How to Cut Vinyl Rolls of All Sizes with CAMEO 4 Pro

The Silhouette CAMEO 4 Pro can cut rolls and sheets of material between 9" and 24" wide.

In order to cut various size materials you simply need to move the roller along the roller bar. If you are using the roll feeder a quick adjustment allows the machine to accommodate 9", 12" 15", 20" and 24" size vinyl rolls. 
Let’s say we are cutting a 12"roll of vinyl on the 24" Silhouette CAMEO 4. Flip the roller bar lever down to lift the roller bar.

Slide the roller to the left to line it up with the 12" inch mark. Flip the roller bar lever back up to lock the roller in place.

Build the roll feeder like you normally would as described in this Silhouette CAMEO 4 Pro setup tutorial.  

Position the center piece so it’s about 12 inches from the left side piece.

Place the 12" roll into the roll feeder and then finish adjusting the roll feeder piece so that it’s snug against the roll.

Now you can feed in the end of the vinyl roll.

If you need to cut a 15" or 20" sheet of HTV, for example, you would simply move the roller to the right and move the roll feeder to the right so that it fits appropriate size roll.
