Rated 3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by I like this format I like this format better than the old sticky sheet method. I am also looking forward to tryng out the etching. I have tried the cutting and embossing and find the new set up more accurate to plan what the finished product will be like 01 August 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by A great addition to my Cameo. Only 4 stars as I haven't tried all its capabilities yet. Instruction book is very poor - spent 90 minutes waiting for it to sync to be ready to use, only to find out that the cutting mat has to be in place first (unlike the Cameo)! Trawled the internet and found the solution. Am going to spend the day 'playing' :) 27 July 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Took a while to get it to work I think as with all these machines it would be nice to have all the tools in the package and not to have to buy separately. maybe have a choice of extras within the price. Bought this just for the etching. It took a while for me to get it to work, don't know what I did wrong or even what in the end I did right. :) The etching result is great, yet to try anything else. 27 July 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not Impressed The Silhouette Curio looked impressive on the TV demo however when I unboxed it the first impression I got was how flimsy it was. When I did some drawing with the pens after waiting some considerable time the ink smudged on touching it. I then tried some embossing and that was a catastrophe! The card stock GLUED itself to the embossing mat! I could not get it off! So I have returned it at the second attempt. Would not recommend this item sadly. 10 August 2016

The Silhouette Curio™ is the ultimate companion for other Silhouette cutting tools – Portrait and CAMEO – allowing you unlock powerful new creative possibilities like Print & Emboss using its optic scanner, Score & Emboss, and deep-cutting* in leather, foils, foam and more.

Curio allows you to unleash the included Silhouette Studio® software to its fullest potential, using new features like metal and foil stippling, metal etching, and dual carriage multitasking. Simply connect the machine to your PC or Mac via USB, power up Silhouette Studio® to design projects from scratch, then send them back to Curio to recreate your signature style!

If you're feeling a little uninspired, find your perfect designs in the Silhouette Design Store – a marketplace of over 87,000 ready-made designs available to purchase – then resize and customise them to suit your projects. Get creating right away with the FREE Canvas Textured Self-Adhesive Card and All Occasions 12" x 12" Paper Pad, providing the perfect project bases.

Silhouette's Gold Star Warranty covers your Silhouette cutting machine against breakdown for 36 months from the date of purchase. It covers faults and accidents, however it doesn't cover deliberate or malicious damage.

*Requires a deep-cut blade, sold separately.

What is the Curio?  

The Silhouette Curio™ is the ultimate DIY machine – more than just a cutting tool. It can cut, emboss, sketch, stipple, and etch— it's like a Swiss Army knife for your craft room. Unlock powerful new creative capabilities like Print & Emboss, Score & Emboss, and deep cut*. Curio allows you to unleash Silhouette Studio® software to its fullest potential with new features like stipple tracing and dual carriage tasks.

*Requires deep-cut blade, sold separately.

Is the Curio meant to replace my Portrait, CAMEO, or other Silhouette electronic cutting tool?

No! The Curio is the ultimate companion tool to the other Silhouette cutting tools because of the new ways you can create with it. Portrait and CAMEO are pure cutting machines – unlike the Curio, they allow for matless cutting and are able to cut rolled materials. In addition, the CAMEO boasts a 12" cutting width, whereas the Curio provides a maximum 8.5" x 12" cutting surface*. There are no plans to discontinue the Portrait or CAMEO cutting tools.

*Requires optional Curio large base for maximum cutting area capability.

How big is the Curio's workspace?

The Curio's maximum workspace is 8.5" x 12£ (Curio large base sold separately). The standard base that comes with the Curio provides a maximum work space of 8.5" x 6".

Does the Curio have Print & Cut capability?

Yes! The Silhouette Curio™ includes an optic scanner that can read and utilise registration marks for Print & Cut jobs.

What can a Curio do that a CAMEO, Portrait, or other Silhouette electronic cutting tool can't?

Metal and foil stippling, 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 (e.g. stencils sketched directly onto wood up to 5mm thick).

*Requires deep-cut blade, sold separately.

Can I cut fabric with my Curio?

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

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

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

What types of metals can the Curio etch?

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

What is stippling?

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.

What is the maximum cutting force of the Curio?

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

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

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.

Which tools and accessories are compatible with Curio?

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

Is the Curio quieter than other Silhouette machines?

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

What kind of material surfaces can be embossed?

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