Silhouette CAMEO 3 vs Silhouette CAMEO 4 Speed (Side by Side Video)

One of the big advantages of the Silhouette CAMEO 4 vs CAMEO 3 is the speed.

The Silhouette CAMEO 4 will be able to cut up to 3x faster than the CAMEO 3.

There are actually two measures of cutting speed on the Silhouette CAMEO machines: Speed and Acceleration.

The speed is how fast the machine can cut when it's cutting in a straight line.  Acceleration is how fast the machine can move when it needs to make a turn or change direction.

When considered together on an average cut, the speed of the CAMEO 4 is about three times faster than the CAMEO 3.

But what does that look like? We put the new Silhouette CAMEO next to the older model to show you a comparison. The CAMEO 3 - on the bottom - is cutting at a speed of 10. That's the max speed for the die cutting machine.

It's worth pointing out the increased speed settings on the CAMEO 4 will only be accessible when certain materials - such as vinyl and HTV - are selected in the Send panel.
