Pro Well-rounded kit, ready to use out of the box
The starter pack contains all the products required to experiment with sign vinyl and heat transfer vinyl, and it is an excellent solution for those that want something that's ready to work with straight out of the box.
Pro User-friendly, free software
This vinyl cutter comes with a free copy of Silhouette Studio software. This software is a great tool for taking the first steps in vinyl cutting. Its user interface is clear and simple. The main functions (shape drawing, exporting, and cutting) have their own separate toolbars. It's also very good for experimenting and trying out new cutting parameters.
Pro Can adjust the blade automatically
After the blade depth is initially calibrated, using the Silhouette Studio software, the cutter will automatically adjust it, if needed. This can significantly reduce the machine preparation time and also allows for fast switching between different materials.
Pro Can be used wirelessly
It's capable of data communication using a standard Bluetooth communication protocol. No USB cables are required whatsoever, allowing it to be placed/used wherever you'd like.
Con Not very precise
The Z axis of this machine is not accurate enough to cut vinyl thinner than 3 mils. This is a typical downside of almost any vinyl cutting machine with a stepper motor controlled Z axis.
Con Can't do complicated cuts
Due to the absence of the overcut feature, the Silhouette CAMEO 3 will also struggle to follow complicated curves.
