Appendix – Nesting Vectors artcampro

Introduction. Nesting is an automatic procedure, which re-arranges the selected vectors within the first vector to use as little space as possible. This is especially useful if you have expensive material and you need to make the maximum use of it. Offsets for the tool radius and an offset between …

Engraving & Scribe Lines artcampro

Smart Engraving allows the user to input a selection of Roughing (End Mill) and Engraving (V Shaped) tools, which create a series of efficient toolpaths within the defined vector selection ultimately producing the required engraved form. Different machining parameters and tool settings can be applied to each toolpath from within …
