Points to note when designing a ArtCAM model for 3D manufacture:
• Model depth should not generally exceed 20 – 30mm as this is the maximum that the standard tooling on the CNC router / miller can accommodate
• Very fine detail will increase machining time, and may not be achievable with standard tooling available.
When you have completed your ArtCAM Pro model, it should be saved as an .art file in case you need to work on it again in ArtCAM.
You will now need to convert your model to a file format that the CNC machines will understand – in this case a .stl (or
