Companies and individuals can design complex custom-fitting layouts in minutes, rather than hours, without buying the software suite outright—subscriptions to Design2Fab are available on a monthly, yearly or three-year basis.

Design2Fab subscribers gain access to one-on-one live support from knowledgeable professionals, in addition to online resources such as video tutorials. This all contributes to increased productivity and lower operating costs.

“Design2Fab provides an excellent industry-proven solution for businesses who need to create flat pattern layouts for duct applications. The simplified job set-up allows even a beginner to immediately start making fittings with a complete range of templates,” said Bob Tiedt, a Design2Fab sales manager. The software provides the flexibility to export patterns to DXF for automated cutting; export to HPGL for printing to a plotter; or lay out patterns manually using XY or triangulation points. For those looking to nest jobs, create reports and identification labels for ducts, Design2Fab is the only software offering integration to nesting software.
