Default File Type

Silhouette ModelMaker™, designed to be used with select Silhouette cutting models, uses a TB4 file format as its proprietary file type. 

File Import

ModelMaker can import the following file types:

  • TB4
  • JPG
  • PNG
  • BMP
  • TIF
  • GIF

NOTE: Aside from the TB4 file format, all other file types listed above can only be imported as skins, or patterns, to customize model surfaces. These can be imported using the Pallette tool. 

File Export

ModelMaker can export both 3D data and nets in the native TB4 file format. 

ModelMaker can also export the 3D data only in STL format, or nets only in an SVG format.
