New Design2Fab® 6 for sheet metal layouts

Featured Product from Hypertherm, Inc.

New Design2Fab® 6 is a major update of Hypertherm CAM’s popular sheet metal layout software for HVAC duct, mechanical, kitchen, industrial roofing, and other specialty fitting layouts.

This new version features an entirely new interface and powerful tools like an advanced modeling engine for its 3D geometric renderings, better graphics, fluid movement, and real-time updates. Other improvements include easier dimension entry, an unlimited number of zones, easy arrangement of fittings with drag and drop functionality, ProNest® nesting software integration, and more.

Engineered to dramatically reduce the time it takes to develop and lay out flat patterns, Design2Fab is known for its superb versatility. It allows users to create both HPGL and DXF output formats. They can use a plotter to print an HPGL layout for manual cutting or use a CNC cutting machine to produce fittings from the DXF files. In addition, prior to CNC cutting, users can export the DXF files to ProNest, ProNest LT or ProNest LTS nesting software for optimal material utilization.

Current Design2Fab users with an active Software Subscription can upgrade to the new version at no additional charge and continue to receive unlimited technical support, and other benefits. More information is available at
