Choosing between the best Brother ScanNCut digital craft machines can be a little bewildering, as they can do so much but all look a little the same. The main thing you need to understand is these machines can cut, score, emboss, draw on and be used with hundreds of materials but fundamentally they have a built-in scanner and LCD display for an all-in-one approach to modern crafting and DIY.

Brother ScanNCut craft machines are a unique product, and are popular amongst all kinds of crafters. Original models started with 'CM' in some countries, and there has since been a lot of changes and upgrades to models. The SDX range has Auto Blade technology, so the machine works out what material is being used, and cuts accordingly – saving a lot of hassle and fuss!
