SA International (SAi) has unveiled the latest release for EnRoute Software – Version 5 at the ISA International Sign Expo.
"Version 5 takes CAD/CAM software to the next level with a set of industry-specific tools designed for both creativity and productivity," says John Albano, Marketing and Sales Director.
EnRoute Software, best known for its Rapid Texturing and 3D engraving capabilities, has added to its arsenal of creative tools making the design process easier and faster for sign makers.
"We've added capabilities to EnRoute 5 that will make your sign shop money," says Albano. "For example, the new Noise Distortion tool gives signs a hand-carved effect that customers love and will pay top dollar to get."
EnRoute 5 has an expanded Advanced Nesting Suite to help make the most of your material and your time.
"Traditionally CAD/CAM software required the user to keep track of sheet remnants manually, and then to position parts in these sheet remnants one at a time," explains EJ Nodurft, EnRoute Product Director. "Now when you nest, EnRoute 5 will automatically identify the sheet remnant and create a separate contour for the remnant that you save. When it comes time for the next job, EnRoute will utilize the remnant contour as your plate, and then use one of its five nesting algorithms to fit parts into every nook and cranny."
"In developing EnRoute 5, we focused on adding tools that would lower production costs for our customers," says Nodurft. "We've achieved that goal."
