With Mastercam Art, users can craft and cut 2D sketches, clip art, photos and CAD files on-screen. According to the company, the Windows-based software reduces typical problems associated with creating artwork for machining. Input ranging from a scanned pencil drawing to a fully developed CAD model, can be "sculpted" on-screen in 3D. Modifications can be made, including reverting to a previous design, by using the suite of tools. The software converts artwork into flat, machinable geometry, giving the user a basic palette from which to craft a finished model. Creating a 3D sculpture from 2D artwork is made possible by selecting elements from the flat art. The program "puffs up" the art using a cross-section the operator controls. According to the company, once the user has modeled the project, a range of cutting techniques ensures that the part comes off the machine exactly as imagined. Additionally, the software comes equipped with a classic art library of over 5,000 artistic elements.
