The graphic design software for the laser. For a seamless workflow.

With several integrated design and editing tasks, Ruby provides a seamless workflow. You can create graphic, photo and text elements and make adjustments 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. Ruby laser software allows direct file imports from pdf, svg, and png files. When importing, faulty files are automatically cleaned. These functionalities can cut the time from idea to the finished product in half.  No costs for third-party software packages.

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

Trotec Ruby connects all your laser machines in a network, locally or in the cloud, enabling users to distribute jobs to multiple machines from a PC or Mac. Jobs will be loaded onto the laser machine's integrated memory and processed without an additional PC. Thanks to the new workflow, jobs can be prepared by one user and produced by another at any time, and from anywhere. Ruby also allows for different roles and rights in user management. Complete automation of business processes is possible with the open programming interface - the Ruby API.

A user interface that delights.

The Trotec Ruby laser software accompanies the user from the idea to the finished product. The training effort is minimal. The seamless, self-explanatory workflow starts with the design and continues through preparation and production. An integrated guide provides additional tips if required. The cloud-based material database helps you improve your laser processing results. The user selects the material and material effects such as deep engraving, dark engraving or kiss cut, and Trotec Ruby provides the right material parameters right from the start.

Get jobs ready for production

Run jobs on your laser

From idea to product

All processing steps for laser users are integrated in one software. The integrated workflow guides the user step by step from the idea for a laser job to the finished product. The advantage of the split workflow: Graphic, laser-related job preparation and laser operation can be performed by different people.

Import files directly

Directly import files as pdf, ai, svg, jpg or png and optimize them automatically.

Create graphic- and text elements

Create designs, photo and text elements. With all the graphic tools the laser user needs.

Windows and MAC compatible

Platform and client independence. For all operating systems.

Control more lasers from one PC

Jobs can be distributed from one PC to several machines.

Connect the laser to the network

Connect all laser machines in a network, locally or remote.

Simplify laser parameters

Time-consuming adjustment of laser parameters is no longer necessary. Simply select material and desired material effect, e.g. dark engraving or kisscut.

Access to job data anytime from anywhere

Prepare your laser jobs from anywhere. With Ruby® you don't have to be directly at the laser machine. Ruby® can be used anywhere, whether in the network or remotely.

Full availability online and offline

Keep up-to-date with the latest online updates and work with your laser independently of the internet. Laser parameters, jobs and designs are stored locally.

Use Ruby with Speedy laser machines

Ruby can be used with all Speedy laser machines built in 2004 or later.

Connect your webshop

Connect your webshop to minimize job creation.

Share jobs, designs and laser parameters

Share jobs, designs and laser parameters with other laser users.

Seamless rotary workflow

Create, scale and rotate rotary jobs on the object. Preview in 3D and engrave infinite.

Advanced print&cut

Use registration marks to determine the position, rotation and distortion of printed materials. Detect print&cut registration marks even with lowest contrast.

Optimize cut jobs

Optimize your cut jobs for better material utilization with common line cutting.

Manage roles and user rights

Assign different roles and rights to the users.

Clipping masks

Insert Images into vector objects.

Weld, trim and intersect

Create complex shapes with weld, trim and intersect and fill them with images.
