There are two ways to connect to the Cricut Maker. The first way is to log in on the computer directly next to the vinyl cutter and connect via USB. The second way is to connect your iPad through Bluetooth. I recommend this second when there are numerous students waiting to use the device. Only one student can connect at a time, but you can still get everything organized on your iPad and ready for cutting.
Please watch the video below to learn how to connect your iPad to the vinyl cutter through Bluetooth. If the power button on the device is white, no one is connected. Once someone does connect, the power button on the device will turn blue. They will need to disconnect before someone else can connect.
