Minimum PC system requirements for installation and operation:

As a graphic design software for the laser machine, Ruby® guarantees a seamless workflow.

Create designs, graphics, photo and text elements. You can quickly make adjustments with the integrated workflow. You can switch between the “design” and “prepare” steps at any time in the Ruby® software that is both a graphics and a laser program. With all the graphics tools that laser users need. These functionalities halve the time taken from the idea to the finished product.

Work independently. Multiple users on multiple machines.

Ruby® connects all your laser machines in one network. You can distribute jobs across multiple machines from a PC or Mac. Jobs are loaded onto the integrated memory of the Trotec Run on Ruby® laser machines and processed without an additional PC. Thanks to the new workflow, jobs can be prepared by one user and produced by another, anywhere and at any time within the same network.

The user interface will delight you.

The Ruby® laser software accompanies the user from the idea to the finished product. The seamless workflow starts with the design and continues from preparation to production. Self-explanatory. Minimal training is required. The cloud-based material database guarantees the best laser results right away. The user selects the material and material effect such as deep engraving, dark engraving or kiss cut.

From the idea to the product

All processing steps for laser users are integrated in one software. The workflow leads you step by step from the idea of a laser job to the finished end product. The advantage of the shared workflow: Graphic work, laser-related job preparation and laser operation can be carried out by different people.

Minimum PC system requirements for installation and operation:

Creating graphic and text elements.

Create designs, graphics, photo and text elements directly in Ruby®. No time-consuming switching between laser software and design software – especially when making adjustments to design or laser jobs. With all the graphics tools that laser users need.

software design functions

No hairlines, no RGB color code, no more configuring the sheet size.

You can import files such as pdf, svg, png, jpg, cdr or ai directly in Ruby® without a printer driver. The tedious work step of printing out laser jobs from the graphics program is omitted. When files are loaded, errors are automatically optimized for the laser machine.

Mac, Tablet, PC

Create your laser jobs on a Mac, work through them on a PC in your production department and check your laser progress on a tablet while on the go. Ruby® is platform- and client-independent – be it Windows, Linux or Mac. For all operating systems.

platform clients and operating systems

Access anytime and anywhere.

Prepare your laser jobs from anywhere within the same network. Whether creating architectural model drawings remotely, cutting jobs in the graphic prepress office or last-minute customer changes before production: with Ruby® you don’t need to be directly at the laser machine. Ruby® can be used anywhere within the same network.

Multiple users

You can work together as a team with different roles and permissions. For example, operators can only adjust laser parameters for the job but not overwrite the saved material database. Graphics prepress and laser production work together seamlessly. Multiple users – 1 laser machine.

More features of our Ruby® laser software


Import files directly
You can import files such as pdf, svg, png, jpg, cdr or ai directly in Ruby® without a printer driver. When files are loaded, errors are automatically optimized for the laser machine.

Control multiple laser machines from one PC
You can distribute jobs across multiple machines from a PC.

Connect the laser machine to the network
Connect all laser machines to one network and access them from anywhere within this network.

Assign material effects
There is no need for the time-consuming setting of laser parameters. You can simply select the material and desired material effect, such as dark engraving or kiss cut.

Access to job data anytime and anywhere
Prepare your laser jobs from anywhere within the same network. With Ruby® you don’t need to be directly at the laser machine.

Full online and offline availability
Stay up to date with online updates and work with your laser machine independently of the internet. Laser parameters, jobs and designs are stored locally.

Compatible with all Speedy laser machines
You can use Ruby® with all Trotec Speedy lasers and the Trotec SP500 manufactured since 2004.

Optimize cutting jobs
Optimize your cutting jobs for better material utilization by skipping overlapping cut lines. Vectors can be nested directly in Ruby®.

Share jobs, designs and laser parameters
You can share jobs, designs and laser parameters with other laser users.

Smooth workflow for rotary engraving
Create, scale and turn rotation jobs on the object. Preview in 3D and engrave infinitely. Place more than one graphic on exact positions on the object.

Extended Print & Cut function
You can use registration marks to determine the position, rotation and distortion of printed materials. Recognize Print & Cut registration marks even with the lowest contrast.

Bitmap tracing
Convert bitmaps like logos into vectors. Scale to any size without loss of quality. Quickly create cut lines for designs and enhance productivity in laser processing.

Advanced Array function
Create and arrange multiple copies of designs in a job. Define total number of copies and how to arrange them. Fill up the entire workbench with one click.

Import profiles
Define material, position of designs, whether designs should still be transformed and whether a rotary is used for profiles. Importing a file to a saved profile, it is immediately sent to the production queue with the defined settings.

Virtual job positioning in Ruby®
Align an existing laser job live in Ruby® directly to the workpiece. Size, rotation, and position. No need for any manual measuring or positioning.

Cutting screens
Clip images with vector objects.

Merging, cropping and intersection
You can use the “Merge”, “Crop” and “Intersection” tools to create complex shapes.

Accelerate file import
You can save files in “Hot Folders” for automatic import. This accelerates the file import.

Quick start
Get started quickly with the software using the detailed documentation in the help section and online tutorials.
