ArtCAM comes with a range of tools to help you prevent machining issues. Tools such as the vector doctor can clean up any artwork containing loops or open vectors.

To avoid creating 3D designs that will overstretch your material, leading to tears or splits, ArtCAM’s Relief Analysis tool warns you of potential problem areas, before you commit to cutting a die. These areas can then be smoothed out to avoid many of the common issues relating to mould or embossing tool design.

ArtCAM’s ‘Vector Doctor’ is extremely useful. It not only allows you to see vectors that could cause machining issues but it automatically fixes them, saving so much heartache, especially when some jobs we receive have up to 30,000 vectors!
