I think we will be ordering his Maker soon. HA! No, in all seriousness, I do not know how I lived without this machine before today.
I love having the ability to cut fabrics without having to back them with heat and bond or some other stabilizer. The cutting of felt is also a HUGE selling factor. Since we don't have access to the wood cutting blade, I cannot attest to it's wood cutting ability but if it is like the rest of the Cricut line-up, I am sure it will live up to the hype.
It is a bit heavier than the Explore series but that doesn't bother me. It is still light enough that you can take it with you on the road if you wish. It will also fit nicely in the existing hard side Cricut bags made for the Explore series. Sweet! If you are familiar with the new sewing patterns that Cricut offers though, you will want to invest in a 12x24 mat right away as many of the patterns require the longer mat. Other than that, I am super pleased with this machine, the accessories and the Cricut brand. Well, all except their no-coupon policy. THAT could change and I would be a customer for life.
I might add too, that you can purchase your Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV) from other vendors besides Cricut and they work just as well, if not better. Especially for UV protected auto/marine Vinyl products.
To start, I am a novice and knew nothing about how to use this machine or what they cut. I just heard people love the Cricut and it looked fun but I had no idea the Maker would be this amazing. I looked at older models and saw that in order to cut fabric, you had to apply heat and bond. Honestly, if I had to do that to cut any fabric, I never would have cut fabric. It would be an absolute pain. The Cricut Maker cuts fabric, felt, leather and denim like butter. And how do you cut it? Just slap it on the sticky mat! What?! So easy!
Figuring out the Cricut Design space was so insanely easy too. I had a couple images I wanted to use and uploading them to the site and placing it wherever I want it to be cut is so awesome. That rotary blade is so precise, I was so impressed. It cuts lace and delicate material perfectly. And then really thick synthetic leather, not a problem!
My favorite thing so far has been cutting felt. It's SO EASY!!! In a few hours I made several dozen flowers and bows---oh my goodness! Do you know that I have been making felt bows and flowers by hand for years for fun and not only were they poorly shaped, they took me a MILLION YEARS!
I am so excited about the neat things to do with the Cricut Maker and I will definitely be trying heat transfer vinyl soon. We make matching Disney shirts and either pay t-shirt companies a ton of money or do that crappy printer paper iron on stuff but now I can do HTV with the Cricut Maker and I am so excited to play!!!
Seriously, if you are a novice or an expert and are wondering if you need this--YES YOU NEED THIS!!!!! It is 100% worth every single penny. I am in loooooove! Here are a few of the flowers I made in seriously a couple hours in the photo below.
Unfortunately, the product is still essentially in beta and product support is almost non-existent. The machine I ordered from Amazon just flat out didn’t work- after it miscut the fabric half a dozen times, I went to a local store and bought another machine. First, I tried a new rotary blade in the Maker from Amazon, with no luck. Then, I tried the new Maker, and that fixed it- the one from Amazon wasn’t working because the rotary blade didn’t move up and down.
I could write that off as a mishap, but it was made far worse by the fact that the software kept freezing, or hanging up, every time I tried to restart the machine while trouble shooting. I literally spent 5 hours today cycling through restarts because the iOS (iPhone / iPad) software is so buggy (and I’m using an iPhone X and the most recent iPad model, so it’s not me). I did find the software to be more stable on my laptop, but since the Maker is specifically marketed for use with mobile devices, it should work with them.
Even worse, I couldn’t reach anyone in tech support, and I spent hours trying. The transcript of my chat session is hilarious- hours and hours of me asking no one why the cue kept getting longer and why there was no one available to help me (this was 4:00-7:00 on a Friday, well within chat center hours). I never made it to the front of the line- after the third hour, I just took off and went to the craft store for a new machine.
Finally, after all of that, when I finally got a working machine and set it up to my laptop, I couldn’t even finish a project because I didn’t buy the blades for the older machines. I would have, had there been any indication they’d be needed, but there wasn’t.
I’ve invested about $1,200 in the Cricut at this point, for two machines, and $300 in attachments and materials (and sales tax). At least one maker will go back, but still, this is a huge price for a machine that doesn’t work. I also hate to think of people who aren’t tech savvy trying to work through these issues.
I also suspect that most of these rave reviews came from people paid, or who got free Makers, to promote them. I can not believe people who spent their own money on this machine would be so rapturous over software this buggy. I mean, I mean, it’s great that Cricut included a slot to hold my iPad, but I would have been a lot happier with software that reliably connects to my iPad.
Update: two weeks after I contacted Cricut the connection to my iPhone and iPad has not been resolved. I’ve spoken to three people and each conversation ends with them saying it’s a known issue and a suggestion I use my laptop instead. There is no indication Cricut actually intends to fix the problem, and I am beyond frustrated that the employees have all suggested using my laptop is a great fix. If the Maker had not been so aggressively marketed as mobile device compatible, I would be more understanding, but it’s reprehensible Cricut isn’t supporting two of the three major updates it advertised (no mobile device integration and still no knife blade as of mid-January) and even more frustrating that it takes customer service so long to respond.
