The Scoring Stylus lets you use your
Cricut Explore machine to cut a shape and then score the fold lines in one step, perfect for making cards and 3D projects. Installing the Scoring Stylus is just like installing the pen. Start by opening
accessory clamp A. Holding the clamp in the up position, insert your Scoring
Stylus into the accessory adapter, tip side down, until you feel it click and
the arrow disappears. Then, close the clamp. Be sure the project you’re making requires the scoring tool. Generally, 3D objects or
cards that contain a fold line are a safe bet. How can you tell? Look for the
score marks on the image indicated by the solid gray lines. Once you’ve found
and edited your image, click Go and follow the on-screen prompts. Some
projects may include both drawing and scoring. If this is the case, Cricut
Design Space will prompt you when to install and use each accessory. Just
follow the instructions on-screen. Once your project is complete, press the Finish
button in the bottom right and unload your mat.
To remove the Scoring Stylus, open accessory clamp A, pull the Scoring Stylus straight up to remove it from the housing. Then, close the clamp. And that’s how to use the Scoring Stylus
with your Cricut Explore machine.
