We are excited to announce that we have added a new piece of equipment to the Makers Lab! Carvey is a 3D carving machine, also known as a CNC router, that uses a subtractive process to create 3D sculptures and anything you can imagine. Below are two examples of projects created on the Carvey. Some mediums that Carvey can work with are: Machinable Circuit Board Blanks Delrin (thermoplastic) Expanded PVC (foam sheet) Machinable Foam Machinable … Read more
