    This is CutFab’s killer feature! The world’s most efficient automatic nesting algorithms in CutFab have proven to be unbeatable in all application areas.

  • Highly customisable

    CutFab is designed from the ground up for knife cutters, however we realise that every business is different and having software tailored to your exact requirements can multiply its usefulness by orders of magnitude.

  • Integrate it with your other systems

    Integrating with your planning and production systems to allow you to get a real-time overview of what’s happening in your business – cutting time estimates will help you identify issues that are costing time and money quickly.

    Many software vendors have directly integrated with our software to allow seamless communication between their own software and CutFab to allow you to access the world’s best nesting without replacing your familiar software.

  • Easy to use and train new users on!

    Forget about sending your team away for expensive training or spending days scratching your head over software. CutFab has been designed with simplicity, power and practicality in mind. You can be confident that your team will go from installation to production in hours not days.


LightSpeed is our innovative projection system which is tightly integrated with CutFab to provide on-cutting table projection of kitted parts to allow for easy/print-less picking of parts from your runoff table.
