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”

Oh Angela, thank you sooooo much! I made the change and it has worked perfectly since. You have saved me so much time. I am not sure why I was not told this when I called the company. Anyway, thanks again!

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.

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 have gobs of Angela's files from craftsuprint in SVG.

I did a search of the site to find out how to open svg files in Silhouette Designer Version.  I am doing something wrong because it opens without a problem but then I can't cut it.  Could you help please?  I just got a Cameo and am used to using Inkscape but not Designer Version.  How can I design on Inkscape and open the file on Silhouette Designer Version?

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.......

Hope it's okay to post a link...
This tut from Michelle's Adventures helped me a lot. I couldn't get it to work either until I found her blog.  Don't ask me how it works.. but it does.  Note: if you skip the part where you add to your library.. it won't work. You can ask me how I know that. :-)

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.
B

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.

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.
