In the Let’s Explore v4 series we have covered Line Tools, Drawing tools, and Flexishape Tools available in the Silhouette software.
Today we are going to look at the Freehand drawing tools that are available.
Who can freehand draw? Well, typically not me, but it can come in handy for certain projects. My freehand drawing is something to laugh at these days.
I will say that it is something that takes practice.
I use a trackball mouse, so it can be a bit easier than a regular mouse, but you will still be able to use this tool no matter what tool you use.
If you have a touchscreen, you may be able to use a stylus or your finger to draw.
On the left hand side of the Silhouette Studio software you will find the Tools.
Under the Freehand tool here are 2 options:
Draw Smooth Freehand
Check out the video below to see the difference between the two tools
Notice that the Smooth Freehand Drawing tool will “smooth” out the design between the red dots that appear. This gives you less edit points on the line you are drawing but will affect the final shape. Each tool can have it’s useful purposes.
Here is a closer look at how the Smooth Freehand Drawing tool works in action around a design
And after the drawing is done, you can then make additional changes by adjusting the Edit Points as shown in the video above.
I love that there are so many options in the Silhouette software!
It can definitely be a handy tool to have.
