Is Routing HDPE Faster Than 3D Printing?

You bet it is! Take a look at these 1/2" thick gears made into an interactive exhibit for the Taylor Center Engineering Lab. The largest of these gears would each take hours to make on a 3D printer, but the Engineering Lab's X-Carve computer-controlled router can make them in minutes, and their edges are crisp and perfect, like a gear's should be. The X-Carve system is like many computer-controlled routers you may have seen, but is unique in that the company, Inventables, has created online design software, called Easel, specifically to bring your design to life in the X-Carve. You can upload your design, made in any 3D or 2D design program, and use Easel to send the design to the X-Carve
