CanvasWorkspace 101 – how to open your free account

We’ve designed our ScanNCut machines to be standalone. That means you don’t need a computer or any design software to use them. Just take them out of the box, and start getting creative!

Just because they’re standalone, doesn’t mean we haven’t created a space for you to get designing to your heart’s content. We have. It’s called CanvasWorkspace.

CanvasWorkspace is our free application that allows you to enhance or create your own original cutting and drawing designs. You can also download hundreds of free projects, save all your designs to use again and even browse additional patterns to purchase.

In this article we’ll show you how to create your own free account. Then you can get exploring and having fun – for free!
