Just want to get carving?

  • - DeWalt D26200
  • - DeWalt D26200 Spindle Mount
  • - Carving Bit Super Pack

Note: The extra waste-board provided do not include the silkscreen and are sourced locally since it is not cost effective to have them shipped from Inventables in the US due to their weight and size. The only differences are that the local version has a thickness of ​18mm instead of 19.05mm (3/4") and does not include the silkscreen.

Precise 3D carving technology

Paired with Easel, X-Carve lets you carve with incredible detail and complex curves in wood, plastic, metal, and more.

The easiest software, free.

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.

More reliable than ever.

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.
