BREAKING NEWS: Easel by Inventables: cloud based app for design and fabrication with real materials #cnc #3D
BREAKING NEWS: Just launched at SXSW, Easel is a groundbreaking tool, a cloud based app for design and fabrication with real materials. Easel by Inventables:
Easel is a cloud based app for design and fabrication. It is a fun way to design and make projects from real materials. It’s free. It’s simple. It works in your browser. Check it out online at Easel.com
An innovative 2D / 3D editor allows you to design in 2D and preview your design in real time in 3D. Importing from other vector design software is simple with SVG support.
You can even see how given bit sizes and materials will effect the precision of your design.
Expert quality results every time
Material settings built in
Get it right the first time and stop wasting material. Get professionally calibrated settings for your machine for a wide range of materials, including a dozen varieties of wood, carbon fiber, acrylic and HDPE.
Take the guess work out of using a new material.
Simple machine control
Connect directly to your machine from inside the Easel website.
Control your machine manually and send your job and monitor its progress. Why drag your files from application to application when you can just use Easel!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
