Hacking The Vinyl Cutter

Four projects created with the Cameo 4 vinyl cutter on everything but vinyl.

When school went remote, ITP sent the subtraction students a Cameo 4 vinyl cutter. It was a godsend. I have been using it almost daily. In the past five weeks I have created a lamp with dichroic platonic solid filters and lenticular lens shades which presents the live colors from a times square webcam. Additionally, I vinyl cut lenticular platonic solids and project color onto them from LED matrices. I also built a tool to generate vector halftone images and cut portraits out of dichroic film. Lastly, I generated spirals with Perlin noise, overlaid them to see the moire effect and plotted them using the Cameo pen attachment.
