1. Download and install Sure Cuts A Lot 4 from
http://www.craftedge.com/download

2. Download and install latest USB Driver
http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm

3. Download libcutter plugin from
https://github.com/DThunder1000/libcutter/archive/master.zip

4. Unzip the downloaded libcutter-master.zip and you will now need to copy the needed plugin files to your SCALCutPlugins folder which will be located in your Documents folder. if the SCALCutPlugins folder does not exist, you will need to run Sure Cuts A Lot so all the default folders for the program get created and then quit the program.

- If using Windows, copy libcutter-master\Windows\Build\LibCutterPlugin.dll and libLibCutter.xml to
C:\Users\{YOUR USERNAME HERE}\Documents\SCALCutPlugins

- If using Mac, copy libcutter-master\Mac\Build\libLibCutterPlugin.dylib and libLibCutter.xml to
{MAC DRIVE}/Users/{YOUR USERNAME HERE}/Documents/SCALCutPlugins

5. Start Sure Cuts A Lot and go to the Cutter menu and choose Manage Cutters. You should now be able to choose Cricut from the Company/Brand drop down list and click <-- Add to list.

6. Sure Cuts A Lot should now be able to make a connection to your Cricut, however in order to cut correctly, a valid key file is needed. This is not included with the plugin due to the DMCA rules, however it can be found elsewhere. The key file must be renamed to keys.h and also be placed in the SCALCutPlugins folder we just copied the libcutter files to in step 4.

Key download links:

Here is an interesting read with regards to the libcutter project and the DMCA

Provo Craft does not legally permit 3rd party software programs to work with their Cricut cutters. After SCAL2, Craft Edge had to remove Cricut from its available list of compatible cutters. That being said, you can use SCAL4 for designing and then export as SVG with a special "Design Space" option to mark in that SVG export window. This ensures the design is sized properly to cut to your Cricut from that program.

Please contact Cricut and encourage them to release the encryption keys and/or open source drivers now for pre-Explore machines now that CCR is closing and cartridges have been discontinued. There's no reason this should be illegal on an otherwise useless machine.

Also to clarify, the libcut hack is for the Expression and earlier machines. Sandy's suggestion is for Explore and later machines.
