Delcam Announces Entry Level Version of ArtCAM 2DCreate or import for CNC engraving or routing (January 14, 2002)
Designs can be created using ArtCAMs comprehensive drawing and text creation tools. Alternatively, they can be imported from other graphics packages or as Bitmap images or scans. Once created, designs can easily be edited, rotated or scaled within the software. Special tools allow text to be placed along or around any shape of curve.
Once the design has been completed a wide range of machining options is available, including 3D engraving with V-bit cutters, automatic area clearance using multiple tools, and precision engraving with automatic corner sharpening. Realistic 3D simulations can be used to verify all toolpaths before sending them to the CNC machine.
Integrated nesting can automatically position a series of objects inside a user definable block of material, ensuring minimal material wastage when the parts are manufactured.
