abunda_amazon_reviews Beware! This machine is like a gateway drug and can lead too addictions. Once you have it, you find you need vinyl and paper and markers. You think you can run into a craft store and pick up some white heat transfer vinyl and come out wth six bags and have spent $287.42 and and then have to return to get the white htv. You start working on a project when you have a few minutes, next thing you know, the sun is coming up and your boss is calling asking why you aren't at work. Dinner has not been cooked for a week, but all of your canisters are labeled. Your family knows better than to ask you to buy a shirt wth a logo, because you can just make it, right after you get on Amazon and order more supplies. UPS is in no danger of going out of business because you are now on a first name basis with your local driver and have made him a travel mug for his coffee. Let me tell you, nothing like having vinyl stuck to various places when you go out in public to make you a well known, or maybe, it's well remembered, fashion statement. On the good side, since you are busy with your hands, you can't eat as much, so if you need to lose weight, this machine is for you! Do you have insomnia? Perfect! Now you have something to do I the middle of the night! Shopping ends up way different too. All of a sudden, you look at things differently, hey, I could put vinyl on that! I will buy 362 of these little bags so I can deviate them for class gifts for my kids, their kids and their kids kids. You have a friend or family member that never leaves you alone? Buy this machine for them! You will never see them again AND get custom gifts in return. Win win! Easy to use, so the kiddos can use it for school projects. Decorate your house, make cards, get ready for holidays. Send someone a thoughtful card or tell them to get lost, all wth one machine!;;Reviewed in the United States on May 2, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Fun, easy to use and entertaining;;June Walker;;;I wrote this review as a caution to other “Makers” who may be interested in this product. I was excited when I saw the Cricut maker, with it’s indexable rotary cutter and knife blade. I have a drag knife that I use with a vacuum table on my CNC router, but sometimes its just too big of a pain to get it set up for small projects. I though this Maker machine would replace my drag knife, at least on small projects. In general, I think the machine has great potential, assuming it functions as advertised. (I was not able to actually use the machine before I returned it) The problem is with their design software. I’m sure the machine works well for someone cutting quilt blocks, scrapbooking or cutting iron-on’s, but does not work well for applications requiring dimensional accuracy. Here are a few of the issues I found: 1. The knife blade is not yet available (I knew that going in, but it is now more than 6 months since it was first promised) There are a lot of review sites touting it’s virtues, but it is not clear if anyone, outside of Cricut, has actually seen one in real life. 2. His device works only when connected to the Cricut cloud. (for windows users) Every other peripheral device I use, from desktop printer to CNC plasma cutter, will work without an internet connection. Most have some method of working autonomously via SD card or local network connection to network storage. Not so with Cricut, as they must bless every design before allowing it to stream to one of their devices. 3. You MUST use the Cricut Design Space cloud software for all designs. Although you can import graphics from other software, the final design to be sent to the cutter exists only in the cloud within the “Design Space” application. 4. THE DEAL BREAKER: There is no precise way to scale or position elements within the Design space application. Although you can change the “Size” and “Position” within the app, these are actually the size of a bounding box around the object, and the position of the center of that bounding box. When objects on different layers are not symmetric, the resulting bounding box positions are completely meaningless. Their current workflow is; nudge, stretch, cut, adjust, repeat. A complete waste of time and materials, given that you design was of the correct size and position before it was imported. In conclusion, this device has great potential, but has been rendered useless for dimensionally accurate projects by poorly designed software. If Cricut really want to expand into the “Maker” space, I think these shortcomings will need to be addressed.;;Reviewed in the United States on March 21, 2018;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;Poor Design Space Software;;Amazon Customer;;;I'm a big fan of cutting machines. I use them in my business: Selling stencils and making stencils and specialitiy multi-media wood signs. I already have the Brother Scan N Cut 350 and the Brother 650 (available only at sewing stores/no online). I purchased the Cricut Maker to see the differences. THERE ARE A LOT OF DIFFERENCES!!! But the Cricut is good, in it's own way. My Brother Scan N Cut 350 paid for itself in 8 weeks with online sales (Amazon/Ebay) of stencils and signs I was able to sell. I'm about 1/2 way done (in two months paying for the Scan N Cut 650/$750.00)....The Cricut is amazing, too,....but different. The Brothers are STAND ALONE MACHINES/no computer needed. I left a big review on Amazon of the 350. You have a screen which guides the whole process. This frees up your computer for sales, marketing, emails, etc. The Cricut Maker MUST BE HOOKED UP TO SOME KIND OF COMPUTER or smart phone. I bought a small $200 tablet, and set it next in between my big computer and my Cricut Maker. The tablet uses the existing Wi-fi already in the house, and does not cost me anything extra each month. TO USE THE CRICUT, YOU MUST SUBSCRIBE TO CRICUT DESIGN SPACE. No if's, and's or but's. It is $5/mo for fonts only, and $10/mo for fonts, images, etc. Some images cost more money each. The big plus the Cricut Maker has is all the fonts. My oh, my....SO MANY FONTS for the Maker and in Cricut Design Space. The Brother 350 has about 10 fonts, the 650 has about 16 fonts. The Maker has tons and tons. For someone who makes their living doing graphic design, stencils, and wood signs...the Maker/Design Space is paradise. Now that I invested in the $200 tablet, my Maker also has a "screen" ., like my Brother does. Using Cricut Design Space is definitely SLOWER than using your Brother Scan N Cut ('cuz others are using it worldwide, too...not just you). Both Maker and Brother cut: cardstock, vinyl, kraft paper, light woods, felt, fabric, etc. You just need to purchase proper blades. That is the same. Both Maker and Brother require you to tend to/take care of your cutting mats. Light mats for light items, strong mats/adhesives for heavier items. Sooooo, if you are just starting out: Brother Scan N Cut 350 is good to learn/no computer required and no monthly fee. Brother 650 is even better, but about double the price...and you'll have to drive 30/60 miles to a sewing machine store to get it. No computer/no monthly fee. When you're ready to rock...then the Maker. $400 for machine, another $100 for all the blades/mats. Then a computer/smart phone/tablet to actually have a "screen"/$100-$200; then the monthly fee: $5/$10......If you like to be able to cut AND use your computer/phone simultaneously, you might not like it. I'll be making a Youtube video soon to show people all 3 of my machines: Cricut Maker, Brother ScanN Cut 350 and Brother ScanNCut 650 and see the differences....SO FAR SO GOOD.

Now that I invested in the $200 tablet, my Maker also has a "screen" ., like my Brother does. Using Cricut Design Space is definitely SLOWER than using your Brother Scan N Cut ('cuz others are using it worldwide, too...not just you). Both Maker and Brother cut: cardstock, vinyl, kraft paper, light woods, felt, fabric, etc. You just need to purchase proper blades. That is the same. Both Maker and Brother require you to tend to/take care of your cutting mats. Light mats for light items, strong mats/adhesives for heavier items. Sooooo, if you are just starting out: Brother Scan N Cut 350 is good to learn/no computer required and no monthly fee. Brother 650 is even better, but about double the price...and you'll have to drive 30/60 miles to a sewing machine store to get it. No computer/no monthly fee. When you're ready to rock...then the Maker. $400 for machine, another $100 for all the blades/mats. Then a computer/smart phone/tablet to actually have a "screen"/$100-$200; then the monthly fee: $5/$10......If you like to be able to cut AND use your computer/phone simultaneously, you might not like it. I'll be making a Youtube video soon to show people all 3 of my machines: Cricut Maker, Brother ScanN Cut 350 and Brother ScanNCut 650 and see the differences....SO FAR SO GOOD. Like it.
