VCarve

Innovative, Creative, 3D V-Carving Software

VCarve
What is VCarve?

VCarve allows you to create an exciting 3D carving from a simple 2D image. Routing or engraving using standard tools produces square-edged cuts of a set depth. If you want to replicate the subtlety of hand-carving for more delicate work then VCarve is an ideal and simple solution. VCarve uses a 'V'-pointed engraving tool and automatically controls the depth of cut so that engraved lines can be wide (ie., deep) to give bevelled edges or increasingly narrow (ie., shallow) to give sharp edges to corners and delicate serifs for fine font engraving.

How does VCarve Work?

The software has a number of interesting design tools of its own but, at its simplest, most schools will start by importing a vector-based graphic image - 2D Design drawings are ideal. Areas of the design to be carved deeply are then identified and edge-treatments for where ‘low’ meets ‘high’ are selected. The machined effect can then be simulated any number of times before committing to machining.

VCarve or VCarvePro?

VCarve provides a maximum machining area of 600 x 600mm and is therefore ideal for use in schools with the Roland 3D capable millers/routers. VCarvePro offers further sophisticated options and has no maximum machining area limitation, making it ideal for the TechSoft RouterCAM range.

What Can You Do with VCarve?

VCarve designs can be added to both hand made products as well as being combined with CAD/CAM.

Wood Carving
Moulds for Casting

V-Carve the negative parts of the design in jelutong or modelling wax, to create a mould. Cast stunning jewellery pieces, badges or plaques in Precious Metal Clay (PMC), pewter or resin.


Logos or Motifs on CAD/CAM Products

Refresh a tried and tested design and make project, by including VCarving as a decorative option.

Decorative Inserts in Furniture

V-Carve designs directly into wooden furniture parts or create discrete inserts for branding, personalisation or simply descorative effect.


Signage

Use VCarve to create 3D relief signs. Use the texture toolpath to create an even more interesting hand carved finish.
