a Camera can also be added for cutting stickers and designs of your choice. This software is much cheaper than CorelDraw or Adobe Illustrator with similar drawing functions but is designed more for the cutting industry. At a selling price of $80 at a bargain price especially those customers still using a crack version of CorelDraw and if your machine uses a diffrent controller, we can upgrade your controller to use the Ruida controller.
