the leading artistic design & manufacturing
software for CNC users, is now declined in specific versions to satisfy
the needs of Jewelers, Engravers, Mold and Sign makers. As a totally
integrated solution, TypeEdit v11provides powerful modules for 2D, 2.5D,
3D CAD and CAM.
The 2D graphic design Module permits you to create new designs as well
as modify imported images or drawings. Its extensive tools and wizards
allow to manipulate and to give the desired effect to your creations.
With TypeArt, the 3D artistic sculpting and engraving Module, you can create
intricate designs using intuitive design tools. A user-friendly interface
encourages you to unleash your imagination.
TypeEdit CAM Module consists of market-proven machining strategies that
provide the user with unmatched machining quality and efficiency.

Text editing addresses professional typographers’ needs and wants
It allows you to write your text onto lines and to align or move it on its baseline
in many different ways; or to place it in an envelope. The Text in Column function
allows the user
to automatically place text in completely
customized columns. All True and Open Type fonts can be used as well as special
characters, but professionals
greatly appreciate the ability to create their own fonts, save and re-apply
them since page setting is automatic. Plus, modify text parameters such as
spacing, rotation, slanting, compression, interline spacing, etc. using the
Rapido tool and automatically save and re-apply those attributes. Moldmakers
will appreciate the text mirror function to create perfect molds. Position
your text according to departing point, write vertically or automatically
arc and use the spell checker for greater security.
Easily project your design onto a 3D surface. TypeEdit v11 offers several methods
to project or map geometry. Indeed it depends on the shape of the surface whether
it is conical, cylindrical or any other shape and it also depends on the way
you want to machine the part.
Make any change at any time thanks to the construction tree! As you build your
3D piece with the TypeArt module, every step of your construction is saved.
You can modify any parameter in the historic tree and re-compute the whole
TypeArt model automatically and instantly. Reduce your creation time significantly
with this new, unique and “parametric
Plus, change and adjust the resolution of your object once it is done to save
even more time!
TypeEdit v11 offers a wide range of possibilities to add textures to your artworks,
adding value to your finished products. Create a random textures playing with
interactive parameters, apply predefined ones from a textures library, create
stunning weaving patterns or directly convert photos into 3D data: all those
possibilities to quickly and
efficiently generate decorative motifs and/or 3D textures which will allow you
to achieve unique effects on your final model.
More than displaying a real image of what your model will look like after the
machining process, the TypeArt simulation function will also allow you to automatically
retrieve the areas left un-machined regarding the tool selected. Then, creating
a finishing pass inside those areas is as easy as a mouse click and will definitely
help you to reduce machining
Prismatic Letters Add a unique sense of style to all your signs. You have the possibility to control toolpaths parameters to an extreme precision. The final effect you get on the letters depends on the thickness of the letters and the shape of the tool. A prismatic effect will yield fabulous designs; it just gives a greater visual impact and value to your job!
Machine efficiently by selecting a kind of machining to a color defined during the engraving creation. The order of the color machining can be changed (drag and drop with the mouse). The same color can appear several times in the same sequence at different moment of the machining.
The Sequence toolpath enables you to create as many toolpaths as needed but gathered
in only one. In this way you optimize the machining time and distance. Instead
of using several toolpaths with different tools that will pass numerous times
in the material, all passes are carried out cleverly in order to suppress the
useless tool displacements.
Tools are automatically ordered according to their shape and size.
