Iceculture is utilising ArtCAM Pro software from Delcam to reduce the time it takes to complete its ice-carving projects and to help the company deliver a more consistent product.

Iceculture has produced a range of ice-based products, including 3D ice sculptures, ice furniture, ice lounges and other items for customers such as the Toronto Film Festival.

A recent project called for the creation of a 20ft-long and 9ft-wide hockey rink made entirely of ice, which included corporate logos, holes and hatches for shot glasses and table space for served food.

Iceculture designers are able to import 3D models into ArtCAM. They can then simplify the model, divide it into blocks of ice and generate toolpaths to cut each block with an ice router.

Key benefits of product application

  • ArtCAM software has enabled Iceculture to replicate corporate logos quickly and accurately.
  • The software’s sculpting tools helped Matt White, CNC programmer for Iceculture, bring together the divided sections of a 3D ice swan and blend the shapes together.
  • ArtCAM enables the design and production of these ice sculptures faster than would be possible with manual methods.
