I have to say that I love my Cameo and have used it a lot for many years. The software was pretty easy to get used to for me. I didn’t have any of experience with Corel and used Illustrator pretty long ago, but editing vectors came back to me. If you opt for the Designer Edition, (ugh, nickel and dime as usual) it can import SVGs and editing of the line color to set different cut parameters. When I do decals, I like to kiss cut the design and then set it to cut the bounding box all the way through. Just remember to set the color of the cut line - many SVGs seem to import with no color and could look like they won’t cut. I learned that the hard way with lots of cussing in the past.
Speaking of cussing, If you use the “Print & Cut” feature, leave a little more room around the cross hatched area shown on the software. I have tried to place things too close. Even though not overlapping that area, I’ve gotten mis aligned cuts. Wasted whole sheets trying to squeeze one more item on the sheet. Since I’ve backed off of that, I’ve had little to no problems with mis aligned cuts.
Lastly, the machine will eat through the Silhouette blades. Search Graphtec CB09 blades and holders. They take a little fiddling with to set the cut depth, but there is a good test function on the cut pane of the software. I almost always re-check before sending a final cut on more expensive materials.
Good luck with it! Again, I love it.
