Direct Machining Control

DMC

Direct Machining Control has released new software for laser machines, DMC. DMC provides users with an easy and intuitive way to design laser fabrication recipes and control the system. Recipes can be based on 2D or 3D CAD files or created using built-in drawing and logical tools. After the recipe is designed, it is executed automatically without any use of machine code, making the whole process simple, graphical and based on ‘what you see is what you get’ principles.
