SCaL and Cricut Design Space

Post by BetsyP »

I purchased SCAL 5 thinking it would help me import svg files into Cricut Design Space. However, I am still getting the message that the files are an unsupported file type. Can someone please enlighten me about usage with Design Studio. I did check the little box that says "Design Space" compatible.

Most likely, you are trying to open a SCUT file instead of an SVG file into Design Space. This is a common mistake by new Cricut owners who have bought SCAL. So, when you have a design in SCAL that you want to import into Design Space, go to File>Export and name the file. In the second window after that, mark the Design Space option. Then that is the file you will want to import into Design Space.

Actually, I was careful to load the image as an svg. I guess I'll have to call Cricut support.

If you want me to see if the SVG imports into DS, I'm happy to test it. Just email the file to me at smccauley45@cox.net. Also submit the original SCUT version, as well, so I can see if there's a reason for it to not be accepted by DS. My email is smccauley45@cox.net.
