SAi further enhances EnRoute software

SAi, a leading provider of software solutions for the sign, digital printing and CNC machining industries, has announced a significant upgrade to its flagship EnRoute CAD/CAM software. 

EnRoute 6.1 meets the various needs and budgets of users across multiple industries and is accessible to existing subscribers of EnRoute software.

It includes half a dozen new efficiency-enhancing tools to boost CNC routing capabilities for CNC woodworking, signmaking and millworking, which span improved previewing options, comprehensive job statistics and greater cutting control.

They include the newly introduced Backplot tool, which simultaneously generates four preview angles and contains detailed cut statistics. It now also incorporates colour code for the text in the file, thus making it easier to identify what is included in the output file.

Also included is the Group Order function, which enables subscribers to not only select the order in which they want the objects to be cut, but also saves this instruction to a group that can be copied, enabling users to dramatically reduce their design time and maximise throughput.

 Another new function is Job Statistics, which delivers improved information of cutting time. By providing realistic production times and job estimates, users can optimise throughput.

Finally, with the Order by Line option, users can draw a simple line on the screen and quickly select the order of the parts to be cut, providing them with superior cutting control.

In addition, EnRoute 6.1 subscriptions include new and useful time-saving features. Among these is a new Hot Folder option that ensures that once a part is outputted from EnRoute 6.1, it is automatically saved in a predefined (hot) folder created by the user, ready to be cut. This reduces the time required to save each part and decreases the risk of manual errors. Also, introduced to create toolpaths for cutting complex geometries, is the new Drag Knife tool, which uses a motion-controlled knife that dictates the direction of the blade. This provides new and advanced functionalities to users of entry-level CNC machines without the large capital investment of a premium cutter.

SAi’s many different options enable users to access the exact productivity and design tools required for their needs. For those seeking a comprehensive design-to-output workflow, EnRoute Complete comprises the full spectrum of tools. EnRoute Fabrication offers a haul of tools tailored to users operating plasma, waterjet and laser CNC machines within the metal fabrication industry, while EnRoute Designer provides users with access to standard production tools at an entry-level price.

The ability for CNC users to purchase EnRoute software via monthly subscription offers greater flexibility and cost control to their businesses and ensures that they always have the most up-to-date versions.
