Laser Pointer - Software Support (A-la-carte feature)

Software support for using a laser pointer.  Includes ability for setting program zero with a laser pointer and the ability to do a dry run of a toolpath wit hthe laser pointer instead of cutting with the fabrication head.  Distance between laser pointer and fabrication head is automatically compensated for.  Does not include laser pointer. Please see FC-CAD-CM-LPS-LP to include the laser pointer.

A full suite of drawing tools avaialble

We have all of the tools including basic shapes, splines, free-form lines, champhers, fillets, etc. enabling you to draw precise engineering drawings that are ready to cut immediately.

One-Click True Shape Nesting

Our True Shape Nesting quickly arranges multiple copies of one or more shapes in a manner that minimizes material usage. It is like playing Tetris with your parts.

Auto-Generated Lead-ins and Lead-outs

There is no need to be an expert on adding lead-in and lead-outs to all of your individual part features. Our CAM software will automatically place them in optimal spots using strategies you define including the size, angle, line vs. arc, and overburn amount. If you want to make any changes to what was auto-generated, you have the ability to easily edit the strategy or placement of each lead with one simple tool.

Automatically use settings from plasma cut charts

We have worked closely with Hypertherm to integrate their plasma cut charts into our software. All you need to do is choose the material and thickness that you are cutting and the torch nozzle that you are using and FlashCut will automatically load the recommended feedrate, kerf compensation, and cut height for the cleanest, most accurate part possible.

Easily adjust the size of your workpiece

You can adjust the size of the sheet metal that you are using as your workpiece in one easy step. The correct workpiece size is paramount to correct part placement and accurate grid and true-shape nesting.

Draw typical detailed parts in a flash with our Shape Library

Our Shape Library will allow you to make typical everyday parts like gaskets, flanges, covers, etc. in an instant. Each shape can be tailored to your needs using our simple menus. Any part generated from the Shape Library can be further edited using our drawing tools.

Easily pan and zoom anywhere on the workpeice

Easily zoom in your parts, workpiece or any feature with our pan and zoom tools

Easily show direction and kerf in one click

You can view or hide the direction of each cut, the width of the cut, the toolpath and the part in one easy to use toolbar.

Fix Drawing Tool automatically detects flaws in any drawing

The Fix Drawing Tool will detect small breaks or overlaps in any drawing in one click- no matter if it was imported from a DXF file or created directly in FlashCut CAD. one click. Once detected, it will draw a circle around the flaw and give you the choice to fix it on your own, or have FlashCut CAD automatically fix it for you.
