Why Choose the Cricut Explore Air 2?
The Cricut Explore Air 2 is gorgeous! Mint and gold are such an on-trend colors, plus there are more lovely color combinations still to come. More importantly, this machine has really got it going on in terms of power. With the new “Fast Mode” setting, the Cricut Explore Air 2 cuts and writes up to 2x faster than the previous model!
Like the original Cricut Explore Air (the model that I use), this latest model:
- Is fully compatible with all Cricut cartridges and Design Space projects
- Cuts over 100 materials
- Can score and write when you plug the Scoring Stylus or a compatible pen into the second machine head
- Has embedded Bluetooth wireless technology
- Works with Cricut’s free, cloud-based software, so you can design on the go with your iPhone, iPad, or laptop
- Cuts any non-Cricut SVG, JPG, PNG, and DXF files that you upload to Design Space
- Allows you to send full-color designs to your printer and then cut them out with your machine
However, the real benefit to this new model is its increased cutting and writing speed. When set to “Fast Mode” in Design Space, the Cricut Explore Air 2 is a DIY speed machine. When every second of your time counts — and it always does — the Cricut Explore Air 2 is definitely the tool to have at your side!
