  • How does the free trial work?
    When you sign up for a free trial you’ll be asked to enter your billing information, but you will not be billed right away. Try it free for 7-days and cancel anytime during that period. After 7 days you will be automatically charged for your selected tier on a recurring basis.

  • What are the ongoing subscription terms?
    Subscriptions are available on a month-to-month basis, or for the best value, select an annual plan (save 5%) or a plan that renews every 3 years (save 10%).

  • What’s included in the free trial?
    You will receive a full working version of the software that you can download and install on your PC.

  • Does the free trial export NC code for cutting?
    Yes, as long as you request a setup file for your unique cutting machine. This allows ProNest LT to communicate with your machine and export the correct code.

  • Will ProNest LT work with my machine?
    ProNest LT works with virtually any conventional plasma or oxyfuel cutting machine brand or model. If you have concerns about an unusual machine or custom table, please feel free to contact us for more information. For high-definition plasma, laser, or waterjet cutting, please see ProNest, our advanced level nesting software.

  • Can I switch from a perpetual license to a subscription?
    Yes. Please contact us for more information.
