I'd be embarrassed to post what I've made. My pages are all kind of boring. I'm not sure if you know about it but on pinterest you can find lots of free svg files to use so no ink scape.

I found a new cricut expression nib on eBay. I question the seller what firmware it had. All he could tell me was that it was version 1. Do you know if all version 1s have the correct firmware?

Can you post a link to it for me and I will look? It should have the right version if it's an E(1). The seller probably doesn't want to open the box, unpack it and plug it in to have firmware pop up on the screen. I keep all our electronic boxes in case we have to move because I like them packed properly (we get transferred often). So I have my original packaging. If you post the link I'll take a look and compare.

So I recontacted this person selling the expression to make sure the picture was an accurate description of what I was getting. She kindly jumped on me for using illegal software. LOL, but never told me yay or nay on a exact depiction. I think I will keep on looking.

I was in the same boat, in terms of wishing I had bought the 12"x12". When my Create died I searched on the net and found the Expression. If you can find one, and you will, if you search online, it has the same firmware required for SCAL - I LUV SCAL! Anyhoo, just because they settled with PC, doesn't mean PC recalled all the machines they have at various stores and changed the firmware in them, SCAL2 WILL NOT work with the Expression2. But again, I LUV SCAL Keep a smile M.



I'm not great with the abbreviations around here yet (although I am catching on) what is SCAL?

SCAL stands for Sure Cuts a Lot - it was a software program you could buy prior to May 2011 that would allow you to work with the Cricut without needing cartridges (well you needed one in the machine, but that was it). Provo Craft (PC) sued the makers of SCAL (Craft Edge) and in a settlement Craft Edge agreed not to sell it anymore. If you have the program it still works with the PC E1's. You can still buy the program on eBay. It allows you to cut any font you want and any .svg files amongst others. It's a fantastic program.

Oh that's the program I've seen all over ebay for sale lately while I've been looking at cartridges. Gotcha. Sounds really cool. I have the original Cricut, but didn't know anything about SCAL. The ones on Ebay for sale just make me a little leary, though. Thanks for the info!
