Today’s article will explain the BobART Manager and where to locate it in the software. BobART is available as an add-on module to any of the milling CAD-CAM software products. It allows users such as yourself to apply creative artwork to CNC manufactured parts. This powerful artistic software allows you to take a picture or drawing and convert it into a relief model or vectorized geometry that can be machined by a CNC mill, router, waterjet, laser, or burning machine. Simply open an image file and you’re just a few steps away from engraving, carving, or embossing with powerful CAM programming. Utilize BobART for the following applications: sign making, custom woodworking, jewelry making, instrument machining, engraving work, mold making, and much more.
Where to Find Your BobART Manager
The BobART Manager is located, by default, on the left side of the application, docked with the Data Entry Manager, the CAD Tree Manager, and the CAM Tree Manager. The location of the BobART Manager, however, can be adjusted to preference, as explained in the “How to Use Your Docking Panes” Tech Tuesday article. The BobART Manager is what gives you access to all BobART functionality, which is explained in the following paragraph.
