Useful Thread on Cameo cutting machines

Postby dkightley » Wed Jan 20, 2016 11:03 am

I've spotted a very useful thread on RMWeb all about using the Cameo cutting machines for modelling....and thought I'd give a link to it:

Looks interesting! This would be useful for cutting coach sides, buildings etc
I wonder how accurate it can cut, so if you put in a pre-printed coach sides, how well would it cut around the edge?
Could be fun to play with!

Both ivanf and myself have both tested cutting out windows for inserting into window apertures in 3D printed buildings. It works okay....but is very fiddly.

There seems to be two machines , the cameo and portrait models. The portrait is slightly smaller but price wise the Cameo is £270 and the Portrait is £125, quite a difference.

No endorsement for either of these machines....but here's a clip from their brochure showing the differences between the two machines:
