Precision Manufacturing Made Easy


The advanced manufacturing tools within Carveco software aid in preparing your designs for a variety of precision manufacturing methods. From routing wood, creating molds or press tools, laser cutting, engraving hard-wearing metals for production lines, or simply nesting your designs to achieve the minimum amount of material waste, Carveco affords the necessary control to ensure your designs can be manufactured to your exact specifications.

Key Features

Relief analysis tools in Carveco

Relief Analysis

Carveco software includes relief-analysis tools which overlay colour information indicating both heights and gradients across your design. This is particularly beneficial in the creating of foiling and embossing dies, where height or angle thresholds are critical to the manufacturing process.

Carveco Tool Database

Tool Database

Use the fully editable Tool Database to manage your cutting tools and their associated parameters. Select the appropriate tool for your material type, or add your own specialized cutting bits to suit your tooling requirements.

Rotary machining of a corbel

Multi-Axis Machining

Your designs can be machined using 3-axis, or rotary 4-axis with automatic support for tool changing and rotary index moves. Alternatively, export a triangle or quadrangle mesh for use in additional manufacturing environments or alternative CAD/CAM programs.

Machining simulation controls in Carveco

Machining Simulation

Carveco’s machining simulation allows you to preview the results of your tooling choices before committing time or sacrificing materials. Choose to simulate the entire design or a specific area of your model using the tools you’ve chosen, and render the results in a variety of realistic materials.

Toolpath Panelling

Toolpath Panelling

Produce designs beyond the constraints of your CNC bed or stock material by machining your design in calculated sections. Reposition your material as you work, or reassemble your cut sections at the end.

Projects & Assemblies

Carveco’s projects and assembly modelling tools enable you to build a complete 3D model of your work by combining imported 3D models and reliefs. Full positional controls let you easily orientate and position all elements prior to production.

Complete Toolpath Control

Carveco’s toolpath operations have been designed for tool room efficiency. See exactly how long your designs will take to machine with the Toolpath Summary. For repeat machining, save-out frequently used tool selections and strategies as a Toolpath Template. Transform, Copy and Merge your toolpaths together to streamline your production process.
