Product Details

Vectric’s VCarve Desktop is a powerful but affordable CAD/CAM software for use with 3D carving machines like the X-Carve. While it doesn’t have all the functionality of VCarve Pro, it offers some of the same features at an appealing price point.

Please note that the work area in VCarve Desktop is 24″ × 24″. That does not cover the full bed size of the 1000mm X-Carve. It still works with this size machine if you are ok with the size limit. This software is NOT Mac-compatible.

Note: This software is a physical DVD disc. There is no download option available at the time of purchase. Once you register the license, the software can be dowloaded from the Vectric website.
