intellicarveSo what’s the big deal about CNC carving, anyway? In the early days of the technology, it was big, heavy and expensive stuff – if you wanted precision and reliability.

But today things are very different thanks to the Oliver Intellicarve, which is a table top sized CNC carver that’s quite affordable, surprisingly simple to use, and well built. You should see it in person to appreciate what the machine can do, so we’re going to bring in a few units and set up a demonstration.

Come on down and see for yourself.

What’s it used for?

You’d be surprised. Let’s put aside the debate of where’s the line between craftsmanship and manufacturing. You can take any photograph and turn it into a carving for a wall hanging, make your own carved moldings, carve decorative box lids, engrave logos and symbols, add unique embellishments to cabinet doors and furniture parts, create complex curved (convex & concave) project parts, or perhaps shape components like barstool seats and guitar necks. That’s what I can think of at this moment, so you know there’s gotta be more.

 

How does it work?

Here’s the quick version.

  1. You start with a picture. Something as simple as snapshot from your phone works.
  2. Run it through the iPicture software that comes with the Oliver Intellicarve
  3. Save it to a thumb drive
  4. Plug it into the Intellicarve
  5. Drop in your workpiece, and press play.

Kick back and watch it go.
