Imagine, scan and create with the Brother ScanNCut SDX1200

Unchain your creativity

Traditionally, cutting machines have been dependent on a linked computer in order to generate designs. The advent of the Brother ScanNCut SDX1200 has changed all that – it is the first available standalone cutting machine.

With no PC connection requirement, it offers enhanced flexibility and versatility, making it the ideal solution for crafters, hobbyists and SMEs looking to capture manipulate images and designs, and then transform them into tangible craft or branding items.

Portable designing

The Brother ScanNCut SDX1200 has been designed for ease of use – and ease of transportation between workstations and other locations. Compact and lightweight, it offers true plug & play capabilities and is ready to start scanning straight out of the box.

True crafting flexibility

With the ability to scan almost any item, including printed media and photographs, and to cut through fabric, felt, cork, foam and other light materials, the Brother ScanNCut SDX1200 enables you to apply original images across multiple substrates.

The high-resolution 600dpi scanner has a 12” x 24” scanning bed to accommodate larger designs, and plenty of built-in memory for storing capture images. These can then be manipulated by using the intuitive touchscreen functionality. Zoom in on highlights, edit out unwanted details or errors, and add your own unique take to designs before cutting them out.

The full-colour screen is large enough for effortless editing, and contributes to the standalone nature of this next-generation Brother cutting machine. Ease of use has always been a hallmark of the ScanNCut range, and the SDX1200 continues this tradition.

For added inspiration, you can search the built-in design library, which features 17 fonts and over 1300 customisable patterns that can be used to embellish your scans, or create new designs from scratch. The creative possibilities are endless, whether you are using this cutting machine to create home décor items, gifts or commercial samples.

The Brother ScanNCut SDX1200 can be used with the optional extra Brother Roll Feeder 2 to expand your creative scope still further. The Roll Feeder 2 allows for the design and cutting of heat transfer and craft adhesive vinyls up to 1.8m long, plus a leader sheet for continuous cutting.

A cut above the rest

Of course design is only half the story, and the Brother ScanNCut also excels at transferring designs onto physical media. The safe, precise Auto Blade system ensures highly accurate results on any crafting substrate up to 3mm thick, giving you even more options when it comes to bringing your designs to life.

Connect and share

While the Brother ScanNCut SDX1200 does not require any linked device in order to function, the fact that it features WLAN connectivity means that it is now easier than ever to store completed (or work in progress) designs online, and to share them with creative collaborators, customers and suppliers. This connectivity eliminates the hassles (and risk of lost or corrupted files) associated with having to use USB or flash drives, and prevents cable clutter in the workplace. 

Users can send designs to their Brother CanvasWorkspace accounts for further editing and safe storage. The latest version of this software lets you access, view, import, edit and export elements from the online Canvas Project & Pattern Collection, as well as empowering creativity through additional premium patterns and functions.

Creativity knows no bounds

The Brother approach to creativity is all about empowering you to imagine, change and create – no matter where you are, or whichever materials you prefer to work with. The possibilities are endless, whether you are scanning, designing and cutting for your own pleasure, or as a commercial service to customers.

With online training and exceptional aftersales support – including consumables and accessories – available from Kemtek and Brother’s nationwide network of resellers, purchasing the new Brother ScanNCut SDX1200 cutting machine unlocks years of exciting and rewarding creative opportunities.
