Virtual Sculptor VS3D / VScad3 Software by Designs Computed
Virtual Sculptor is an innovative CAD/CAM application designed for optimal performance in relief surface sculpting and 3-axis machining. Traditional CAD/CAM systems tend to bog down on the large amount of data required to represent a detailed sculpted surface. Virtual Sculptor uses an efficient internal data representation, allowing it to manipulate complex relief surfaces with ease. This has many benefits, including the ability to visualize the cutting results of proposed tool paths before any material is actually cut. The software consists of two basic interconnected parts. The main module is for virtual relief sculpting and 3-axis machining (VS3D). The auxiliary CAD module (VScad3) is a traditional CAD program which represents 3d shapes using polyline and polygon geometry.
