Wasatch's Contour Cutting Option includes the Wasatch Tracer which provides a streamlined option for creating contour cut paths directly within SoftRIP. The Tracer is quick and interactive, and equally effective for both raster and vector graphics.

The Contour Cutting Option also provides an updated workflow for contour cutting. With powerful tools and fewer steps needed to prepare cut jobs, it is the premier solution for your print-and-cut needs.

With print-and-cut workflows, SoftRIP's ability to track register marks between different printing and cutting devices assures a smoother workflow and more accurate registration.
