Output

The different options for processing the output of your manufacturing files, and how to set them up. Polyboard's workshop document includes the cut list, plans and a cost and material usage report. The software also comes with a label printing feature, and a powerful range of post processors to output the files for your CNC machine. In addition, we cover the integrations with our cutting and nesting optimisation software OptiCut and OptiNest, and integrations with selected CAM software.
