BobCAD-CAM has released the new V25 BobART PRO software module. The release comes as an upgrade to their existing BobART artistic CAD/CAM software module. The new BobART PRO upgrade provides new functionality for anyone that needs to turn photos, bitmap type images or created drawings into vectorized geometry or complete embossed models. Then the embossed model or profile geometry can be machined in the CAD/CAM software.
The BobART PRO software is designed for CNC milling, routing, waterjet, plasma, burning and laser machining. New BobART PRO artistic features include wrapping embossed models, the ability to create an embossed model from an STL file component, a save to component STL file feature, removing non-embossed areas from a project, the ability to create and use custom cross sections when creating embossed models, and 64 vectorization color levels.
The new "emboss from component" feature allows the user to bring in multiple STL files and use them as component parts to a job. Then, other functions such as mirroring, rotating and scaling can be used on these components to further customize the embossed model.
