Once your artwork is complete you can select one of ArtCAM’s powerful engraving strategies to calculate the toolpaths required for machining. One such strategy is ArtCAM’s unique ‘Smart Engraving’ function as it not only rapidly clears away surplus material but also uses corner sharpening to create a clean crisp edge for foil stamping.

The ‘Raised Round’ strategy is also extremely valuable for foil and embossing dies with lettering, as it generates toolpaths directly from the vector artwork. Determining the optimum height and shape, it creates a tapered edge to the letter design so that there are no sharp edges that would otherwise pierce through the material.

ArtCAM has a wide range of strategies for engraving

ArtCAM Pro has never limited what we can achieve with toolpaths. The limitations have become our imagination.
