    How to use the customizer?


    Now that you must be ready to get your New Customizer, we made a super helpful guide you can always check when you need to know something.


    Let’s get started!


    Now that there’s nothing left outside -more like inside
    It’s time to choose the bit!

    We made a graphic so you can choose wisely the perfect bit for the material or surface to engrave.

    First, you need to know What’s in the box?

    The Customizer comes with:


    • USBC charging cable
    • Hex key
    • Extra Allen grub screw and
    • 30 extra bits

    Let’s dig a little deeper.


    The 30-piece set is divided into 3 big groups:

    Cylinder:


    Perfect for cutting flat surfaces or 90˚ corners.

    Use the corner of the bit to notch out v-shaped cuts, or show off your freehand skills and use it to soften or round over sharp edges.

    Cone:

    You will get a variety of cone bits — needle, flame, taper. Their use is similar to the Cylinder.

    These bits are perfect for producing angled, concave cuts and notching v’s with a softly radiused vertex.

    The “pencil-tip” bit is ideal for careful detail work and carving smaller, hard-to-reach areas. Also, make small holes, work with contours, and more.

    You’ll find a wide array of diameters and variations in the set.

    Ball nose:

    With bits like the cylinder with ball nose, spherical, and others

    You can use the flat sides to quickly round over an edge, the rounded nose to produce a fillet in a corner, hollow out a concave area, or make radius-bottom grooves.

    Ball nose bits come pretty handily for drawing.

    Those are the basic bits groups now. Let’s check the most specific ones.

    Carbide Bits: 

    Used in many different industries, they are more durable than hardened steel bits but not as as a diamond.

    These bits are used for soft materials like wood, plastics, etc. For a better result, use middle-speed or maximum, depending on the surface.

    There are 3 kinds of bits.

    Ball Nose:

    From Shape and cutting to concave perforations, these bits are a must in our toolbox when working on wooden surfaces. (Or similar materials)

    Flat:

    Useful to take out imperfections or get flat results.

    Cone and Flame:

    Perfect for producing angled, concave cuts and notching v’s with a softly radiused vertex. 

    The “pencil-tip” shape is ideal for careful detail work and carving smaller, hard-to-reach areas. You can make small holes, work with contours, and more.

    Cross-Cut bur:

    This has more cuts in the blade to create a more efficient cutting process, cutting much quicker due to less debris build-up.

    Now let’s choose a material.
    There’s a wide variety of materials you can use:

    You have already chosen the material and know what bit you should use.
    Now it’s time for protection. You’ll need:

    • Safety glasses
    • Wide space for engraving (a large table, a big to medium workshop)
    • Face Mask (especially if you’re working in glass)
    • A steady surface to hold your materials (make sure nothing slips of your hands)

    ProTip: Have your design printed or drawn beforehand, so you don’t miss anything.

    Now that you know the basics. It’s Engraving Time!

    All you need to do from now on it’s to create and enjoy(and charge your customizer from time to time)
