Logic Trace System for CNC & CAD - Trace & Save DXF Files







Electronic Board, Pen and Software

Quickly and accurately trace parts and patterns and save vector files for CNC and CAD machines

CNC Software

Works with Plasmacam, Vectric and Vcarve Pro, Autocad, Mastercam, Rhino, Solidworks, Sheetcam, Enroute, Flashcut, Sharper CNC, and many more.

CNC Machines

Designed for Plasma Cutters, Waterjets, CNC Routers, Laser Cutters, Vinyl Cutters, Plotters, Printers, Fabric Cutters, and and all CNC Machines.

Jumbo Tracer

Connect multiple boards for tracing very large patterns. Connect two to eight boards together for tracing patterns anywhere from 5x8' to 8x24'


- The standard accuracy of the electronic board is 0.01 in (0.254mm) which is more than adequate for most applications.

- A higher accuracy board with 0.005 in (0.127mm) is also available.

Logic Trace System for CNC & CAD - Fast & Easy







Output Vector Files


Almost all CNC and CAD programs can read one of these file formats.

What Materials Can Be Traced?

- Metal, wood, plastic, cardboard, plywood, paper, fabric, glass, almost anything

- Some metals interfere with the magnetic field of the pen stylus. Usually the outside of the part can be traced, it is the inside holes that have problems. In that case trace the outside and move the holes onto paper.

Tracing Tools - Pen and Cursor

Trace an outline using the sharp tip of the pen stylus or using a cursor with magnifying glass and cross-hair.

Most Popular Sizes

The two most commonly sold sizes are 44x60" (110x150cm) and 5x8' (1.5x2.4m). We also have available smaller and larger tracing systems.

Tracing - Easy and Fast







Freehand Drawing

Trace complicated shapes simply by tracing with the pen stylus or with the 16 button cursor.

Easy Smooth Curves

Trace smooth curves with a series of points and when done the software will create a smooth curve through the points.

Lines and Arcs

Define straight lines by tracing starting and ending points, define arcs with 3 points

Circles and Shapes

Trace circles using any 3 points on the circle or tracing the center point and diameter. Trace squares and rectangles by tracing any 3 corners.

Electronic Tracing Boards - Digitizers



How a Tracing Board Works

The electronic board is a grid of wires going up and down and across with a hard formica surface. The pen stylus or cursor generates a magnetic field that is "sensed" by the board. Push a button on the pen or cursor or push down on the tip of the pen and a stream of accurate XY points are sent to the computer. The Logic Trace software then displays these points as a drawing or numbers.

Jumbo Tracers - For Large Patterns





Jumbo Tracer

Connect multiple boards for tracing very large patterns. Connect two to eight boards together for tracing patterns anywhere from 5x8' to 8x24'


After assembling a Jumbo Tracer, the boards are calibrated by tracing several points across the boards.

Jumbo Sizes

Editing Between Boards

Trace between boards, by defining alignment points, moving the pattern, realigning, and editing
