XFCut Software Releases All-New Vinyl Cutting Plug-in for CorelDRAW & Illustrator
XFCut Software, Seattle, has announced the release of XFCut 6, a major upgrade to its vinyl cutting desktop software plug-in for Windows and Mac OS X.
For the very first time, XFCut is now available for CorelDRAW and Adobe Illustrator. With intuitive user interface, advanced sign tools and one-click options, XFCut 6 vinyl cutting plug-in will make sign design and cutting tasks a pleasure while increasing quality and productivity, according to the company.
XFCut allows users to automatically add registration marks into their designs, create contour for printing and cutting jobs, create cutting data, and output jobs directly from Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw to their vinyl cutter and cutting plotter, eliminating the need to export/import files between design and production applications.
XFCut supports almost all common vinyl cutters and cutting plotters from various manufacturers, including Graphtec; Roland; Mimaki; Secabo; USCutter; Yinghe; Liyu; Summa; Mutoh; Vicsign; Ioline and others.
“We are very excited about the release of XFCut V6,” says David Kinney, vice president of sales and marketing at XFCut Software. “The features included in it were specifically developed based on feedback from our major manufacturers, distributors as well as key customers. For example, simple and straightforward print-to-cut workflows, adding shadow layers, double-head support for specific cutting machines, etc.”
