As a part of our 3D Design series, kids were able to learn how to use the Silhouette Cameo 2 cutting machine. They also explored the capabilities of the Inkscape graphics software and the Silhouette Studio designing software. In this class the students learned how to operate this CNC machine step by step, beginning with creating a design to use in the graphics software.
A CNC machine uses Computer Numerical Control to automate tools. In this case, the Cameo is our CNC machine that relies on a laptop to send automated controls for the razor blade tool to cut out fun shapes and designs in paper!
