There are other things you need when operating your Cricut like a cutting mat, cutting materials, and even one of the 13 tools Cricut makes. In this book, I only have information on Cricut Design Space. It does not cover those other tools and materials.

Die-cutting machines are also used for embossing, where an impression is made rather than a cut - find out all about embossing in our complete guide to embossing techniques article.
These machines cut using software that lets you create, upload, or purchase premade designs. To draw, you can attach a pen instead of a blade. A quick tour of Instagram hashtags (#cricutexploreair2, #cricutmaker3, #silhouettecameo, #silhouettecameo3) shows the wide range of projects that people can do with these machines.
During testing, we noticed the Maker 3 was a little slower than the Explore 3, but not to the extent that it bothered us. At its slowest, the Maker 3 took 3 minutes longer to finish a complicated doily from cardstock (the Explore 3 finished in 17 minutes versus 20 minutes for the Maker 3). Meanwhile, cutting simpler projects from vinyl only took a second longer, and it completed a mandala design using the pen tool 3 seconds faster. We think this is due to a heavier dampening system, which adds resistance, causing the tool to come down onto the cutting surface more slowly than it does on the Explore 3. So although the Maker 3 might be a bit slower, the blades and machine should last a little longer.
