Delcam will demonstrate a number of new options in the 2015 R2 version of its ArtCAM Insignia artistic CADCAM software during a special Halloween webinar on Thursday 29 October. 

The demonstration will show how to create a Halloween-themed chocolate mould, ideal for producing chocolates for trick-or-treaters. To register, please click here.

A cross-section of the latest functionality will be covered, including new tools to help when designing with vectors, and new options to create and edits shapes in three D with real-time updating.  Advice will be given on how to select the most suitable cutting tools and machining strategies, and how to simulate machining to ensure the results are exactly as expected.

Unlike most other CADCAM systems, the ArtCAM range of software is aimed at artisans and hobbyists rather than engineers. The programs are designed to require little knowledge of engineering or computing. ArtCAM Insignia has been particularly successful in the volume production of artistic items in 2D or 3D by signmakers, woodworkers and engravers, among others. In all these areas, ArtCAM Insignia allows users to increase productivity, improve quality and deliver new designs more quickly, by combining their craft skills and creativity with the power and precision of computer-aided manufacturing. 

Delcam supplies software and services that help manufacturing companies to maximise their profitability by increasing productivity, improving quality and reducing lead times. The company is the world's largest specialist supplier of computer-aided machining software, with its PowerMILL, FeatureCAM, Partmaker and ArtCAM programs making up the most comprehensive range of CAM systems from any developer.

This broad selection allows Delcam to offer a CAM system capable of machining virtually any product, in any material on any type of equipment. Delcam also develops product design, tooling design and quality control programs. The unique Tribrid Modelling approach to design incorporates solid modelling, surface modelling and triangle modelling in a single program, enabling complete design and reverse engineering projects to be undertaken without transferring data between software.

Delcam's Powerinspect offers fast, reliable comparison of parts, prototypes and tooling against CAD data on all types of inspection equipment and even on machine tools. This versatility has made it the world's leading hardware-independent inspection software. Related programs are available for checking machine tool set-up and part location. Delcam software is used in over 80 countries worldwide by around 40,000 organisations, from large multi-nationals to small sub-contractors, in industries including aerospace, automotive, dental, engineering, footwear, medical and toolmaking.
