Calling all Silhouette users—Silhouette America’s PixScan™ technology is going mobile!

With PixScan™ Mobile, you get the entire PixScan™ experience right on your tablet, smart phone, or other app enabled devices.

Here’s how it works:

Using your device’s camera, take a picture of your project*.
Use the app’s trace, offset, or erase features to setup your perfect cut job.
Send your design right to your Silhouette**—the app takes care of the rest!

Silhouette America recommends a 5MP camera to utilise Silhouette PixScan™

Please do not run the Silhouette Studio desktop application while using the Pixscan Mobile App, this may cause the inability to send designs to the connected Silhouette Machine.

*Your Project needs to be placed onto a Silhouette PixScan™ Mat
**You will need to install Silhouette Link™ on a host PC to send your project from a Mobile device to a Silhouette Cutter

Still learning but cool so far


This app could use a better tutorial for sure but I just played around with it and it worked well for me on my iPad. At first I could not get the picture to process like in the other reviews. What worked for me: I put the pixscan mat on my tile floor (make sure no other background clutter is around the mat) and stood slightly to the side so I wouldn't cast any shadows, made sure there were no shadows or glares of light, and took the pic at a slight angle and it processed perfectly! I have not sent my design to the printer yet so I'm not sure how that will go. I will update my review after I do. I hope this helps some of you that are having issues getting your pics to process.

Does not work!!!


I have tried to use this app several times, and it gets stuck on either not recognizing the photo and registration marks, or it takes a picture and then loops back to the take a picture screen. You can't close it and open it to reset it either. I have deleted and reloaded it twice, and I still get the same errors. And yes, I did try restarting my phone, too. This app needs some major rework done on it. And unlike most app, when you try to give feedback, it takes you to the silhouette website for troubleshooting.

Will Not Register Mat - NO MATTER WHAT


Adding my voice to the chorus of bad reviews for this app. It's a great concept, one less step in using a PixScan mat, but it simply does not work.

I'm sure a gaggle of testers somewhere got it to work in a controlled environment at some point and management said "It's good, release it!". However, out here in the real world, it just doesn't work. No matter how many photos I take and retake at all different angles, it absolutely will not recognize my PixScan mat or it crashes.

Rework and more testing folks. This is shabby development.
