Something new:- Brother ScanNCut
I'm told that you can "scan any picture, plan or diagram into the CM-900, and the machine will cut it out in many different mediums"!
It's a standalone unit; no PC required. It is designed for cutting card up to 450 gsm, fabric, leather, plastic up to 1.5mm, plywood and MDF.
Sounds like fun!
Has anyone had a go?
