This test cut doily is from Monica's Creative Room and is cut at a 2.5 inches. Her patterns are extremely intricate and detailed and challenge any cutter. All things considered, this cut out beautifully. I accidentally tore some of it and the center came out better than I expected. It took about 15 minutes to cut and was used on the light card stock setting. I used JoAnn's paper. The circles are true circles and even the small circles that are the size of a pin prick worked.
I am really impressed with Provo Craft's Explore machine after this test cut. I won't be cutting anything this intricate all the time, but for me this is acceptable given the parameters. Loving this machine so far.
