ARTPath and

Auto-Carve

3D Software

 

ARTPath routing and engraving software is a simple yet powerful component of OMEGA software that converts vector graphics into Gerber router/cutter tool paths. Using an intuitive, non-CNC graphical user interface, ARTPath provides user control and creation of routing speeds and feeds, male and female tool offsets, engraving paths, multiple offsets, multiple depths, clean-outs, inlays, and more. Auto-Carve 3D is a software option for ARTPath that enables your Gerber router to create traditional hand-carved looking text and graphics.

  • OMEGA 2.6 with ARTPath drives Sabre routers faster
    Sabre routers will cut quicker when contours are processed in ARTPath in OMEGA 2.6. Cut speeds now more closely reflects the output speed set by the operator. Simply click on "Use Software Contour Logic" in the lower right corner of the Job Output dialog box. See What’s New in OMEGA 2.6 for complete instructions. More...
     
  • ARTPath now included with OMEGA upgrades and new seats
    Beginning with OMEGA 2.5, ARTPath router software can be loaded at no charge without a password.
