X-CarveThe 1000mm X-Carve has a cutting area of 750mm wide x 750mm deep x 65mm tall (~29.5 x 29.5 x 2.5"). It can through cut material up to ~32mm/1-1/4" thick and engrave material up to ~57mm/2-1/4" thick. The JCPL X-Carve Quick Start (2MB PDF) provides a step by step guide for setting up and routing a project (note: we don't have a z-probe).

Easel is the free online 2.5D CAM software for the X-Carve. A good place to start is the Learn Easel in 4 Minutes video. Using V-bits (V-Carving) to achieve 3D effects requires Easel Pro which can be used 4 days per month for free (paid monthly and day passes also available). True 3D carving using Fusion 360 (free for startups and hobbyists) appears to be somewhat involved.
