Vectric VCarve Pro and Desktop - the easiest CNC software


  • Low cost
  • Very intuitive and easy
  • Import STL 3D models
  • Fantastic tutorials
  • Very fast to use


VCarve Pro and VCarve Desktop CAD/CAM

These two VCarve options from Vectric are our most popular CAD/CAM solutions next to Autodesk Fusion 360. The biggest difference for most users is the size limitation of 600 x 600 mm on the desktop version and the rotary machining capability in the Pro version.

Otherwise both Pro and Desktop feature the most user friendly drafting and toolpath generating option anywhere. It is very easy to learn with a fantastic library of tutorials. It is easy enough even for a non-techie beginner, yet it has features that satisfy many professional needs.
