Using Bluetooth® technology, your Cameo can receive cut jobs by devices other than your computer. This also means your Cameo will be able to receive cut jobs without being attached to your computer. Use Bluetooth® to get some of those pesky cords out of the way!

There are two versions of the Silhouette CAMEO® 3 offered: The Bluetooth® Edition and the Bluetooth® Compatible.

Your machine may come with a Bluetooth® adapter that has already been installed. To determine if your machine includes a Bluetooth adapter, please review the outside of your box. If the box says Bluetooth® Edition, your machine will be ready to communicate wirelessly from a Bluetooth-enabled device.

To set up the Bluetooth feature, start by powering on the machine. Select the gear icon in the upper right corner of the touch screen. Scroll down using the arrow on the touch screen. Select the Bluetooth option. Turn Bluetooth® on.

In Silhouette Studio, go to the Send tab. Click on the Bluetooth icon at the bottom of the panel. and select “Add Bluetooth machine.” A window will pop up prompting you to select a Bluetooth device. Select the CAMEO. After a few seconds, the status of the CAMEO will display as “Ready” in the send panel, and the setup is complete.

If the box says Bluetooth® Compatible, you can still use Bluetooth®, but to do so, you will need to purchase a Bluetooth® adapter and install it yourself first. You can obtain a third-party Bluetooth® adapter that is sold separately.

The adapter requirements are as follows:

Measurements of the recommended adapter cannot exceed these dimensions.

However, the measurements may be smaller.

The chip type for the Bluetooth® adapter must be the following CSR chip: CSR8510A10.

Other Bluetooth® adapters with alternate chipsets will not work with the machine.

In order to install the third-party Bluetooth® adapter, turn your machine over, locate the Bluetooth® compartment, and remove the screw with a Phillips screwdriver. Once the compartment cover has been removed, proceed to install the third-party Bluetooth adapter.
