Style A - Regular / RaisedThis style is designed to be machined and then cut out. It can then be used as an appliqué or as a product in its own right. If you use 3D design software (ex. ArtCAM Pro, EnRoute Pro, Rhino etc.) then this style is the best version to use as a component in a more complex layout. This is also the best format to use for the CarveWright/CompuCarve system.
Style B - DishThis style has the 3D model recessed on a dished shape which is completely below the surrounding area of the part. This is designed to be cut into a flat surface to add 3D decoration into the part.
C - Recess / Hand Carved EdgeThis style is completely recessed below the main surface so it can be carved into a flat piece of material. The edge of this style has a hand carved effect which works very well when machined into wood.
Free 3D Viewer FileDownload a free file to allow you to get a virtual 3D preview of this model. This model can be viewed in our Free Viewer Software or in Vector Art 3D Machinist.
Free Vector Outline (EPS)Download a free outline of the boundary of this model and style. This outline can be used in 2D design software to layout a project to include a space for the 3D file or to trim the 3D models in various CAD software (ex. Rhino). It can also be used (if carefully sized to match) to create cutout passes or machining boundaries in your CAM software.
ArtCAM Relief ModelRLF (Relief) files are compatible with all versions of ArtCAM Pro© software from Delcam PLC. The files can be used as finished 3D parts or as components in more complex relief designs. The Relief files can be loaded using the Relief Paste option within the software. This allows them to be positioned, oriented and scaled to your requirements.
STL ModelSTL is a 3D triangulated mesh, they are compatible with many software packages. EnRoute Pro©, Rhino©, MeshCAM©, DeskProto©, and MillWizard© have all been tested and are compatible with Vector Art 3D STL models. Many other software packages can also use this file type as well. If you want to use this format you should check with your software company to see how they support the STL format.
V3M - for Aspire, Cut3D, PartWorks 3D and VA3D MachinistV3M files are compatible with Vector Art 3D Machinist© and also Cut3D© software. Vector Art 3D Machinist is a free software package which you can access from this page: Download Vector Art 3D Machinist. Cut3D has additional features and can be purchased online at http://www.vectorart3d.com/cut3d/
