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.
Flat End V-Tools

Flat End V-Tools(New Feature)

Users can define a flat end diameter for their V-Tools, providing more accurate programming and simulation of V carving with BobART.

Raster To Vector

Load image files into the CAD screen like: JPG, BMP, TIFF, GIF, PNG, PSD, AFP and more… Manually trace over using lines, arcs and splines. Convert images to geometry faster using the vectorizing feature. Adjust quality using parameters with the option to scale to size.

V Carving

This popular toolpath mainly used by sign makers allows users to carve letters, shapes and other patterns with V tools generating a hand carved look.

Create/Modify Stock

Set up your BobART stock parameters and control the area of embossment, it’s resolution and special features to prepare files to be saved as a component. Wrapping mode is used to convert 3D embossments to 4D.

Emboss Regular

Select closed profile chains and emboss them in 3D by using one of 7 cross sections like: Convex ARC, Line, Concave ARC, Convex Ellipse, Concave Ellipse, Spline or Custom.

Emboss Sweep

Select closed or open profile chains and emboss sweep them in 3D by using one of 7 cross sections like: Convex ARC, Line, Concave ARC, Convex Ellipse, Concave Ellipse, Spline or Custom.

Emboss 2 Rail Sweep

Select 2 rails and 1 cross section to emboss sweep with elevation changes.Customize transitions by using linear, local smooth or global types.

Emboss From Image

Use images grayscale to control embossment heights.

BobCAD-CAM Artistic CAD software

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.
