First look at desktop carving machine

Recently I spent an afternoon getting to know Carvey (from Inventables) with help from Brian Bartel.

You can watch our adventure below:

It’s easy to see Carvey stealing the show but the other hidden gem from Inventables is Easel. This is the software that helps you get your designs ready for carving.

Easel is web-based and free to use. You can create designs from scratch or import your own images. The software is intuitive and is worth checking out even if you don’t have a Carvey.

The whole experience was a refreshing change from 3D printing. I look forward to seeing what students can create with tools like these.

One thought on “First look at desktop carving machine

  1. Spent two years researching these types of products before purchasing the 1013. Just finished my first project, a test sign with some graphics and I am impressed with this machine. Worked the first time out of the box by just following the instructions (which could be improved)and the machine went to work carving out the sign.
