Wife was looking at a cricut at the Joanne’s this morning. I told her my cnc could do all that with the right cutter head… Guess who is now trying to mount a cricut blade to his CNC…April 8, 2018 at 12:19 pm #57178
Cool, the rotary blade is geared!April 8, 2018 at 12:44 pm #57179
For what she’s wanting to do, I think I can just get this:April 8, 2018 at 2:09 pm #57184
If all you’re doing is vinyl you’re good.April 9, 2018 at 5:42 am #57223
Vinyl, thin paper, Iron transfers.
One of the coolest things I saw while watching was the cricut makes a sticky hold down board. It has a light-weight tacky area that you can put the paper down onto. The backer is the same material as those big cutting mats. It looks like it gives an awesome place for the cutter to run over so that it doesn’t damage the tip.April 9, 2018 at 7:53 am #57226

Guess who better start thinking about building another MPCNC because they won’t have access to the one they have now anymore… 😉April 9, 2018 at 9:17 am #57239Guess who is now trying to mount a cricut blade to his CNC…

Cost-wise, I could just buy her a Cricut. I want to say my MPCNC was about $300 to get running.May 13, 2019 at 2:06 am #100291
Guess who’s just passing by spamming links and hopefully get banned from the forum…May 13, 2019 at 2:48 am #100292
I think the cricut blades are tangential cutters, so the rotation is driven by a motor, unlike a dragknife. If it rotates freely, it’ll probably work though.May 14, 2019 at 11:55 am #100462
My wife ended up getting a cricut from her mom for Christmas. We still haven’t had a chance to power it on and use it.
I’m sure it will do better than the MPCNC did, although I can’t complain. I got good results from all the cuts I did.
The last cut I did was to cut out a mask for a paint job I did on something. It came out well. Required minimal work with an exacto to clean up some of the sharper corners.
