Is Wizard software available for an outsource?

I have a source that with CMC that I use on "difficult" projects. I am wondering if there is any way I can get a copy of the program so I can do the "layout" and just give it on disk? And what about custom shapes not already done on the program?

Any advise welcome.

Thank you,


Don't tell anyone I told you, but you can have your "source" buy a copy for $79, give that copy to you and then you can design to your hearts content and save the files. Then just put the files on a disk or e-mail them to your "source" and voila, your "source" has the file.

Keep it a secret though.

Ohh this feels like international spy stuff.

Thank you and I will keep this a secret. Hope no one else reads this post - just in case.


Better delete this thread now, before it's too late.

Cutart that is not with the package can be designed in CADD or Corel and saved as a DXF file, it still has to be massaged in VCADD to cut. But then you could get a copy of VCADD too.

It wouldn't be a bad idea to make a non-cutting version (Save only) for instances like these, however it would mean you might not sell,lease etc as many machines if you do. Make it available for a nominal fee. Eclipse has done this I believe.

We have a version that allows you to print the design but not save it. I don't see us changing this philosophy in the near future. Having said that, $79 for the capability of designing your own stuff and having the option to send it to be cut seems pretty reasonable to me.

In baseball terms I would call that a "farm system". As a shop gets comfortable using the software, they see how many more options they can offer their customers. It doesn’t take too many jobs to justify $245 per month, and voila. it's time for them or order a Wizard of their very own.

Better stop here or this will start sounding like a sale pitch.
