SignMate Software

All CR CNCs can run on any software that produces G-Code! This means if you already have a favorite software package that you like, it is compatible with a CR CNC router. Our technical staff will even work with your preferred software vendor to provide you a fully functioning post processor (for correctly translating your software's output to machinable G-Code).

Featuring and Including: i-Cut

i-Cut earned the reputation as the premiere solution for vision based registration in graphics finishing. Print runs from just one sheet - to hundreds or even thousands, are contour-cut in the most reliable, precise, & economical manner. The file is prepared using virtually any design software. Register marks can either be manually added in the application, or by using the ai-cut plug-in for Adobe Illustrator; or automatically added if an i-script compatible RIP is used. The file is then printed using digital or traditional means. This is where image distortion occurs, either in x, y, or in non-uniform directions.

All prints have distortion! The included i-Cut camera reads registration marks & the i-Cut software calculates the actual image offset, rotation & distortion. i-Cut produces a "best-fit" cutting file for EACH piece & runs the CAM/CNC device to produce optimal results with minimal waste. i-Cut can even decide whether the parts should be cut using the main router spindle or whether the optional Tangential Knife Head or Scoring Wheel should be used instead. The result is the complete vision solution, to produce fast, accurate & efficient graphics finishing.

iCut_Logoi-Cut allows you to efficiently produce a vast array of finished graphic products such as flat and dimensional point of purchase, flexible vinyl, adhesives, in-store displays, outdoor advertising, fleet & vehicle graphics, decal and label, and more. i-Cut offers the power of proven full non-linear distortion correction, a simple, intuitive user interface, and full prepress and RIP integration. Jobs are quickly prepared and sent to your CR CNC router without error or miscalculation. And with the many i-script compatible RIP’s only i-Cut integrates finishing from the design, printing and cutting steps.

Express for CR CNC by ArtCAM

VectorArtLogoExpress software for CR CNC by ArtCAM is also included as part of the standard SignMate package. Express is one of the most intuitive software packages available on the market. This allows a user to be trained and comfortable programming the software typically in as little as one day. With the extensive video tutorials and great documentation, it is always easy to learn exactly what a tool's function is in the program. Due to our great relationship with Delcam, a custom version of ArtCAM Express, Express for Onsrud, has been developed. Express for Onsrud is a customized solution that includes some extra functionality, such as ramping lead-ins and lead-outs, multi-drill block support, and many others, to make the machine more productive.
