PartWorks is a CAD/CAM program that will get you started quickly designing for CNC cutting and machining. This 2.5D design system has a highly acclaimed interface that makes it easy to get your ideas and designs ready for your ShopBot to cut.
In addition to doing great cutting of 2D parts, PartWorks has excellent capabilities for 3D V-Carving (machining that gives letters and shapes a chiseled look; also referred to as Intaglio or 3D Engrave). It allows anyone with a ShopBot CNC tool to quickly and easily incorporate beautiful, decorative carved designs into their own products.
PartWorks comes with the ability to V-carve any fonts on your computer as well as closed shapes. It also includes advanced machining strategies for large areas and difficult to machine patterns.
