Silhouette Cameo 3: A Quick Summary

Before we jump into a bit of a summary about this best selling cutting machine, here is a quick video by Silhouette when they released the Cameo 3 back in 2016.

The Silhouette Cameo 3 is the ultimate DIY cutting machine. It is a formidable contender to the Cricut Explore Air 2 and a great step up from the popular Cameo 2.

The Cameo Silhouette 3 includes all of our favorite features of the Cameo 2 but comes with the bonus of dual carriages, Bluetooth functionality as well as some upgrades to the Silhouette studio.

The Cameo 3 Silhouette has the ability to draw and cut on over 100 different types of material and we love that it can cut material that has a width of up to 12 inches by a crazy 10 feet long.

We love our Cameo 3 and it is one of the best selling machines from our affiliate links on our website as well.
