X-Carve CNC Carving Machine

X-Carve is an open source milling machine from Inventables that powers a De-Walt 611 router with a ¼ inch collet in three orthogonal directions. It can mill a volume of 700mm x 700mm x 65mm. It is rigid enough to carve 3D profiles in plastic, wood and potentially aluminium. Stepper motors driving the router are powered by an Arduino micro-controller with a Grbl shield.

The X-Carve has a strong maker community that provide regular suggestions for upgrades. This machine has a laser upgrade consisting of a 2.8W laser with a constant current driver. This allows the X-carve to engrave wood, leather, acrylics, and many other materials. It can cut thin and non-dense woods like Balsa, Basswood, thin plywood, foam and plastics.
