What is the best type of file to use for Cricut Design Space?
The Cricut App is compatible with many file types. The file extension for these files is as follows.
- .png file
I always include everything except dxf, gif, and heic in my free cut files. But I find that the svg file type is the best to use when working with any graphics. The scalable vector graphics file type can be enlarged or reduced without losing the integrity of your image.
SVG cut files are always going to be the best quality of all the file formats that Cricut allows you to load. It is scalable as large as you want it without losing the integrity of the design. An SVG image also usually comes in different layers for you to recolor and cut how you want.
This easy step-by-step tutorial will work for any Cricut Machine and also for free designs or purchased designs.
