Preparing the Easel files

30 minutes

With the latest Easel enhancements, all of the different operations are contained in different “work pieces”.

Work piece one: contains the tool path to cut the texture on the surface of the deathstar.
Work piece two: contains the tool path to cut out some of the unfinished sections of the deathstar.
Work piece three: contains the tool path to cut out the deeper section of the unfinished deathstar and the outline.
Work piece four: contains the tool path to cut the spherical scoop on the face of the deathstar. (Using an external gcode sender is no longer required).

Hello. Which software do you use to control x-carve? Thanks.

At the time i made this trivet i used two programs: 1) Easel for the flat (2D) milling and 2) Meshcam to generate the 3D path for the dish and Universal GCode Sender to control the cnc.

Philip, I've created a new Easel file now that the program has better capabilities and attached that to the project. Let me know if it works.

I also just saw that there is a "share option" on the file menu and I selected to make the easel project public. I hope it works now.
