  • Make sure that the lock icon is locked. Using the sizing information located in the PDF file (included with your download), type the dimension into the corresponding box and press Enter or Return on your keyboard.

  • . If your SVG contains score lines, click on the main layer of your SVG. Note: Although not discussed in this tutorial, it is possible to change the score layers to score using the Cricut Scoring tool instead of cutting. Cutting score lines instead of scoring with a scoring tool is completely normal and is typical in cutting systems that don't allow for scoring tools. Cutting score lines instead of scoring will not impact the final product.
  • Click Go to begin cutting your file.

What is Cricut Design Space Desktop and Why Is It Better?

Some of you may have used the web version of Cricut Design Space and have been perfectly happy with it. Others of you may have experienced the frustration of a plug-in update at the most inconvenient time, a crappy internet connection or have wanted to create without needing wi-fi.

The main Design Space Desktop benefits are two-fold. First, having it downloaded on your computer means it will be much more stable and it will be faster communicating with the machines during cutting. You won’t have to do plug-in updates anymore because the app on the computer will update itself. The other huge benefit is that you can finally design and cut offline.

It is important to note that whether you want to use Design Space offline or not, you will need to download the desktop version. Soon, if you go to the web address that we have been using, you will be prompted to download the desktop app and the web-based version will be gone.

How to Download Cricut Design Space for Desktop ?

We'’ll walk you through how to download Design Space for Desktop step-by-step.

  • Go to the web version of Design Space at Cricut Design Space. It will give you the option to download the desktop version.
  • Click the “Download” button. A new screen will come up with a green “download” button. Click it and the download will begin.
  • I have a Mac, but the general idea is the same if you are using a PC. Once the download begins it will be downloaded to the downloads folder.
  • Find the download and double click it to open and install it. On a Mac simply drag the icon onto the application folder to install it.
  • Once it is installed, you can begin using Design Space by clicking the icon on your desktop (or wherever your computer chose to save it) instead of going to the website.
