Silhouette Cameo Blade Settings

I made a printable pdf that you can print on 8-1/2 x 11 (landscape), cut it out and tape it right inside the lid of of your Silhouette Cameo for the blade settings for various materials.  I don't get credit for all this wonderful information.  I got the information from Doodling Debbie on the Silhouette Plus messageboard.  There is so much information over there, if you haven't already, sign up.  It's a great environment if you have questions, need inspiration and/or just want to share your creations.

 I just took her list and made it into something that would fit into my Cameo for easy access.  You can get the pdf here.  Isn't it fun to know that you CAN cut foam, Chipboard, Shrink Plastic!!   Have fun Ladies!!

  3. Why is foam on there twice, but only once does it say it needs to be double cut? Thanks for your list!

  4. Shay if you're doing anything more than a simple shape it needs to be cut twice. If you're just cutting a circle or a heart, one pass is normally enough.

  5. Lorrie, thanks so much for this list. Is it ok to post a link to it in our Silhouette Fanatics group over at Stamptv (if it's not already posted, that is)? I really would like to share this wonderful info. Let me know. Have a great Friday!

  7. Hi I use my cameo to cut shrink plastic. I've been using the above settings. I've owned or a week and have cut through two mats. If I use the ratchet tool and reduce to 9 it does not cut all th way through. Any suggestions? Ty

  12. I cannot get these settings to work for the shrink plastic. I actually set mine to these settings plus dbl cut AND ran it through twice. (that equals 4 cuts!) Not even enough that I can punch out with the help of an exacto knife. :(
