The Carvewright machine ties in with its software. The software is easy to use to do simple projects, but there are depths within depths in that software. To create complex patterns or projects, you will need to take time to learn to use the software. Carvewright maintains a very active and engaged forum, one that you will go to probably with every project and problem. There is a learning curve to using this system and much of the learning needed will come from other users. (Thanks, Bud, btw) There's tutorials online. Do not make the mistake of thinking that you'll muddle through and figure out the software as you go. Its too complex for that. But it is cool and you can do some pretty amazing things with it; you just need to learn how.
Upon purchase, I had to wait several weeks for the machine to arrive. The company seems to sometimes be backordered as the machines themselves are heavy, bulky and expensive. Once it arrived, it was very simple to put together and I was (and am still) pleased that it came well tuned right out of the box.
The first project that I did was a simple one, a variation on one of the tutorials on the system. It came out beautifully, though it was simple. It was a pattern, with words in a single plane that was carved from the surface of a board. I was ready for more complexity.
Unfortunately, I had a tough time. The next 6 carves didn't work out for a lot of reasons. Almost all of those reasons were operator error.Read more ›
You could put a board up to 14.5" into it, do any length as long as you had supports, the rollers and belts which feed the board in and out. It has a servo motor which is much better for speed and accuracy than the stepper motor you will find on other CNC machines. The carving bit looks like a pencil shape and travels back and forth to achieve the detail. The cutting bit follows the contour of a path.
The software uses raster images or jpg and png files specifically. You can capture an image off of the internet or any thing on the screen to the clipboard. Bring it into Designer via the Import Image Dialog box, hitting Next to get the 3D preview, and then you can set the depth. The designer software which comes with it is where you can set up your board size. You can easily turn and spin the board while setting up your job. You can easily find any pattern that you have imported in the pattern list, and simply clicking it, then click on the board to place it, after which you can move and resize it. You can invert a pattern and also turn the board over to utilize a two sided carve. The standard software uses height map raster images.Read more ›
