A vinyl cutter is a small machine used to cut custom designs out of sheets of vinyl. The Maker Hub has three vinyl cutters for use and two kinds of vinyl available:
- Heat-transfer vinyl which is great for applying to clothing or pieces of fabric
- Adhesive vinyl for creating custom, durable stickers
The software needed to operate the vinyl cutters is installed on the Mac computers connected to the vinyl cutters. We primarily use Silhouette Studio here in the Maker Hub.
