The laser graphic design software. For a seamless workflow.

Create graphic, photo and text elements. Adjustments can be made quickly with the integrated workflow. Switch between the "design" and "prepare" steps at any time in one software that is both, a graphics and laser program. With all graphic tools the laser user needs. Ruby® allows direct file import from pdf, svg, ai and png. These functionalities cut the time from the idea to the finished products to half of it.

Connected working. Multiple lasers, infinite number of users, one web-based platform.

Ruby® connects all your laser machines in a network. Jobs can be distributed to multiple machines from a PC or Mac. Jobs are loaded onto the laser machine's integrated storage and processed without an additional PC. Thanks to the new workflow, jobs can be prepared by one user and produced by anothter at any time and from anywhere.

A user interface that delights.

The laser software Ruby® accompanies the user from the idea to the finished product. The seamless worklfow starts with the design and continues through preparation and production. Self-explanatory. An integrated guide provides addtional tips if required. The training effort is minimal. The cloud-based material database guarantees the best laser results. The user selects the material and material effects such as deep engraving, dark engraving or kiss cut right from the start.
