eSoft software is a universal software for laser cutting and also for other sheet metalworking machinery – enabling you to simplify programming and production by running multiple machine tool types off this singular, powerful, software platform. For example, if you choose to bring a job previously run on your plasma table to your high-powered and efficient EAGLE Laser, the cutting program can switched with the ease of pressing a few buttons.
eSoft comes in three levels of sophistication:
eSoft Basic is a full-featured software that can keep a small to mid-sized company operating at peak efficiency. This package contains the full cutting technology to operate a laser, plasma, waterjet, or oxygen acetylene torch. This powerful software can import DXF, DWG, GEO, CDL, HPG, PLT, AAM, IGS, NC1, and CMC. It also includes a cutting simulation feature to help you cut your parts correctly, starting with the very first part.
The functionality includes:
eSoft Compact includes the features of the Basic package plus the ability to handle 3D models. Like the eSoft Basic package it contains the full cutting technology ready to operate many different types of fabrication machinery, import all of today’s common file formats, in simulated your part before cutting.
Functionality included in Compact also included in Basic that includes: CAD, SuperNesting, Quoting, and Geometry Filter.
Additional feature included in Professional but NOT in Compact:
eSoft Professional is the most powerful package available. It includes all features of eSoft Basic and Compact, but then includes a production in planning module. When you have a lot of work for your Eagle laser, planning and tracking production for high-volume jobs and one offs can consume a lot of resources and cause production errors.
eSoft Professional delivers full control of production planning, work orders, and shipment. It is a professional tool that improves performance of work through your company to enable you to serve your customers better.
For maximum convenience, you need only purchase the number of licenses that reflect the maximum number of people that will be using the software simultaneously. If eight people might use the software, but only two will use it at one time, simply purchase two licenses. These are called Floating Licenses.
Additional post processor
Additional post processors are available to operate plasmas, water jets, punching machines, are other fabrication equipment with this software. These other machines can be operated using the same licenses.
