Type3, part of the Gravotech group, have released TYPE EDIT V12, the latest version of the leading CAD/CAM software for industrial and artistic modeling; design; and engraving and cutting, which is dedicated to NC machines.
TYPE EDIT V12 introduces a 'fresh new modern' interface; new features in 2D, 3D and machining; new import filters; easier scripting possibilities; and offers increased 'efficiency and creativity' to all its users.
The new Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) groups the main features of TYPE EDIT, the ones users use most often so that they are always visible and accessible. The QAT is
common to all tabs but can be personalised.
Each user can create its own work environment, with its own tabs and tools and can create different environments depending on the job.
Regarding 2D and 2.5D design tools, it offers new functions and possibilities. But the research and development team also worked on enhancing existing features. Scripts, for example, are an automatic way to link a series of operations determined by the user and executed by TYPE EDIT features. They help users automate a series of operations they regularly do for a specific job, which speeds up the process and reduces errors.
The new LED feature has been developed specifically for the sign industry, to answer the growing demand for LED (light-emitting diode) layouts, according to the company. TYPE EDIT V12 allows the easy creation of a LED job that can be used either for cost estimates or manufacture. Reports, tools and new preview functions also help professionals make the most of powerful functionalities both in CAD and in CAM, for 'higher accuracy and speed'.
