Cricut Maker VS Cricut Maker 3 – Which Cricut Machine is Right for you?
Choosing a new cutting machine can be an overwhelming task. With all the available machines on the market, one could get lost with information overload. It’s no secret that I love my Cricut Machines, so naturally, when I saw the Cricut Maker 3, I needed to know how it differed from the Maker. My friends over at Cricut were kind enough to send me a Cricut Maker 3 and I’m excited to share my real-time side-by-side comparison.
I created the in-depth video below for your consideration, in hopes that it will assist you in your decision-making process. With the holidays just around the corner, you may want to ask Santa for a Cricut Maker or Cricut Maker 3! 😉
I created a few projects to compare the speed and functionality of the Cricut Maker and the Cricut Maker 3. I’ve included the supply list below for your reference:
As described in my video, overall the Cricut Maker 3 is faster and the ability to cut without a mat is very attractive. There is a price point difference that you will need to consider, based on your crafting needs. Another minor point is the color choices. The Maker is more affordable and available in more colors, while the Cricut Maker 3 is new to the market and currently only available in the blue color shown. You will need to consider the additional cost of the SMART materials and optional Roll Holder.
The speed of the Cricut Maker 3 is very impressive, but with that being said, the Maker is no slouch. They both cut precisely and can cut over 300 materials with various blades. They both can draw and cut with precision. To summarize, the Cricut Maker 3 is the clear winner in my eyes it deserves a closer look if it is within your budget.
I hope you found my video informative. I’d love to hear from you! I can be found on all social media channels at @michellespartyplanit.
