Full Specification

More Powerful Motor in Dual Carriage

The dual carriage on the Cameo 4 packs quite the punch now. The primary tool chamber is the chamber you are more familiar with. It has a standard force setting of up to 210 gf, allowing you to cut basic material types. The secondary chamber provides increased force of up to 5 kgf used with select specialty tools for material types that require either special care or more force to be cut.

Auto Tool Detection

Auto Tool Detect is a feature that all the Cameo 4 machines have, and it allows the Silhouette Studio® software to automatically detect what tools are inserted into your machine. This ensures you have the right cut settings every time.

Storage Compartment

Store an extra blade in the handy storage compartment on the side of your machine. Simply slide it to the left, place your tool inside, and slide it back into place.

Adjustable Rollers

By adjusting the white rollers on the main roller shaft, the Silhouette Cameo® 4 can cut the following media sizes: A4, letter, 12 inches, and 13 inches (which is what you’ll use to cut materials on a 12 by 12 cutting mat). The spring rollers have been designed for a strong yet gentle way to hold project materials in place.

Simplified Touch Panel

The Cameo 4 uses a simplified touch panel to load and unload your material as well as move the cutting mat or the position of the tools or connect Bluetooth®.

Bluetooth® Connectivity

The Cameo 4 has a Bluetooth® adapter preinstalled and is Bluetooth® compatible. This means that your Cameo 4 can receive cut jobs via Bluetooth without a connection to a USB cord. , so it allows for wireless communication.
Built-in Roll Feeder
Built-in Crosscut

Built-in Roll Feeder and Crosscutter

Having a roll feeder and crosscutter built in to your Cameo 4 makes cutting rolled materials really simple. The roll feeder slides out from a tray located on the bottom of the machine and folds out. It can hold both 9-inch rolls and 12-inch rolls (with a maximum roll diameter of 3 inches).

The back of the machine houses the crosscutter. After you’ve cut your material, all you need to do is unlock the crosscutter and slide the crosscutter blade along the track of the crosscutter cartridge.
