UPDATE: As of November, 2013 Silhouette Connect was released for Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw users on Windows and Mac to be able to cut directly from their programs to their Cameo or Portrait.
As I don't have Mac to test on, I would love to hear feed-back in the comments. Is it working? Any problems with installation or use of the program? Please fill us all in!
Silhouette Cameo & Illustrator
There are those of you, I'm sure, that are thrilled you can cut directly to the Silhouette from Illustrator. Before running out to buy a machine please note that the new Silhouette Cameo does not have a plug-in for Illustrator and there are no plans to do this. Silhouette Design Studio is the new way to go, and the recommendation from Graphtec. You can still export from Illustrator as a .dxf to get it to work in Silhouette Studio, or in other formats accepted in Silhouette Design Studio, but there will be no future updates to this program to get it working with the Cameo.
More to come on Using Illustrator and Silhouette. Soon.
