Not too long ago, we started hearing about this new cutting machine that’s supposedly more powerful and versatile than other consumer vinyl cutters on the market: the Starcraft SOLO 16″ cutting machine. It promises a 16″ wide cutting ability, with the possibility to cut up to 72″ in length. Thanks to the awesome people at Brilliant Vinyl, we got advanced access to the yet-to-be-released SOLO.

We’ve spent the last couple of weeks getting to know the SOLO, along with the Starcraft CREATE software, and you can color us impressed! It’s fast and quiet, and while we haven’t fully explored all of the capabilities, we can tell that this is one powerful machine. We have so many things we want to try with the SOLO, but for now, we’ll start with showing you what all the SOLO comes with, how to set up the SOLO, as well as what you need to do to cut your first SVG with the Starcraft SOLO.
