Silhouette Portrait 1 vs 2

The Silhouette Portrait 1 and Portrait 2 may seem the same from the outside, but the insides are a bit different. The Silhouette Portrait 2 has all the same features of the Portrait 1 and more. It has been upgraded to allow for a lot of the same features as the Cameo 3. It’s also worth noting that both machines both use the Silhouette Studios Software.

As stated earlier, the Portrait 2 has all the same features included in the Portrait 1, with some enhancements…

The most noteworthy change is AutoBlade compatibility. The AutoBlade is a blade that automatically adjusts its depth according to the material being cut. This takes out some of the guesswork and saves times.

Another enhancement is deep-cut blade compatibility and higher 2 mm clearance. This means you will be able to cut thicker materials.

Bluetooth is also available, so you can save yourself from having those tangled wires.

Which is Better? The Silhouette Portrait 1 or 2?

Considering the Portrait 2 has all the features and more, we will have to say the Portrait 2 is a better machine. If you are simply looking to save money, then the Portrait 1 may be a better deal.
