    Any idea if the introductory offer is still in effect?

    Does anyone know how much of the regular price is the software and how much is the maintenance contract? I couldn't find out on their website.

    It's certainly well hidden...I've tried Chrome and Firefox and can find the total cost of the software and maintenance in the store, but not just the cost of the annual maintenance.

    the price of the software is set, which includes 12 months of maintenance is the way I'm reading that, and it appears the yearly maintenance has not be set yet but would expect it to be comparable to previous Delcam versions with a modest inflation increase.

    Yearly maintenance is around $1500. For those with sticker shock, CarveCo is about the same price as ArtCAM was 20 years ago give or take $150. Maintenance fees are also about the same. I'm really glad I was able to get in on the introductory offering.

    Although I don't like to speculate on other companies pricing structure, just for clarity, maintenance for Delcam Artcam Pro and Jewelsmith was $1200, Insignia was $450. Since Carveco only comes in premium version at present, which is equivalent to Jewelsmith and being in line with the selling price structure I expect maintenance will be $1350. Knowing what you get under the maintenance, to me it's a its well worth the money spent.

    Now as a business its overhead, its a tax deductible expense. if we take the 1350 and divide by 12 months = 112.50. most people pay more for TV per month than that. As a business you should pro rata the cost and add as overhead to each job, its the same for any other software upgrade, lease or maintenance package you may use.
    Now as a hobbyist, it may well be a sticker shock, but as its perpetual license software, it's not a requirement to take maintenance or upgrades at every release .....
    This is just food for thought not to start an open argument over software !
