It's $7,710 US, Rick, and $10,432 Canadian. Not that that helps any...

Yes ,that would take a lot of sales to pay it off . I think it’s aimed at the bigger corporations ?

It's basically the same price ArtCAM Pro was before Autodesk bought it and made it subscription.

For those who bought it, would you have bought it had you'd known it would be $1600 to upgrade?
And if you don't upgrade for more than a year, will they charge even more to upgrade?

It's a little shady that they didn't tell people what the actual price would be when they had the introductory offer.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

I used CorelDraw 8 from 1997 until I upgraded to CorelDraw X8 in 2016, so unless Carveco quits working I'll probably do the same thing and use this first Carveco version for a long, long time. It would take some significant event or job that requires an upgrade for me to do so.

Wow. That's an investment!

I thought Aspire was expensive, I probably could have got by with Vcarve Pro, but if you need the model features, they come in handy. Hopefully V10 is a year or two further down the road.

I figure Aspire 10 will be released in Denver this October at the conference.

Well, those of us who bought at $1300 get the upgrades and support for a year, they’ve already put a couple minor fix ones out, expect they’ll have a few more before the year is out. The license is perpetual, and I imagine the support forums will continue to be available, just won’t be able to put in a support ticket for personalized support. As David said, we may just continue using this version for quite a while. Probably take quite a while to learn all the present functionality.

Who knows where annual upgrade pricing will end up. When ArtCAM 2018 was under AutoDesk, at $360 per year, they had a one day sale and I got it for $99. That license turned into a perpetual one when they took it off market.

They are obviously aware of their competition and their pricing, so we’ll see how things play out. What I have now was cheaper than Aspire, and appears to have all that capability and then some (my $99 version of ArtCAM had equivalent 3d modeling functions, Carveco has more). Just hoping they get more tutorials and other learning materials published.

Right now I expect their initial target was converting existing ArtCAM owners, haven’t really gone after new customers. Pricing suggests they are after the commercial/professional market, not the hobbyists, but I imagine as they settle in, they may decide to go after that (now) larger group. While there has always been a few hobbyists, with creative but comparatively crude home built machines, I think the explosion in high quality machine electronics at vastly lower prices, easy availability of low cost linear rails, lower cost kit machines, and hobbyists with the means to buy lower end (<$30k) commercial machines has created a much larger market than existed 10 years ago. Vectric has been actively going after that segment, and doing a good job. I think it will be tempting to Carveco as well, if and when they want to grow their base, and they will need to adjust pricing to be competitive. The high price now may be to create a greater perceived value at some point in the future.
