Things to know before using Perforation Blades
- Perforation Blade is compatible with Cricut Maker only and requires a QuickSwap Housing.
- As you load the tool into the machine, do not press the button on top of the housing. Doing so may cause the tip to release.
- Perforation Blade is sharp! Use caution when handling.
- Perforation Blade comes with a protective cap. When swapping tips, leave cap in place. Remove cap before installing tool in Clamp B.
- We do not recommend cutting intricate designs with Perforation Blade. Due to the curved nature of the blade, it executes a slight overcut of the image paths in order to ensure the full length of the path is completely cut. This may cause it to cut over adjacent cut paths that are too close.
- We recommend cutting images no smaller than 3/4" in size, with space between cut paths at least 3/4" or more.
- The appearance of the Perf Linetype on the Design Space Canvas is an approximation only and does not represent the cut/gap distribution of the final result.
- We do not recommend adding an additional pass at the end of a cut as perforation cuts may not align.
- Due to gaps in the blade that provide the perforated result, starting and ending points of an image may not connect.
