We’ve gone far beyond the machine to craft a complete X-Carve experience.
Instructions designed not just to build it, but to learn how the X-Carve works. Material to get you started for your very first carve. And a community of makers at every skill level to provide support and inspiration along the way.
We’re seeing new projects created by the vibrant Inventables community each and every day. Your carving journey may start with engraving, but from there the possibilities are endless.
From toys and guitars, to furniture and even quadcopters, our free Easel software makes it easy to design your own project or apply your personal touch to remake one from our growing gallery.
Paired with Easel, X-Carve lets you carve with incredible detail and complex curves in wood, plastic, metal, and more.
Our free Easel software makes 3D carving accessible to everyone.
Use Image Trace to import any image you want to carve. Draw from scratch using the Pen Tool. Easel’s also compatible with leading design software packages, including Fusion 360, MeshCAM, and Vectric’s V-Carve.
The X-Controller is included with X-Carve. It features four powerful, four-amp stepper drivers and a heat sink to support long, accurate and precise carves. Encased to keep dust out. Ports to keep wires in. And an emergency stop button in case you need it.
Additionally, carve more consistently with a new wider gantry, featuring thicker walls and less ribs. And benefit from the combination of locking hardware, molded belt clips, and permanent pulleys.
