See if Fiery Prep-it is it the right solution for you.
Fiery Prep-it is a powerful, feature-rich application that can connect to all RIPs that read PDF files, and is compatible with many different cutting tables and router types. It joins different manufacturers' equipment together, and expands production throughput and capabilities with:
True shape nesting
The Prep-it free-angle true shape nesting uses the least amount of media possible for a given set of nested jobs. Nests are calculated at speed, and can contain one or multiple jobs, as well as multi--page PDFs.
Produce perfectly aligned, two-sided prints from highly accurate, double-sided nests of both rectangular and irregular-shaped jobs.
Presets, hot folders, and automation
Set up an unlimited number of hot folders with predefined actions assigned for error free job preparation. Plus, totally "hands-off" production automation can be achieved from prepress workflow, MIS, and web-to-print solutions with JSON file "job definition" integration to Fiery Prep-it.
Cut path editing
Add, remove, and fine-tune cut path points with familiar editing tools, and toggle between before and after results. Merge multiple cut paths, plus generate inline or outline offset paths in seconds.
Tiling and paneling
Easily tile oversized rectangular and irregular-shaped jobs automatically — with no limits on size and number of panels. Perform advanced functions such as overlaps, gap, oversize/bleed, extra white area, and eyelets.
Cut marks and barcodes
Add a variety of cut marks and barcode types automatically, with the option to override and use manual placements.
Move jobs manually or by coordinates, scale them numerically or by percentage, plus crop jobs visually. Create simple cut paths with just a few clicks.
Fiery Prep-it is a very powerful and easy to use solution. It can nest irregular-shaped jobs very quickly and uses media extremely efficiently. We save at least 50% of time versus manually nesting jobs, plus, we can automate the whole print for cut process fully using Prep-it’s integration capabilities.
