"I am amazed by its simplicity, Logic Trace can do the job in half the time, is cost effective, and increases productivity. I was digitizing patterns within an hour of installing the software. I would highly recommend this product as it is user friendly, very reasonably priced and completes its task with precision. Congratulations on a great product." Manny Ornelas
A Digitizing Board is an electrical-magnetic board and pointer (pen or cursor) that can send highly accurate XY points to a computer program. The board is about an inch thick, contains an electrical grid underneath with a hard Formica surface. The digitizer's pen or cursor (mouse-like device with magnifying glass and crosshair) creates a magnetic field which is "sensed" by the electrical grid in the board. Press the tip of the pen or push a button on the cursor and a highly accurate XY point, representing this location, is sent to the computer through a USB connection. The Logic Trace software then turns those points or stream of points into a DXF file. Most Logic Trace clients prefer using the pen stylus to trace around the edge of a part or pattern.
The pen stylus does not need to be touching the board, the board can sense the tip of the pen almost an inch above the surface without losing accuracy. Digitize through paper, plastic, cardboard, glass.

Does it really work? Yes! Accurately digitize a part or pattern in a few minutes. We have been selling the product for over ten years and have over 1000 companies joyfully using the product. Many companies have boards in multiple locations.
Can it digitize templates drawn on paper and cardboard or does the pen/cursor have to touch the board? Short answer, it can digitize through paper, cardboard, and other materials. Long answer. The board had an electrical grid with a Formica surface, the pen stylus generates a magnetic field which when placed within an inch of the board the board can "sense" exactly where the tip is. We can digitize patterns drawn on paper, cardboard or anything.
What size boards are available? The most common size boards sold are 44x60 inches or a 5x8' Jumbo. Smaller boards include 36x48, 24x36, 20x24, 12x18, and 12x12 inches. Larger Jumbos include 5'x12', 5'x16', 10'x11' and larger.
Can you digitize cloth patterns? Yes of course, place the pattern on the digitizing surface and trace the cloth pattern. The pattern can be attached to the board either using tape or pinning the pattern to a mat placed on the board.
Do you have a demo program? The best way to determine if this will work for you in to use one in your office and try it with your patterns and your apparel, fabric or pattern software and hardware. Buy one and we offer a complete 60-day money back guaranty. Try it and if it doesn't work we will arrange shipping and provide a full refund. Returns rarely happen.
Can I start with a 44x60 now and upgrade to a 5x8' Jumbo later? Yes, buy one 44x60 board now and then buy another board later to make a Jumbo Tracer.
Is the board durable? Yes, it has a hard surface and lasts between 20 and 30 years. It can handle heavy weight, several hundred pounds, care should be taken to not drop anything on it or puncture the board. It can handle dirty shop environments. The surface can easily be cleaned using a damp cloth.
Left the best question for last. How accurate is the pen stylus tracing along a part? The boards come in two accuracies either 0.01" (hundredth of an inch, 10 mil) or 0.005" (5 thousandth 5 mil) and the pen stylus has a sharp plastic tip like a sharpened pencil. Because the pen generates a magnetic field, the board knows exactly where the tip is. Our customers tell us the traced patterns are within the accuracy of the board - .01" or 0.005". We also have a check size feature where two points are digitized on the part and the program automatically resizes the dxf file.
