What do I need to connect my Cricut Explore Air 2 to computer?

If you are connecting your Explore Air 2 machine via Bluetooth, you need a computer with in-built Bluetooth features. You also need a Cricut machine of any model. In addition, you should have a flat surface like a table or a floor to position your machine. Despite this, if you are connecting your Cricut via Bluetooth, you should have a USB cable instead of Bluetooth.

Can I connect all Cricut models to Bluetooth?

Not all Cricut models have Bluetooth connectivity. The Cricut Explore, Cricut Maker Setup, Joy, and Venture series are easily connectable via Bluetooth because they have built-in Bluetooth. However, older Cricut models, like the Explore One machine, require a wireless Bluetooth adapter. In short, all Cricut models except the Explore One can be connected using Bluetooth.

Why is my Cricut not connecting?

If your Cricut machine is not connecting to your device, you might need to check the following points:

  1. If you are connecting it to the USB cable, check whether your cable is damaged.
  2. You can change the USB port on your computer. If the issue persists, you need to replace the USB cord.
  3. If you use Bluetooth, ensure you have placed the device and machine within 10 to 15 feet of each other.
