3D CAD/CAM for Lasertube
ArTube: best of tube
CAD: draw with unprecedented computing power
The fully parametric design environment and a rich library of features give you total control of your part or frame. The extraordinary variety of functions, combined with a simple and intuitive interface, will make your design experience unique.
Beyond importing 3D files
With ArTube, not only can you create a part with absolute precision, but you can make changes and improvements to the imported elements as if the part had been designed directly in the software.
Managing frames and complex structures has never been so simple
Import your frame, modify its geometry and structure as you like, take advantage of the technological options of the Assembler package. With ArTube, you can re-engineer your frame and optimize the work cycle.
Open to the structural world
Import IFC files of your structural design with absolute accuracy, simplify the machining of large steel profiles, optimize the design of individual components and assemblies. This is due to the adaptability of structural projects in ArTube.
Manage special sections as if they were standard
With the fully parametric features of ArTube, you can manipulate, modify, correct and even replace sections of a part in just a few steps, speeding up and simplifying your processes considerably. With ArTube, you can easily manage all sections, even those you create yourself.
CAM: get the best from cutting technology
The integration between software and machinery will allow you to carry out the part program precisely and accurately. ArTube will select the technological database for you and check the feasibility of the cut, while determining the most suitable solution.
Multi-machine part program
Create a single project and cut on different BLM GROUP machines.
The part program will be automatically interpreted and recognized, allowing you to better manage your work flow and optimize your production.
Put your pieces together like Lego blocks. Generate patterns in ArTube and replicate patterns in Composer, easily defining geometric relationships and repetition rules. You can generate complex objects either through the user-friendly graphical interface or automatically directly from your ERP!
Drag and drop the 3D files into your folders and get the part program automatically. With Automator, programming is no longer a concern. The software does the work autonomously according to your preferences. The best solution to guarantee automation, efficiency, and flexibility!
ArTube is integrated with SolidWorks for designing single parts and tubular frames. Call up the calculation libraries of ArTube directly from Solidworks to automatically generate your part program, a great saving of time and energy.
ArTube advanced features
2D or 3D cutting:
choose the best technology for your job
Contact part marking
ArTube allows you to mark the tube with the profiles of the parts you need to weld or overlap by contact.
In this way you will simplify and optimize subsequent processing steps.
