Carveco brings ArtCAM back to life
In order to rise from its own ashes, a Phoenix first must burn.” – Octavia Butler
ArtCAM again developed under CarveCo
On November 2018 the company CarveCo Ltd announced that it has reached an agreement to continue the development of the CAD/CAM software ArtCAM so loved by the marble workers. The new life of ArtCAM will probably continue under the new name CarveCo.

Product Launch – CarveCO beta version
A couple of days ago, January 4th, 2019 from the forum Autodesk, in the ArtCAM category I’ve found an updated directly from the CarveCo team.
The software house is close to launching the product in beta release; the new software cad/cam CarveCo is almost ready. As they write the base of the new software is quite similar to the old version of ArtCam but they are testing some libraries’ updated and additional levels of security.
The licensing system will be perpetual and without the need of any dongle.
What to do now?
We will regularly check CarveCo’s website and its socials at the moment lack of information indeed.

CarveCo cad/cam testing?
In the next days we will follow the evolution of CarveCo and as soon as a beta release will be released we will be among the first to try it and test it.
We will try CarveCo with our Amastone Next CNC machine and we will do some engravings and production tests on marble.
Many marble workers already know ArtCAM because they use it with their CNC routers. For the making of engravings, writings and reliefs ArtCAM was a software easy to use and very efficient. Certainly with its limitations when it comes to doing work such as kitchen tops, countertops, sinks, but certainly for small CNC routers for memorials, headstones engravings and art reliefs it was fine and it was a good compromise price/quality.
