Surfing around Pintrest ran into BADOG CNC Software. Has anyone ever tried them?

In their website they do not mention anything about the cnc hardware interface that is required in order to work so I guess that it is working only with their line of cnc machines.

Pretty sure that the CAM software outputs G-code and is not tied to any hardware.

On the other hand the software is about ~$725 unless you buy one of their milling machines.

I'm using the badog cad/cam software with my machine is perfect for me,very helpful it's really easy to use, plenty of options too, I can even import files from AutoCAD, Solidworks, IDEAS, NX, CorelDraw..works with any machine because it is capable of writing the gcode ,it's not hardware related.
