Cricut vs Silhouette. Cricut Design Space is more intuitive for beginners, while Silhouette Studio offers more advanced design tools.
Both the Silhouette Cameo 4 and Cricut Maker are highly-technical machines. However, the Maker offers a greater range of tools.
Silhouette Cameo 4 can do matless cutting. Silhouette also has two new models that are wider for small-business cutting.
It is difficult to decide which craft cutter is better: Silhouette vs Cricut. Both companies make cutting machines with loyal customers. But, can you really say which one is better?
Cricut Maker is, by far, the best Cricut cutting machine. Silhouette Cameo 4 is also a great machine. Cameo 4 is the most powerful Silhouette machine.
We will be comparing side-by-side machines in a second, but for now we want to highlight some of the differences between the brands and how each seems to be growing while the other seems to have remained steady.
Cricut Design Space vs Silhouette Studio — Compare the Software
First, I want to say that both companies should be commended for providing the software for free before purchasing. This is a great help for people who have different levels of confidence when it comes learning new programs. To get an overview of the basics, you can download Silhouette Studio or Cricut Design Space and view hundreds of tutorial videos from the community or official sources.
It is important to note that Cricut Design Space, which is web-based and available only online, has many old reviews. This is no longer the case as of December 2019. Design Space can be downloaded to your computer to create and import files from the internet.
Cricut Design Space is easy for beginners, but robust enough for experienced users
Cricut Design Space is a basic graphic design program that mainly deals with text and shapes. This program was initially too simple for my crafting projects. But I started to play with it and found that I could create fairly detailed forms and outline using the basic shapes and the welding and cutting functions.
