With the smart materials that I covered earlier this year with the cricut Explore 3, I felt that the update created a space for everyone to do great things much faster and with a lot more options.
Cricut Maker has even more control over tools, using advanced mathematical algorithms and a system of intricate brass gears designed to improve cutting accuracy. Naturally, the first fabric material I wanted to try with my Cricut Maker and my rotating blade was felt, thick wool felt, to be precise. And with a quick search, you can see people doing incredibly creative things with every Cricut model. One of the really cool things about Cricut Maker is all the tools that are available to help you create and create in a variety of ways.
Cricut wanted to tackle one of the most time-consuming and often hated parts of sewing patterns: cutting and marking fabric. What really sets Cricut apart from its competitors is its Design Space software, and this ever-evolving experience has improved dramatically since I reviewed Explore 3 earlier this year. There are many people who think of Cricut only as a vinyl cutter, but the truth is that even the comparatively simpler Explore 3 is considerably more than that. Each Cricut Explore and Maker has two accessory slots, but one of them is always dedicated to the use of pens.
Cricut Design Space software can be used on a computer, tablet or phone, and connects to the machine wirelessly via bluetooth ????. Cricut Maker introduces a new adaptive tooling system that integrates with all of Cricut’s most popular blades, pens, and tools, along with some cool new tools as well. While my Cricut Explore Air 2 machine can cut fabric, the fabric must first be attached to something else to make it heavier and thicker, such as Heat N’ Bond or a similar product. Not only does the Cricut machine cut all your pieces for you, but the washable fabric marker can also automatically mark your pattern pieces and seam allowances so you always know how they fit together.
That roll also works with the Cricut Explore 3, but when connected to the Maker 3, it’s a more secure fit and requires a little less handling to use.
