Why is my Cricut cutting wrong?

Glossy paper may interfere with the machine's ability to read the cut sensor marks. We recommend using matte paper instead. Any smudges that appear around the cut sensor marks on your printable material could cause the Cricut machine to mistake the smudges for cut sensor marks.

Similarly, you may ask, why is my Cricut not cutting properly?

Ensure that you are using a Cricut brand blade. Then inspect the blade and blade housing and remove any debris that may be stuck to the blade or lodged in the blade housing. Once clean, perform a test cut. You may need to increase the pressure settings 2-3 times by increments of 2-4 to see a change in the cut result.

Additionally, how do I calibrate my Cricut print and cut? Sign in to the Cricut Design Space iOS app and tap on the account menu (image of a person in the upper left corner). Select "Print Then Cut Calibration." The Print Then Cut calibration window will appear. The first step is to print out the calibration sheet on your home printer.

Also asked, why is my Cricut cutting too high?

If the cut path is too high on both the top and bottom lines, then you will need to increase the offset for the Top-Bottom offset setting. If the cut path is too far to the left on both the left and right side of the image, then you will need to increase the Left-Right offset setting.

How do I sharpen my Cricut blade?

  1. Check your blades for dust before attempting to sharpen them.
  2. Sharpen the blades by using heavy-duty aluminum foil.
  3. Tear a sheet of foil off and line it up on your Cricut machine.
  4. Create a file on your Cricut to cut three to four straight lines, three to four circles and three to four squares.
