The difference that no-one else can give you
3D CAD/CAM graphic software for designing and programming tubular parts
All 3D graphic CAD/CAM dedicated to tube processing
You are more open to the world
Import 3D models created using external CAD systems with a single click.
Process all formats: STEP, IGES, XT and even IFC.
Part models created with other CADs and imported in ARTUBE are transformed into native models.
It is never too late to change your mind
You can also edit, add or remove features from the imported drawing, change tube size or shape, adjust radii or thickness, without opening the original drawing file or ever exiting from ARTUBE.
Complex but not complicated tube frames
Draw the outline (wireframe) of the structure and then assign the tube dimensions. It's that simple to create the programs you need to make your tube frame and chassis design. Joints and intersections are solved by ARTUBE. You can even improve the results by inserting one of the many available interlocking joint solutions.
Hook & Slot
New “tooth” style joint - parametric and compatible with all shaped tubes - for even easier joining of two tubes. Improves coupling rigidity, maintains accurate joint position, and simplifies weld fixturing.
Choose which tubes to connect and let the system suggest an optimal solution, that you can customise later.
Save time, eliminate fixturing, gain efficiency!
Doing lots of test cuts and adjustments are thing of the past.
Just enter the features of the tube in the CAD and obtain the right bending-cut.
Your frame will be simpler and part alignment will be more accurate.
