Is there an expander kit to turn my X-Carve into an X-Carve Pro?

Currently there is no offering for an expander kit to turn your X-Carve into an X-Carve Pro.

  • The X-Carve and X-Carve Pro are two very different CNC machines. The X-Carve uses a router and belt drive system, while the X-Carve Pro has an included spindle and uses ball screws and linear guides. While it’s not possible to expand your X-Carve to an X-Carve Pro, many customers are looking forward to running both machines out of their shop.

What is the maximum width sheet material that can pass through the X-Carve?

The maximum width that sheets can pass through is 37 inches.

Can I carve metal with it?

You can carve aluminum and other non-ferrous metals.

  • For optimal results in aluminum and non-ferrous metals, lubrication and tools specifically designed for metals are required.

What materials can I carve?

The Inventables X-Carve can carve plywood, hardwoods, softwoods, and MDF. It can carve plastics, including HDPE, Delrin®️, polycarbonate, acrylic, and Corian®️.* It can also carve Non-ferrous metals, including aluminum, brass, copper, etc.

  • For optimal results in aluminum and non-ferrous metals, lubrication and tools specifically designed for metals are required. *In order to achieve optimal results when carving, proper cut settings and chip removal are required. Inventables continues to test and refine cut settings for materials and will provide updated recommendations in Easel when available.

Can I attach a laser?

Inventables does not have any plans down the line to support anything besides a router head for X-Carve.

  • There are some people making these modifications to their machines but they are considered unsupported upgrades, are not covered by and will likely void the 6-month limited warranty that comes with X-Carve.


Can I import files from another program?

Yes, as long as your program can export standard G-Code, SVG, or DXF files, the X-Carve will work with other CAD/CAM software options.

Can I run Easel Pro on multiple machines?

Yes. With the Machine Profiles feature, you can move your computer from machine to machine.

Do I need Internet access to use Easel and X-Carve?

Internet access is required to load and save Easel projects. Internet access is not required to work with a project once loaded or to connect to your machine and carve a project. If you do make changes to an Easel project while working offline, you will need to re-connect to the Internet to save them before closing the tab/window that the project is running in.

Will I be automatically billed after my 3-year upgrade to Easel Pro runs out?

No, you will not be automatically billed. Instead, we will send you a reminder so you can update your payment method and avoid disrupting your subscription.

What happens to my Easel Pro account after 3 years?

When your 3 years of Easel Pro runs out, you will need to have a valid payment method stored on your account for it to renew. Otherwise, your account will become an Easel Free account. We do not delete or destroy any projects, so if that happens (accidentally or on purpose), you'll just need to enter a valid payment method to be restored to an Easel Pro experience again.

Can I test out Easel Pro before purchasing the X-Carve?

A free 30-day trial of Easel Pro can be accessed via sign up here.

What computer do I need to run the software and machine?

You’ll need a computer with the following specs: USB port, Internet connection, and Windows 7 or higher, Mac OS X 10.10 or higher, or Ubuntu Linux 18.04 or higher.
