25:08 How to Get More Help with Cricut Explore 3 and Maker 3
The Cricut Explore 3 and Cricut Maker 3 are computer-guided cutting machines, and they are the next generation in a long line of machines. This is their latest, and — maybe — your greatest! If you’re not yet familiar with what a smart cutting machine like this does, and how it can help you, basically they can cut a wide range of materials such as vinyl, paper, and iron on in intricate designs, quickly and precisely. Which makes all of those projects so much faster and so much more fun. Cricut cutting machines can also use extra tools to write, draw, and foil!
So what’s the difference, and — more importantly — what’s new about these next generation machines?
The big difference between the Explore 3 and the Maker 3 are the tools and cutting force — the Explore works by dragging the blade across the material, while the Maker works by actively positioning and turning the blade as needed. This allows the Maker to cut more materials with ten times the force — up to 300 materials, in fact, everything the Explore can cut PLUS things like leather, basswood, and crepe paper. And it allows the Maker to use more tools — including the rotary tool, the knife tool, the engraving tool, the deboss tool, and scoring wheel. So the Explore works with six tools, while the Maker works with thirteen tools … and counting. The Maker has an expandable suite of tools, letting you grow with it.
So all of that is true of the current Explore and Maker machines … what’s NEW about these next generation machines? The Explore 3 and Maker 3 can now cut FASTER — up to two times as fast as the previous machines — and they can now cut certain materials without a mat. Yes, without a mat! I’m SO excited!
AND — get this — you can some materials cut up to 12 feet long!
Now, they can’t cut everything that long, nor cut everything without a mat, and they don’t cut everything faster, but I’ll explain what it does and doesn’t do when we talk about all of the materials later.
In addition to being able to make longer and faster cuts without a mat, the Cricut Explore 3 and Maker 3 can do print then cut on color paper as well as white paper, and they are both compatible with the optional roll holder to make it easier to cut from a roll, which I’ll show you later.
So first, let’s unbox both the Explore 3 and Maker 3 so I can show you how fast they are! First, the Explore 3! Inside the box we have an envelope with a quick start guide, a piece of black vinyl to use for our first cut, and the warranty and safety information. Let’s set these inside to get to the Explore 3 itself, which you can see here, along with the power cable and the USB cable for connecting to computers. There’s also a pack of bonus material here in the Cricut Explore 3 and Cricut Maker 3 box.
