Carvings with a cnc router

Recommended Posts

Having used my cnc router for years to produce 2D and 2.5D parts for my models, I have recently thought to use the machine also to make carvings for my present project.

But the problem is that with my present CAD program I cannot make any 3D modelling. So the question is, where to find a modern, reasonably priced, easy to learn relief carving program. Some colleagues have suggested Autodesk`s ArtCam, but I consider it too expensive and perhaps already a bit aged. There must be more modern variants available.

My machine is a 3 axis one which normally should be adequate for relief carving, but if 4th axis is necessary, it would be reasonably easy and cheap to upgrade.
