Design Constraints

Maximum material dimensions: When designing graphics for the Cameo cutter, keep in mind that it can only cut to a maximum width of 300mm. For vinyl which comes in rolls, the maximum width of 300mm still applies but longer graphics can be cut in one job (1m for best results).

Material depth is a maximum of 3mm if a 3mm Kraft blade is available to use.
