Hello everyone, I introduce myself, I'm Pedro, I've been using the cameo 3 plotter for over a year now, and to date very well and easy to use, I use it for sponsoring windows and some other ideas.

Upgrade and stickit1 use what is called a Gerber Machine. 20k for their chrome decals. Regular decals are printed on vinyl wrap media.

I have a US cuter sc25. If you are just looking to do window masks you can get by with an MH series.

Default USCutter vs Cameo3

I have narrowed down my purchase to the cameo 3 or the US Cutter SC25 I am planning on using a Mac so I can't use vinyl master and have to get the other us cutter software. It seems the software that comes with the cameo is compatable with both. Will I be at a disadvantage in the printing world using a Mac vs a Windows device? Also does the SC25 do more than the Cameo? I will be doing RC masking/stencils and stickers and may get into tshirts. Any guidance appreciated.

I have a mid 2015 MacBook Pro and use the scal 5 pro software (Sure Cuts A lot 5 Pro) with my SC 25" plotter. I started out w/ scal 3 pro back in early 2016. The only issue I had was when I updated to Catalina, but scal has fixed the issue soon after the update. Works flawlessly for me. The sc plotter is way much better than the Cameo imho, and yes it does more. If you get the sc make sure to get the stand for it as it has rollers so you can buy rolls of vinyl. For masking I use ORACAL white 631 indoor vinyl. Works out perfect.

If you supply the templates we can print them in full color and ship to you at a very affordable price. Hit us up on Facebook at @CobbCompany or you can get more information at cobbcotechhobby.com. Our printer/cutter is the state of the art model from Roland and the color quality is insane so we can do full-color spectrum prints and get full vibrant colors including orange.

Default I own a silhouette cameo (Vinyl cutter +) and can cut for you

Hello Everyone, my boyfriend recently got me into painting his RC bodies for him. I have a Silhouette Cameo and can cut for you, if you need someone to help you out just hollar! I am very experienced with my machine and the design studio that comes with the silhouette cameo allows me to create designs of any sort at the touch of a button. I am very creative and enjoy doing this kind of stuff. I can create literally anything (logos, stencils, stickers, you name it) just give me an idea of what you are going for or if you have already the deign thats even easier. Just email me your blueprints, I can convert literally any picture into a cut file in my studio. I offer my assistance because I couldn't imagine trying to do this without my cutter (it is much more than a cutter it draws to and can cut just about any kind of material you can think of from magnet material to foil and cork board) so just thought I would reach out to the community! If it wasn't for this forum I would have been beyond lost as to how to paint and handle the RC bodies I have done, so it is the least I can do to show my appreciation. Thanks for all the help and tips! - Cheers

How you make printed stickers? If so what was your method?

I recently purchased a Silhouette Cameo 4. Which vinyl should I use for decals on the outside of the body? What about paint masks?

Thank you.
