Okay... probably a dumb question, but if I buy a digital cartridge - I understand I can only use it in the Craft Room - but does it actually cut out the images on my Cricut or what? How does it work? I have a Cricut Personal Electronic Cutter I got from HSN for Christmas if that helps. Just not sure how the digital aspect works.

Yes it will cut out the images on the Cricut..you have to connect the machine to your computer. I'm not really sure if it works with the Personal Cutter tho? I've never used it but most people use it with the Expression. Is your mat size 6 x 12? or 12 x 12?

The digital cart images that you purchase are stored in your cricut.com account. You log into CCR using your cricut.com account username and password. When you are ready to CUT from CCR, it knows which images you have access to and will send those to your Cricut to cut.

Okay, on this topic, where do you go or how do you buy the digital cartridges?

Click on the Shopping tab at the top of this screen and login if necessary.

There's two places you'll find digital carts. The first is the Cricut Craft Room Exclusives.

The other is in the Cartridges section - Digital Cartridges.

Once your purchase shows as finalized in your account you'll be able to cut with them in CCR.

I'm guessing because of Provo Craft's stringent rules, you can't use free SVG files in any way with any of the cutters... is that true?

Not sure what rules you're referring to, but Cricut machines and ProvoCraft's design programs can only read .ccr, .gypsy and .cut files. They cannot read .svg nor any other file extension (.gsd, .wpc, .dfx, etc). Other cutters can't read .ccr, .gypsy and .cut files.

I've been told by others, and found in my own research, that there is/was software you could buy and use with the Cricuts that would allow you to import your own images and cut them. But Provo Craft sued at least one, possibly both of the two companies who made the two programs for copyright infringement (I believe it was) and the programs no longer work with the Cricut machines. That's what I was referring to. I must have used the wrong file extension (which doesn't surprise me!) but my question was really about whether there is a way to import free images or not.

(I've been dealing with vertigo issues which are making me dizzy, in addition to making my brain fuzzy. If I don't make sense, PLEASE bear with me and tell me to clarify! Cool )

Can someone please clarify for me.......if I purchase a digital cartridge (not a craft room exclusive) but a digital one, will it link to my gypsy so I can create and cut those images from my gypsy instead of CCR?? Thank you!!

There were actually 3 other software programs that were able to send different cutting files to a Cricut. But, those programs are no longer sold with Circut compatibility. PC developed the Cricut to be cart based and that's the way they want to keep it. So, no you cannot import images into CCR {or DS or a gypsy}. I was just trying to point out that the other cutters can't read PC's cutting files either, so the block goes both ways.

There are free .cut files, .ccr files and .gypsy files that you can use if you have the carts the designs are made with.

All of your digital purchases (whether full carts or CCR exclusives) are linked to your cricut.com account and should be available on your gypsy after your purchase is completed and you update your gypsy.

the question is though....Can you use the digital images on the gypsy like you do your linked cartridges without having to be connected to CCR. For example: Let's say I don't have an internet connection and I want to use a digital cart that I have purchased and downloaded/linked to my Gypsy. Can I create and cut with it?

That makes sense. I wasn't sure about the type of file. Still new to all this stuff!!

Yes! Digital carts you purchase will appear on your gypsy as a linked cart after each Hello Thursday update. If you purchase a digital cart after Hello Thursday (the third Thursday of each month) it will be updated the next Hello Thursday.
