Gerber announces new design software with new features


New Omega 7.0 software from Gerber Technologies includes over 25 new features that were suggested by its customers. Key highlights of the new edition include: User Palette – customised by the user; Function Templates – savable function sets; Select by Job Palette – allows selection from the job palette; Persistent Foil Adjust – easier to use foil adjust for colour to colour correction; Keyboard Customise – allows user assignable hotkeys; Back-cut Improvements – layer name monitoring and device selection; CS Software Functions Added – including clipping paths and process colours. The layer manager additions in the new Gerber design software allow users to move items to new layers at the bottom instead of the top, to best use the routing by layers in ARTpath so that the users control the cut order and material holding logic.
