Software Designed Expressly For the Plasma Flame Cutting Industry
This Dynatorch software is designed to exploit the many technological advantages only available from Dynatorch servo motors. It is equally at home being used by the user new to CNC cutting hardware or the seasoned veteran needing advanced features.Unlike other vendors in this market, Dynatorch software is developed in house. We spent four years developing and beta testing our software prior to selling the first system. It is designed exclusively for the plasma, laser, waterjet and oxyfuel cutting operation. While other vendors adapt software written for milling machines, we addressed the specific concerns for plasma type cutting services. Plasma cutting requires unique features that these other adapted software products can not supply. There is, for instance, no arc voltage height adjustment in a milling machine.
Dynatorch software can accept drawing input as traditional G-code or drawings in a DXF file format. G/M-code is a CNC machining language. DXF files are a text based file structure common to most CAD and drawing packages such as AutoCAD, ProgeCAD, Corel PhotoShop and many others. Objects created in any of these software packages are easy to import into Dynatorch using DXF file formats.

Dynatorch DXF Conversion Screen
Dynatorch offers our users a complete conversion facility package as part of our basic software. This part of our software allows standard DXF files created by any CAD or drawing software to be imported into Dynatorch to be converted into G-Code that is used to direct cutting operations. Additionally, your DXF files can be processed to optimize them for plasma cutting.
Our DXF software can convert your DXF files from individual line segments into smooth, automatically joined structures suitable for CNC plasma cutting operations. Our test run feature lets you see all the paths the torch will take while cutting. Color differentiation makes it easy to see cut paths, rapid positioning paths and joined/un-joined line segments.
Additional Dynatorch Software Features
- User selectable order of cut
- Easy creation of object arrays multiple copies of object to be cut)
- Shows object length and width
- Shows material needed to cut objects on the screen
- Software allows object to be resized to user’s needs
- Number of joined and un-joined line segments displayed
Modification of existing g-code files
- Scale files larger and smaller
- Change starting XY location
- Onscreen dimensioning of new / old files

Sheet CAM is an easy to use nesting program for cutting single or multiple parts. You select a cutting torch size and then place the parts on a sheet and move or rotate them manually. Then you tell the software to process the sheet. The system will add in kerf compensation, lead in, lead out and order of cut automatically and will give you a G-code file ready to run on the Dynatorch system.
Set up is super simple and you can be using it in no time. Many of our customers recommended this software to us as an inexpensive solution to saving a lot of time and effort. Support is available on-line and has proven to be excellent. You can also get help from our users on the CNC Zone in the Dynatorch forum. If you do not require multiple sheet nesting, this is for you.
For more information, please go to the SheetCam website.
Draftsman Cutting Shop V4.5»
Draftsman Cutting Shop V4.5 is a program designed for those who cut artwork and signs. It allows converting pictures or scanned images as well as combining text and graphics together. It has been available from the developer Arbor Image as scan it cut it for several years.
This software has a wide range of tools for artwork design and fabrication. It supports many file formats and can output files in DXF format so that you can use it with nesting software (see SigmaNEST). Stroke fonts are available for simpler marking with our scribe or pen option. You can also use the scribe with designs from cutting shop to add details to your products. If you need to convert images to cut-able files, this is for you.

Need CAD but don’t want to spend the big dollars? ProgeCAD is a fraction of the cost yet comes with all the trimmings. It provides you with a CAD solution that is easy to learn and use with less cost and great value.
From ProgeCAD USA this is a 2D cad package for non-engineers or engineers alike. It uses the standard DWG or DXF formats so it is compatible with Dynatorch and all nesting solutions. If you cut parts, you have to draw them at some point. CAD is the industry standard way to make parts with exact dimensions. If you make machine parts, you need CAD. This is your low cost way to get what you need and not spend for what you don’t.

SigmaNEST is a fully automatic nesting software from Sigmatek Systems. It can place an unlimited number of different parts on single or multiple sheets of material. It will add in the kerf offset, lead in, lead out and order of cut automatically and then output a ready to cut G-code file for Dynatorch. .
This program is for users who have full time work for their Dynatorch and need auto-nesting for multiple sheets of parts. Using your layers, you can specify cutting and marking by layer and discard drawing dimensions, title blocks and other un-needed drawing details. For full a time CAM solution, select SigmaNEST.
