3D CNC Relief Sculpture - ArtCAM
I downloaded and installed Autodesk Artcam 2017 successfully, however I did not see the relief menu. I learned this is not available in the free (trial?) version. It is unfortunate that one of the key capabilities is not available for evaluation... even if it was watermarked or disabled for output so you could understand the functionality. I think that approach would expand the exposure of people to Artcam. I am sticking to Fusion 360 for now and will evaluate an Artcam subscription for later. It might be a good idea to add a note to this instructable class that you cannot complete this lesson with the trial version. The statement "What You'll NeedArtCAM (Windows only- 30 day free trial,...was misleading.Thanks.
3D Milling CAM Setup - Fusion 360
I finally got it to work. My first attempt was to make a pendent, but the resolution of around 1000x1000 was just to much and Fusion locked up. I Second mistake was I didn't have the image object size bigger than the top of the box, and the error message was not very informative. Thanks to others for the tips and sharing their learning. After several attempts and going to the simplest image cropped down to less than 250 x 250 everything magically worked. Moving on to cutting!

Thanks for the tip. I completely missed that the top side of the box needed to be smaller. Once I tried that and simplified the resolution of the image I finally got it to work.
