Cricut Maker 3 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine I’ve had mine for a week now, it’s a lot to get your head around with what you can actually do with it and I’m still learning, but I’m getting the hang of it, there’s a whole world of possibilities. So far I’ve had no problems, not even the odd learner mistakes, it’s worth doing the courses on Cricut. Yes it’s quite a pricey machine, especially when you add all the accessories that you need but it’s worth it if you love crafting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm in love This was a but of a spur of the moment purchase but I love it! My husband and I have both got massive amounts of prijects lined up for it once we have learned everything. I was originally only going to get the middle tier model, however my husband wanted the extra wood cutting feature of this model!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This product is great and very easy to use. There are also loads of useful you tube videos from cricut that help you with anything you may be struggling with. Any queries I have had so far has been really easy to find the answer for by watching the tutorials

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cricut Maker 3 Simply fantastic! Super quick and easy too use ! Does exactly what it says and your projects are endless ! Only down side if using without cutting mat you must have the full length of the material 13” wide in your circuit otherwise it doesn’t work without the mat and throws your material around like a wet bag

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Machine The Maker 3 is an Excellent machine well made. it is big and quite heavy so i wouldnt plan to carry it around or keep moving it about. But it is very versitile and simple to use. the cricut software is ok not brilliant but does the job. just watch out for free fonts and free images sometimes trying to charge you. but i would highly recommend this machine

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good little machine, software needs a bit more work Overall very happy with this Maker, never had one before, but there was an offer on with this one, so purchased. It works really well, but the software can be a bit buggy sometimes, and can't handle super detailed vector's yet, it tries... hopefully a future update will allow for it. Simple to medium complexity vectors it deals with perfectly, great results.

Cricut Maker 3 Q&A

Yes, Design Space is exactly the same for the Cricut Maker as for previous machine models. Use the same URL (https://design.cricut.com) to download it and the same Cricut ID to sign in.

However, Design Space will adjust available options – such as tools, material cut settings and materialload options – based on your machine selection.

The key differences are speed, cut length and cutting without a mat with Smart Materials.

Maker 3 Maker
Dual tool holder Yes Yes
Max material width 13in with Smart Materials

No. Your cartridges (image sets), projects and uploaded images are linked to your Cricut ID in the Cricut Cloud, not to a machine. Use the same Cricut ID as always and you'll have access to all your content with your Cricut Maker 3.

You can use Smart Materials on a mat with your Cricut Maker, but only the Maker 3 and Explore 3 can cut Smart Materials without a mat..

These clever crafting materials work without a cutting mat, so you can just load the material directly into your Cricut Maker 3 or Cricut Explore 3 machine and go. Smart Materials come in a variety of material types, including Smart Vinyl, Smart Iron-On and Smart Paper Sticker Cardstock.

The Cricut Maker machine does have a Fast Mode option for cutting and writing up to two times faster when using some vinyl, iron-on and cardstock settings. The Cricut Maker 3 has been further optimised to more intelligently control speeds for cutting and drawing.

Blade replacement depends on how much you use your Cricut machine and which materials you choose. They are designed to last well, but replacement blades are easily available for when you do require a new one. To get the most out of your blades, ensure you use the correct blade, housing and machine settings for your material.

All blades require a specific housing, colour coded for easy pairing. If you already have the correct housing for your blade and are simply replacing the blade, you will only need to replace the blade itself. If you are purchasing a new blade, you will need to buy the matching housing. This excludes the QuickSwap range, which is interchangeable.

The Cricut Maker cuts a wide range of materials provided that it is less than 2.4mm thick. The materials it cuts include leather, acetate, foil, balsa, bamboo fabric, basswood, boucle, broadcloth, burlap, calico, canvas, cardstock, cashmere, Chantilly lace, chiffon, duct tape sheets, copy paper, corrugated cardboard, cotton, craft foam, crepe paper, delicate fabrics like tulle, double knit, denim, EVA foam, faux fur, faux suede, felt, flannel, flat cardboard, flocked paper, iron-on, poster board, gauze, glitter cardstock, vinyl, gossamer, heavy chipboard, jersey, Kevlar, linen, Lycra, magnetic sheets, matboard, mesh, nylon, parchment paper, poster board, rice paper, satin silk, suede, tissue paper, tweed, vellum, velour, washi sheets, wax paper, wrapping paper and window cling.

Cricut Design Space is free, cloud-based software that is used in conjunction with your Cricut machine. It is available for download on iOS and Android devices, as well as desktops and laptops. An internet connection is required to use Design Space.

Within Design Space, there are thousands of images and projects that can be used to create your own projects, and you can also upload your own designs. It is free to use a selection of images available in Design Space and to create your own designs. To access unlimited use of the full library of designs, there is a £7.49 subscription.

On first logging into Design Space, you will be taken on a tour and shown how to create your first project. However, if you need further help, there are lots of tutorials on the Cricut YouTube channel that take you through Design Space’s many capabilities.

Projects that are created in Design Space can be saved to the Cloud so that they can be accessed anywhere you are (as long as you have an internet connection). Alternatively, you can save projects to the device you are creating them on, though you will not be able to access these on any other device.

Design Space is free to use for your own designs. You can also access a selection of free designs in the library.

For unlimited use of the Cricut library on Design Space, there is a subscription for £7.49 a month. You can also purchase per image if you wish to access a particular design.
