We’re excited to announce a new Easel feature: Workpieces.
This feature allows you to plan out a multi-part project within one Easel file, instead of having the project workpieces split into multiple Easel projects. Each workpiece gets its own canvas for design elements, as well as its own bit, material, and cut settings.
You can copy/paste across workpieces, duplicate workpieces, and rename and delete workpieces.
Workpieces are useful for a number of different use cases, including inlays or projects where you want to cut the same design out of different types of material:
We’ve been testing this feature internally and with a small group of early access testers for a couple months, and we think you’re really going to enjoy it. Here are a couple of nice quotes I like about this feature from our early testing group:
I am using it on almost every project. Sometimes it is just to have multiple pages to fit all the parts to a similar work area (my vacuum table in particular) or to put scribe lines with one bit on one page and cut-outs on another. It’s one of the best additions we have had.
It’s a major improvement that people are going to love!
I’d like to thank all the early testers for their help and feedback.
