Choosing your FREE trial

Our free trial software allows you evaluate each programs capability to see which of our software packages is right for you. You can test the ease of use by creating your own designs and test compatibility with your machine by cutting the sample files included. The free trial will let you use all functions within the software with the exception of saving the toolpaths and performing some 'Export' functions. The Pro versions of the trials also do not allow you to use additional Gadgets.

Once you’ve downloaded the free trial of your chosen software package, work your way through the built in tutorials which give you step by step instructions to creating your first project or choose from a one of our specially selected free projects to cut with your machine.
