Introduction:

What you can create with ArtCAM is really impressive. With an incredibley easy user interface, and features that include: 2D and 3D design using reliefs, engraving, sign making, and much more. I would highly recommend this software if you are new to machining and need to get going fast, with the Express software. ArtCAM also has more advanced modules and software that will scale to your needs.

5 Key Features Of ArtCAM Express: In this demonstration we'll be looking at the top 5 features of ArtCAM Express

5

ArtCAM Express - Using the Relief Clipart Library: In this video we'll be looking at some of the powerful and versatile features of Delcam's entry-level routing and engraving package - ArtCAM Express 2011. We'll be exploring how to: use the Relief Clipart Library; Import reliefs from other locations into your model; create text; machine your relief model and V-Bit Carve.

Creating a Valentine's piece using ArtCAM Express: In this demonstration we will show you how easy it is to produce 3D designs in ArtCAM Express 2011 by combining items using the relief clipart library. It will also show how to fill vectors using a colour to make your finished part stand out by using the Vector Tools module. It will explore: Using the clipart library, Machining a 3D relief, V-Bit carving, Flood filling vectors, using colour, Saving 3D pdf's.

7

Working with 3D Clipart in ArtCAM Express: In this demonstration we will show you how easy it is to produce 3D designs in ArtCAM Express 2011 (with no modules) by combining items from the included relief clipart library of over 500 relief models. It will explore: Using the clipart library, Machining a 3D relief, V-Bit carving

ArtCAM Express 2011 - Using Modules to Create a Halloween Mobile: In this demo we'll show you how to design a fun Halloween mobile and machine it on your CNC. We'll be using some of the ArtCAM Express 2011 modules, including... Vector Layers, Bitmap Layers, Nesting, Texture Toolpath.

9

Create Vector Artwork from an Image | Bitmap to Vector: In this tutorial we demonstrate how to create vector artwork from an image imported into ArtCAM Express

10

Creating an Inlay: This tutorial shows how to create an Inlay for a sign within ArtCAM Express

11

Machining a 3D Relief: This tutorial shows how to import a 3D Relief from the "Relief Clipart Library" and then machining the part ready to send to a CNC machine.

12

Light box using the Vector Tools Module: This includes, Vector Layers. The Vector Tools (layers) module is extremely useful when creating artwork as it allows you to create individual line drawings (vectors) or sections from a design on a number of different layers.

This tutorial will show how to create a die bond light box using ArtCAM Express and machining it by selecting layers using the "Vector Tools" module.

13

Texture Toolpath Module: The Texture Toolpath can be used to add textured patterns to any design whether that is a background for a sign, used for sculptures or decorative furniture panels, embossing plates or even to add decorative aspects to your product design.

The strategy uses preset or custom parameters to create sophisticated but highly efficient cutting patterns using selected tool geometry. With this feature you can add existing textures, hand-carving effects or exotic patterns to your designs in just a few minutes. This adds enormous visual impact to your work with very little design effort or machining time.

This video demonstrates how to create a textured door panel using ArtCAM Express with the module, "Texture Toolpath"

14

Embossing Die |Smart Engraving Module: Tool for creating raised flat lettering suitable for name plates or foiling dies. This unique function not only rapidly clears away surplus material but also uses corner sharpening to create a clean crisp edge, ideal for foil stamping. Engraving effects such as Bevel In, Bevel Split, Flat with Bevel and Bevel Out can all be achieved.

This demonstration shows how to create an embossing die using the "Smart Engraving" module for ArtCAM Express

15

Raised Round Module: The ArtCAM Express Raised Round Module is ideal for foil and embossing dies with lettering as it generates engraving toolpaths directly from the vector artwork. Determining the optimum height and shape, this strategy enables you to create a tapered edge to the letter design so that there are no sharp edges that would otherwise pierce through the material. This module can also be used to as an additional method of carving out decorative text for your signage.

This demonstration shows how to create a Chocolate Mould using the "Raised Round" module for ArtCAM Express to create form using 2D vectors

16

Nesting Module | Nesting Multiple Parts:

Shapes or letters can be rotated to find the best position and fit on the sheet of material, nested within one another, for example in middle of the letter O or share a straight edge so that ArtCAM only cuts along one vector, reducing the amount of waste material even further.

You can also determine where on the sheet of material you would like to begin nesting your parts, for example the left or right hand side of the top of bottom of the sheet or along the X or Y Axis.

This demonstration will show how to nest multiple parts to minimize wastage of material using the ArtCAM Express module, "Nesting"

17

Font Creator Module | Created & Editing Fonts: If any of your designs involve working with text, you will greatly benefit from the ArtCAM Express Font Creator Module as it not only gives you the freedom to create your own unique text but also the ability to tailor any font to match the specific capabilities of your CNC machine

This demonstration will show how to edit or create fonts using the "Font Creator" module for ArtCAM Express

18

Feature Machining Module | The Shield: This module is ideal if you wish to engrave text or imagery over a curved surface, for example some text on a three dimensional sign or shield,

You can machine raised, recessed or centreline engraved features to a depth or height relative to your ArtCAM Relief Clipart or imported 3D model.

This tutorial shows how to leave "features" on 3D reliefs using the module "Feature Machining" and how to machine the whole part to send to a CNC.

19

Feature Machining Module#2 | Football: This tutorial shows how to leave "features" on 3D reliefs using the module "Feature Machining" and how to machine the whole part to send to a CNC

20

Bitmap Layers Module - Creating a logo using multiple images: With the ArtCAM Express Bitmap Layers module you can import the most common bitmap image formats, including: pdf, bmp, jpeg, tiff, gif and also gives full support to dwg, and dxf files retaining all the original layer information.

If you are importing several images these can be saved as individual bitmap layers that can be turned on and off whilst you design.

This demonstration shows how to create a logo using multiple images with the help of the module "Bitmap Layers" and creating vector artwork from the images.
