Characteristic

VCarve Pro offers powerful, but intuitive software for 2D design and calculating toolpaths for 2D and 2.5D for cutting elements in the milling plotter. It includes the features required by users and commercial shops, while remaining extremely easy to use and affordable. VCarve Pro is used by manufacturers of furniture fronts, carpenters, advertising agencies, hobbyists and in many other applications.

 

The software can import 2D designs from other software, but also has a complete set of tools for drawing and editing with advanced layout options, such as True-Shape optimization. The toolpath options include all standard 2D milling operations, such as profiling, pockets, automatic inlays and drilling, as well as the application of 2.5D such as the V-bit carving, and even decorative texturing. Each toolpath includes appropriate options to adjust and ensure a high level of control for different types of operation. Furthermore, all toolpaths can be viewed, to show how the part will be cut, resulting in immediate optimization.

 

The software includes:

  • Complete set of 2D Design and layout tools
  • Control of layers, guide lines and snap grid
  • Nesting/Optimization to minimize material waste
  • Text editing and single line engraving fonts
  • File import – DWG, DXF, EPS, AI and PDF
  • Image file import – BMP, JPG, TIF, GIF
  • Ability to vectorise images

  • 2D profiling with interactive tabs, bridges, lead and ramp options
  • Pocketing with optimization for 2 cutters
  • Drilling with option for deep holes
  • Creation of bevelled letters
  • Custom moulding and form cutters
  • Ability to work with rotary axis
  • Multi-colour toolpath previews
