XS Designer Software
The LasOnAll XS Designer software combines marking software, CAD editor, parameter and interface management, sequence programming and diagnostic tools all in one easy to use intuitive package,
This Windows-based marking software makes laser technology so easy to master…..
What is LasOnAll XS Designer capable of?
XS Designer enables the creation of graphic files which serve as the basis for the laser marking process, the complete laser software package consists of the following components:
USB laser control card (Ostling LazeCard); integrated into the Laser Rack
USB driver for the laser control card (Ostling LazeCard)
Control program Laser Control for setting the system parameters
Graphic editor XS designer to create projects that are sent to the laser
The marking file is created within XS Designer. With this program, vector, bitmap and photographic designs can be created. The project may contain any/all of the following components:
- Date / Time (also custom)
- Vector drawings VCT, PLT, DXF * (no binaries and depending on the version and function)
- Bitmap drawings * (BMP, JPG, GIF)
The laser control card (LazeCard) can also control up to three linear and a rotation axis.
The program has 2 different operating modes:
Work mode: Allows the marking of materials. The current (saved) data can not be changed in anyway. The program updates all active components (i.e. date and counter) automatically at start and end. Work mode can be password protected.
Edit mode: Allows the full creation and modification of Vector- (strings, barcodes, DataMatrix, CAD files, etc.) and Bitmap marking data (Windows BMP), which are transmitted to the marking system or stored on the hard disk drive.
XS Designer includes enhanced functionality to solve customer-specific problems via scripts in Visual Basic, using the “Active Script” technology.
New features of LasOnAll XS Designer 1.4:
- Enhancements in VBScript, new objects and methods
- New grouping functions and intersections of objects
- Dialog box for importing DXF * and PLT
- Improving the DXF * -Import filters
- Simplified management of I / O masks of functions “receive and transmit” and “Configuring outputs”
- New algorithm for marking bitmaps in grayscale
- Optical correction
- New Project Function Event
Insert graphics in LasOnAll XS Designer:
Two-dimensional graphics that were created with other programs (AutoCAD, Corel, Macromedia, Adobe and others) can be added to projects into XS Designer.
The following file formats can be imported:
DXF: interchange format for two-dimensional vector graphics that is commonly used by CAD programs. It is provided by most vector graphics programs.
PLT: vector format which was developed for the control of plotters. File is created either by the export filter of various vector graphics programs or by installing a HP 7475 A plotter driver on the operating system.
BMP: standard format for bitmap graphics. BMPs are generated by appropriate graphics programs, digital cameras or scanners.
DIB: Device Independent Bitmap. Similar to the BMP format. It can be generated by appropriate graphics programs, digital cameras or scanners.
JPG: One of the most common compressed bitmap formats. A converted file from BMP to JPG format has a much smaller size.
GIF: Similar to the BMP format. Generated by appropriate graphics programs, digital cameras or scanners.
VCT: Marking graphics which were created by one of the previous versions of LasOnAll XS Designer.
The imported graphic can be freely positioned in the workspace and then altered, resized and rotated to match the design to be marked.
