Cricut Maker 3 overview.

Cricut Learn

Cricut Help

To start you will need to download the free Cricut Design Space program here.

Design Space is where you will create your designs and connect to the Cricut machine. We recommend you do this well ahead of time before you are borrowing the Cricut as whilst it is a straight forward program it does take considerable time at the beginning to find your way around and learn the features and tips you will need to create your projects.

Create your Cricut Access User Account.

You will need to create a Cricut Access user account and at the beginning you can choose to decline the free trial period of the full feature version and simply learn the features of the program. The paid version is not required to operate the Cricut and when you are ready to loan you can sign up to the trial 30 day period to access a wider range of images and features. You can cancel before your trial ends or continue making with premium features for a small monthly fee. Your choice.

Materials and consumables.

There is what appears to be a near endless supply of materials available from local shops or online specifically designed to use with the Cricut Maker 3. This model can use the Smart Materials range which allows you to cut vinyl up to 3.6m in one go. A quick search online will take you down the rabbit hole of possibilities and all materials and consumables are your responsibility. Have fun and we love to see pictures of what you create to share with our members. 

This item is loaned for casual home use only. If you are operating a business and intend to use the Cricut to make commercial quantities of cuts, please invest in your own unit.

A huge shout out to Councillor Vorster, Div 11 City of Gold Coast for the divisional grant funds that allowed us to purchase this Cricut Maker 3 and accessories kit.
