Delcam has introduced four new modules for ArtCAM Express, the company’s entry-level software for engraving, signmaking and woodworking. ArtCAM Express is the entry-level version in the range of artistic CAD/CAM software offered by Delcam. It includes 2D drawing, more than 600 free pieces of relief clipart and 2D and standard 3D machining functions.

The new options allow users to upgrade their capabilities to match their specific needs at a lower cost than would be required to move to the more powerful ArtCAM Insignia or ArtCAM Pro programs.

In addition, the existing modules for advanced 2D machining and nesting have been enhanced to allow bridges associated with a group of vectors to be amended simultaneously, while the vector-tools module has a new option whereby vector layers can be preserved when a selection of vectors are copied and pasted.

New modules 

  • The first of the new options is the toolpath panelling module, which allows larger jobs to be divided into sections for machining and reassembly once cut. 
  • With the bevel-carving module, a hand-carved look with bevelled edges can be added to frames, moulds or signs.
  • Multiple items with different text on the same underlying design can be created with the multi-plate module using data from text or CSV files.
  • Finally, the new fluting module allows ramping moves in and out of the material to create grooves or textured surfaces. This uses the vectors together with the geometry and motion of the cutting tool.

Delcam supplies software and services that help manufacturing companies to maximise their profitability by increasing productivity, improving quality and reducing lead times.
