  • Advanced Code Writer and Shape Writer for creating complex patterns
  • DXF file import to produce scalable G-code for quick resizing and/or arraying of your design
  • G-code export to DXF format for efficient use in CAD or illustration software
  • Dynamic graphic plot to screen for real-time viewing of the tool path
  • TrueType font to G-code converter allows you to scale/frame text as desired
  • Built-in functions for point-and-click programming of common metalwork shapes
  • Nested-array code building for easy duplication of parts in sheet material
  • Offline mode for application development anywhere – no motors required
  • Dynamic jog and teach to rapidly record points to the G-code program
  • In-path jog correction allows temporary move adjustment and then resets and continues
