Title: Silhouette Cameo
Post by: Laurianne on October 23, 2011, 05:43:46 PM
I am thinking about buying the new Silhouette Cameo. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

It's a great machine.  It depends on how you want to use it.  I did talk to Leo @ Sure Cuts Alot to see if it would use their program like the Silhouette SD.  He didn't seem to think at that time it would, but it had not been released yet.  Leo State that he feared they may be going the way that Provo  Craft did since they want to promote their own software and files.  He mentioned to me that the new Sizzix Eclips would be a good machine.  It will have it's own stand along Sure Cuts Alot by the end of this month.  I, too would welcome any suggestions since I'm lookeing to replace a Cricut Expression.  Thanks

I had been told, thru e-mail, from Silhouette, that it's not compatible with SCAL and possibly MTC ...not sure about that ....so that's why I basically backed off from purchasing a Silhouette SD or the Cameo....will stick with Expression.  Too bad that Silhouette wants to 'stick' with their software...they're lose out like Provo Craft is doing.

I currently own a Silhouette SD and like it. I wanted to get something that would cut 12 inches.

Silhouette Designer version already allows svg import.  It is as simple as dragging an svg off the desktop.  I thought normally what happened was that SCAL and MTC organised writing drivers to allow their programs to work to work on the Silhouette.
 
The Silhouette is not a cartridge based cutter so I don't think the same problem is likely to arrise as with ProvoCraft.   MTC already works with the Silhouette SD.   Does anyone know how that was accomplished?  It might be worth asking Andy whether or not it is likely to happen for the new Studio software.

I thought the Eclips was looking good and I had heard last year on the grapevine (actually Sizzix) that they were thinking in the future they may provide/allow other software to be used in conjunction with the Eclips.  I see that they are going to use SCAL which sadly I think is not a very strong program (as yet).

Here is a You Tube video from a Cameo owner starting from Unpacking to actually doing a cut, and there are some good tips as well. For me its a No Brainer I can open SVG files using the designer software or use Inkscape to open any SVG file and export as a PNG file to open using the normal studio software.

Judge for yourself:  http://www.youtube.com/embed/Po3dRIuk9Ns (http://www.youtube.com/embed/Po3dRIuk9Ns)

and here is a link for the Silhouette Blog: http://blog.silhouetteamerica.com/ (http://blog.silhouetteamerica.com/) go back a couple of pages and see the fabric cutting...

And I have recently learnt from another Silhouette forum that the New Blade attachment for the Cameo can be used on the SD silhouette model (as this was her example) and she reckoned that she cut 300gsm card with 1 CUT!!!!!! and because she is UK based I will be asking her where she got her New Blade attachment.....

That is very interesting Angela.  I wonder if it will work in the version before the SD?

Post by: Angel13 on October 24, 2011, 08:04:26 AM
Hi Technomum

I have just left the other forum asking for info as too where she purchased the New Blade attachment, because the blade system for the grey silhouette is the same as the SD and I'm quite willing to purchase and test; not that it will prevent me from buying my Cameo.........

This was just posted on Facebook by SVG Cuts...ATTN: future Silhouette Cameo owners - We don't have the machine yet, but we are testing the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software (with SVG support). So far the files that we CAN import are cutting beautifully with our SD, but the software is still a bit iffy as some of the files just don't import. We are working with Silhouette to get it all figured out! We have also been informed that the Silhouette Cameo does NOT work with SCAL 3 at this time. We don't really know if it will work with SCAL in the future.

Hi Mz Daisy, I think Leo said the SVG import was minor. The imported file did not turn up on the centre of the page and you had to scroll down to find it. They have reported the problem to Silhouette. As it is a new program I am sure they will fix any bugs.

As to SCAL and MTC working with the Cameo, if the driver information is not locked programmers will be able to access the information and write programs or plug-ins to cut from their software to the Cameo if they wish. I think Silhouette are just being cautious and not stating it will work with 3rd party programs. I guess if they did and there was a problem with the 3rd party software they would recieve many complaints. I think it is a case of 'lets wait and see what happens'.

Obviously Inkscape is my program of choice and if I wish not to learn a new program I can design in Inkscape and just use the Cameo software to do the cutting. At the moment I use Sign Cut for the cutting so to me there is not much difference.

I don't see another PC fiasco happening over the software for any of the companies because the cutter manufacturers are working with MTC or SCAL to make sure they work well with them.

Laurianne, you must ask yourself, "Self, will I make lots of cuts larger than 8"?"  If you can answer yourself with a "YES!", then you NEED the Cameo.   ;)
Title: Re: Silhouette Cameo
Post by: Technomum on October 31, 2011, 06:35:42 AM
I have the Designer Version and I have had absolutely no trouble with opening svg's. I have never had one fail. They do come in a bit larger than the original but as long as they are grouped when you adjust the size it should not be any trouble.

I think it is still early days and there are more things to come.  One being the ability to export as a vector pdf (as is possible with the old RM).  It is on the list but I don't think it has priority at the moment.  I love the eraser and the knife - they are really useful.  I would like to see Object to Path as a priority but even though it is on the list, no timescale has been attributed to its inclusion.  

Like Carolyn, I am an Inkscape addict and I like the way Silhouette have provided direct import of svgs rather than via some other software.   I was very disappointed to see the Eclips is going to use SCAL to import SVG's.   The Eclips looked promising until that time. Re the Cameo.  I think the size may not be as important as the fact that is will cut 300gsm card.  To me that was the biggest plus but I am not a scrapbooker and so rarely cut a full 12" template.

Well done.  You must give us a review when you have played a while.   They are not yet available in the UK (as far as I know) but will be around the $500 mark (£300).  As I have two cutters already I am dithering about committing myself.

Quote:  "If you are using Windows, you can use the CraftROBO option as your cutter and it should cut with a Silhouette CAMEO ok."

 I would love to hear from anyone who has purchased the Cameo if they have tried cutting choosing the CraftROBO and how it worked for them.

My neighbour has her Cameo and is absolutely delighted.   She used a Silhouette SD before that but felt the frustration that most of us do - the inability to cut anything more than very lightweight card.  She tells me she cut glitter card yesterday!!!  Not something I would do because of the wear on the blade and she has cut everything she has in her stash.  She does not use chipboard.  So all is looking good.   If it were not for the fact her OH has a nasty bug I would have visited to try it out.  So perhaps next week I will be able to tell you what I think.

Post by: Laurianne on November 11, 2011, 03:21:45 PM
Butterfly,

I did not have a Cricut. I had the Craft Robo which is pretty much the same as the little Silhouette. So there was not much of a learning curve. Between the new machine and updated software, it is so easy to use. I still may get the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition so that I can import my SVGs. I haven't decided if I need to do that or not.

Well Butterfly I may have my Cameo, but I've yet too get it going because my wireless internet connection to the XP PC was not working correctly, so I phoned up my Broadband service provider; and half an hour later I was connected and I followed his instructions to download the deskhelp software and now I don't have internet access.........and yes I have restarted the PC and nothing again. So now I need to step away from the XP PC and return to my Vista PC and finish designing my Christmas file, or there may be a PC breakage accident when I drop it out of my window on the 2nd floor.........

Here is my Cameo update: I've been spending a lot of time in my craft room and I'm sure I have already put more hours on my Cameo than I ever did my Craft Robo the entire time I've owned it! I love it.
I am having one issue though and wonder if any other Cameo owners have run across this problem. I am cutting paper "shingles" for the roof of a dollhouse my hubby is making for our 3 little princesses. The shingles are 1 inch tall and I am cutting them out in 12 inch rows. So, I can get 11 or 12 rows in a 12 X 12 sheet of paper. It ends up to be a lot of cutting. The problem I am having is that the Cameo sometimes stops in the middle of the project and won't start again. If I try to start it, it won't start in the same place so ruins the row of shingles. Occasionally when it stops, it goes back to "home", cutting across the page as it goes which ruins the whole page.
I contacted the company regarding this issue and they told me to slow it down and make sure there are no other objects outside of the cutting area. I did this. However, I find the only way to make sure I don't have a problem is to have it cut one row at a time.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Title: Re: Silhouette Cameo

Hi Laurianne

This is advice that I lifted from a US silhouette forum that I belong too:This was the advice that the person was sent by SilhouetteAmerica..


I’m following up regarding the issue with the image stopping mid-cut for the file you sent. Could you please try the following:

1. Open Silhouette Studio

2. Go to the File menu

3. Go to Preferences

4. Go to Advanced

5. Under “Packet Size” select “1000 bytes”

6. Try your job again

7. If still stopping, repeat the above steps and adjust “Packet Size” to “500 bytes”

I just got the Silhouette Cameo and love it.  I also got the designer software.  It was easier to use than I thought it would be.  I had already learned alot of the functions through Inkscape.  Yes, it does work with Sure Cuts Alot 3.  I'm so glad I sold my Cricut.  The Cameo can do so much more and is not so expensive to get cutting files.  It's nice to have the freedom of designing files, too.

Hi Sandra

I don't have the Cameo Designer Edition for my SVG's because I find that when I follow this pictorial: http://www.inkscapecuttingdesign.com/smf/index.php?topic=733.0 my SVG's are exported as PNG's that can be traced in studio and are exactly the same size as they were designed in Inkscape...

Or it could be as advised on the Yahoo Silhouette group, that you may have forgotten to set the cut lines.......

Hi Sandra,

I am sorry I have not been here for a few days and so missed your post.

I use Studio Designer  as  you have quoted.  I usually drag my svgs in from the desktop and whilst they come in a little large it is easily remedied by resizing whilst grouped. I can only think you may need to make sure you have clicked on the scissors icon which will tell you whether or not you have cut lines in place.  If not, select which type you want from the options.  I think this tends to happen when the svgs come in as coloured templates rather than with an outline.

If you want (or can) post a file here I will have a look at it to see if there is anything irregular which may be causing a problem.

Greetings!
So, I've read that I should be able to cut on my Cameo directly from Inkscape.
I am unable to do this, even though Inkscape lists the Cameo on the Print Options dialog window, when I "click" on it, to set as default printer, I receive the Error Message: "Silhouette CAMEO is not installed"
Any input?
Thanks in Advance.

Hi barguybrady

Unfortunately when the Silhouette Cameo came along the software was such that you could never cut straight from inkcape to the Cameo machine, unlike if you had the 2nd generation silhouette machine that used a completely different software from the silhouette studio software in use now.

I have the 1st generation Cameo silhouette, that I don't use as often as my 2nd generation original silhouette machine with the software that can cut straight from Inkscape in an SVG format.

Hopefully this has answered your query........I have heard and seen great things regarding the latest cameo and studio designer software.

Post by: HeatherM on November 25, 2014, 09:02:06 PM
You can save your files as dxf in Inkscape and open them in Design Studio.  Any curves in dxf have way too many nodes, but DS seems to do a pretty decent job of simplifying them.
