VCarve Desktop provides a powerful, intuitive CNC software solution that is oriented toward users machining parts smaller than 24'' x 24'', or hobbyists with lighter-duty machines. The software includes tools for 2D design and calculation of 2D and 2.5D toolpaths, along with the ability to import and toolpath a single 3D model (STL, OBJ etc.). There is also support to import multiple Vectric Clip Art 3D models (V3M) to create 3D assemblies.


The software can import 2D designs from other programs but also provides a full set of drawing and editing tools. The toolpath options cover all typical 2D routing operations such as Profiling, Pocketing, Auto-Inlays and Drilling as well as 2.5D strategies such as V-Carving, Prism carving, Fluting and even a decorative Texturing strategy. For 3D you can Rough and Finish the model and there are options to project 2D and 2.5D toolpaths onto the 3D surface. Each toolpath includes appropriate options to customize the settings and provide a high level of control for different types of operation. In addition, all toolpaths can be previewed to show just how the part will look when it is actually cut, this allows instant feedback to allow toolpaths to be further optimized.


VCarve includes the functionality demanded for complex work while remaining incredibly easy to use and affordably priced. The software is used by cabinet makers, wood workers, sign makers, prop makers, plastic fabricators, hobbyists and in many other applications. VCarve V9.0 software is also available in a "V9.0 Pro'' version (#58150, sold separately), which is oriented more toward professionals or woodworkers who machine parts larger than 24'' x 24''.

Vectric VCarve is great software
I recently retired and decided to get back into using my CNC router which had set idle for several years. As part of this process, I decided I needed better CAD/CAM software and settled on Vectric VCarve Desktop. I have not been disappointed. VCarve is simple to learn, but very powerful. Vectric also provides many training videos and has an excellent user forum.

Very nice software
I have been able to make signs with ease, it took me about 20 minutes to learn. I just wish it was easier to get 3d clipart that is free.

Do you have to be connected to the internet to use software?
Sheesy on Jul 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Although being connected to the internet makes the registration process easier since you don't have to manually a huge license code, you don't have to be connected when you are using the software.

There are several menu options in the software to go to links on the internet - like the user forum and Online FAQs, but these are all outside the normal operation of the software.
