Vectric VCarve is a powerful and affordable 2D vector CAD/CAM program that is easy to learn and Vectric's most popular program. VCarve includes the functionality required for complex work in an easy-to-use and affordably priced. The software is widely used by cabinet makers, wood workers, sign makers, prop makers, plastic fabricators, hobbyists.

Wide variety of toolpath strategies

Easily create different toolpaths including to profiling, pocketing, drilling, V-carving, auto-inlays, 3D roughing, 3D finishing, prism carving, fluting and texturing.

Ideal for use with a CNC router

VCarve Pro is intuitive and easy to learn, with all the features and capabilities to get the most out of your CNC router. The software includes tools for 2D CAD design, and can calculate 2D and 2.5D toolpaths. You can also import and create toolpaths for 2D and 3D models, and VCarve support Vectric Clip Art 3D models, enabling you to create 3D assemblies.

Customizable tools and toolpaths

Each aspect of every toolpath can be adjusted, and toolpaths can be previewed in the simulator to show how the part will be cut, and what the result will look like. This saves both valuable machine time and expensive materials.

The tool library allows you to edit, create, and modify the specifications of cutters you use with your CNC router. A handy notes field lets you record information about each cutter.

VCarve Desktop gives you the power to produce complex 2D patterns with profile, pocket, drill and inlay toolpaths, and the ability to create designs with v-carving textures as well as import and machine unlimited Vectric 3D clipart or single model files.

The Desktop edition is designed for small CNC machines, aimed at hobby or non-production environments.

Full set of drawing and editing tools

Use VCarve Desktop's array of tools to create or edit designs.

Create 2.5D toolpaths

Toolpaths with variable depths such as V-carving, prism carving, mouldings, textures, fluting, 3D roughing and 3D finishing can be programmed easily.

Import and machine single 2D or 3D models

Models created in another program or downloaded can be imported for toolpath creation. Some common compatible file types are STL, OBJ, 3DM and SKP.

$2000 Worth of free Clipart

VCarve Desktop includes 2D and 3D Clipart that can be used in your own projects or edited to create new variations.

Limited job and toolpath Size

Toolpaths are limited to 24” x 24”, but larger workpieces can be created using the toolpath tiling function.

Customizable tools and toolpaths

Each aspect of every toolpath can be adjusted, and toolpaths can be previewed in the simulator to show how the part will be cut, and what the result will look like. This saves both valuable machine time and expensive materials.
