Software and Information for Machinists

Note: You will need an active trial or subscription to G-Wizard Calculator to run Estimator!

That's because Estimator is Free during Beta Test, but it does everything Calculator can do and more. We'd be giving away our flagship product if we didn't require you to have access to Calculator before using Estimator.

Download and Register G-Wizard Estimator in 5 Easy Steps

1. Download the file for the type of machine you use by clicking on the link below:

- Download PC EXE File


CNCCookbook, Computer Software Publishers & Developers, Aptos, CA

2. After you click the file link, your browser will download the file and it will appear in the lower left corner, like this:

Click the button to run the installer. Make sure G-Wizard is not open before you run the installer.

On Macs, it may complain about an "unidentified developer" a bit, but ignore that. It simply means we're not in the App Store. Instead of double clicking, right click + Open to install on a Mac that's complaining.

When the installer finishes running, the software will open.

Certificate Warning?

Periodically, we upgrade the digital certificate in the software that certifies where it came from. The certificate enhances the security of the software from hacking, so it's important for us to keep it up to date. When we change it, you'll receive a certificate warning. When that happens you need to manually uninstall the prior version before install will work. Use the Windows Control Panel or on Macs, drag the old version to the trash. Once that's done, re-run the install and it should be fine.


3. Once G-Wizard is open, it's time to either register or login. If you've already registered or purchased a subscription, login by pressing the Login button near the top right corner of the software:

Just type in the email address you used to subscribe or register and GW Estimator will log you in. Done! You're ready to use G-Wizard Estimator.


4. If you haven't purchased G-Wizard and haven't registered, now is the time to get that done:

Enter your email address and then Click "Start My Free Trial".


5. In just a few minutes, you'll receive a return email that asks you to confirm by clicking on a link.

Once you click the confirmation link, your trial starts and you can Login to G-Wizard and begin using it. If you can't find the email, be sure to check you Spam folder. We'll send you a new one every time you register too.


Up and Running?

Awesome! Be sure to click the "Getting Started" button in G-Wizard for help learning and using the software.
