting mats and scanning areas that allow you to cut more and save time.
  • The ability to transfer your cutting designs by USB.
  • A welding feature that can handle drawings, shapes, and font on the LCD screen.
  • Seam allowances that help with piecework.
  • Editing that’s easily accessible on the LCD screen.
  • Fabric preserving settings that can compensate for working with smaller pieces of fabric.

These features can not only save you time but money as well. Saving time means more money for small businesses to spend on other fabric orders. Additionally, the features can help you avoid mistakes that can be costly when working with fabric.

Working with Fabric

Since this machine also works with paper materials, it’s important to check your setting before beginning anything complicated like embroidery. This also applies to different fabric projects, as the Brother machine depends on the thickness of the material you’re working with.

You will need a fabric support sheet on the fabric mat system before you begin your work. Don’t forget to smooth out air bubbles that appear before you begin.

When you’re ready, you can have the machine cut your fabric. Make sure to do a test cut before you commit more of your fabric.
