If you’re new to the ScanNCut or want to learn more about using the machine, then whether you use a CM series or SDX series machine, you’re in luck!
There are so many FREE educational videos, resources and tutorials out there, on EVERY aspect on using the ScanNCut – over the last six years, many talented ScanNCut users have put free tutorials out there – to save you having to trawl through Youtube or google, I’ve put a list together of the most helpful resources and Youtube channels – remember – the ones I mention are just a *few* of the hundreds of resources out there – everything you need to know about the ScanNCut is out there! 🙂
First of all – READ THE MANUAL! 🙂 In your box, you will have a quick start guide which will get you started – but did you know an indepth manual for your machine and ALL the kits 🙂 can be found on the Brother Solutions Centre website?
Go to the website below: choose your country – product search – cutting machines – select your ScanNCut model – manuals – select “operation manual”
I highly recommend printing the manual off and keeping it in a folder next to your machine for easy reference. I also store all the manuals on a USB for backup.
I have my own YouTube channel – Independent ScanNcutter –
And I do regular Facebook lives for Makers Superstore – previous Facebook live videos can be found here:
There is a LOT of help from other users on Facebook – here are some recommended groups that have free educational content for beginners, intermediate and advanced users.
To find the educational content for these groups, first of all join the group, then head over to the “units” section.
Also there are dozens of other ScanNCut user groups out there with literally tens of thousands of fellow users who will happily help you and give you some advice 🙂
