The Silhouette Curio


 Silhouette Curio


Meet the Silhouette Curio machine, the ultimate DIY machine. This new Silhouette machine is more than a cutting tool, because it can cut, emboss, sketch, stipple, and etch. Along with the new stippling and etching functions, Silhouette is proud to introduce three types of embossing methods, Path Emboss, Score & Emboss, and Print & Emboss. Silhouette’s new dual carriage now means that you can also emboss and perform another function, like sketching or cutting, in just one pass!

With the Silhouette Curio, you can cut thicker material. Using the Silhouette new Deep Cut Blade, you can cut up to 2mm thick materials. The Silhouette Curio boasts a 5mm clearance, which allows you to feed thicker materials through the cutting machine. The thicker clearance allows users to utilise entirely new project pallets, such as wood to sketch stencils onto, or to cut thicker materials, such as foils, leather, and more. 

The Curio’s maximum workspace is 8.5 inches by 12 inches (Curio large base sold separately). The standard base that comes with the Curio provides a maximum work space of 8.5 inches by 6 inches. And the Silhouette Curio is also Print & Cut compatible, this machine includes an optic scanner that can read and utilise registration marks to cut precisely around a printed image.

The Silhouette Curio boasts a rich mix of innovative features including a dual carriage, an adjustable base and a raised clearance bar opening the door to new project palettes like woods, foils, thicker leathers, foams, and even metals. Like other Silhouette cutting tools, the Curio is driven by powerful Silhouette Studio® software and the Silhouette Design Store. Most designs from the Design Store can be repurposed for embossing, stippling, and etching projects.

The Curio is the world’s first complete hobby machine. The Silhouette Curio makes the perfect companion to the other Silhouette cutting machines, Silhouette Cameo 2 or Silhouette Portrait, and allows you to maximize even more the creative possibilities and unleash your full potential.

  • Metal etching
  • Dual carriage multitasking (multiple tasks in one pass)
  • Embossing Score & Emboss Print & Emboss
  • Deep-cut capabilities* (leather, foils, foams, and more)
  • Using thicker materials as project surfaces (example: stencils sketched directly onto wood up to 5mm thick)

Q: Can I cut fabric with my Curio?

A: Similar to other Silhouette cutting machines, the Curio can cut fabric when using fusible fabric stabilizers.

Q: Can I cut straight from a roll of media with my Curio?

A: No. The Curio requires a hard base when cutting and has a limited cutting area.

Q: What types of metals can the Curio etch?

A: The Curio can etch soft metal surfaces, such as aluminum, copper, and brass. We do not currently have an exhaustive list that we are able to provide.

Q: What is stippling?

A: Stippling is the process of creating a design using a series of dots. The Curio provides the capability to produce stippling effects. This can be achieved with either a felt tip pen to draw stipple points or the stippling tool to punch a series of stipple points.

Q: What is the maximum cutting force of the Curio?

A: When used under normal cutting conditions, the Curio provides 210gf cutting pressure.

Q: Can I use Curio accessories in my Portrait, CAMEO, or other Silhouette electronic cutting tool?

A: While the tools will fit into all Silhouette machine types, they are designed for use with the Silhouette Curio. We cannot guarantee results when using tools intended for use with the Curio in other Silhouette cutting tools. Silhouette does not recommend using the deep-cut blade, stippling tool, engraving tool, or embossing tools with machines other than the Curio.

Q: Which tools and accessories are compatible with Curio?

A: The Curio is compatible with all current tools and accessories offered, such as regular blades and sketch pens.

Q: Is the Curio quieter than other Silhouette machines?

A: The Curio has similar operating noise levels as other Silhouette machines. Various operations, such as stippling metal, may produce louder sounds.

Q: What kind of material surfaces can be embossed?

A: While we have had success with many types of materials, the Silhouette Studio® software settings are optimized for Silhouette Score & Emboss paper. Other material types can be embossed through trial and error.
