Now available from store.redstack.com.au, Carvey is a new, remarkably easy to use, tabletop 3D carving machine for turning ideas into real objects.
“Safe, clean, and quiet, Carvey is the ideal digital manufacturing tool for a traditional classroom or maker space. Students as young as elementary age can create and carve custom designs and build projects with endless possibilities.” Casey Shea, Maker Education Teacher, Sebastpool, CA
Carvey is clean. A fully enclosed frame ensures any mess is contained on the inside.
Carvey is quiet. The enclosure has been designed for noise reduction with an incredibly quiet spindle.
Carvey is connected. Carvey comes with Easel software for simple connectivity with Carvey. Clicking the 'Carve' button starts the carving process—it's so simple it's almost magic.
Carvey is easy. Automatic calibration, material probing, and Easel's built-in materials settings make Carvey quick and easy to use.
Easy as 1, 2, 3. Making can be complicated with other methods and technologies, but not with Carvey. More than just a machine, Carvey provides a complete experience. Work your way from idea to finished product easier and faster than you thought would be possible.
Step 1: Create your design
Carvey comes with Easel, a free web software application that interacts seamlessly with Carvey. Design in 2D and view in 3D instantly. Create a design from an idea or concept, import an existing design or get started quickly from a library of existing projects from he Carvey and Easel online community.
Easel runs in your browser and connects to Carvey via USB. If you already have a preferred carving software, Carvey will connect with that also.
Step 2: Choose your material
Carvey works with a broad range of real materials - not only wood, plastic, and soft metals, but also foam, linoleum, and even molding wax. Adjusting the technical settings for your selected material is easy. Easel's material library is pre-programmed with all the details required to get it right on the first carve.
Redstack can supply all the materials you could possibly carve, in precut sizes designed to fit perfectly in your Carvey machine.
Step 3: Click carve
Connect Carvey to your computer via USB, click ”Carve”, and away you go. Stand back and enjoy the show as Carvey cuts or engraves your design. Carvey enables you to create your own real objects to a professional standard.
