Plot a variety of materials
The Portrait 3 can cut the following materials: cardstock, vinyl, heat transfer, specialty materials (such as sticker paper, tattoo paper, shrink plastic, and vellum), cotton fabrics (when cut with a stabilizer product) and more!
Print & Cut technology
All Silhouette catting machines have a built-in optical sensor to read printed motifs. Once you've finished your printed design, insert it into your Silhouette Portrait. The optical sensor finds the registration marks on your printed motif and the silhouette portrait cuts the contours. Design individual stickers, labels, textile transfer designs and much more.
With the help of a camera or a scanner, PixScan technology enables you to cut the exact contour of a printed design or to place desired cutting lines on your material. You can even use your smartphone or tablet for this. The PixScan algorithm enables the Silhouette Portrait to recognize specially placed registration marks on the PixScan cutting mat. PixScan is ideal for storing scanned or photographed motifs in your personal digital library or for converting a hand sketch into a new user-defined cut file.
The Silhouette Studio software is the most powerful design software for hobby cutting systems on the market. This innovative software offers functions that are normally only found in high-end design software. Silhouette Studio is intuitive, amazingly easy to use and in the basic version absolutely free for all Silhouette users. Silhouette Studio offers you countless possibilities to let your project take shape.
The Portrait 3 was built with ease and portability in mind, so you can take the Portrait 3 with you wherever you go - perfect if you want to plot with friends!
