Silhouette Connect® Overview

The Silhouette Connect® plug-in allows users to send projects to the Silhouette electronic cutting tool directly from Adobe Illustrator® or CorelDRAW® and includes the ability to add registration marks for "print & cut" jobs that work with the Silhouette machine's registration mark sensor.

The Silhouette Connect® plug-in license key is offered at a cost of $39.99. The license allows the user to utilize the plug-in on up to three different computers. Once installed, the Silhouette Connect® plug-in is accessed inside the Adobe Illustrator® or CorelDRAW® programs. Proper installation of the plug-in requires Adobe Illustrator® or CorelDRAW® to be installed on the computer before installing Connect. Purchase of the Silhouette Connect® plug-in does not include the Adobe Illustrator® or CorelDRAW® software.
