    I never used this. Well maybe one time. It was very complex to use. I ordered it on a whim. It would be great for a regular crafter. I just haven’t had a regular use for it.

    This was my very first Cricut Explore machine and I couldn't be happier. I have since ordered the Explore Air 2 from Overstock so I can use both machines for my crafting business. LOVE these machines!

  • I wish it was so much better
    Verified Purchase

    In concept, a tool that can cut sheets to your size specifications sounds so simple. In reality there are a lot of very cumbersome details. The paper sticks to the mats. This may be unsurprising to those of you who have worked with Cricut mats previously. I had such a difficult time removing the finished paper from the mat. It would either tear or curl in about 20% of instances. Imperfect creases with the creasing tool. The software, oh my gosh, it's awful! It's very difficult to use, does not work with most standard (read: non-Cricut fonts) Cricut fonts and pictures are very expensive. I found that the markers also wrote imperfectly, even during the demo telephone card project that was included. Positives: This is one of the few available items that is capable of printing cuts. I do enjoy this machine having bluetooth as it eliminates the need for my computer to be physical connected. I am not certain if I would purchase this item again, but since I have it I will try to continue to make use of it.

  • Couldn't craft without it!
    Verified Purchase

    I love this machine, it does so much, so easily!! It scores, writes, cuts & best of all the print & cut is beautiful!! It does take a good operating system on your pc, no cheap tablets! But it will design & cut on an iPad. You still need a pc to upload your svg, photos, patterns & the like. I use it almost daily

    I had a lot of connection issues with my Macbook and my iPad Mini. It was much easier just to plug in my machine directly to the Explore.

    • A:

      I looked at this when I got it but it went to my daughter and she LOVES LOVES it... I have not used it. She says it does many many things and really enjoying it!

  • Q:

    "What else is needed with this machine, ie, like tools ect?"

    • A:

      Depends on what type of projects you'll be using the machine for. Will you be using it for vinyl? The weeding tool will be useful. Will you be cutting shaped boxes? The scoring tool will be useful. Do you want to write with the machine? It comes with 1 metallic pen. It wouldn't hurt to just purchase the 5 piece kit that they offer and maybe a few pens but just think about what you want to do with the machine most importantly. You'll also need vinyl, paper, fabric and whatever else to do your projects of course. Hope this helps!

    • A:

      You will need the basic tool set, adhesive cutting mats 12x12 or 12x24, vinyl, iron on, or whatever material you will be using, and a pen set to get started.
