This class will cover the basics of how to use Inventables Easel software to prepare a design for carving. We'll go over the tools available for drawing shapes, how to import a svg file, and what speeds and feed rates are best for different materials. We'll also talk about different kinds of bits that are available and their best uses.
Most importantly we'll get hands on experience with the XCarve machine itself and cover best practices for clamping material to the wasteboard, how to change bits in the router, and safe machine operation.
