The release of version 11 includes lots of new features including; multi sheet support for easy management of multi material projects, spell checking, enhanced post processor management, whole line text kerning and much more!

MULTI SHEET SUPPORT
Enables you to organize your work through the new sheet management tab. Each sheet can become its own project, making it an ideal solution when you are working on projects with multiple materials.

RESIZE VECTORS INDIVIDUALLY
We’ve introduced an option in the set size tool to allow you to resize vectors within a selection on an individual basis allowing you to resize multiple vectors to a value or percentage.

SPELL CHECKER
In various text entry fields spelling errors will now be underlined in red. You can locate the correct spelling from the right click menu to automatically replace the incorrect word.

SWAP SIDES IN TWO SIDED JOBS
When working in a two sided project you can now take advantage of the new option to swap sides from the edit menu, where the software will swap over all of the content that is on one side to the other.

ONLINE POST PROCESSOR & MACHINE MANAGEMENT
From V11 it will be possible to add and configure different machines. Each machine can have a set of post-processors defined, and a separate tool database, so that machine settings, post-processors, and tool feeds and speeds can be kept in sync.

TEXT KERNING - WHOLE LINE
The edit text spacing tool has been enhanced so that you can now adjust the spacing between all characters on a line in one go.

POCKET REST MACHINING TIME
When using the pocket toolpath, the detection of previously removed material has been significantly improved. If an area of material has already been cut by a larger tool that area should be skipped with subsequent tools resulting in faster machining times when multi-tool pocketing.

UNDO POLYLINE & DRAW CURVE
When creating vectors using the polyline and draw curve tool you can take advantage of the undo shortcut to be able to easily undo the last span.

DELETE EMPTY LAYERS
It is now possible to delete multiple layers from the right click menu within the layers menu.

LASER MODULE – ADD ON
The laser cut & fill toolpath has seen improvements to the hatch fill option, when selecting multiple vectors in your job to hatch fill, you can now specify to 'fill together' or 'fill regionally'. When using the fill together option the laser head will fill out selected regions in one motion, in some cases this would result in faster machining times as the laser head doesn't need to slow down on a per region basis. The 'fill regionally' option will fill in each region before moving on to the next.

We've also added the ability to specify whether you want to outline your hatch fill too, so now you can create hatching that would simulate shaded areas without the solid outline.

Everyone running Cut2D V10+ on a computer with internet access will see an update notification in the top right-hand corner of its main window. Simply click on the notification link, log in to your V&Co account and checkout the latest V11 features.

If you run Cut2D on a computer without internet access, you can still access your account and download version 11 from any other internet enabled computer by visiting the V&Co site directly using your web browser.

Please note: V11 is a complete installation that will install alongside and independently of your existing software. Once you've installed V11, your previous version will still be available so make sure you are running the latest version by checking the text in the main window title bar (top-left). As soon as you are happy with your update, you can go ahead and uninstall your previous version.
