It is our job as educators to not only prepare students for their future careers, but to also excite them as they engage with the skills that can shape their future. In an integrated learning environment, it increasingly common to be teaching students how they may bring their designs and ideas to life using prototyping machinery, and the Carvera desktop CNC is the perfect tool for makerspaces of all sizes.
The Carvera brings the conversations of subtractive manufacturing into the classroom, a leading industry production technique used to create the products we buy and use everyday. The Carvera is designed to not only be the most versatile desktop CNC with built-in features that mimic industry production techniques, but to also be a machine that is easy to use, reliable, and safe.
The Carvera can automatically calibrate and adjust designs based on the material being used, and has an automatic tool changer to seamlessly switch between bits to make precise machining effortless. And with built-in dust collection and air-assist nozzle, we can machine our designs cleanly and safely too.
Through the optional 4th Axis module, the Carvera can be equipped to bring student designs to life without limitation. From any angle and using almost any material, students can create prototype solutions that not only look like the real products we use and buy, but are made using the same materials too.
By using the Laser Engraving module, students can etch and engrave using their 2D designs, or combine laser engraving with subtractive manufacturing to fabricate truly unique innovations. The Carvera also can be connected to an air compressor and covered with a protectant tint to make laser engraving safe for the classroom.
Students can create designs using the CAD programs you're already using in your classroom, then quickly import and prepare them for manufacturing in almost any CAM. Makera's own CAM software is designed specifically for the Carvera which makes setting up the mill, tool changer, and laser engraver easy to implement and manage in the classroom.
Because of its smart features and intuitive CAM software, the Carvera is the best choice for users who may be new to CNC machines, or even for experienced users who want to make professional quality designs with greater ease.
Almost any design can be prepared for manufacturing with the Carvera. Whether you're working at the middle school, high school, or university level, the Carvera has been designed to cater to the unique needs of a wide range of students while also providing educators with the resources they need to foster success while creating meaningful learning experiences for all of their students.
Makera is dedicated to supporting our teachers as they not only get acclimated with the Carvera, but also as they work to incorporate the topics of computer aided design and manufacturing into their classroom. Take a moment to visit the official Makera YouTube Channel and Wiki Page to see some of our supporting resources and tutorials, as well as projects that you can implement right away in your own instructional space!Questions?
