There are two types of digital graphics files – vector and raster. Vector images are made of lines and curves (or paths) to create an image. Raster images are composed of a series of unconnected dots. Vector designs are different from raster designs because the detail and quality does not change based on whether you increase or decrease the image in size. Silhouette machines are designed to read and follow vector lines.
An SVG (scalable vector graphics) file is a widely utilized vector file type. All images available on the Silhouette Design Store are available in a proprietary vector file type, .studio3, and a limited selection is also available in the SVG file type. Designs available with the SVG bundle option will include a .studio3 file, as normal, as well as the option to download and use an SVG copy of the design. The included .studio3 file can be used in all versions of Silhouette Studio®. However the additional SVG copy can only be used in upgraded versions of Silhouette Studio (i.e. Designer, Designer+, Business editions).
As a proprietary file format, .studio3 can only be used by the Silhouette Studio software. As an open file format, SVG files may be utilized in a wide variety of crafting and designing software.
