Please, Char, this is simply not true. I can speak for myself and my crafty friends, we purchased this machine because there were no real life people demoing or reviewing the machine. We wanted to see what it can do in real life. With all due respect, please don't speak for me..... Thank you.

ETA: If I like the X and if it performs as promised, I keep it. If the X doesn't perform as promised, it goes back. I don't LOVE anything I have never seen.

ETA2: To be honest, I have no idea what I bought. The blog Paulette has shared has just given me some real reason to be optimistic, but I am still in in wait and see mode.



I wouldn't get to excited about this gal's post. Her #5 reason " Cut Wirelessly AND From Your iPad: This is HUGE!!! While these treasures are not available quite yet, all of the machines have a port for a wireless adaptor (it will be around $50). Cricut has also developed an app for Design Space so that you can create exactly like you would on your desktop on your iPad.

This it completely wrong and misleading. You would think that she would have her facts straight since she is one of the bloggers that has been hired by Provo Craft to design make it now projects and she has been flown to Cricut headquaters and worked with the software and machine numerous times. She even "pinkie promises" with Ashish (Sorry I don't know how to spell his name). There is not, nada,none, creating/designing on your Ipad (or any other tablet) like you can do on your desktop. That is just not true. Melissa

I saw that..... Hence, wait and see mode...... Thanks for pointing that out, Moxxy. I am not sure why she said create on ipad exactly as you would on your desktop. PC has stated the iOS app is for "make it now projects"..... Has this changed?

WRITE means the pen writing/drawing.
PRINT has been used both as the pen drawing or as printing a full page like a normal printer (laser, ink jet) which is causing confusion.

The controversy is mostly about figuring out the terminology and settling in on consistent words.

"Print and cut" has widely been used to mean printing something with a printer and then cutting it with a cutter. PC has now coined the term "print then cut" (which I'd never seen before).

Because the Explore has dual heads it can "print" (really draw or write) and cut at the same time.

The Explore also has a sensor built into it to detect registration marks like the SC. But this sensor will not be enabled until sometime in the future. So "print then cut" or the typical term "print and cut" does not work out of the box.


Tracy, so sorry I missed this! I highlighted what you wrote, because I am a bit confused. I know that they are spelled differently, but what I can't figure out is what the difference is, as it is highlighted. Usually when I write my name I either sign it or print it. As far as a printer, I own one, I'm no expert, but I kinda know what it does. So, sorry if in the "Explore" world I don't know the right terminology, I don't own the machine, so yes there is a lot to be confused about it. So, if I am missing something, please feel free to fill me in!

Thank you!!

I'm not sure when they added FIREFOX and SAFARI (Firefox might come from IE, anyway...not sure); because for a LONG time they only showed Internet Explorer as the preferred browser. (Maybe you have a date when these got added....I hope you do)!

I'm glad they added the others; I'm sure they could probably add more.

Thanks for the information.

I'm am a little confused because there are several snarky debates and a couple how-to conversations going on at the same time, but the one I am chiming in on is the quote above. I am not being snarky in any way - I'm just uninformed.

I found the referenced blog post to be really exciting so I am a little disappointed about the highlighted point of clarification because it does discredit the blogger a bit. I am interested in knowing if she is spitting out inaccurate information and praise. Is it possible that she is correct and the app will apply to make-it-now projects and allow for designing? I am not being sarcastic, I am truly curious (and hopeful). How do we know it is a "make-it-now" app only? I haven't read the statement from Provocraft except from paraphrasing and exerts on this thread. I'd like to know where I can read or hear the PC statements that limit the app to just make it now. Not b/c a full function tablet app is critical for me, but because I was really impressed with the bloggers overview and switch from the competition to Cricut. If she doesn't have a handle on the features she is writing about I want to know. My hope is that perhaps she is referring to a function of the app that will be released down the road and is not referencing the app that is due in the next few months. Someone educate me.

I think that blogger knows more than PC has officially released. There is a post, somewhere in some of these threads, where CricutGena stated the app will focus on the Make it Now projects when released. Some are convinced that means the app is only for the Make it Now projects. I don't know. I've seen more than one blogger mention the design capabilities.

I love Cricut, especially the Cricut Expression 2. I just bought another one before Christmas and before I heard about the new Explorer.Mad
I do intend to buy the Explorer in the future. One major question that I have is what happens to my cartridges that are linked to the Gypsy? The second question, is if the Explorer will develop into a Wi-Fi unit like the Expression did. I would prefer that because I am old fashioned and only have a desk top PC.
I will be totally surprised if there are not problems with this first launch. Remember how bad it was with the Expression 2?Crying

Your cartridges that are linked to the gypsy need to be uploaded in CCR.
There is already problems with this launch.
People ordered it including me. We don't even know if we are getting the Explore.
HSN told me that if I don't receive it by March 12 they are cancelling my order.
Someone else was told by HSN that PC never shipped the Explore to HSN yet.
I'm so upset. HSN has been cold and indifferent when you call about your order.
We've heard nothing from PC as far as if the machines are going to get to HSN.
I personally don't care where HSN warehouses are located.
When I purchased the Explore it was in Stock. Now they are sold out.
Then I hear no PC never shipped them. IDK what to believe.
I was excited to purchase the Explore and now I'm upset because IDK if I'm even going to get it.
This is suppose to be my Birthday present.
So there are problems already.

I ordered one and was told it would receive it by March 18. I have not received any emails and when I called HSN to confirm (after I read posts on this MB) they were very kind and helpful and I still have a receive date of March 18.

I agree with you Granny, waiting to purchase one possibly in the future, I will be waiting hear and see tutorials on what it can do to it's fullest capacity, then and only then will I make my decision... which I is what I always do anyways. Let's just say, curiosity has definitely gotten the best of me, lol. I'm hoping it all works out, even though I did cave and got "the other machine" this past Christmas, I still haven't used it as of yet. So we will see what the future will bring, fingers crossed!!!
