The newest member of the Silhouette family is here! Like the earlier Portrait models, the Portrait 3 is compact but mighty. It’s the perfect cutting machine for travel or where space is limited such as a dorm room, apartment, or a small craft area.
So what’s new about it?
The Portrait 3 features:
- A tool chamber that houses the same AutoBlade used in the Cameo 4 (with single tap reset)
- Automatic Tool Detection
- Matless cutting mode (“Pop-Out” Cut)
What’s included in the box:
- Silhouette Portrait 3 cutting machine
- Power cord
- USB cord
- AutoBlade (for both Portrait 3 and Cameo 4)
- 8-inch x 12-inch cutting mat
- Sketch Pen adapter
- 50 exclusive designs (download card)
- 1-month subscription to the Silhouette Design Store (available with tool registration)
What other tools are compatible with the Portrait 3?
Older tools require the use of an adapter set (sold separately):
- Black adapter – Ratchet Blade, Fabric Blade, Premium Blade
- Grey adapter – Deep Cut Blade
- White adapter – 2mm Kraft Blade
- Blue adapter – Silhouette Sketch Pens (black body)
The Rotary Blade, 3mm Kraft Blade, and Punch Tool are NOT compatible with the Portrait 3.

Do you know how to get the white page to disappear on the portrait3? my cameo doesn’t show the page. Just wondering if you knew.
Hi Michelle! I think you’re asking about the white design page? If you don’t want it to appear as white, change the Transparency (in older versions of the software, it’s called “Reveal”) percentage in the Page Setup Panel. The higher you go with the number, the less white that will show. Hope that helps!
