Free Shipping on Non-Machine Orders

Today we’re introducing free shipping on non-machine orders of $100 or more. It’s a bit of an experiment, one we plan to learn a lot from on our way to designing a future Inventables membership program.


It’s also a big part of continuing to build Inventables as a community of encouragement, something that’s really important to us. From our recent Easel Live classes to this week’s Fidget Spinner Design Challenge launch, we’re hoping to inspire you to design, carve and share amazing ideas with each other. As we do, we also want to get rid of things that might stand in the way of that. Like shipping.


As we launch this free shipping program, here’s what’s important to know…
It’s only for our non-machine items. That means everything excluding X-Carve, Carvey, X-Controller, vacuums, and machine upgrade kits. All bits and materials are eligible.


With big apologies to our friends in Hawaii, Alaska, and international points near and far, it only applies to deliveries to the continental US.


At this point, we don’t know when this offer will end. We’re learning as we go, and you’ll be the first to know as things change.


For more information, head on over to this FAQ we created and will continue to update. If you have a question and don’t see the answer there, send it to help@inventables.com, and we’ll get right back to you.

As for our future membership program, we’re really hoping to hear any and all of your ideas in the below comments section. What are some of the benefits you’d like to see us include?

New Easel Features: Search, snapshots and more!

February has been a big month for Easel improvements! There are three big features I’d like to share. All three should make Easel an easier and more powerful aid to making.



Project snapshots

It has always been difficult to find an old project. Even if you are careful and organized with names, it is not always easy to remember what project you are looking for. Now Easel will take a snapshot of what your project looks like and display it in the project drawer. You can now easily scan through your projects to find the one you are looking for visually. Snapshots are created whenever your project is saved, so the picture will always be in sync with your project.




Project search

In addition to using pictures to find the right project, we’ve also introduced an instant search to help you find a specific project by name. Simply type a bit of the project name and the list will automatically update.












Easel Live Featured Apps

Apps in Easel are a combination of ideas about what to make and tools for how to make. We have made some major improvements to the way apps are organized and displayed. There are now categories, featured apps created by the Easel team, larger photos, and new animations to let you see how the apps work just by hovering your mouse over the image. Featured apps also all have links to Easel Live events explaining in-depth how to use them to create awesome projects.





What's next? Find out early on the forum.

These changes and many others are posted to the Inventables Community Forum where we give first looks at new features, announce early-access features and gather feedback. It is also a great place to find help and connect with other carvers. Check it out!
