A Cricut is a smart cutting/drawing machine that allows users to create a wide variety of items. Through the easy-to-use app, Design Space, Cricut users can design, create, and personlize almost anything imaginable.
There are mutiple models of Cricut machines with the most popular machines being the Cricut Joy, Cricut Explore, and the Cricut Maker.
The Cricut Maker is the model that is availbale for usage in ECU's Teaching Resources Center.
The Cricut is only available for usage during TRC service desk hours in the Schwarzmann Production Center
The Cricut will remain in the Schwarzmann Production Center at all times
