YoraHome Partners With Inventables!

V-carving, advanced toolpaths and more with Easel Pro: this is the whole idea behind our partnership with Inventables.

Who is Inventables?

Inventables is the company behind X-carve routers and the famous Easel software which is used by many CNC users around the world. Easel is one of the easiest CAD/CAM software available on the market. It's a browser-based service that lets you design objects that can be produced with your own CNC carving machine.

What is the difference between Easel and Easel Pro?

Easel is free to use and gives you access to all the following features:

  • Design Tools & Detailed 3D Preview
  • Basic Design and Font Libraries
  • Image Trace, SVG, and G-Code Import and Export

  • Interactive Apps and Tools
  • Automated Easy Toolpath Generation
  • Two-Stage Carving with Feedrate Override

What are some of the key benefits of Easel Pro?

With Easel Pro, business owners:

  2. Sell products with a greater level of detail at a higher price point without increasing production costs
  3. Offer more customization options to customers by choosing from hundreds of new fonts
  4. Avoid investing in complex and expensive software
  5. Can take 2D designs and achieve 3D effects using v-carving toolpaths and v-bits
  6. Minimize production errors

Do I need a constant internet connection?

Easel or Easel Pro is a web-based application that runs off your internet browser.

We recommend the latest version of any of the following internet browsers:

  • Google Chrome
  • Safari
  • Firefox
  • Microsoft Edge

Internet access is required to load and save Easel projects. Internet access is not required to work with a project once loaded or to connect to your machine and carve a project. If you do make changes to an Easel project while working offline, you will need to re-connect to the Internet to save them before closing the tab/window that the project is running in.

Who provides the support?

Inventables provides technical support for Easel Pro software in the form of 1-on-1 support, as well as tutorial videos, FAQ, and user community.
