Designed specifically for the CNC and Pattern Making industries, The Logic Trace Digitizing System consisting of a digitizing tablet and Logic Trace digitizing software by The Logic Group can quickly and easily trace any outline, template, object, or part and create a DXF graphics file on your computer ready for use by any CNC or cutting software and machine.
Tracing objects and creating computer graphics files is fast and easy: 1. Place item on digitizing tablet 2. Choose whether to digitize points, lines, arcs, or circle 3. With digitizer pen trace the object 4. Repeat last 2 steps as needed 5. Save DXF file 6. Load file into CNC or Cutter software That's It!!
A typical Logic Trace Digitizing System comes with the following components: Digitizing Tablet, Pen Stylus or Cursor, Logic Trace Software
Sample Uses of Logic Trace: Metal Fabrication, Die Cutting, Custom decays and Signs Packaging and Pattern Making Custom Motor, Aircraft, and Boat Parts Embroidery and Scrap Booking And Many More...
Logic Trace System works with a variety of CNC machines Plasma Cutters, Laser Cutters, Waterjets Printers, Plotters Fabric and Cloth Cutters
Logic Trace Software can create DXF, DWG, Gcode, NC, SVG, EPS, PDF and other graphics files of the traced patterns
A Digitizing Tablet 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 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 standard accuracy of a digitizing tablet is .01" (10/1000). Divide an inch into 100 parts, the result is .01" accuracy. Larger digitizing tablets are also available in .005" (5/1000) accuracy, the higher accurcy adds $500 to the cost of the digitizer. Most clients that are working with cloth, foam, wood, or glass prefer the .01" accuracy. Clients working with metal use either the .01" or .005" accuracy. The largest digitizing tablet has an active area of 44x60", other sizes are 36x48", 24x36", 20x24", 12x18", and 12x12". Patterns larger than the digitizing tablet can be digitized in sections and then combined using the Logic Combine DXF software or in a CAD program such as Autocad.
The Logic Trace Digitizing System includes the Logic Trace Cnc Dxf software and a GTCO Calcomp Logic Tracer digitizing tablet.
The tracing software will also work with the GTCO Calcomp Drawingboard, GTCO Super L, GTCO Rollup, Numonics Accugrid, and Summagraphics digitizers.
