File Specifications + Software

The Silver Bullet uses Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL), and accepts vector-based design files (.ai or .svg). Files can also be created in SCAL with a limited number of clip art and text options. 

Project dimensions can be no larger than 24" x 48". 


Supplies 

We have a limited number of blades and cutting mats that are used for training. They are used frequently and their normal wear and tear may affect the quality of your cut. To help ensure high quality cuts, we require that students bring in their own cutting mats and blades when using the die cutter for their school-related projects.

Blades

Recommended blades are 45-degree or 60-degree Silver Bullet blades; however, Cricut brand blades are also compatible.  

Mats

Adhesive mats are used to secure your material during the cutting process. The die cutter can fit mats up to 24 inches wide.

We use 12" x 12" and 12" x 24" Cricut brand mats. 

Types of Cutting Mats:

Light Grip (Blue Mat)
Good for printer paper, thin paper, construction paper

Medium Grip (Green Mat)

Strong Grip (Purple Mat)
