Hi looking for advice with my cricut explorer air2. Only had it Xmas, used it most days love it, but today it’s not been cutting right seems be ripping çard and dragging . Also seems be vibrating more than usual? Any advice ?
Also on average how long does a blade last the std one you get with the machine?

any help advice appreciated

    welcome to the Make The Cut software support forum. It is not a generic cutters forum. In addition, MTC does not work with Cricut cutters thanks to lawsuits by Provocraft. As a result, you will need to reach out to PC’s online support contacts on their home site or find a Cricut user support group on Facebook as there are several. Unfortunately, PC eliminated their official support forum like this one years ago.

    @utchshazza - check the tip of your blade, it sounds like it is chipped. You might also have some debris or bits of paper up the shaft of the blade. What do you cut? That will determine what lifespan you can expect from a blade.
    Still using MTC but slowly migrating to SCAL. KNK cutters including the Force and Maxx Air continue to be my favourites. Fluent in other cutter languages.
