This is the desktop version of V Carve, which is different than VCarve Pro. V Carve Pro is about double the price and includes some additional features that are more apt to a production environment (such as part nesting). The main difference is that VCarve Desktop is limited to a 24×24″ work area, which is perfect for most of our machines. (The Power Route has a slightly larger movement range than this).
