Transform your artistic imagination into manufacturing reality!

BobART is available as an add-on module to any of the milling CAD-CAM software products. It allows you to apply creative artwork to CNC manufactured parts. This powerful artistic software allows you to take a picture or drawing and convert it into 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. This is a must have CNC router software and CAD design tool for industries that work with sign making, custom wood working, jewelry making, instrument machining, engraving work, mold making, and much more.

NEW FEATURE: Redesigned User Interface

The newly redesigned user interface features a modern, Ribbon-style UI. This will help users discover functions easier. With the intuitive organization of the interface, users will be able to remember where functions are easier, and as the software grows, it will be much easier to find new functions in already familiar groups. Discover all the exciting and powerful new features in BobCAD-CAM V31.

ART FEATURES

The latest BobART technology is a fun art add-on that’s easy enough for the novice or occasional user, yet powerful enough for the advanced CAD-CAM user that wants to perfect their artistic manufacturing projects. The artistic features of BobART include: the ability to wrap models, emboss models from imported STL file components, save components or the entire project as an STL, access up to 64 different vectorization color levels, use custom cross sections to have more control over creating your embossed models and much more. From basic 2 through 3 axis machining, the integrated and fully associative CAM software provides the means of creating some of the most intricate and amazing artistic results seen today.

Sketch, Photo, or Image Conversion From Raster to Vector

Sketch a design on paper or take a photo/image, scan it to your computer, and import the file to BobART. From here you can easily convert your sketch, photo, or image to vector and edit the geometry as needed to prepare it for embossing, debossing, and relief jobs.

Embossing & Wrapping

Easily wrap a 2D image file onto a 3D model for embossing and debossing jobs.

Create A Relief Model From An Image

The “Emboss From Image” function in BobART allows you to instantly create a relief model from an image file.

Texturing, Sculpting, & Smoothing

Machine a range of surface textures and finishes to give your parts a custom look and feel. Do everything from a hand carved look to perfectly smooth finishes, wavy surfaces, geometric textures, and much more.

Emboss From Component

BobART gives you the ability to either import STL files or utilize previously created embossed files and use them in combination with one another on new jobs.

V-Carving

V-Carving functionality allows you to use a v-cutting tool or combination v-cutter and end mill to create flats with tapered walls, perfect for custom woodworking and sign making applications. Additionally, the v-carving wizard allows you to create a chiseled finish by automatically generating a centerline toolpath for your fonts.
