    I'm about to buy a silhouette Cameo 2 or 3, but if not MTC compatible..then I don't want to get it. So please let me know if either one works with a 2 or 3. Thank you! :smiley:

    There a is plugin for the Cameo 2
    I think but not sure there may some limitations with regard to print and cut in regard to mat orientation I'm sure a cameo 2 user can clarify this

    There have been discussions of cutting to the Cameo 3 from MTC but the position of the cutting is incorrect and use of the 2nd tool is not possible
    Silhouette have made some improvement in their studio software with version 4 unfortunately they still don't allow import of svg in the free base version
    Ironically this appears to make cutting from MTC via SVG export to a Cricut machine a more plausible option 

    Make the Cut has not been updated for some time so compatibility for newer machines eg Cameo3 , KNK Force, KNK Zing Orbit has not been added so is non existent or limited at best
    Considering this it might be time to place a cutters suitability for the required task ahead of whether it is compatible with make the cut

    @a1jomama - you can purchase the Business Edition of Silhouette, and that version I understand lets you import SVG files to cut on the Cameo. You can use MTC to do your design work, then export as SVG for cutting with the Silhouette program.

    All three Silhouette Studio upgrades, Designer Edition, Designer Edition Plus, and Business Edition, accommodate importing SVG files. The Business Edition also exports in SVG, JPEG, and PDF formats (excluding designs purchased from the Silhouette Design Store) in Studio Version 4.1, which was launched as a public release on 8/21/2017.

    @gll5613 - Your information above are correct but there is an easy trick to save a shape purchased at Silhouette Design Store as SVG file. As the shapes from Silhouette Design Store already have a cutting line (perfect contour), you only need to trace the shape again, and then save it as SVG file, without any type of restriction. Try it and let us know the result!
