You have a friend or family member that never leaves you alone? Buy this machine for them! You will never see them again AND get custom gifts in return. Win win!
Easy to use, so the kiddos can use it for school projects. Decorate your house, make cards, get ready for holidays. Send someone a thoughtful card or tell them to get lost, all wth one machine!
I was excited when I saw the Cricut maker, with it’s indexable rotary cutter and knife blade. I have a drag knife that I use with a vacuum table on my CNC router, but sometimes its just too big of a pain to get it set up for small projects. I though this Maker machine would replace my drag knife, at least on small projects. In general, I think the machine has great potential, assuming it functions as advertised. (I was not able to actually use the machine before I returned it)
The problem is with their design software. I’m sure the machine works well for someone cutting quilt blocks, scrapbooking or cutting iron-on’s, but does not work well for applications requiring dimensional accuracy.
Here are a few of the issues I found:
1. The knife blade is not yet available (I knew that going in, but it is now more than 6 months since it was first promised) There are a lot of review sites touting it’s virtues, but it is not clear if anyone, outside of Cricut, has actually seen one in real life.
2. His device works only when connected to the Cricut cloud. (for windows users) Every other peripheral device I use, from desktop printer to CNC plasma cutter, will work without an internet connection. Most have some method of working autonomously via SD card or local network connection to network storage. Not so with Cricut, as they must bless every design before allowing it to stream to one of their devices.
3. You MUST use the Cricut Design Space cloud software for all designs. Although you can import graphics from other software, the final design to be sent to the cutter exists only in the cloud within the “Design Space” application.
4. THE DEAL BREAKER: There is no precise way to scale or position elements within the Design space application. Although you can change the “Size” and “Position” within the app, these are actually the size of a bounding box around the object, and the position of the center of that bounding box. When objects on different layers are not symmetric, the resulting bounding box positions are completely meaningless. Their current workflow is; nudge, stretch, cut, adjust, repeat. A complete waste of time and materials, given that you design was of the correct size and position before it was imported.
In conclusion, this device has great potential, but has been rendered useless for dimensionally accurate projects by poorly designed software. If Cricut really want to expand into the “Maker” space, I think these shortcomings will need to be addressed.

A great machine for both scrapbooking and sewing as it cuts lots of different materials from the usual paper and card, through to acetate, fabric and more. You can use your own images so no need to keep buying expensive dies - this was the main reason for buying the machine. Also Simplicity has created patterns for this machine and I was keen to make some baby clothes though the limit is the size of the large mat - 12” by 24” (sold separately). However, after 2 months of use - and taking extreme care of the mats (rigorously following ALL instructions posted by Cricut) - they are frankly not fit for purpose. The adhesive stickiness has virtually gone so the blades no longer make clean cuts. The fabric mat is the worst but the light grip is also poor. Replacement mats are very expensive.
Easy set up - Connected easily to my Wi-fi - both PC and iPad.
Lots of “how to” videos online - a must view if you want to understand how to get the best from the machine. Worth the time.
Free access to the online Design Studio, where you can design what you want to print, draw or cut.
Lots of free designs, images, and projects, including Simplicity (not free). You can also subscribe to get even more designs and projects.
Alternatively, you can import your own images/designs - not an option with many other machines.
Cuts lots of different materials up to 2.3mm.
Cuts fabric on the special fabric mat (included) without needing to back it with a stabiliser.
You need to do the cut through your iPad with a downloaded design as connection keeps being lost via the online Design Studio via a PC.
Not fast - but I don’t think any are, plus I was using complex designs.
Threads left on the fabric mat build up over time although these will be cut through though. Not sure how long before the mat loses its stickyness.
Replacement mats, tools, pens and accessories are expensive.
Clever machine and Design Studio but you need to plan if doing your own stuff!
Snippets from the chat:
Deepak ‘I can definitely help you out today.’
After everything he told me to try failed, he told me to ring ‘UK: 0808 101 7032’.
Me: I've tried ringing many times.
Deepak: Please try to call after half an hour to talk with our tech team.
Me: Why will that be any better. I've been constantly redialling for 10 minutes now… Please can you ask your supervisor to contact the support team for me and get back to me? Thanks
Deepak: id there is an option to call, then I would have arranged the call without asking you to call the team…Please wait for half an hour and call back to talk with our tech team.
Me: I am not confident that I will get through, so if that doesn't work, what do you suggest?
Deepak: I am sure, you will get connected to the voice team. Just wait for half an hour and try again.
I didn’t get through, so I started another chat. This time with Mariah. It turned out that UK: 0808 101 7032 meant I should ring America, but even putting 001 in front didn’t work.
Then I was offered a call back from a technician. - something Deepak assured me couldn’t be done. But I was told the problem couldn’t be fixed using a Mac. I was expected to take the Cricut to a friend with a Windows computer, download the software on their machine, email Chat, wait for technical support to ring back in 15-20 minutes and do a hard reset.
Mariah: I’m sorry Jan, but it is the only option we have at this point.
Me: Deepak told me the only option was for me to ring that UK number and they would sort the problem out. He said that there wasn't an option of a technician ringing me. You have a different only option at this point. Is there another option at another point?
It turned out there was. There is a way of manually uploading the firmware, but it didn’t work either, so I’m sending the machine back.
1) You are required to use a specifically made mat (which you can purchase more, though this will be a frequent purchase as the mats loose stickiness quickly as they pick up paper and dirt and fibres)
2) The blades seem to get blunt fast, and, seemingly unfit for purpose, as the fine blade provided struggled at times to cut through 200gsm card, even when adjusted to appropriate settings.
3) The online software is, mediocre, as an Illustrator fan, I wanted to import "to scale" based designs so I could print one version, and cut specifics out to pixel perfection (this does not seem achievable) as even when you have to manually align the design on the supplied software, when you click "make it" it will auto align to the top left, this was the final straw for me, I have to send it back and look for an alternative solution, maybe laser?
4) I would only personally recommend this for light usage.
Yo creo que cada una tiene lo suyo pero cuando nosotros (mi esposa y yo) decidimos comprar esta Cricut Maker estábamos considerando también la Brother ScannCut. De la Cameo 4 fue de la que vimos los comentarios menos buenos. Finalmente fueron las opciones de herramientas y la presión de corte lo que nos hizo tomar la decisión.
En este momento hay mas herramientas para la Cricut Maker que para cualquier otra máquina y aunque parece que con las otras maquinas puedes hacer lo mismo, ayuda tener la herramienta específica para marcar dobleces en papel y cartulinas, cortes en tela (con el cortador circular), cortes ondulados, etc. El otro dato importante es la capacidad de la máquina para ejercer presión al cortar y aunque parece complicado de apreciar, es algo que afecta la precisión de los cortes en materiales gruesos (cartulinas de 200 gr o mas) o en tela pues a menor presión, se pueden requerir mas pasadas o las herramientas pueden desviar su trayectoria. La Cricut Maker puede aplicar hasta 4 kilos de presión comparada con los 1.26 kg de la ScannCut.
La máquina está super bonita (es la Apple de los plotters de corte) y su mecanismo y herramientas se sienten sólidos y bien hechos. El software de diseño es medio básico y está orientado a que pagues la renta mensual ($175.00 pesos la mes) por usar su amplísimo catálogo de diseños y proyectos y no tanto a que tu desarrolles tus propias ideas. Nosotros diseñamos nuestros propios proyectos con un software de diseño básico (Affinity Designer, CorelDraw, o alguna otra opción gratis como Inkscape) y los exportamos como SVG para subirlos al programa de Cricut.
Si hay una curva de aprendizaje y ayuda mucho ver totorales en YouTube (hay miles en varios idiomas). Aun así hay que hacer pruebas y tener paciencia pues cortar diferentes materiales implica conocer muy bien los ajustes de presión para que haga un solo corte o que haga dos pasadas.
