Silhouette Software 

Silhouette Cameo
 Working With Your Cameo Or Portrait

With your Silhouette Cameo or Silhouette Portrait machine you get the standard Silhouette Studio software.

It's a great piece of design software, easy and intuitive to use and for the majority of users it has all the features required to get the most out of your Silhouette machine.

If you need additional features, eg importing a specific file type or controlling multiple Silhouette machines, then there are a range of upgrades available to increase the functionality.

Alternatively if you already design artwork in Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator then you don't even have to use Silhouette Studio, you can just get the Silhouette Connect plug-in.

 Silhouette Studio

Silhouette Studio® is a robust, free design software that gives makers the freedom to imagine, design, and create unique craft projects. With dozens of design tools and easy integration with Silhouette cutting machines, Silhouette Studio® is the ultimate tool for crafters who want to make their own unique, personalized projects.

You have full creative control so you can customise designs, create projects that meet your needs, and use the perfect cut settings for your materials.

Silhouette Studio® gives beginners a smooth introduction to designing and offers all of the tools seasoned designers are familiar with. Easy navigation and quick integration with your Silhouette cutting machine makes the design process a breeze.

But the software options don't stop there as upgrades are available.
