I just bought a Shapeoko XXL and was looking around for some other CAM software besides Carbide Create. I came across some vids on YouTube of some guys using Vectric and decided to give it a try. I’m interested in buying it but when i went to purchase it came up with a “warning” that the Cut2D Desktop is designed for small machines w/ a maximum bed-size area of 24" x 24" and that if you have anything bigger you need to upgrade to the Pro version. My question is what does bed-size have anything to do with it when you can select material types and cut pieces out as big (or bigger) as your table? Why does the software have concerns about bed size?
Note: i’m just a garage DIY’r that loves wood working so i don’t need anything with tons of horsepower. The price of the desktop version is attractive but the Pro version is almost 4x as high & is not attractive at all.
