ArtCAM Premium allows complex reliefs (ArtCAM 3D models) to be created quickly and easily from 2D vectors (ArtCAM Wireframe) or bitmaps (Image files). These vectors and bitmaps can be generated within ArtCAM or imported from other systems. ArtCAM can also import 3D Surface data, which is translated on entry or after as a Relief model. ArtCAM contains tools for editing the reliefs and combining stored reliefs. Once a 3D relief has been created, toolpaths can be generated to machine it. Multiple toolpaths are easily generated for roughing, finishing and engraving. The toolpaths can then be simulated to allow complete visualization of the product before machining. This course will cover all the basics you need to know to create projects in ArtCAM Premium!
