Technology Update: Laser Templator v526 by LPI
LPI has released Laser Templator v526, the latest version of its custom-designed 2D measuring and templating software program for its hardware counterpart LT-2D3D.
The most notable enhancement in v526 from v521.1 released last September is with its speed. Opening and saving job files for large complex jobs is more than 30 times faster, while small- to mid-sized jobs is up to six times faster. Functions, such as panning and zooming, now operate at a higher frame rate for improved responsiveness — allowing the user to experience smoother transitions. The improvements are geared towards providing an enhanced user experience and make digital templating with the LT-2D3D even easier.
“We are constantly looking for ways to improve our products and that includes listening to our customers and the industry,” said Erik Louis, executive vice president of engineering and operations for LPI. “Last year, we added a CNC integration function to our software to be able to export files that seamlessly integrate with specific CNC brands for a true measure-to-cut experience. This new version now adds speed, which makes measuring and templating small and large jobs even more efficient.”
The Laser Templator software is designed to be user friendly and allow users to easily create and send CNC-ready files directly from the jobsite without having to possess any CAD experience. Laser Templator comes with every new LT-2D3D system. Customers currently using the software can upgrade to v526 for free by following the prompts on their tablet to download the new version. A list of all the new features and improvements to the software is also available upon download.
