Cricut Design Space – Using Solid Score Lines

As of November 2018, we’ve started including solid score line versions of each project. These special versions are made especially for cutting machines that have scoring abilities such as the Cricut Maker, Cricut Explore and Sizzix eclips2. We’re sure that more machines with this capability will follow suit in the future. 

In the video below, we’ll cover:

  • Identifying and locating Solid Score Line versions of our projects
  • Importing SVG files
  • Working with layers
  • Selecting score line layers
  • Changing Line Type to Score
  • Attaching Files

    Can you please add the solid score lines to the butterfly box, i can’t see where you added them in the file. i have the Maker. The file does not have a extra group listed

      Make sure you have a score tool installed in your machine and set the score layer to score per the video. If you need additional help, please email us using the contact form and we’ll get you taken care of!

    I just downloaded the orchid gift card box and the score lines are on the mats by themselves. How do I fix that? I have the Cricut Maker. On other projects that I have had score lines, they were not on separate mats and the machine prompted when it was time to put my score tool in.

    Y’all are the best. Beautiful, intricate designs, detailed instruction, available help & support. I love your artwork, website, customer service, and business model. I always feel inspired after browsing your site. Thanks!

    Possibly a dumb question—but the score lines are still scoring dashed (using the single score line file, Maker with the scoring wheel). WHAT am I doing wrong? Thank you!

      Hi Tara! Not all of our files have the solid score line options. We started offering this in November of 2018. It sounds like you are using the files in the main SVG folder which are dashed score lines. If the file contains a solid score line option it would be in the Extras Folder and then in the Solid Score Line folder and the files would start with ss_. Hope this helps!

    Hello. How can I change to solid score lines if the file is older than November 2018 and does not have the SS_file in an extra folder. Is it even possible? I am trying to make the wonderland castle and it feels like the dashes for over 20 mats are taking forever!
    Thank you for answering dumb questions 😉

    • Mike says:

      Hi Silvia. There is not an easy way to just convert the dashed score lines into a solid score line. The file would need to be re-designed. With that being said, we recommend using the dashed score lines (even if solid is available) on all 3D objects as you will have more accurate results. Hope this helps!

      You can, but I personally don’t recommend using it on our 3D projects. I’d recommend letting your machine cut the standard non ss files. I’d reserve the score tool for envelopes and card centers only.
