2. Build a 3D Model

Quickly create a full 3D sculpture and watch Mastercam Art “puff up” the artwork using a cross section you control. Easily modify the model by eye to make sure it’s exactly what you want. Test a variety of dramatically different looks simply by choosing various application styles for each shape and regenerating the model to achieve your desired results.


3. Create a Toolpath & Machine It On-Screen

Mastercam Art’s specialized toolpaths are fast, reliable, and easily modified, letting you quickly sample a variety of cutting techniques for the perfect result. Watch as your part is cut on screen with Mastercam’s toolpath verification. When finished, you can inspect the piece for surface finish and make sure it’s exactly what you want before it goes on the machine.
