What is a smart cutting machine?

Cricut smart machines are powered by electricity and controlled by computer software using digital files such as SVG’s, you do not need metal dies anymore. This means you can resize or edit the images, which offers you infinitely more possibilities than with physical dies. The machine has a housed blade to cut hundreds of materials using an adhesive mat to hold your material in place during the cutting process. Some materials can be loaded directly into the machine without a mat.
