This beginner tutorial will walk you through the set up process.

Silhouette Studio Software for Graphtec CE Lite

With the release of Silhouette Studio V4.3 came the option and ability to cut directly to Graphtec CE Lite - a 20" cutting machine that's 7x faster than the CAMEO 3 and 4x faster than the CAMEO 4.

To download the Silhouette software for the first time, or update your version of Silhouette Studio, go to the Silhouette America software page. You must download V4.3.254 or later and then install it on your computer to have CE Lite cutting abilities. This same software will also run all of the Silhouette cutting machines.

The basic free version of the Silhouette software will work to operate the CE Lite, but if you want a one time paid upgrade to unlock additional features, like open SVGs, you can purchase an upgrade.

The lowest price Silhouette Studio software upgrades are typically found at Swing Design - they also come with a free digital guide to help you learn how to use the features.


Once the software is downloaded and installed on your computer you will not see the CE Lite options until you plug in and power on the 20" Graphtec machine.

Setting Up Graphtec CE Lite to Connect to Silhouette Studio

Start by connecting and powering on the Graphtec machine and connecting it, by USB, to the computer.

Once you do this you should see it in your Silhouette Studio software both on the Page Setup Panel and in the Send Panel.

Before your machine and software can fully communicate, there's one menu option you need to change on the Graphtec from the machine's touch panel.

Go to the Menu then click "Interface" then "GP-GL".  You can then back out of the menu by clicking "X" and return to the home screen of the touch panel.

  1. من المهم جداً معالجة التسرب المائي لأنّه يتسبب في ضعف وتَفتت الباطون ممّا يؤدي إلى انهياره، وتآكل الحديد أو أي هيكلٍ معدني، ويسبب أيضاً انفصال الجدران عن البناء، وتشويه المنظر العام بظهور البقع الصفراء على السطح الخارجي، ونمو البكتيريا والطحالب، وتلف البلاط بانفصاله عن الأرضيات، وتلف وتشويه الدّهان والطّلاء الدّاخلي للجدار، وبعد التّعرف على سلبيات التّسرب المائي سنجد أن أكثر الأماكن التي تعاني من هذه المشكلة هي الحمامات.

  3. The cutter switches to Pen although I have blade selected in the silhouette studio software as well as the cutter. Have you seen this issue?

    1. I've had this exact same issue. I've even manually changed it on the machine to the blade and the software switches it back to pen. I couldn't figure out why I couldn't cut something as thin as paper and realized that's what was going on.
