What About .Studio Files?
Before .studio3 files, Silhouette Studio files were saved as .studio files. .Studio is not used anymore.
Why Would You Need to Convert .Studio3 to .SVG?
Since .Studio3 files can only be used in Silhouette Studio, you would need to convert your .studio3 file to use in other programs like Adobe Illustrator.
You would also want to convert your .studio3 to .svg if you wanted to sell a design made in Silhouette Studio. .Studio3 files are proprietary and cannot be sold. I’ve written an article about selling SVG files.

For a few layered designs, it didn’t work as well. Ideas R Us does have a list of known issues.
Save as an SVG in Silhouette Studio
You can prevent the need to convert files by saving your design as an SVG right in Silhouette Studio. Pick up a copy of Silhouette Studio Business Edition. It allows you to save as an SVG.
If you need complex .studio3 files saved as an SVG, use my Inkscape tutorial.
