To use the Sculptor program in conjunction with the CarveWright Designer software version 3.101 is required.

Anyone, even non-CW end users, can use the software as a stand alone and export as an STL or OBJ file format. CW owners that do not have Designer 3 upgrade, but do have the STL importer can then import the STL file created in Pattern Sculptor.

The Sculptor program allows the user to edit or create 3D projects for a number of different machines. For a more detailed explanation of each tool please refer to the manual.

Yes, the Sculptor program can be used without purchase. However the save feature will be disabled until purchase and licensed.

No, the Sculptor program does not include any files for import, however you can use the BASIC patterns after you have made them into new patterns using the MAKE PATTERN feature.

Select a pattern from the BASIC LIBRARY. Put it in a GROUP by itself. Right-click and select MAKE PATTERN. Rename the pattern and save it into your FAVORITES LIBRARY.

Any pattern created in the designer software can be imported by the creator into the Sculptor program. Additionally, any of the BASIC LIBRARY patterns in the CarveWright Project Designer that have been incorporated into new patterns can be imported, as well.

No, only patterns created on the account that Sculptor is authorized to can be imported.

Yes, .ptn files created or edited with Sculptor can be sold through the Pattern Depot.

Provided the pattern is in a format the person is able to work with (.ptn for CarveWright users) then they will be able to use the pattern.

Sculptor will cost $199.99 for a two seat license.

Licensing Pattern Sculptor is a little different than other add-on software in that it uses a TOKEN, which will give you an activation code. See Installation & Registration Instructions HERE.
