Delcam has scheduled a series of webinar demonstrations of the Express and Insignia versions of its ArtCAM range of artistic CADCAM software.
Unlike most other CADCAM systems, the ArtCAM range is aimed at artisans and craftspeople rather than engineers, and requires little knowledge of engineering or computing. It has been particularly successful in the sign making, woodworking and engraving industries. In these areas and in other artistic applications, ArtCAM software allows users to increase productivity, improve quality and deliver new designs more rapidly than with traditional methods, by combining their craft skills and creativity with the power and precision of computer-aided manufacturing.
