Vectric also offers V-Carve Desktop which ic $349, it limits cut size to 24x24 and doesn't have all the Widgets Pro has.

You can cut larger pieces than 24 x 24 by using tiling.

I think the same thing whenever I see someone talking about vCarve.

The new version of F-Engrave has support for inlays too, if you don't want to pay for a V-Carve license.

Yeah, I wish I could afford my own copy, but I'm using a good friend's laptop with a licensed copy. He runs a custom tile business and utilizes VCarve for some of his CNC work.

I don't do a whole lot with my machine and certainly not for money. I expect the majority of the programs used here that cost about as much as a Shapeoko were never paid for. Anyone who has thousands to shell out for fancy software is getting a fancier machine... Thank goodness for Fusion, allowing so many people to get into proper CAD and CAM at the hobby level without all the dirty work of getting unlicensed software.

A lot of people are doing this as a hobby, and one should never underestimate what people are willing to spend on hobbies.

That said, software piracy will not be tolerated here, nor will baseless, unfounded accusations of it. Please retract your claim or provide evidence which an admin/moderator can act on.
