You can think of the CarveWright machine as a desktop publishing system for wood and other soft materials. The easy to use CarveWright Designer software lets the user create original designs without having to use complicated CAD software. Once the design is ready, the information is uploaded to the machine via a memory card and carved. The machine can carve, cut, surface, edge route, and miter a workpiece with a variety of bits and techniques. The machine requires no prior knowledge of machine tools or the programming language G-Code. It does all of the setup with its sensors and prompts the user for information when required.
