The 3D Carving Machine
for the maker in all of us.

Designed for the classroom or any clean maker space, 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.”

Easy as 1, 2, 3.

Making can be complicated. Not with Carvey. More than just a machine, we've created an experience to revolutionize your STEM/STEAM curriculum. Confidently guide your students from idea to finished product easier and faster than you thought possible.

Step 1

Create your design.

Design software can be complicated. That's why we've built Easel®, a free web application that works seamlessly with Carvey. Design in 2D and view in 3D, instantly. Create a design from scratch, import an existing design you've made, or get started quickly from our library of projects that other Easel users have created and shared.

Easel runs in the browser and connects to Carvey with USB. If you already have a favorite carving software, Carvey will work with that too.

Step 2

Choose your material.

Carvey works with a wide variety of real materials - not only wood, plastic, and soft metals, but also linoleum, foam, and molding wax. Don't know the technical settings for your material of choice? No worries, Easel's material library is programmed with all the details, so you get it right the first time.

The Inventables store carries all the materials you could possibly carve, in precut sizes designed to fit perfectly in Carvey.

Step 3

Click carve.

Connect Carvey to your computer via USB, click ”Carve”, and Carvey does the rest. Sit back and watch as Carvey cuts or engraves your design. Carvey enables you to create real objects, with the same level of quality as what you see on store shelves.
