Make It Big – Get to know Cricut Venture

Say hello to Cricut Venture — the new large-format cutting machine from Cricut

Sleek and friendly on the eyes, this new large-format machine combines the Cricut quality you love with commercial speeds and even greater precision. Say hello to Cricut Venture! 

What makes this cutting machine different from other Cricut cutting machines? Take a look. 

Is Cricut Venture just a larger, wider version of Cricut Explore 3 or Cricut Maker 3? Nope! Our engineering team could have done that, but they looked at every detail of our cutting machines and took them to the next level. They started from the ground up and took a hard look at which types of motors made the most sense so that Cricut Venture could cut at commercial speeds (up to 25 in/sec) at a wider width (24 in wide) with even greater precision (Mechanical Resolution: 0.006 mm/step, Software Resolution: 0.025 mm, Repetition Accuracy: ± 0.1 mm). Did we mention it can cut repeated images up to 75 ft long? Something else that sets Cricut Venture apart from other Cricut cutting machines is that it sits at a 45-degree angle. This is especially helpful when using a performance machine mat for any specialty material or cardstock. If this larger, wider machine didn’t have this angle and was a front-loading machine like other Cricut cutting machines, it would require around 3 feet behind and 3 feet in front of the machine for mat allowance. Cricut Venture was carefully designed to save space and fit in your home.

Why does this all matter? For those that are making big projects or making batches of things in bulk, Cricut Venture allows you to make more in less time. So, whether you’re an avid volunteer for your community, you have a side hustle that is on the cusp of booming, or you simply want to take your DIY game to the next level, Cricut Venture opens new possibilities.

Cricut Venture is packed with functionality. It can cut the most popular materials in addition to drawing, scoring, foiling and supporting Print then Cut up to 24 in x 28 in. With a force of up to 400 gf, you can look forward to cutting and making with 100+ materials (see full list of materials Cricut Venture cuts) so you can make huge paper flowers, large 3D paper projects, extra-large vinyl wall decals, and batches of sweatshirts or other apparel items. 

Cricut Venture isn’t the only new thing. With its launch also comes an assortment of materials and accessories that will enable you to make it big. If you’re into cutting specialty material or like making with poster and cardstock, you’ll love the new Performance Machine Mats that come in 2 sizes: 24 in x 12 in and 24 in x 28 in. This machine sits on an angle and cuts faster, we had to redesign mats to keep up with the speeds and forces of this machine. Using the current machine mats that you have in Cricut Venture would shred your mats. These stronger, more durable Performance Machine Mats come in the same three grips that you know and love: Light Grip, Standard Grip and Strong Grip. These mats are great for drawing on posterboard, making batches of stickers, scoring with cardstock and even for using various scraps in one go!

When making a project that doesn’t require a mat, Smart Materials will allow you to just load material directly into Cricut Venture and start cutting faster! Using Smart Materials means you can cut longer, larger designs without having to piecemeal parts together. They’re especially useful when making projects in bulk so you don’t have to load multiple mats after another. 

Cricut Venture isn’t only just a pretty machine, its design ensures making at home is still possible (and enjoyable!). Have you noticed the unique 45-degree angle this cutting machine has? Our team carefully designed this cutting machine to have a small footprint but large impact. It’s designed to sit at the edge of a table so when cutting on a mat, you don’t need to have 3 ft behind and 3 ft in front of the machine to operate. But if you’re tight on table space or want an even more functional storage solution, check out Docking Stand for Cricut Venture!

The Docking Stand for Cricut Venture is the perfect place for Cricut Venture to live. It has docking posts that keep the machine locked in place as well as roll holders to set and hold your rolls of Smart Material. There are also antistatic catch baskets on either side of the machine that help keep your Smart Material nice, clean, and off the floor. Easy-glide wheels allow you to move the machine around in your making space, or store away the machine when not needed. Equally, if you were wondering where to store this machine’s new and large Performance Machine Mats, there are hooks in between the catch baskets for you to conveniently store mats.
