    So far the software provides me with the things I need. It is also powerful but not that difficult to learn. If you know coreldraw, illustrator or inkscape, the learning curve will not be steep.

    I'm new to CNC so I've been poking around at options and I absolutely enjoy VCarve Desktop. I made the mistake of not catching it had a size limit, so I'll be upgrading to keep using the platform. Very intuitive.

    This software came highly recommended from friends that already own CnC's. I downloaded the trial first and it is very easy to use. I can't swing (or really justify) the Pro version now but will in the future. Easy to use, easy to understand and very powerful. Spits out ready to use g-code. Highly recommend!
