Highly impresses with this machine. Was not expecting it being able to cut so precise. Any line longer than 1mm can be cut! Main reason why I went with this machine compared to others (the ones with cartridges) is that I can use my own creations/designs. The software allows to import a variety of formats (BMP, JPG), for me the most interesting one is the scalable AUTOCAD format (DXF), which allows resizing without the loss of quality. There are other programs (e.g. Corel Draw), which can export to this format. The software overall is easy to use and has some nice features beyond just designing your layout (check for updates, etc.). You can either run the machine hooked up to a PC/Mac via USB cable or standalone, if you loaded your designs onto an SD card. Just one tip: In my case, the recommended cutting depth was one number too low. E.g. if the program recommended 3 for the depth, I had to add one (adjust the blade to 4) to make the cut clear. Have only cut paper so far, no other materials. Also: There is a second CD in the box, which contains some instructional video. I found that to be very helpful.
