Delcam schedules webinars on ArtCAM artistic CADCAM software
Delcam has scheduled a series of webinar demonstrations of the Express and Insignia versions of its ArtCAM range of artistic CADCAM software. The first webinar will be on 15th August and will feature a demonstration of the design of a rubber stamp with ArtCAM Express.
The series will continue with ArtCAM Express demonstrations on 5th September and 3rd October, and ArtCAM Insignia demonstrations on 29th August and 26th September. For further details and to register for the webinars, please go to www.artcam.com/events.asp.
Unlike most other CADCAM systems, the ArtCAM range is aimed at artisans and craftspeople rather than engineers, and requires little knowledge of engineering or computing. It has been particularly successful in the signmaking, woodworking and engraving industries. In these areas and in other artistic applications, ArtCAM software allows users to increase productivity, improve quality and deliver new designs more rapidly than with traditional methods, by combining their craft skills and creativity with the power and precision of computer-aided manufacturing.
ArtCAM Express is the entry-level version designed for hobbyists and users new to CNC. The program offers 2D drawing, over 600 free pieces of relief clipart, and 2D and standard 3D machining functions, for only US$149, £99 or €125. It provides an ideal introduction to computer-based manufacturing for companies involved in engraving, signmaking, and other areas of decorative metalworking and woodworking. A trial version can be downloaded from www.artcam.com/express.
ArtCAM Insignia is a professional version that includes additional tools for 3D design and manufacturing. As well as allowing users to create more complex designs, these extra options allow quick and efficient manufacture of multiple copies of designs by CNC machining. The trial version is available from www.artcam.com/insignia.
