When it’s time to send your project to the machine, the Material Size indicator on the Project Preview screen shows how much material you need based on your design and how many project copies you enter. Cricut Joy machines have sensors that measure the length of your Smart Materials or machine mat, and will not proceed unless Smart Materials or mat are long enough for your design.
Tip: When working without a mat, wait to trim Smart Materials until cut is complete to ensure you have enough material.
