SoftBurn is a CNC Plate Burner Software that Scans virtually any Connection Material sheet or P sheet of plates detailed for fabrication. Soft Burn will scan (read) these drawings of plates, and create full scale DXF or DSTV files for the CNC plate burner. These DXF and DSTV files can then be read in by the CNC plate burning software completely eliminating the need to program the plates manually in the shop.
Autocad Drawings – Soft Burn will read virtually any DWG or DXF file, typically created by Autocad or other software packages as input. The Connection Material drawing, or P sheet, can consist from one to any number of plates, but should just be connection material, not a full shop drawing of a Column or Beam. The plates on these drawings have to be drawn to some scale (example, 1 inch scale), and each plate can be drawn to a different scale if needed.
