New from Zund is PreCut Center, a software that facilitates cut-file preparation whether users prefer a manual or automated process.
After importing the desired shapes into Zünd PreCut Center (ZPC), the user assigns them to the corresponding recipes - basically road maps for creating cut paths based on specific parameters. The recipes can be imported or created as needed by the user. The next step entails defining materials and material parameters. The shapes are subsequently nested on the unprinted material.
In addition, ZPC lets the user integrate selected metadata. Information printed along with the job facilitates job tracking and, once cutting is complete, enables quick attribution of cut parts to corresponding orders.
In a last step, ZPC generates a cut file in .zcc format and makes it available for subsequent import into Zund Cut Center (ZCC). An option also exists for outputting files in .dxf format.
ZPC is available in two versions, Basic and Pro.
