The complete software solution for CNC Routing, Sign Making, Wood Carving & Engraving at a truly remarkable price.

VCarve Pro and VCarve Desktop provide a powerful but intuitive software solution for cutting parts on a CNC Router. There are tools for 2D design and calculation of 2D and 2.5D toolpaths and along with the ability to import and toolpath a single 3D model (STL, OBJ, SKP etc.). There is also support to import multiple Vectric Clip Art3D models (V3M) to create advanced 3D assemblies.

The software can import 2D designs from other programs but also provides a full set of drawing and editing tools. The toolpath options cover all typical 2D routing operations such as Profiling, Pocketing, Auto-Inlays and Drilling as well as 2.5D strategies such as V-Carving, Prism carving, Moulding Toolpaths, Fluting and even a decorative Texturing strategy. For 3D you can Rough and Finish the model and there are options to project 2D and 2.5D toolpaths onto the 3D surface. Each toolpath includes appropriate options to customize the settings and provide a high level of control for different types of operations. In addition all toolpaths can be previewed to show just how the part will look when it is actually cut, this allows instant feedback to allow toolpaths to be further optimized.

VCarve includes the functionality demanded for complex work while remaining incredibly easy to use and affordably priced. The software is used by cabinet makers, wood workers, sign makers, prop makers, plastic fabricators, hobbyists and in many other applications.

FAQ

With our systems you will receive the CNC Table with a mini computer pre-installed with all the software you need to build parts or get started creating designs. All systems have advanced Digital Torch Height Control, Breakaway Torch Mount and a Water Pan to reduce plate warpage and dust. The software is pre-configured with cut settings for Mild Steel, Aluminum and Stainless Steel. Our standard software has no recurring licenses or fees. Plasma cutters are sold separately so you can use your own or we can pair a unit up with your needs for cutting capacity. We proudly offer Hypertherm products from a 45xp to the Powermax125.

The primary differences between the Arc Max and Arc Pro tables are how they are intended to be used. For most general fab shops, the Arc Pro tables will work accurately and efficiently to produce accurate parts with clean edges, sharp corners, and round holes. The Arc Pro is best suited for shops that rarely see 1/2″ Mild Steel and thicker materials.

If the intent is full production capability and the machine will see heavy plate on a regular basis, then the Arc Max is an excellent choice. the unitized steel frame is robust and well suited for thick materials. The Hiwin Linear guide rails have sealed cassette bearing block housings with grease-able zerk fittings for easy maintenance. The Arc Max tables also come standard with the following:

  • Welded, unitized steel frame with 3×3, 3/16″ wall steel tubing
  • Hiwen precision linear rails and slides on all axis
  • An 8″ extra deep water pan with expanded metal at the 4″ mark to catch small parts for easy access. The extended depth water pan allows for increased run time before the pan needs to be cleaned= less maintenance
  • 8″ raised gantry clearance standard.
  • Rollers to help loading of large, heavy plate onto the bed of table as a standard feature
  • The material support slat height is flush with the table frame
  • Frame skirting is a standard feature
  • Twin ball valves for easy draining and filling of water pan
  • 3 Emergency stop buttons

Your CNC plasma can cut most metals, including steel, brass, copper, and aluminum. The CNC Router can cut wood, acrylic, aluminum, brass, plastic, foam, composites, phenolic and other solid materials.

All tables come with lifetime support that follows the table to any owner. Our staff of expert full time technical support agents are available Monday-Friday 7:30 am to 4:00 pm PST. They can be reached via email or phone. Occasionally you will have to leave a message, but they return all calls in the order received as we see every call through to resolution. Our support team also monitors our table owners group on Facebook Arclight Dynamics Users Support Forum. This is a gated, owners-only group that is an invaluable resource for new and experienced operators.

Email: support@arclightcnc.com | Phone: 866-222-2154 (option 2).

We offer several options for learning the machine. Every table comes with a comprehensive operation manual that walks you through setup, maintenance, operation and every accessory. In addition to this manual, there are extensive video training modules on every table and on our website. Also, we offer lifetime technical support via phone, email, video conference and remote desktop. Additional training options include in house and on-site training. There may be an additional cost for these services.

Most users are able to get started cutting right away with basic preparations including air, power and water. It is a simple three step process: CAD, CAM and Cut. We will provide you with training resources, references and software ahead of your tables delivery. Also, live technical support is available to help you get up and running as fast as possible.

Our CNC Systems shipped 98% assembled with all the components loaded and secured to the top of the table. We ship partial load LTL, fully insured with a driver no-touch policy. The system is not trans-loaded, moved or otherwise disturbed until it arrives at your location. Offloading will require a forklift or similar machine with extensions to facilitate front or side offload. In some cases where a forklift is not available a tilt-bed roll-off style tow truck can be hired to assist with offloading. All tables are equipped with caster wheels that can be lowered to aid with rolling the table off the truck.

Limited Lifetime Warranty on the table, 3-Year Comprehensive Warranty on the Controller and Motors. 2-Year for other electronics and a 1-Year Computer Warranty.

You have the option of purchasing a 1 or 2 year Extended Warranty for any Arclight Dynamics CNC Plasma Table.

All tables ship fully tested and 98% assembled, making it easy to cut your first masterpiece. An initial training session and lifetime support are included with every table.
