Design Space: New Machine Setup

Disclosure: I receive a commission if you purchase some or all links on this page.

How to Find It

  • Windows: ≡ Menu -> New Machine Setup
  • Android App: Menu -> Machine Setup & App Overview
  • iOS Device: Not Available (10/29/18)
  • Online:


The Design Space web site and apps (except iOS devices) have a menu item to set up your new machine. 

The process starts with clicking the button, then the app/website walks you through the rest of the processes.  The process will go something like:

  • Plug in your Cricut machine and turn it on.
  • Connect it via USB or pair it via Bluetooth to your computer or device
  • Download the app (if on a device) or go to the website (computer)
  • Create a account
  • Follow the prompts in the New Machine Setup procedure

Cricut’s help site is here: I recommend their site for this as it will always have the most up-to-date information.

This process works for the Cricut Explore, Explore One, Explore Air, Explore Air 2, or Cricut Maker machines.

If you need a new machine, click on the Maker, below, to go to Cricut’s store to find out more about their Maker and other machines. I’ll get a small commission if you purchase from this link (and the only link on this page that is an affiliate link).
