What is the Cricut Explore, and What Does it Do?

Hmm! You ask what is Cricut Explore and what magic it can create? Most of your crafter friends and family have this magical machine, but you don’t know what it is and how your creativity can sprout to new heights with it, then this post is for you. You will learn all about this machine and how it could help you in designing. 

This short article will talk about how this crafting machine can change your life while answering the frequently asked questions from our readers about this machine. 

Let us explain our side of the story a bit of when we got our Cricut Explore machine. Getting our machine for the first time, we thought it was nothing special, just a device used for typical scrapbook designing. Oh boy! We were so wrong! It happens with everyone. 

When used the machine for the first time, most of the Cricut Explore machine users must have thought it to be ordinary, just like any other machine. But that changes as soon as you touch its sleek body. 

Designing a scrapbook with this machine is only the tip of the iceberg. What, in actuality and in-depth, the machine can do is admirable and inspiring. 

What Is Cricut Explore Machine?

The simplest definition to explain the Cricut Explore machine is that it’s an electronic device that cuts different materials and has a body that resembles a printer. The machine carries an exact blade and many rollers that can cut almost any material you can imagine, like paper crafts, stickers for shirts, vinyl labels, etc., instead of printing simple designs on the paper. 

The Cricut Explore machine has excelled its predecessors (like the Expression, the Gypsy, etc.). It has more advanced features. You can access the enormous library of cut files through Cricut Access, instead of cartridges the predecessors offered. You can also upload and cut your desired files and use the software on your laptop, PC, tablet, online, or offline. Cut more than 100 different types of material and write, score, and draw with it. 

The impeccable engineering behind the machine lets it cut materials with extreme precision. The most basic project will require you to design something for cutting in the Cricut Design Space software, placing materials on the cutting mat, analyze your settings, and pressing OK!

The uses the Cricut Explore provides are far greater than merely using it for scrapbooking purposes. For any DIY, crafting, etc. ideas, the machine can help you do it.
