How to connect Bluetooth for Cameo 3


How To

 

Bluetooth Setup for CAMEO 3

In order to set up Bluetooth® connectivity with the CAMEO 3, please first ensure that your CAMEO 3 notes "Bluetooth® Included" on the front of the CAMEO box (rather than just "Bluetooth® Compatible"). The "Included" notation indicates that a Bluetooth® adapter is included and installed in your CAMEO whereas "Compatible" indicates there is a port for a Bluetooth® adapter, but one is not included.

You will also need to ensure your computer or device has Bluetooth 4.0 support. Computers or devices not equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 support cannot properly use the Bluetooth® communication option. You can click here to check your computer. Please note that an LMP of 6.0 or above indicates the presence of the Bluetooth 4.0 protocol.

Once you have confirmed your CAMEO 3 machine has a Bluetooth® adapter and that your computer or device is equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 capability, you may do the following to ensure the Bluetooth® feature is enabled.

On the CAMEO 3 machine:

Power on the CAMEO 3 Select the gear icon in the Upper Right of the touch-screen Scroll down using the down arrow Select the "Bluetooth®" option Select the "On" option Select the back arrow several times to return to the main loading screen

Connect via the Silhouette Studio® software in Version 3:

PC

Select Silhouette Select Add Bluetooth® Cutter Select CAMEO3 Select Ok

Mac

Select Silhouette  Select Add Bluetooth® Cutter Go to “Send to Silhouette” Select CAMEO3 under “Bluetooth Connection” Select Connect

Version 4 (same for both PC and Mac)

Select Send in the upper right Select the Bluetooth button in the lower right Select Add Bluetooth machine… Select the device listed as Cameo3

Connection should establish and you will see that your machine is “Ready” in the software.

Bluetooth Adapter Recommendation for Bluetooth Compatible models

The Silhouette CAMEO® Bluetooth® Edition model comes with a Bluetooth® adapter installed. While other Silhouette CAMEO 3 models offered in various markets and parts of the world do not include a pre-installed Bluetooth® adapter, they are still Bluetooth® compatible and can have a 3rd party adapter installed.

If you wish to communicate wirelessly via Bluetooth® using a Bluetooth compatible Cameo 3 model (adapter not included), you can obtain a third-party Bluetooth® adapter wihich meets the requirements below:
 


Size: The measurements of the recommended adapter cannot exceed the above dimensions. However, either measurement can be smaller. Type: The chip type for the Bluetooth® adapter must be the following CSR chip.

CSR8510 A10

Other Bluetooth adapters with alternate chipsets will not work with the CAMEO 3.

At this time, we do not have any specific recommendations for Bluetooth adapters that may be compatible with our machines.
