Laser Cutting Software
The Cutting Composer Software is the ideal accompaniment to our FB series of Laser Cutting Machines. It employs a radical new approach to output control which ensures that maximum productivity can be achieved from the FB Laser system.
The Cutting Composer allows a wide selection of Vector formats to be imported or sent directly into Ethos form Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator. Alternatively vector files can be created in the software using the many automatic drawing tools available. Access is also allowed to any True Type fonts that are loaded.
Material effect tools are available that can be used to assign specific cutting information to an outline prior to cutting, resulting in an accurate cut each time.
The powerful Costings feature enables cutting estimates to be calculated for a design. This tool will generate the set up cost, material cost, running cost per hour and will also calculate the material usage for the number of copies entered.
The Cutting Composer system also has a fully integrated database facility. This allows designs to be stored and retrieved via design name, customer, category, reference, description or even keywords that can be assigned to each design.
The Cutting Composer software comes as standard with all CadCam FB Laser Cutters.
Optical Recognition Software is available for Opto Cut machines. Our sophisticated software uses a camera to detect registration marks, cutting with compensation for fabric stretch and distortion.
