Notes

  • The Silhouette can cut paper and vinyl, and with a special blade, fabric. (More info.)
  • The cutting mats are sticky so the material you are cutting will adhere to it. If they lose their stickiness, just wash with dish soap and allow to air dry.
  • You can use the Silhouette Studio software (Mac OS X & Windows) to design things, but it can also import DXF files, which you can export from Inkscape, Adobe Illustrator, or CorelDraw.
  • You can cut things via a computer and USB cable if you use Silhouette Studio, or via an SD card with your files on it. (The SD card is a little bit more tricky.)
  • Remember that if you are cutting vinyl to use for screen printing (involving sticking the vinyl on the bottom of the screen) you need to reverse your image! Use the 'Flip Horizontally' command under the 'Object → Transform' menu.
