One mans expensive is the next mans cheap. To me they are very well priced considering how well they are designed to work on CNC machines and with the Vectric software particularly. There are many other choices that you can find via a Google search as it wouldn't be appropriate to post them on Vectrics own forum. Be prepared for holes in the designs, sections that can only be cut with bits that don't exist, high reliefs that take a lot of scaling down etc etc. As with most things you get what you pay for.
