Makershop are an authorised reseller of Mach3 licenses. 

The Mach3 software has been developed with an active community of volunteers, testers, and helpful experts who have guided its development over a period of years. In appreciation to this community, a registered user is permitted to use all versions of Mach software with one license. Non-commercial users (aka hobbyists) are permitted to use one license for as many machines as they want. For commercial users (anybody who uses the software to generate profit), a separate license is required for each machine. Mach1, Mach2, and Mach3 may all be used on one computer, but only one version of each will co-exist on a single computer.

A license is only required on the computer(s) actually running the machine(s). If a computer not connected to a machine is used to test code, please use Mach3 in Simulation mode - it will remove the 500 line limit. Simulation mode can be accessed by uninstalling (or not installing) the Parallel Port Driver.

Full details of the software's capabilities, system requirements and licensing system are available from the Mach3 Website.

Please download the full version of our software and give it a try before buying a license. We are sure you will find it useful and a great value. Come back and purchase a license for the software, once you are satisfied it will work for your needs. The license code will unlock features, limits, or time restrictions.

Please don’t buy a license until you have tried our software and are 100% satisfied.

Due to the nature of the license generation process, once the license file has been ordered your purchase is non-refundable.
