Just my 2 cents on this.
I bought a Silhouette Cameo before they had the Silhouette Connect software available here in the US. It was very time consuming to save the coreldraw file in a format that you import into the Silhouette Software.
I located the software on the Internet available in Europe but it was no available in the US. I contacted the company I purchased the Cameo, Coastal Business Supply and spoke with there support staff about it. They downloaded it from a overseas website but it would not work. The spoke with the Cameo people and were told it was not yet available in the US. Two days later Coastal advised me it was available and I purchased it on the spot. You will save more then $40 dollars in time wasted trying to do the things in the Silhouette software that you can do in CorelDraw. Somethings you can't even do with the cameo software.
I do not regret purchasing the the Cameo Connect and I think you will find the same.
Again, Just my 2 cents.
