Silhouette Studio is an application that is used to design Greeting cards, Party decorations, Stickers, Etched Glass projects and more and send them for cutting to Electronic Cutting machines like the Silhouette Cameo.
The projects are stored in files that are called Studio Files. They contain the design which may include shapes, images, effects, gradients and more.
In this article, we will discuss how to convert these Silhouette Studio files to SVG format. SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) is an image format for 2 dimensional graphics based on vector data unlike Raster Graphics like PNG and JPG that depend on pixels to form the image. It is due to this reasons that SVG images can be scaled to very high resolution.
We will be using a Free Online Tool called ‘Silhouette Studio Converter’ developed by ‘Ideas R Us Software’ to transform the Silhouette Studio Files to SVG. The link for this converter is provided at the end of this article.
It is important to note here that the conversions are not 100% error free. There are some known issues that can be encountered. You can go through these documented issues by clicking here.
