Free CNC Software from CNCCookbook
We always provide a 30-day trial for our software. In addition, when we're introducing new products, we release them for free while in Beta test and don't charge until we finish the software. Typically you use it for many months if not a year or two when that happens. We don't believe in shipping software until it is great. In addition to all that, some of our software is filled with a ton of free features even if you never subscribe.
So checkout our free stuff!
We do a terrible job advertising it, but most of G-Wizard Calculator is free. Seriously. You sign up for the 30-day free trial, and when that ends, even if you don’t purchase, most of the tabs will go right on working for you. There’s a giant treasure trove of useful calculators, utilities, and reference information there including:
Phew! I can hardly keep up with all of it myself. I know there a lifetime subscribers who are still delighted at the new things they discover. And we just keep adding more all the time!
I thought I’d make a quick video showing how it all works:
All of this will save you time digging through machinery’s handbook or trying to Google for it. It’s all stuff that I use constantly and you will love having it at your fingertips. So what are you waiting for–give the G-Wizard 30-day Trial a try:
BTW, you have the choice of buying the software outright (lifetime subscription) or subscribing. Now I hear all the time from hobbyists who don’t think they can afford G-Wizard. First thing is that one year is cheap–not much more than a single cutter costs. But okay, let’s suppose you still think that’s too expensive. The thing is, at the end of that 1 year, Feeds and Speeds keep right on working too.
What’s the catch?
The catch is that once the subscription expires, there’s a spindle power limit equal to 1 horsepower for each year you subscribe. This is perfect for a hobbyist. A small CNC Router may not be able to use more than a 1 horsepower cut–tiny machines just aren’t rigid enough. That means a lifetime of Feeds and Speeds, limited to 1 HP, for just the cost of 1 year of subscription. It’s perfect for the hobbyist trying to save.
And, if you ever get a more powerful machine, just re-subscribe to unlock the limit. No muss, no fuss.
Everybody who tries G-Wizard Editor loves it because it's the first G-Code software whose focus is on simplifying g-code, and it's also the first to build in Conversational CNC. With conversational CNC, you can work without using CAD. Just answer a few simple questions and GW Editor will write the g-code for you. It's for all those jobs you were thinking would be faster on a manual machine, and it's a totally free additional module you get with G-Wizard Editor.
