Whether you’re new to 3D carving, or just looking to fine-tune your skills, it’s always helpful to have material around for practice. This pack contains 5 sheets for testing out new techniques and designs. Each material has default settings in Easel, making it easy to try something new.
For specific projects to try with these materials, check out our Easel classes. Each class has a detailed video to walk you through the process.
For general tutorials and tips on using Easel, please visit our Support Center. You can learn about designing with the pen tool, tracing an image, using tabs and more. These practice sheets are perfect for mastering your carving skills.
A versatile and durable product, PVC Foam Sheet or expanded PVC is a durable, closed cell, free foam PVC sheet material that combines a rigid exterior and matte finish. PVC Foam Sheet is often referred to by its trade names, including but not limited to, Sintra®, Komatex® and Celtec®. Expanded PVC‘s unique characteristics make it ideal for POP displays, signage, kiosks, dimensional lettering and display boards.
MDF is valued for its defect-free composition and highly uniform density that allow it to cut, rout, shape and drill cleanly, holding intricate detail with a minimum of waste and tool wear. Panel for panel, it's hard to beat for material efficiency, machining performance and productivity
Plywood is a sheet material manufactured from thin layers or "plies" of wood veneer that are glued together with adjacent layers having their wood grain rotated up to 90 degrees to one another.
General purpose ABS Plastic is a rigid thermoplastic with a combination of properties that make it ideal for the widest range of applications.
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.
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.
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.
