Laser software redefined.
intuitive user guidance
Why you need the Ruby® laser software.
What does every laser user need today and in the future? A laser software that allows daily work with the laser machine to run seamlessly. A simple and quick workflow from the idea to the finished product. A platform that guarantees profitable order processing. A networked, web-based and fully digital setup. A user interface that delights.
Ruby® has all of that. For simpler, faster work with your laser. Digital to the core.
Speed up your workflow
Ruby provides graphic editing and laser control in one software. With many applications, there's no need to switch between programs, and no time-consuming printer-driver workflow.
Prepare jobs from anywhere within the same network. Work together with different roles and permissions. Client- and platform-independent.
Anybody can use a laser
Minimum training required. A user interface that guides you intuitively.
Be ready for the future
Web-based platform with an integrated cloud-based material database. Constantly being developed further for highest automation and integration opportunities.
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.
Creating graphic and text elements.
Ruby® is an advanced laser workflow software that provides, in many cases, all the graphics tools that you need to create designs, graphics, photo and text elements, preventing the need for time-consuming switching between laser software and design software – especially when making adjustments to design or laser jobs. Ruby software seamlessly works with files created in popular design software such as CorelDraw, Adobe Illustrator, and AutoCAD, as well as SVG and PDF vector formats, and non-vector formats such as .JPG, .PNG, and .BMP. When files are loaded into Ruby software, errors are automatically detected and fixed, optimizing them for the laser machine, including line thickness and colors. While Ruby® software does not replace advanced graphic software packages, it enables users to make quick adjustments to imported designs when necessary, eliminating the need to switch back and forth between different software packages to make multiple file adjustments. This significantly streamlines the design process, saving time and effort.
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.

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.

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.
