More information about the Cricut Engraving Tip with QuickSwap™ Housing
The tip marked with the number 41 is only compatible with Cricut Maker vinyl cutters, and can only be used with this tool holder.
No calibration required.
Make sure you choose the right cutting mat for the material you want to engrave.
The engraving function is available on Design Space® iOS and Android versions.
HOW TO CHANGE QUICKSWAP TIPS?
Press and hold the plunger on top of the housing until the tip is released.
Gently remove the tip from the tool holder.
While pressing the plunger, align flat areas on the new tip with the housing's flat sides.
Slide the tip into place.
Ensure the tip is firmly clamped.
Release the plunger to secure the tip.
Drop the housing into clamp “B”.
Do not press on the plunger to prevent the tip from coming out.
The engraving tip is sharp and must be handled carefully.
To minimise wear on the tip when engraving, the housing will be raised and rotate for a few seconds at regular intervals.
Be careful when handling engraved materials. Small fragments of the material may have come off. You can remove them with a lint roller or with a piece of adhesive tape.
If you observe irregularities on the edges after engraving, remove them with a polishing cloth or sandpaper (360-600 grit). We recommend you to try this on the back of the material beforehand, to make sure that it will not be scratched by this procedure.
Use compressed air or a soft cloth to remove any engraving residue that may have fallen into the vinyl cutter. Always wipe towards the outside of the machine.
Before engraving leather, smooth its surface with a dry sponge. This will soften its fibres, giving you better results.
