Congratulations! You’ve just taken one of your first steps into the world of 3D Carving! This guide will take you through the steps of building your very own X-Carve 3D Carver! We’ve tried to make it as easy as possible to get you from unpacking your parts to carving. We’ve laid out the instructions starting from the bottom of the machine to the top, and we will cover everything from machine assembly to computer setup.
Building your X-Carve is the first step in becoming a CNC expert. While you are building your machine you will learn about how and why the machine works, and these discoveries will create a strong foundation for you to build on as your hobby or business grows.
This is a do-it-yourself 3D carving kit: the more time and attention you put into assembling your machine, the better it will perform. If you run into any trouble during assembly or carving you can find further help from the wonderful community on the forum, our support center which is continuously growing with articles and tutorials, and as always you can reach our customer success team through our support center or by phone at 312 775 7009.
