This software turns your CNC router into a photo engraving machine!


We offer a software called PhotoVCarve which changes your CNC milling machine to a photo- engraving machine. Because of a simple designed surface and a 3D preview you can aim professional results within shortest time and without programmer knowledge.

You scan a photo or use any colour or black and white picture as a jpg., pvc., gif., tif., jpeg or bmp file, open it with the software, work on the necessary parameter, control the result in the 3D preview and save it.

You can mill the pictures in almost every material. You can even engrave lithophanes (backlit 3D pictures) sharp and detailed this way.

And you can change grayscale pictures in 3D reliefs with this.

The results are amazing. Here shown 3D relief  pictures have dimensions of approx. 100x80mm. This lithophane pictures were engraved with a 0,3mm stylus in a special plastic, which we also have in stock. Time of engrave was down to approx. 45 minutes per picture.

A high resolution picture of approx. 120x80mm took about  1,5 hours. A simple colour picture served the template. Nothing has to be changed in a black and white picture. The result appears first with retral lightning.
