The X-Carve is a machine that allows home DIY enthusiasts and makers to create three-dimensional pieces using materials as varied as wood, metal and plastic. Currently, makers have to splash out a whole lot of money if they want to work with anything other than extruded plastic -- the X-Carve is looking to change that.

The X-Carve is targeted towards people who want to build machines of different sizes, with different electronics and motors to meet their needs. This machine is customized to be able to do exactly that, without requiring the user to shell out on extra parts.

What's more, the X-Carve is open source so users can play around with the size as well as other attributes.

The maker market is one of the most intriguing markets out there, with large numbers of people now looking to bring their engineering ideas to life in their home. The X-Carve seems like a smart way to crack a very niche market.
