When Cricut released the Maker, they said that they would be adding new tools. Today, they made good on their promise by adding four new additions to the QuickSwap system.
The Cricut Maker comes with the fine-point blade and the rotary blade for cutting fabric. In addition, you can also purchase the knife blade for thicker materials. Beyond those, all other tips and blades currently available are part of the QuickSwap System.
