CNC Art Software
Why BobART for Art?
The Version 25 BobART add-on software module provides you with the ability to turn your artistic imagination into a manufacturing reality! This is an excellent product for trades such as sign making, custom wood working, jewelry making, CNC routing, water jet and more! By opening a jpeg, Bitmap or other picture type image you are just a few steps away from engraving, carving or embossing for creating toolpath and g-code for your CNC machine.
The BobART Add-on provides you with powerful new features for making your embossed sculptures even better. This includes a new 2-rail sweep feature and new smoothing utilities so that you can fine tune the way your relief models look for machining. With a new library of wood and metal textures, you can really create the right look for your art. New file import support includes .ai, .eps and .pdf extensions.
BobART Software Features
The V25 BobART module offers powerful and easy to use features for creating vectorized geometry and embossed models directly from pictures or art. Create an embossed model directly from images, geometry profiles for embossing or just straight raster to vector conversions. It’s a fun art add-on that is easy enough for the beginner yet powerful enough for the advanced CAD/CAM user who wants to perfect his artistic-manufacturing endeavors!

BobART Software Testimonials
“I use the bobART to carve people in pictures. I used your software to put my bosses face on Mount Rushmore and he was amazed! It is all worth it for me when a parent brings me a picture of their baby and I can make a carving with the photo with the help of your BobART. The look on their face is priceless and it’s just wonderful.”
