About the Silhouette CAMEO 3

CraftDirect offers Silhouette products that will make your crafting projects wonderful and it's no exception with the Silhouette CAMEO® electronic cutting system. It's a lightweight cutting machine that is easy to use and allows for endless potential in your craft projects. CAMEO machines have a great reputation of user-friendly technology. The Silhouette CAMEO 3 is here and it's amazing.

You will love the sleek new look of the CAMEO 3. It's more streamlined in its design and offers a few new features, like an LCD touch screen display, slide cutter, dual carriage (meaning it can simultaneously cut and draw, use sketch pens to draw), and last but not least, a self-adjusting blade.

How to Use Your Silhouette CAMEO Machine

silhouette cameo 3 machineA Silhouette CAMEO is sort of a large machine, which cuts letters and shapes out of cardstock, fabric, leather, vellum, Silhouette vinyl, and many other materials. The set up for this machine is easy; all you have to do is connect it to your computer and your printer and follow the prompts. One of the beauties of the Silhouette CAMEO 3 electronic cutting system is that it uses software instead of cartridges or dies so staying organized is so much easier.

For most projects, you will need Silhouette tools so that you can remove your material from your CAMEO mat and apply it to your project without compromising the edges of the material. Remember that your Silhouette blade is maybe the most important component of your CAMEO machine, so keep it sharp.

The CAMEO vs. the Portrait

Each of these machines is an electronic die cutter that works off software but they are very different in terms of features and size. The CAMEO system can cut material that is 12" wide by 10' long. The Portrait however, can only fit 8" wide by 10' long. If you travel a lot, a Portrait is a great option because it is more compact. It is also cheaper. The CAMEO is a better bang for your buck though, because of all the features. The Portrait doesn't have dual carriage, it doesn't have an LCD touch screen, it doesn't have the auto-adjusting blade, etc.
