Today at MakerCon, Inventables’ Zach Kaplan announced that Easel, his company’s web-based CNC software, is moving out of beta testing and into full release for all users, for free.
Launched to a very limited number of users at SXSW in March, Easel works with Inventables’ Shapeoko CNC machine, allowing for fast design in a variety of materials and one-button simplicity. The company has slowly added additional testers while making sure that the software continued to perform safely and securely.
They’ve also been adding new functionalities, including an “open-in-Easel” button on the Inventables project pages, and a mirroring capability for creating inverse designs. Kaplan describes some of these latest features added to Easel, and shows off their latest rubber stamp project capability.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ROmjyT3I6w]
