I am in search for suggestions for automated cutting tables that work with the Cameo system. I am finally mastering the CAD pattern design portion and looking to add the grading and marker making modules. Is there some article that explains automating the cutting process and what is needed and what the steps are. I am trying to understand how the different cameo modules integrate with each other.
I am also looking for someone in Indiana, MI or OH who might be using Cameo from the design stage thru the automated cutting stage who used the design, grading and marker making modules, that might let me come and see how the whole thing works. I am in the costume manufacturing field.

I use both Cameo Coordinate Grading and Excel to complete any pattern grading.
Currently, Excel can be replaced with chinese made Kingsoft Office Spreadsheet,
compatible with all platforms of Windows, Mac, Android ... and supports all previous versions. It seems that
they had a humanitarian view for all bussiness owners to create for them a working platform that stands time.
Also about Cameo Marker, you have to position each pattern manually - ok for when you use small length marker sheets.
There is one cutting software which is close to what I'd wish for Cameo to have
Silhouette Cameo that is providing the means to cut letter and A4 formats on fabric or paper
but it's still difficult to use for fabric - it has the advantage that can import dxf files and convert them for a cutting machine.
They even sell a small printer-cutter machine - ...I'd sew more if I had that for Cameo
Of course Pad System has automated marker, and Grading rules depend entirely of the grader preferences.
