Cricut and Cutting Files

UPDATE: 6-10-14
The Cricut Maker, Air & Explore machines along with the design space products from Provo Craft  will allow the use of our files (SVG, PNG and JPG formats).

Any other products from Provocraft:
Cricut Expression, Cricut Imagine, Gypsy, and all other previous Cricut machines will NOT work with our files. 
Info as of 6-2011
There are currently Six different types of Cricut machines on the market. 
The Cricut (Sometimes referred to as the baby bug)
The Cricut Expression (Sometimes referred to as the "E")
The Cricut Create, 
The Cricut Cake.
The Cricut Imagine
The Cricut Expression2

All of these machines work with Provocraft's cartridges, gypsy, design studio or craft room.
Note: Imagine Cartridges Work With The Imagine. SOME of them work with others. Check compatibility before purchasing.
Provocraft has also developed three additional "peripherals" to work hand in hand with their machines. The Design Studio Software,  the Gypsy Handheld Design Studio for Cricut and now the craft room.
The Design Studio is software that installs onto your computer and allows you to plug your computer to your Cricut Machine and cut designs that you can create in conjunction with your Cricut Cartridges. The Gypsy allows you to do the same without the use of a computer and additionally allows you to store the content of your cartridges to make remote creation easy.
Now the Cricut craft room allows you to utilize their online software with their cartridge system to create your own version of files, etc. This is all their own proprietary software and files and are completely INCOMPATIBLE with the cut files sold here at 

We are unaware of any existing third party software that will allow you to use your Cricut with our Cutting Files. 
We are no longer aware of any software that is compatible with the Cricut and Cricut products. The only way to use the Cricut with our files is if you have an older version of some third party software products that used to be compatible with the Cricut.

As of 3-16-2011
Make The Cut Software (MTC) no longer supports the use of Provocraft(Cricut)machines. Please note: MTC is still compatible with several other cutters on the market not limited to
  • Black Cat Cougar and Lynx
  • Boss Kut Gazelle
  • USCutters MH/LaserPoint Series
  • Craftwell eCraft
  • Any cutter machines that support HPGL printing (Craft ROBO, Silhouette, etc)
  • And many more to come in the near future :)
As of 3-16-2011, In order for you to utilize your Cricut Machine to be able to cut the SVG files we create, you must have a Cricut Machine and a third party software AND your firmware cannot be updated past the 2.34 version. Additionally the Imagine and the Expression2 will automatically come with the incompatibility built in. You WILL NOT be able to use ANY of the third party software to use our files with those machines.
