Mastercam Art

Art står för "Artistic Relief Technology" och ger dig möjligheten att snabbt och enkelt skapa sofistikerade 3D skulpturbilder från enkla 2D bilder och handskisser. Vad som hade tagit en avancerad ytmodellerare flera veckor att modellera upp, kan du nu skapa på några minuter
jewelryMastercam Art förenklar det tidigare tidskrävande arbetet med att skapa 3D ytmodeller från 2D underlag. Den låter dig "skulptera" och ändra modeller på skärmen tills du får önskat resultat. Du kan till och med "frihandsarbeta" och få ett utmärkt resultat utan att du behöbver bry dig om exakta mått. Art har utmärkta visualiseringsverktyg och direkt editering, du kan arbeta med exakta mått eller på frihand.

Mastercam Art är ett tillägg till Mastercam Fräsning eller Mastercam Router.


Combining an Artist's Eye With a Computer's Ease

Mastercam Art ger dig möjlighet att skulptera i 3D på ett enkelt sätt utan att behöva vara en expert på ytmodellering. Du kan snabbt forma och ändra din modell på skärmen tills den ser ut precis som du vill ha den. Art har utmärkta visualiseringsverktyg och direkt editeringsfunktioner.

Save your knowledge

It's common to re-use your creation settings on various jobs. Mastercam Art lets you save off your favorite combinations as "presets," ready to be used again in an instant.


Quick Creation

Mastercam Art's power is its ability to create complex organic surfaces with a few simple clicks. Once you have selected the basic outline of your project, you can quickly "puff it up" by applying a cross-section to it. You can create your own, or use a dynamic cross-section from the included library.


Easy Refinement

You choose to refine your cross-section shape "by eye" through clicking and dragging control points on the graph, or with mathematical precision by entering values.


Sculpting Options

Mastercam Art's various application styles let you add, subtract, intersect, and blend multiple organic shapes. You can test a variety of dramatically different looks by simply choosing various application styles for each shape.


Beginners can create their first complex models by defining shapes from clipart or their own scanned artwork. Experienced CAD/CAM users have a full range of modeling tools to create even more sophisticated pieces. And in all cases, Mastercam Art tracks your model step by step, allowing quick and easy modifications any time you want.Relief Manager

Relief Manager

Track your project step by step with Mastercam's Relief Manager. You can instantly adjust, reorder, or edit each element, letting you put the finishing touches on your project and giving you complete control. Hide and show elements for fast design changes.


Rough Model Gets Precise With a Single Click

Model using a "quick" screen resolution for fast redraws and experimentation. You can boost the resolution at any point to get a crisp model with as much detail as you need.


Experimentation Made Easy

Quickly undo and redo your modeling steps, ensuring that your model is always flexible and you can go back to previous versions.


Stack It Up In Minutes


Once you've modeled your project, Mastercam Art gives you a wide variety of cutting techniques to ensure the part comes off the machine exactly how you imagined it.

Mastercam Art's toolpaths are created specifically for accurately
machining artistic surfaces. Built with an eye toward speed, these
toolpaths give you machine-ready results - usually in seconds.


Pick the Perfect Technique

Mastercam gives you a powerful set of techniques/strategies to fit every project. Roughing toolpaths use big tools for quick stock removal, while finishing toolpaths use smaller tools to pick up the detail. You can choose ball, bullnose, flat, and a variety of taper cutters.


Machine at the Resolution You Need

Mastercam Art starts with a clean "canvas" to which you add your art. These canvases can easily be combined into a single project, letting you model highly detailed work on a "high resolution" canvas section and
looser work on a "medium resolution" section. This can dramatically speed your modeling and programming time. You can also put these
canvases on different machining planes for added flexibility.


Save Your Knowledge

Mastercam's Operations Manager lets you edit your cut strategies at any time, and generate a new toolpath with a single click. You can also save off successful sets of strategies, and apply them quickly to future jobs.


See it Before You Cut It

See what your part will look like when it comes off the machine with Mastercam's solid-model toolpath verification. Watch the part being cut on-screen, and inspect it by rotating and zooming in on any detail.

THE PROCESS

Mastercam lets you go from "art to part" with a single software package. A simple process takes you from your flat art to a beautifully sculpted piece that comes off the machine with exactly the look you want.

Import ArtImport art

Bring in clip art, a CAD file, or a scanned sketch or photograph. Mastercam Art converts the artwork into flat, machinable geometry, giving you a basic palette from which to craft your finished model.

If you need ideas to start your project, Mastercam's Classic Art Library gives you 5,000 artistic elements to easily place in your model.


Build a 3D ModelBuild 3D model

Quickly create a full 3D sculpture from your 2D artwork by picking elements of your flat art. Mastercam "puffs up" the art using a cross-section you control. You can add or remove one section from another, and easily modify the model by eye to make sure it's exactly what you want.


Create a ToolpathCreate toolpath

Pick one of Mastercam Art's specialized toolpaths to cut your project. These fast, reliable cut strategies are easily modified, letting you quickly try out a variety of cut techniques for the perfect result.


Machine It On-ScreenVerify

Using Mastercam's solid-model verification, you can see an on-screen simulation of your cut part before you put stock on the machine.


Output Code To Your Machine

Quickly create G code for your machine using Mastercam's extensive post processor library.

Single-click Mold Creation

After you've created your "positive" model, you can convert it into a mold with one simple mouse click. It can also automatically reverse your text.


From Picture to Sculpture

Mastercam Art delivers powerful, easy, artistic tools, including the ability to create a 3D model directly from a digital image. Scan in a photo, and Mastercam Art will create an organic, sculpted piece using the highlights and shadows as guidelines for height.


Hardware Requirements

The following suggestions are a minimum performance specification. To increase performance, the best value for the dollar is to increase the processor speed, then the RAM and finally the graphic card memory.

  • Art only runs on the current Maintenance release of Mastercam Mill Levels 1-3, Router, and Router Pro. Art does not run on Entry-level products, Design, or Draft.
  • Operating Systems-XP or Windows Vista
  • Processor-Intel Pentium 4, 2 GHz processor or better
  • Memory - 1 Gb memory or better
  • Windows compatible mouse
  • Minimum resolution is 1024x768, 1280x1024 or better is recommended.
  • Graphics Cards - 128 MB memory with 1280x1024 graphics mode or better.
    (Nvidia has been a very successful graphics card for Mastercam.)
