The Layout Designer manages all functions necessary for generating a CNC program or nest (straight cutting). Oxy-fuel, plasma, laser, and marking processes are supported. A wide array of data is securely stored in a SQL database for instant recall that helps streamline your workflow. Programming can begin by importing a DXF/DWG file through an import interface that features a graphical preview and automatic cutting tool assignments. To create geometry from scratch, a fully integrated CAD program is available for 2D part construction. Numerous standard features are included for part manipulation, including common-line cutting, cutting bridges, corner loops, pre-piercing, and optimizing small holes.
