All kits require Assembly.
This X-Carve package—designed specifically for FIRST teams—includes everything you need to manufacture robot parts out of aluminum plate, aluminum tube, and polycarbonate.
Custom components can be made on-site without outsourcing complex designs to third-party milling manufacturers. With an X-Carve, FRC teams can carve high-fidelity prototypes of CAD drawings or sketches out of MDF and plywood. Once perfected, carve your robot’s parts out of aluminum for competition.
Easel, our free web-based CAD/CAM software, integrates into your FIRST team’s existing workflow. Easel is compatible with g-code files used by your favorite CAD/CAM packages (Inventor, Fusion 360, and Solidworks). Sending CAD designs directly to the machine allows students to own the entire build process, from design to final production, and gain first-hand 3D manufacturing experience.
Additionally, FRC teams can create awesome giveaways, team awards, and creative marketing materials using X-Carve and Easel. Whether your team makes custom trinkets for competition giveaways or honors a sponsor with a recognition plaque, Easel can be used by students of all skill levels.
*For orders without an X-Carve, you must purchase a minimum of $100 in bits or materials to qualify for free shipping. Carvey and vacuums do not qualify for free shipping. Learn more.
Powered by X-Controller, a custom controller with four-amp stepper drivers and a heat sink for long, precise carves
A high-quality aluminum frame stands up to your FRC team’s build needs.
Additional X-Carve accessories (like our Dust Control System) makes your digital manufacturing experience easier and cleaner.
X-Carve and Easel integrate into your existing CAD design and manufacturing process. Detailed assembly instructions help you get your X-Carve up-and-running quickly.
