SignCAM ?

The all new SignCAM? version 3.0 is designed to cut letters and objects for signs, specifically in the transportation industry. Used with its sister product SignCAD? , it will pull all the necessary information needed from the original design to most efficiently cut expensive sign material. SignCAM separates colors, quantities, sizes and material for all letters, route markers and objects to be cut. SignCAM also calculates the square feet/meters of material to be used, for more efficient planning.

SignCAM bridges the gap between design and manufacturing by electronically delivering a completed layout and cutting format to the manufacturing area. This process not only eliminates redundant faxes and sketches usually sent to the shop, but also eliminates most duplicate design errors.

SignCAM 3.0 allows the user to set device options, such as speed, force, acceleration and other parameters, for different materials when using certain cutter languages. This new version also includes new drivers for Gerber and Anagraph cutters as well as the addition of CAM Print, CAM Print Selected and CAM Print Setup to the SignCAM menu. CAM Print will print all objects in the current workspace to the manufacturing CAM Print printer. CAM print produces the best manufacturing print without any dimensions, outlines or other design/drawing aides. CAM Print includes automatic paging, gang print end to end and mirror image options.

Platform: Windows 2000, ME, NT and XP.

"It's a real time saver. I can do in minutes what used to take me hours."
- Todd Anderson, South Carolina DOT

"It's one of the better purchases we've made. We need more copies in here because we're fighting over it. When it comes to sign design, it's an indispensable tool."
- Wayne Feaster, South Carolina DOT

"What used to take me 25 minutes now takes me 25 seconds, and I can document it."
- Tony Wlock, Manitoba Highways and Transportation

- Todd Lanphear, Traffic Planning & Design ,Pottstown, PA

"Before we had SignCAM we were designing signs in SignCAD but then exporting them out to another product for cutting. Now we have SignCAM (a module within SignCAD) and I can't believe we used anything else."
- Steve Dahl, City of Blaine ,Blaine, MN

"Before we even got our new sign system up and running we realized we had made a mistake and wasted our time and money with something else; we now have SignCAD/SignCAM!"

SignCAD works well with MicroStation, and when an issue arises the support team at SignCAD has always responded with a resolution in a timely manner. We are also very pleased with SignCAD's recent completion of our Nevada sign supplement to the MUTCD that is now available online. I would highly recommend SignCAD."
- Dave Partee, Nevada DOT ,Carson City, Nevada

"SignCAD is an amazing program. We design all of our signs with this application. It is extremely user friendly and works well with Microstation.

SignCAD's customer support is unparalleled; they strive to satisfy us in a timely and concise manner. We will continue to use SignCAD and highly recommend it to everyone."
