Files and Artwork
CAM Craft uses a PC-based CAD system to make the cutting files for the CNC routers. Ideally, we would like to receive drawings in a .dxf or a .dwg format to save on setup time.
Due to previous issues of file format other than .dxf or .dwg we have now have a few new software packages that has made ours and customer’s lives a lot easier. We can now read Vectorised AI, EPS and PDF formats and able to convert them to a DXF.
If the design is non specific on all dimensions, e.g. a rabbit figure, then a .jpeg of the sketch will work too. We will scan the image into CAD and trace over it. There may be a setup charge depending on complexity of art work.
No matter what type of CAD or graphic we generally only need a plan view drawing. All art work in any form should have at least one dimension so we can check and create the right scale factor.
If you need slots and recesses please make it clear with notes or side profiles of your requirements.
