With the PlasmaCAM DesignEdge™ software, you can scan hand-drawn artwork or use computer files like clipart and cut them with your cnc plasma cutter easily.
The PlasmaCAM DesignEdge™ software automatically performs raster to vector conversion, cleans and smoothes the images, and prepares them to be cut on the machine. It's easy to scale the images to any size, and you can cut as many copies as you want.
You can cut a design as is, incorporate it into a larger, custom design, or just use part of the design. It's easy to add custom lettering using any True-Type font.
In only 17 minutes, this 36" x 28" horse and buggy art scene was scanned from hand-drawn art work and prepared for cutting by our CNC machine software. The scene was then cut out from 10 gauge steel in 11 minutes.
Unlike conventional CNC machines, PlasmaCAM™ machine is a complete, integrated cutting system. Traditional programming and processing steps have been eliminated and replaced with a graphic interface, where you work directly with the images you want to cut.
