Maker engraver & precision tip in clamp B

I have been getting a lot of questions lately on which side of the Maker the engraving tip and precision tip go on. It is always on the right side in place of the blade as shown in the picture. Make sure you set your project to cut. If you set it to score it will ask you to put the engraver on the left side, which it will not fit on. When you send your project to be engraved make sure that you choose a blade for your project. Notice it says no tool is required in clamp A. If it is saying you need a tool in clamp A you need to change to a different setting.

What of it comes up no blade detected because of the blade detector?

will you be making a holder for the a side so it can be used on that side as well. It engraves beautifully but I didn't consider when I was getting it that it wouldn't be able to fill in the letters in he B side housing.

There maybe two reasons you are getting so many requests for an engraving tip in slot A.

First, there is a Youtube video at the following link that uses one of your tips for another machine in slot A of the Cricut Maker. The video shows us your tip at about 6:43 minutes into this 10 minute video. This is probably what people are looking for but the video and description do not tell us which tip she used.

Personally, I would not risk ruining my expensive Maker machine by putting a tip in slot A that is not designed for that slot. Too many things could go terribly wrong. Especially if glass shards go flying into an eye as what could have happened in the above video when her glass broke while engraving.

Second, Slot A is the only slot the Cricut Maker uses for scoring or writing. It is impossible to scribe and cut in one step the way Design Space functions. The only solution is to put an engraving tip in slot A and do a score & cut in one step. With your tip in slot B, this work becomes a two step process that is very very very hard to accurately line up the information so that it does not run over what is cut.

I hope this information was helpful to your website viewers and blesses your business. I love what you are doing, and I am totally glad your products are made in the USA. Thank you.

My explore Air 2 machine does not fit the device when used in clamp A. The pen attachment is of course removed.
