I am considering getting an electronic cutter for model building. These are ones marketed to crafters and quilters for cutting paper, vinyl, and fabric. The more powerful ones can cut styrene and thin wood as well. I am looking at the Cricut Maker, Silhouette Cameo, and a couple of the Brother Scan N Cuts. Is anyone using any of these or any of the others? The Cricut Maker appears to have the best selection of cutting tools for working with plastic and wood. My main concerns have to do with the software which seems to be aimed more for producing designs provided by the company building the machines. I doubt I would be using many of those, rather do my own designs in some sort of CAD program and sending files to the cutter.

Thank you Dan. I think that answers most of my questions. What model Cricut were you using in the video and is the Cricut software being released today have the same import capabilities as what you were using? I have already downloaded Open Draw and can see the learning curve will be much shorter than AutoCad.
