Instructions for SVG file sizing in Cricut Design Space and PDF printing

Sizing in Cricut Design Space
Cricut Design Space is not able to read the original size from an SVG file, so it is usually necessary to change it to the right size before cutting. In Cricut Design Space you can check shape measurements in the Edit panel on the right hand side. When the shape is selected, the width and length of the shape is displayed in the Edit panel and you can type in measurements as needed.

Pdf files
Do a test print of this file to make sure that it is printing out at the right size. In some pdf readers, like the Windows pdf app, I could just press print and it printed out at the right size. When using Adobe reader, with both windows and mac, I had to click in the box next to ‘Actual size’ in the printer settings to have the pieces come out at the right size. If I didn’t, the pieces printed out a couple 16ths too small.
