All functions required to draw typical cutting
shapes such as: line, parallel line, parallel line from point, perpendicular
line, rectangle from two corners, rectangle with centre, length
and width, ellipse, circle, arc, tangent circle,
Special cutting geometries
Often not available in all other systems such
as: oblong, circular oblong, ellipse as series of arcs
Intuitive fast to use autofind function to find
the endpoint, centre, midpoint, perpendicular, tangent. This ensures
the drawings are precise with closed contours as required for CNC
Built in calculator
Save time by entering your calculation directly
when you want to enter the value.
A variety of selection tools to select single
elements, all elements, elements in window, elements cut by window,
Powerful copy functions
Rotation, mirroring, move, copy and circular
copy, all with easy spacing.
Intuitive, one click trim functions to trim to
To hatch a selected complex contour or surface
containing even complicated island or inner contours.
PROfirst can read and write AutoCAD©
DWG files keeping the structure of the drawing intact.
Layer control with layer preview
Complete layer control with previewing
of layer content, allowing filtering of information on complex
Check open contour
Shows the open parts of a contour and double
lines for easy correction before CNC processing.
To account for manufacturing
constraints on a part such as cutting or tool diameter compensation
on parts, PROfirst can offset a complex part making it smaller
or larger by a definable amount.
data directly in DXF format hence saving time because no conversion
is required for further CAM processing.
Allows quick and easy recognition of drawings
The sheet metal part can be previewed with
one mouse click.
Creates 3D file for LogiTRACE
The part can then be unfolded or used to
calculate an intersection with other parts in our unfolding
