What is ArtCAM Pro? ArtCAM Pro is a program that lets users create or import designs for the purpose of rendering them into 3D blueprints for computer-aided manufacture (CAM). Thus, for example, the ArtCAM Pro user may begin with a scan of a sketch for a design he wants to have minted on a coin, then use ArtCAM Pro shape that into a 3D design for the purpose of actual production, and finally send the finished 3D plan to a suitable CAM device or a 3D printing machine so that a prototype of the coin can be created. The software has both 2D and 3D design tools, so users do not actually have to begin with base drawings or images made with other programs or media. The modeling process (the transformation of image designs into CAM-ready 3D designs) is carried out through a novel layer management scheme. It has 3D rendering tools for previewing designs, special utilities for embossing and other mint-related styles, a tool for sculpting 3D profiles out of facial profile images, specialized texture tools, and support for hundreds of manufacturing machines. It is also exclusively for Windows computers.

A file extension is the characters after the last dot in a file name. For example, in the file name 'winmail.dat', the file extension is 'dat'. It helps Windows select the right program to open the file. • We help you open your file We have a huge database of file extensions (file types) with detailed descriptions. We hand pick programs that we know can open or otherwise handle each specific type of file.

New to Artcam here. I downloaded the Express trial version to test it out but haven't been able to run it. I initially tried it on an off the shelf cheap laptop and as soon as I clicked on a clipart to add it to the model it crashed.
So I tried it on my good laptop, the same one I run Mastercam X5 on, and it crashed on it also. It has a core i5 quad-core CPU with 4GB RAM and Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. It has an Nvidia Quadro 880M card.
IIRC it only has 512MB dedicated RAM, maybe 1GB. If this isn't powerful enough then I can try it on my other computer. It has a core i7 quad-core with 6GB RAM. Don't remember what graphics card but it's a pretty good one. It's running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. I plan to make some signs. Is Express good enough for that or will I need Pro?
Guestimate on the cost of Pro (in the U.S.)? I looked briefly but didn't see anything. Similar Threads: • Need Help!- • Need Help!- • Problem- • Need Help!- •.
It seems odd that your PC is crasing as ArtCAM is normally very flexible and compatible when it comes to a range of PC systems. It might possibly be something as simple as switching and adjusting a setting or two inside of the ArtCAM software options page that could-will fix the issue on your PC. Id suggest a couple of things at this point: Perhaps try it on your other PC and see how it goes. If you wanted to investigate further their are 2 main places to inquire further and to try and get to the bottom of your issue: #1- Post an inquiry and the details on the ArtCAM forum and people (including ArtCAM staff) can assist there. #2 - Drop an email message to the online support email address and one of the ArtCAM tech staff will try and assist ArtCAM is a great sofwtare package with lots of room to grow and expand as your needs requirements and product requirements grow.
