Machine shops and CAD-CAM programmers who do specialized, custom signage, displays with a CNC router, mill, waterjet or plasma machine tend to like having a clean library of vectorized clip art that can be brought into a CAD-CAM system as DXF files and used in the machining process.
In these cases the more DXF files that are readily available, the better. Sometimes CAD products can help with vectorizing pictures. BobCAD-CAM developed a specialized add-on system called BobART that does much for creating artistic DXF files from pictures that really compliments the DXF ClipArt package. We found that www.dxfclipart.com is a perfect solution for accessing thousands of “ready-made” DXF files that are all cataloged and broken down by topic and available for purchase at seriously low prices. The site offers a preview of each category so you can see what your buying before making a purchase.
DXF File Themes or Categories Include:
• Fonts & Numbers
• Flowers & Floral Designs
• Border Designs
• Native American Designs
• Patriotic Designs and a lot more!
In all, there are 36 different categories in the collection. Once the DXF files are on your computer you can use them for a wide variety of machining applications from 2D or 3D engraving, carving, profiling, pocketing and many others in 2, 3, 4 and even 5 axis CNC machining situations depending on the CAM software you have.
