How not to use a Cameo 4

I was kind of hoping today’s blog post would be showing how to use a Cameo 4 to cut minky but I’ve ended up only spending a few minutes playing with it so far. All I’ve learned is that it does have a lot more pressure than previous Cameos. I just have to find the happy medium between “doesn’t quite cut the fabric” and “cuts through its own cutting mat.”

Things are slightly complicated by Silhouette Studio not wanting to run under wine and so I either need to figure out how to run it under Linux, or borrowing one of the Windows machines to try it out. I eventually will operate it out of Inkscape with fablabnbg’s Inkscape extension, but clearly that’s going to take a little more experimentation, and I’d like to see what the official software can do.
