Silhouette Cameo: using Robocut under Linux

Hi, as asked i’ve released a branch version of Robocut (https://gitorious.org/robocut) able to cut also from a Graphtec Silhouette Cameo.

Compile the sources

To compile the source just use:

make clean
make

to force a rebuild

Anyway, the modified code is located in the “Plotter.cpp” file:

I’ve just commented out the line 33 and replace the “PRODUCT_ID_SILHOUETTE” variable with the CAMEO code:

The zip file with the modified sources is available for download here: robocut-silhouette-cameo-graphtec

Registration marks

Inside the “examples” folder there is also a registration marks template fully functional (yes, the Silhouette Cameo is able to recognize registration marks also under Robocut, just put the page with the arrow pointing toward the plotter and align the sheet with the top left corner of the cutting mat).

Feel free to download and test, but remember that is provided “as-is” without any warranty (but i’m using it daily, and my Cameo is still not burned out).

Also, any one who wants to merge this with the original sources is welcome.

Ritagliare parti per modellismo con il Silhouette Cameo

Conclusi i progetti precendenti, finalmente sto iniziando ad utilizzare il Silhouette Cameo per un po’ di prove a scopo modellistico.

Per ora sto tagliando dei mascherini in vinile e delle parti in plasticard da 0.2mm e devo dire che la macchina si comporta benissimo.

Allego un po’ di foto delle prove:

Al momento, per tagliare, sto usando una versione modificata di Robocut, un software open source per Ubuntu. In attesa di rilasciarla, chi fosse interessato può contattarmi per averne una versione libera di test.
