I just recently purchased a Cricut Air Explore 2, my main use is to make spirit wear shirts for myself and family (my kids are in multiple sports and I am wanting to make spirit wear). I feel as if Design Space (for Cricut) is limited for what I am looking for. Does Sure Cuts A Lot offer any premium software (for me to design my own stuff) that is compatible with my Cricut Air Explore 2. Any advice is greatly appreciate as far as Sure Cuts a lot software, or other software. Thanks!

Provo Craft (parent company of Cricut) legally forbids 3rd party software programs, such as Sure Cuts A Lot, from cutting directly to their machines. In fact, about 8 years ago, Provo Craft sued three of these companies and the software programs had to be updated to no longer cut to the Cricut models at that time.

However, you CAN use SCAL to design most anything in your imagination and then export as SVG to open in Design Space. There's even a special option in the SVG export window for Design Space users.
