How do I pull up a FCM file to make changes?

Asked by Patricia on 2017-06-21

I have a FMC file that I want to add to but I can't seem to pull up the file in Inkscape. I have a Scan N Cut and when you create a file there it is FMC. I would like to make changes to it in Inkscape but can't seem to find the correct line to import the file. TIA

Hi Patricia,

what is an FMC file?... Ah, it's .fcm... (google helped):

"In order to cut SVG files with this machine, you'll need to login to the ScanNCut Canvas website, open your file and convert it to a proprietary .FMC format which you then transfer to a USB flash drive that plugs into the ScanNCut for cutting. Let's take a look at the steps involved in cutting SVG files in further detail."

There seems to be an online convertor, though - but I didn't test, don't know if it's malware, or any good. Search for "fcm file to SVG" on google. The disadvantages of proprietary file formats...

If you want to make a feature request for Inkscape reading FCM files, please post it on the bug tracker here:

Good luck!
