Differences between Easel and Pro

Do I have to get a subscription to Pro to use two stage carving, detailed preview, and multiple toolpath generation? Or are these just Easel upgrades, with Pro adding V carving functionality?

Is there a list of the differences between the two versions?

Yes

Thanks Robert!

From what I have seen so far,

if your carve button has the word pro before carve then it is using the pro features and will count towards your 4 free carves for the month.

if your carve button just says carve it is the same as always and you do not have any pro features in your carve and it will not count towards your 4 free carves.

I used to run a print shop. We had our customers sign a final proof sheet. All changes were final at that point. Saved our butt more than a few times.

Two stage carving, detailed preview, and multiple toolpath generation are all part of Easel.

These are not actually pro features Zach, these are actually just improvements to their existing free software. Which is great, but when you think of it these should have definately been apart of the pro.

Correct these are not part of Easel Pro. Feed Rate Override is also not part of Easel Pro it is in Easel.

We are working on improving both Easel and Easel Pro.

Glad we could help.

Feed rate override is a feature of grbl 1.1f

If you want to use that feature you would need to upgrade the firmware on your X-carve and update your G-code sender to one that supports the 1.1f changes.

So…I literally spend 2 hours trying to make a simple ring (with no middle) so I could combine a monogram to the middle - no luck! So…I broke down and spent the money (which I really didn’'t have to spend) to upgrade to PRO…well…I don’t see ANY DIFFERENCE. And I STILL cannot make my ring to put a monogram in…Probably going to ask for my money back!

All Easel users are granted 4 free days/month of Pro-time :slight_smile:
