Vectric VCarve CNC Software
A complete software solution for CNC Routing, Sign Making, Wood Carving & Engraving!
VCarve is a complete solution for 2D & 2.5D, and 3D routing. The software can import and create tool paths for a single 3D model from a non-vectric design program (STL, OBJ, SKP, 3DM etc.), or assemble multiple Vectric 3D Clip Art files (V3M) into a design. The software uses the same simple and intuitive work-flow and interface as Vectric's other programs.
VCarve includes a comprehensive set of drawing tools along with profiling, pocketing and drilling tool paths for 2D work. It also has; v-carving, prism carving, texturing and many other options for cutting 2D and 3D parts with your CNC. VCarve's combination of affordable power and simplicity makes it Vectric's most popular program!
The software comes in two variants, Desktop for hobby users with smaller CNC machines (under 25" x 25" or 635mm x 635mm) and Pro which has no size limit, supports rotary axis machining, and also includes production orientated features like nesting, tool path templates, scripting (gadgets) and job setup sheets.
