I’ve been watching speculation in the tech world about this tool for months, and am thrilled that Google recently released their AutoDraw experiment. Let me tell you, if you aren’t an artist – this is for you. Google AutoDraw is a machine led tool that recognizes what you are drawing as you draw it and turns your doodle into something – recognizable! It’s free and works on phones, tablets, and computers. Let’s take a look at how to use this up and coming technology to make cut files for Silhouette or Cricut:
