Hypertherm, manufacturer of industrial cutting systems and software, today announced subscription pricing for its Design2Fab® CAD/CAM sheet metal layout software for use with manual and automated cutting applications. Rather than purchasing the software outright, as is typically required, companies and individuals seeking the ability to create complex custom fitting layouts in minutes, rather than hours, can now subscribe to Design2Fab on a monthly, annual, or three-year basis.

Monthly pricing is $79.99 (U.S. Dollars), per user. For users outside the US, the actual price will depend on local exchange rates. Subscribers have the freedom to start a subscription, add or remove users when needed, and cancel at any time. Hypertherm is currently offering a free 7-day trial subscription for anyone interested in trying Design2Fab. To learn more please visit www.hypertherm.com/design2fab.

In the past, businesses including general fabricators, and commercial and residential HVAC duct shops, often had to rely on sheet metal layout software that didn’t fully meet their needs. Technical support was often limited to self-help online. Quickly creating complex custom fitting layouts that help ensure perfect fit-up when installing parts in the field, wasn’t easily possible. However, with Design2Fab, subscribers get access to one-on-one live support from knowledgeable professionals, in addition to online resources such as video tutorials. This all contributes to increased productivity and lower operating costs.

“Design2Fab provides an excellent industry-proven solution for businesses who need to create flat pattern layouts for duct applications. The simplified job set-up allows even a beginner to the sheet metal trade to immediately start making fittings with a complete range of templates,” said Bob Tiedt, a Design2Fab sales manager. “It gives businesses the flexibility to export patterns to DXF for automated cutting, export to HPGL for printing to a plotter, or lay out patterns manually using XY or triangulation points. Also, for those looking to nest jobs, create reports and identification labels for ducts, Design2Fab is the only software offering integration to Hypertherm ProNest® nesting software.”

Hypertherm designs and manufactures industrial cutting products for use in a variety of industries such as shipbuilding, manufacturing, and automotive repair. Its product line includes cutting systems, in addition to CNC motion and height controls, CAM nesting software, robotic software and consumables. Hypertherm systems are trusted for performance and reliability that result in increased productivity and profitability for hundreds of thousands of businesses. The company’s reputation for cutting innovation dates back 50 years to 1968, with Hypertherm’s invention of water injection plasma cutting. The 100 percent associate owned company has more than 1,400 associates along with operations and partner representation worldwide.
