Mastercam Art allows you to bring 2D sketches, clip art, photos, and CAD files to life by crafting them on-screen and cutting them with easy, specialized toolpaths. What would have taken a signmaker or other artisan weeks to do can now be done in minutes.
Mastercam Art eliminates many of the typical problems of creating machinable artwork. Input ranging from a scanned pencil drawing to a fully developed CAD model, can be quickly "sculpted" on-screen in 3D until it looks the way you want it. A suite of software tools allows for easy and quick changes, or reverting to a previous design. Once you have modeled your project, Mastercam Art has a wide variety of fast cutting techniques to ensure the part comes off the machine exactly as imagined.
Organic Artwork in 5 Easy Steps:
Step 1: Import Art – Bring in clip art, a CAD file, or a scanned drawing or photograph. Mastercam Art converts the artwork into flat, machinable geometry, giving you a basic palette from which to craft your finished model. Mastercam Art also has a Classic Art Library of over 5,000 artistic elements to easily place in your model.
Step 2: Build a 3D Model – Create a full 3D sculpture from 2D artwork by picking elements of your flat art. Mastercam "puffs up" the art using a cross-section you control. Easily modify the model by eye until it is exactly the way you want.
Step 3: Create a Toolpath – Pick one of Mastercam Art's specialized toolpaths to cut your project. These strategies are easily modified, so you can try out a variety of cutting techniques to get that perfect result.
Step 4: Machine it On-Screen – Using Mastercam's solid-model verification, you can see an on-screen simulation of your part before you put stock on the machine.
Step 5: Output Code to Your Machine – Quickly create Gcode for your machine using Mastercam's extensive post processor library.
"Mastercam Art gives me the perfect combination of free-form art and user-friendly technology," says Robert Hendricks, owner of Hendricks Manufacturing and Mastercam Art tester in Salt Lake City, UT. Mastercam Art is an add-on to Mastercam Mill or Mastercam Router products.
