BossLaser.com CEO Dan Fox announced the new Boss Direct Drive (BDD) which allows laser machine operators in the United States to significantly improve the usability of Chinese engraving machines.
According to Fox, “Until Boss Direct Drive (Boss DD) laser machine operators were left to figure out how to learn and understand Chinese laser interface software. Chinese software for laser machines can make it difficult for operators to migrate a file, and then design print from their favorite graphics program.
“The task is made difficult since foreign software often conflicts with certain Windows operating systems. As a result help forums are filled with confused and stressed out laser machine owners who simply just want to get their design to ‘print’ to their laser.Boss Direct Drive (Boss DD) now offers a solution,” said Fox.
Boss Direct Drive (Boss DD) driver is compatible with Windows 7 and 8 32/64 bit, XP and 2000 operating systems. Additionally, it is compatible with many of the popular graphics programs like Corel Draw, Photoshop, AutoCAD, AcceliCAD , DolphinCAD,Corel Paint, Microsoft Word, etc. The job is designed and simply printed to the USB 2.0 high speed port for the BOSS USB controller. Once set and initialized, Boss DD hides in the background just like a printer driver would operate.
Fox elaborated, “The combination of the Boss DD driver and USB micro laser control card work to manage the appropriate Engrave (Raster) and Cut (Vector) signals from the graphics program once the job is printed to the driver.
“With the preset information for resolution and acceleration within each of the axes, as well as the color based settings for power, speed, and frequency, Boss DD prepares and processes the job. There is nothing like it in the marketplace.”
Design your job in one of the popular, off-the-shelf applications like Corel Draw, AutoCAD, Adobe Illustrator, and others then simply print, sit back, and watch as Boss DD quickly sends the job to the laser machine equipped with the Boss DD control card.
