We’re thrilled to announce the latest generation of two of our industry-leading smart cutting machines.
Thanks to some incredible innovation and a lot of hard work from our development teams, not only can these machines do everything they can today, but now they have more performance and features packed into the same compact, home-friendly footprint you already know and love.
Make in record time
We’ve heard from you that the only thing that holds you back from making is time. While we can’t change the fact that there are 24 hours in a day, we can change how fast your cutting machine can work for you. The all-new Cricut Maker 3 and Cricut Explore 3 have more powerful motors, which means you now have the ability to cut up to 2X faster than before, when using Smart Materials™ — all without sacrificing power or precision.
Introducing Smart Materials
Both Cricut Maker 3 and Cricut Explore 3 work with our all-new Smart Materials. We designed these machines and Smart Materials to work together. The machines have special material guides, and the materials are engineered with a proprietary construction — all to keep your materials perfectly aligned and on track from start to finish.
All of this adds up to a big new creative opportunity: For the first time ever, you can make cuts up to 12 ft (3.6 m) long in one go. Sensors inside the machines measure your material before cutting to ensure you have enough for your project. If more material is needed, Design Space™ will prompt you to load more.
Since there’s nothing to prep, you can keep your focus on the best part — making.
Go the distance
Let’s introduce you to the Smart Materials available at launch
The all-new Cricut Smart Vinyl is available in both permanent and removable varieties. It also comes in a wide array of colors, effects, and material lengths from 3 ft (0.9 m) to 75 ft (22.9 m).
Cut a single image up to 4 ft (1.2 m) or repeated shapes up to 12 ft (3.6 m). Make a custom T-shirt for yourself or the entire team. Available in a variety of colors and effects.
Smart Paper™ Sticker Cardstock
That’s right — with Smart Paper, you’ll be able to just load a sheet into the machine without a mat. With the perfect kiss cut, all you need to do is peel and stick. Create fun cards, bold banners, and layered paper projects without the messy glue.
New materials, new accessories
Both machines are compatible with Roll Holder (sold separately and coming soon after launch) to support rolls of Smart Materials up to 75 ft (22.9 m). It keeps your material tidy for a hands-free feed into the machine and even has a convenient built-in trimmer for super-clean finish.
You might also love our new 13 in (33 cm) Portable Trimmer (sold separately) to keep all of your materials neat, clean, and ready for the next cut.
Beautiful from all angles
There’s one more obvious change to Cricut Explore 3 – no dial! Now, all material settings are in Design Space. Cricut Explore 3 also features a tray to hold your mobile device or tablet while working.
