Thread: Vectric Price rises
The original pre Autocad buy out Artcam was written by Mark Moran and Tony McKenzie who then went on to start Vectric.
Vectric incidentally has won the Queens Award for industry two years on the trot.
Not sure how the subscription service for Artcam works as regards copies and being online but I have a copy of VCP on about 4 machines here, all on the same licence and only one machine can get on the net.

I have VCarve Desktop and absolutely love it. Intuitive and very easy to use. My only beef with the software, apart from the cost, is it being limited to 625 mm x 625 mm jobs. It also lacks any 3D modelling ability; so you can't draw or create your own 2D to 3D shapes. For that I'd need to upgrade to Aspire, but there's no way I could justify spending £1,500 on it.Bought a Chinese 6040...if only I'd known better :(
looks like we loose again in the UK Brexit was such a good idea wasn't it, stuffed our currency :(
If you pay by the year, you save 33%.
In the US, ArtCAM is $45/month, but only $360 if you pay for a year. They also have 2 and 3 year subscriptions that lower the price a little more, 3 years for $970.
I've been paying monthly till i find an alternative and Vcarve looks like it really.
Just looked at Artcam premium prices OMG!

Brexit has nothing to do with the prices. We were shafted on the pounds to dollars thing years before that.John S -
