Cricut Explore and Cricut Maker machines were designed to work with Design Space, our free, easy-to-use design software. But you can still use your Physical Cartridge content with these machines in Design Space. It's easy to link your cartridges to your account through Design Space using your Cricut Explore machine or a Cartridge Adapter.
Dec 09, 2020 · The Explore Air 2 uses Design Space, not cartridges, but it has a dock for cartridges so you can transfer your old projects to your account. If you have cartridges from an older Cricut machine (Explore, Explore One, Explore Air), then it’s another good reason to choose the Explore Air 2.
