The Silhouette Cameo 4 is the most featured packed Cameo to date and now offers the user a 3mm clearance to use thicker materials than ever before.
Cutting Width: 12"
The Cameo 4 utilises the space used as a tool storage compartment in the Cameo 3 to house a roll feeder doing away with having to purchase the external roll feeder often sold alongside the Cameo 3.
On the rear of the machine there is an in-built cross cutter with media clamp which will give you a clean straight cut every time.
The Silhouette Cameo 4 now features a unique high force tool holder along with the new high-speed tool holder in the tool 1 position (max cut speed of up to 30cm per second).
The Cameo 4 utilises a revolutionary tangential rack on its Z axis (Up & Down) enabling the high force head to utilise new tools like the Rotary Blade for fabrics or the fabulous Kraft Blade for thick materials.
• Tool Holder 1: For Speed & Accuracy (Autoblade | All Ratchet Blades | Deep-Cut Blade | Sketch Pen & Pen Holder | 3rd Party Tools)
• Tool Holder 2: For Higher Force Requirements (Punch Tool | Rotary Blade | Kraft Blade)
> When the machine is not being used there is a slide out lid to keep the internals clean and protected.
> The Silhouette Cameo 4 also allows the user to die-cut through materials without the need for a mat. The tool head is offset and that matched with the grooved cutting strip allows the machine to cut through materials without the need to apply the media to a carrier sheet first.
There are a few possible reasons for a print misalignment, please refer to this link for more info and solutions.
The Silhouette machines require Bluetooth 4.0 and not all laptop or PCs support Bluetooth 4.0, many only support older versions. You can find more info on Bluetooth requirements and optional Bluetooth adapters at this link.
With a good blade, you should be able to cut standard copier paper mounted on a cutting mat with a blade set to 1 and force set to 10. If more blade or force is required, then it is normally a sign that the blade tip has chipped or started to wear.
Whilst the auto-blades are a general-purpose blade that can be used to cut lots of different materials, for repeat cutting of vinyl and heat transfer materials, we find the manual/ratchet blades more suitable as they give more blade control and a more consistent cut.
If the software crashes, or fails to shutdown correctly, it can lead to a corrupt preference file which can then cause the software or cutter to function incorrectly. If this happens, we’d recommend resetting the software back to factory defaults. Open the Silhouette Studio software, go to the Edit menu > Preferences > Advanced, click the ‘Restore Factory Defaults’ button, click continue and then close & restart the software.
