Version C System is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Hobby CNC I have been a CarveWright user since 2007 with 4 machines. This is a very versatile machine with a small learning curve. CarveWright has a Forum where I and others show the Machine Capability and help answer questions about operations and errors. On the LHR page, the Maker of the machine, they have a link to Tips and Tricks. They were written by users like me and LHR. With this machine you need to understand terms like "The 7 inch Rule of Wood" and Scaling. The Answers can be found in the Tips and Tricks or on the Forum. Refrain from buying pattern art disks on eBay as what is being sold is FREE Patterns that were and still are being posted by users for FREE. So please visit the Forum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing CNC for the price! This is a great CNC for the hobbyist or home woodworker. Although many I know use it for a business. There is a learning curve and regular maintenance involved. You can make some amazing woodworking projects and although earlier versions suffered from breakdowns the current version is very reliable. I highly recommend this machine to anyone who is interested in an affordable CNC machine. The manufacturer has a great forum where users learn from each other and help each other as well as show off their projects. I have attached a photo of some of the things I have made with the machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice entry level machine I have extensive experience using this machine - given the upgrades that have been made since it was first introduced, I would give it 4 of 5 stars. It is important to understand that this is NOT a production machine but rather a great hobby machine. The software is very easy to learn and you can easily be cutting your first project in a matter of hours. Board placement, cutter positioning, homing, and cutting speed are all automated making setup a breeze. The compact design seriously limits two of the three project dimensions, but the length of the work piece is virtually limitless - ingenious. This machine does have some serious downsides. There is no practical dust collection. While there are some cheesy aftermarket dust collectors available, they require removing part of the safety cover. Odd shaped work pieces are difficult to deal with - a custom “sled” must be built to hold the work piece. All of the software is proprietary and not necessarily transferrable. I would certainly recommend this machine to anyone who understands its limitations. I would not recommend it to someone expecting to start a full time CNC business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picture to Wood Carving The CarveWright system is an amazing CNC machine. The designer software is like working with windows and MicroSoft Office. I quickly learned how to import photos and images into the CarveWright designer software and over the past 2 year have carved hundreds of wood portrait carvings and logo style carvings. I love the result I'm getting the CarveWright System. They have my approval. Happy Carving! Here's a few family pictures created with the CarveWright machine and software.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money well spent. I've had and enjoyed my version A model for years and the version C has many improvements added- stiffened frame, better tool chuck, more reliable belting, etc, NOT that there was anything wrong with the older setups, they're just better now! A really impressive feature is the extent of versatility in the software- there are far too many possible settings to list here or in an ad, but I think they still offer a 'Trial Version' so you can try it out and see for yourself! Scaling size, detail levels, feathering angles, centering tools, plotting vectors, etc are all easier than they sound. Comes with a huge library of patterns so you can start right off the bat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meets or exceeds my expectations. The Carve Wright Version C meets or exceeds all my expectations. It is complete and ready to carve wood. Following closely the tutorials and sample projects included with the machine had me up to speed in no time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Review of Carvewright. Reprinted from my Amazon Review. I believe in balanced reviews...emphasis on useful! I've used my Carvewright for three years since I wrote the following review. I stand behind every word, three years later. Hope this helps! This is going to be a balanced review. Clearly, reading the other reviews, everyone either loves or hates the Carvewright. I will say that it is not problem free, that you (as owner) will need to learn some new tricks. But that doesn't mean it isn't worthwhile. The Carvewright machine ties in with its software. The software is easy to use to do simple projects, but there are depths within depths in that software. To create complex patterns or projects, you will need to take time to learn to use the software. Carvewright maintains a very active and engaged forum, one that you will go to probably with every project and problem. There is a learning curve to using this system and much of the learning needed will come from other users. (Thanks, Bud, btw) There's tutorials online. Do not make the mistake of thinking that you'll muddle through and figure out the software as you go. Its too complex for that. But it is cool and you can do some pretty amazing things with it; you just need to learn how. Upon purchase, I had to wait several weeks for the machine to arrive. The company seems to sometimes be backordered as the machines themselves are heavy, bulky and expensive. Once it arrived, it was very simple to put together and I was (and am still) pleased that it came well tuned right out of the box. The first project that I did was a simple one, a variation on one of the tutorials on the system. It came out beautifully, though it was simple. It was a pattern, with words in a single plane that was carved from the surface of a board. I was ready for more complexity. Unfortunately, I had a tough time. The next 6 carves didn't work out for a lot of reasons. Almost all of those reasons were operator error. I had to learn and now that I have, I see the mistakes I made. The good news is that I don't think I made the same mistake twice. In one instance, the flexshaft that drives the bit melted but I believe that is because it was not inserted completely into the rig. Again, operator error. The projects I'm doing now are coming out beautifully. I'm using very complex patterns and am in process of carving a large gothic bed. I will post pictures when I'm done. So, if you are considering, be prepared to learn. It is NOT boring and it is cool as heck, but you may experience some level of frustration. A number of the other reviews on this board seem very frustrated. This is not an Apple product. it is not user friendly, it is a tool that can do a lot but you have to learn to use it right. Last, not least, this machine is LOUD. It makes a lot of noise (particularly if the muffler falls off the back). What's more, you cannot leave it unattended for very long. There was a case of someone on the forum that left it for a couple of hours and found that it started a fire in his shed. I have it in a back room in the basement and when its one, I can hear it three floors above. When I'm carving, I let it roll for an hour or so, go back and double check it. I also bought two smoke detectors that I keep close to the machine. Be ready for loud. But also be ready for something very cool that will let you build all those amazing projects you've been thinking about for years! As much as I love my Carvewright, I wouldn't want to relive the first couple of weeks all over. If you buy it (or have bought it), prepare for a couple of rough weeks followed by use of a very powerful tool.
