Once More Into the Breach

We are pleased to say that we completed assembly of the X-Carve. We did a quick test carve and after coloring the inside of the letters with some paint it came out pretty well. The X-carve can do this sort of engraving and so much more. It can also operate on a range of materials including wood, MDF, various plastics, and aluminum. Make sure to stop by one of our monthly Public Hours events if you want to see it in action. Also, if you have a great idea on how we can put the tool to use, send us an e-mail!

X-Carve Assembly Party

With all the parts to our new 1000mm X-Carve CNC Engraver/Cutter having finally arrived we set to work assembling the beast. While we had a good time, even after 3 hours we still have more work to do. We should be running our first test projects next Saturday. If you are interested in using the X-Carve please send an e-mail to info@capecodmakers.org or better yet, stop by our Public Hours held on the 4th Saturday of every month from 6pm-8pm! To see what the X-carve can do check out Inventables’ Project Gallery.
