Carbide Create Pro

3D Modelling and Machining

Carbide Create Pro adds 3D modelling plus high-productivity toolpaths to our free Carbide Create without the steep learning curve of a full 3D CAD/CAM package.

With Carbide Create Pro you'll be able to create complex 3D parts with just a few quick operations.

Carbide Create Pro outputs standard G-code so it'll work with most CNC machines, not just CNC machines from Carbide 3D.

This trial is fully functional for 14 days so you can generate G-code and try a full project.

Everything in Carbide Create plus these Pro features:

Create 3D Components from Vectors

Select a 2D vector and some basic shape parameters to create a 3D component

Combine Multiple Components

Multiple components can be layered and combined in a variety of ways to create a wide range of shapes.

Apply Textures

Load an image as a heightmap to be tiled onto your parts to create realistic-looking textures.

Load Images as Heightmaps

If you have a single image to load as a heightmap you can load it and create a component directly.

(This one is from a beta user, a heightmap of Mt. Hood)

3D Rough Machining

Powerful 3D toolpaths to remove the bulk of the material in a job and ensure that your part is ready for finishing.

3D Finish Machining

3D Finishing rasters back and forth across the part to give your project its final shape.

Engraving Toolpaths

The Engraving toolpath creates an outline path as well a lined or hatched fill path. The Engrave toolpath is perfect for traditional engraving cutters or diamond drag engravers like our own MC Etcher Diamond Drag Engraver.

Rest Machining

Rest machining allows you to use a second, smaller cutter to clean up a pocket after a larger cutter is used to remove most of the material.

If you have big areas to be cleared, but also have small details to preserve, Rest Machining will save you a lot of time.


Ramped entry for contour and pocket makchining reduces cutter load and makes it easier to cut hard materials like brass and aluminum.

That means longer cutter life and faster machining times.

STL Import

Carbide Create Pro V7 allows you to load an STL file into the 3D model to add shapes and objects that would be difficult to model from scratch.

Save Standard G-code

In Carbide Create V7, the G-code is saved into the Carbide Create design file.

Create Pro adds the option to save standard G-code to run on any CNC machine, not just Carbide 3D machines.
