Hi Belin,

I think you are going to struggle to find free software that produces a good quality of multi-line engraving and layout.

OK it may be a Gold Card purchase but Vectric VCarvePro is so quick and easy to use that it pays for itself in the shortest possible time.

What software is it that you can’t actually download ??

Hi Belin,

EngraveLab is exactly what I would have liked but that requires a Platinum Card so Vectric was my next best choice. There may be some advantage of me upgrading from VCarve to Aspire but that will have to wait a while. Why am I always broke ?  :D

With F-Engrave you will need to download the win-zip file, un-zip it file then transfer the folder to your chosen computer. (Just as a tip it is better to run your CAD / CAM software on your main computer and leave your machine computer with just Mach3 and the minimum of anything you need).

Berlin,
You need to think hard of what you plan on doing not only now but also in the future.
Take your time.
You can spend hours trying, downloading, learning different software. In the end most free stuff leaves something to be desired. I will say that exploring the different software has educational benefits.

FWIW,
RICH
