The cricut machine is hands down one of the best things that happened to crafters. It makes the whole craft-making process a breeze and gives you the desired results every time. When the original Cricut Maker was released, it was considered a game changer. In terms of speed and cutting force, no machine from Explore series could outperform it. Also, various tools and blades were exclusively designed for Cricut Maker, further expanding its capabilities. If you are considering upgrading from Explore series to Maker, you can go for it, as they all are compatible with Design Space. To download the latest version of Design Space, visit cricut.com/setup .
