To get optimal cut performance, sizing, and alignment, you should perform the Rotary blade calibration every time you change your Rotary blade.
Note: Rotary Blade calibration is available only for Cricut Maker machine and can be done only using a Windows/Mac computer at this time.
- Click on the account menu and select "Calibration".
- Select "Rotary Blade" from the window that appears.
- Insert the Rotary Blade, and load a sheet of plain printer paper onto your mat. Click "Continue."
- Select your machine from the drop-down menu (it may automatically populate in this field; double-check to be sure the correct machine is showing). Load the mat and paper into the machine.
- Press the flashing "Go" button to begin the calibration.
- The machine will cut 7 sets of lines. When the cuts are complete, you can remove the mat from the machine. Inspect the cut lines to find the set of lines that overlap the most.
- If you have difficulty seeing the lines, use a pencil and lightly color perpendicularly across the cuts to reveal the lines.
- Select the corresponding number from the drop-down menu for the set of lines that overlap the most.
- When you have made your selection, click "Continue".
- Your calibration is complete. You may close the window to return to the Canvas screen and continue with your project.
