signs, but also stunning 3D signage thanks to incorporating 3D modelling functionality from its big brother software, ArtCAM Pro. With ArtCAM Insignia, sign-makers can simply double-click on


a specific colour of a bitmap image or a selected vector and instantly create a 3D shape to the sign makers preferred shape profile, angle and height. This can also be combined with any 3D relief that has already been created. Alternatively they can select a number of open vectors to


represent the edges and cross sections of their 3D relief to create stunning 3D sweep shapes. Blemishes from imported 3D models or adjoining areas can then be smoothed out or further embellishments added, such as textures, for sign backgrounds or face profiles, ideal for memorial plaques. www.artcam.com
