I have had my Cricut Create for about 6 months and understood that it would cut chipboard. I have purchased the deep cut blade and holder but having tried it out find that it is only cutting the surface of the chipboard. I have the blade depth on 6 and the speed and depth at 5 (max) but it still wont cut through. I tried reloading and cutting in the same place but that was no good either. Any help would be really appreciated.

I have the Expression which has a multi cut function button on it, does your Create have that button?

How thick is your chipboard?


Here's some info on the different thickness and settings needed:
.022- this is like a heavy cardstock, blade:5-6, pressure:max, speed: 4, multi cut:2

.024- think cereal box- same as .022, if clay coated, multi cut:3

.028- IDEAL for cricut usage! blade:6, pressure:max, speed: 4-5 multi cut:4

.032- Compared to the .028 the difference in thickness is nominal.

.040+ is too thick, the blade depth is insufficient to make it through the thickness. It will go thru the machine, but you will have to hand cut it the rest of the way.

Thank you scrapalette.... that is very useful information. Perhaps the chipboard I am using is too thick. I shall have to measure it.

You will want to consider purchasing a deep blade and deep blade housing. If you have an expresson or expression 2 you can use the multi cut feature. The web site does have some helpful links and cutting guides http://content.provocraf...de_CricutExpression2.pdf

Happy Crafting
