How To Score On Cricut Without Scoring Tool. Remove the blade when your cricut joy calls for the pen in this case. When you send the project to the cricut maker, you’ll place the scoring wheel in clamp b, score the project, getting crisp creases with just one pass, then switch to the fine point.
This will help to see exactly how long and where the score line is placed. The cricut explore air series and cricut maker both have dual heads to hold the scoring stylus and the regular cutting blade at the same time. The eclips machine scores using its blade, and the cricut explore/maker machines can score using the cricut scoring stylus tool or the cricut scoring wheel tool.

If you are making a short scoring line, be sure to use zoom on cricut design space. You don’t have to use a maker to take advantage of the scoreline function in design space. Look at the following photos and then, let’s chat how do it step by step.
Place The Score Line Where You Want To Make The Fold.
You should always fold into the score line. Best part is, because its just tape, you don't have to do anything to your machine. However, the scoring wheel looks very similar to a blade.
Open Clamp A And Insert The Scoring Stylus With Its Metal Tip Down (The Arrow On The Accessory Also Points Down, Giving You A Direction Hint).
Cricut’s brilliant engineers have come up with an elegant solution to help with this problem—the double scoring wheel. This isn't the prettiest looking fix but it worked for me! The eclips machine scores using its blade, and the cricut explore/maker machines can score using the cricut scoring stylus tool or the cricut scoring wheel tool.
While Still Pressing Remove The Tip.
If you want to fold pretty sides together, place the material pretty side up on the mat. Select the dotted lines and main template. You can drop a stylus tool in the 2nd tool holder on your machine and (the same way you would on the cricut explore air 2) and use it to score any lines you want.
Now You Can Cut And Score Your Card.
By default the design will open with everything grouped together. The following tools can only be used with the cricut joy machine due to its small build. Then insert it into the joy down to the lip on the adapter.
