This tiny desktop CNC machine with lathe and laser modules puts powerful fabricating tools right at your fingertips

No more getting your parts fabricated from another country. The Carvera gives you the ability to make your own prototypes, mockups, designs, PCBs, and even molds, right on your tabletop.

Roughly the same size as a microwave oven, the Carvera is easily one of the smallest tabletop fab-labs you can own. Equipped with powerful modules, auto self-leveling features, auto tool changing abilities, and an interface that’s easy enough for any basic designer/engineer to use, the Carvera brings factory-grade prototyping and fabrication into the household.

For a respectable $3,099, the Carvera adds 3-axis CNC machining abilities to your arsenal, with an optional laser-cutting module and even a 4-axis CNC upgrade. While that price tag’s higher than your average tabletop 3D printer, the Carvera gives you the ability to work with wood, plastic, composite (carbon fiber), metal, and even custom-design and produce your own PCBs, adding a valuable set of tools to your arsenal.

The Carvera ships fully assembled, with a work-area measuring 14.2″ x 9.4″ x 5.5″. It self-levels at the start of every job, and will automatically select the right tool for the right job on its own, calibrating along the way for an accurate end result. The tools at Carvera’s disposal include multiple drill bits from broad to narrow, a probe tool, and even a 2.5W laser etching/cutting module. The Carvera automatically switches between bits and modules based on the job, and a rather clever dust-collection pipe located alongside the spindle sucks in wood chips, plastic dust, and metal shavings/burrs as the machine does its job, keeping the work area clean throughout. The enclosed design helps keep any other fragments or dust particles from littering your area, and cuts out sound too, making Carvera perfect for having within your home or on your workspace.

Cavera features auto tool changing and auto probing.

Whether you are doing auto-leveling, cutting, cleaning, drilling, or carving, Cavera can automatically change the right tool for the right job seamlessly and save you time.

Cavera has a built-in dust collection system so projects start clean and finish clean.

With the integrated 2.5W diode laser module, you can engrave a wide variety of materials including paper, wood, plastic, leather, fabric, PCB stock etc.

While the Carvera’s built to be a self-operational 3-axis CNC machine, it comes with a modular 4th axis attachment that lets you add an extra dimension to your projects. The 4-axis module attaches a lathe to your Carvera, allowing you to make more detailed designs with undercuts (something that isn’t possible with traditional 3-axis relief jobs). The 4th axis module is optional and costs an extra $300, although it’s best suited for people who build intricate 3D models with complex details.

The entire gadget comes with a robust build, featuring a metal-alloy frame, a stainless-steel shell, and durable ABS+PC components. All axes of Carvera use high-quality linear rails and ball screws too, eliminating vibrations to ensure the Carvera works with precision. The CNC machine comes usable right out of the box. A fold-out holder lets you mount your Android/iOS smartphone on the side of the Carvera and control it + check the job status using Carvera’s app. The Carvera supports connections via USB and even WiFi, so you can even control the CNC machine using a MacOS/Windows/Linux computer. Carvera works with most common 2D and 3D software too, accepting 3D models from Fusion360, SolidWorks, AutoCAD, and VCarve Pro, as well as vectors from Vectric Aspire and Adobe Illustrator (for PCBs and laser-etching and laser-cutting jobs).

Carvera lets you make professional PCBs for your electronics.

For those building cutting-edge drones from carbon fiber or metal parts for their robots, there is no substitute for CNC milling.

Carvera supports a wide range of natural materials, making it the perfect choice for artists and designers who make art and custom products.

The Carvera comes with a retail price tag of $5,000, although they’re running an early bird discount on Kickstarter. For the 38% discounted price of $3,099, you get the fully assembled and equipped Carvera with the bits and the laser module, a toolkit with drivers, brackets, and clamps, a kit of accessories featuring power cables, dust filters, safety goggles, and laser goggles. For experimentation, Carvera even gives you a sample set of materials to practice your skills and test your machine on including 2 waste boards, 4 PCBs, 2 acrylic plates, and even 2 aluminum plates. While not included in the sample set, Carvera even works with other plastics, set epoxies, a variety of woods, and even carbon fiber. The laser module works well on paper, wood, plastic, leather, and even certain fabrics. The Carvera desktop CNC machine comes with a 1-year warranty, and you can buy upgrades, mods, and spare parts from its online store.
