Cricut Cutter?

Anyone here found a way to incorporate a digital cutter into his/her workflow, such as the Cricut or the RoboCutter? If so, how did it work?

I use mine a lot. Especially when in need a bunch of wheel discs or track parts. I just wish it would make very small parts. The edges get choppy if too small.

Thanks for the info. Can you program it to actually cut out a printed paper model, or just generic parts of the same color stock?

I create all my designs on a Craft Robo.
100% of my income comes from the designs I make, cut out and glue to make: 3D Sculptures, Pop-Up Cards, Mechanicals, Pop-Up Books.

I have cut out a printed model. I use Sure Cuts A Lot and it will let you import any vector design. Not easy but it will work.
