Silhouette Studio® (V3.0 and higher) offers a direct scan access feature where the software can access a connected scanner to import images directly into the Silhouette Studio® software program. This feature can be accessed as follows:

  1. Open the Silhouette Studio® software program
  2. Go to the File Scan option
  3. Once the Scanning panel is open, select your scanner from the Source drop-down list
  4. Ensure your scanner is powered on and an image has been placed on the scanner bed
  5. Press the Start Scan button in the open Scanning panel in the Silhouette Studio® program

Your image will then be scanned directly into the software and be ready for use with the Trace feature in order to create cut lines for the scanned image.
