2D Design with Silhouette Studio and Silhouette Cameo

Silhouette Studio Software is a free vector-based design software that allows you to prepare designs to be cut on the Silhouette Cameo paper/vinyl cutting machine. It can be accessed as a free download on Silhouette America website.

The Silhouette Cameo Paper/Vinyl Cutting Machine can cut thin materials, including cardstock (blade=3-4), fabric (blade=8-10), vinyl (blade=1), heat press vinyl (blade=1), and craft foam (blade=10). As you are using the Silhouette Cameo machine, remember that you must input your material type in Silhouette Studio’s “SEND” menu and you must manually adjust the Silhouette Cameo’s blade to correspond with the blade depth needed for your chosen material/media.

We’ve listed some basic tutorial videos below but you can learn more about the tools at the Silhouette Studio YouTube Channel or the Official Silhouette Blog.
