Hi am newer than new using X Carve and Easel Pro. I ordered my X-Carve plus but it won’t get here till July. Since I don’t know anything about either, I was looking for advice as to what I can do to prepare myself so that I will be ready when my machine arrives.

Is there a way to study or practice on Easel Pro? After reading several other posts, it sounds like it’s more than plug and play. Can anyone direct me to a site that could help me get ready to get ready?

Did I get in over my head? Will I be able to use these programs, or will I need to take cad programming courses?

If you are wanting to use easel try this link. They have a lot hands on stuff and walk thru stuff here.


Depends on what you want to do. I new nothing about CNC when I purchased mine 3 years ago. Started watching a lot of you tube videos. Phil has Paw Paws workshop. His video will become your best friend. Easel is a one stop shop if you stumble you can share your project a lot of us here like to help out. In a few years you may graduate to the other software’s depending on what you want to do. Look up my thread “Steve’s Projects” Everything on there was done in Easel.

Thanks Steve. I just keep hearing these technical terms that people are sharing on their posts, and makes me wonder if I need to know all about this before I get started.
