File type specification:

Vector graphic file type icon Vector graphic file type

In generic terms 'cut file' is often related to designs for die-cutting machines, which are used to cut designs on paper, vinyl as well as balsa wood,fabric, leather or cork.

To our knowledge no specific 'die-cut file format' exists and instead die-cutting machines support vector graphics formats, including .ai, .svg, .eps, .dxf, as well page layout files, but occasionally might also accept raster files.

Software provided by various cutting machine vendors might use their own project files and send the exports directly to connected machines.

Most professional vector or page-layout design software (for example Illustrator/InDesign) actually support options to include DIE-CUT FORME parameters for specific color swatches.

You can also find software aimed for die-cutting design, for example Cricut Design Space, Silhouette Studio, and Brother CanvasWorkspace.

All know file types with cut file extension are actually not suited for die-cutting.

Help how to open:
