RetinaEngrave 3.0 Arrives For New Era of Pro-Series

Pro Series RE3 2

Welcome to the New Era of Pro-Series Laser Systems from Full Spectrum Laser featuring RetinaEngrave 3.0. You may be aware that until now, Pro-Series machines used our original laser control software, RetinaEngrave (1.0). While this software has been getting the job done for years, 'RE3' simply offers a fuller, more modern interface and better functionality. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at what has changed with RetinaEngrave 3.0 vs the original RetinaEngrave.

Browser Access

Accessing the software has fundamentally changed for the better. There is no longer anything to download to your computer. This is because the software is now browser-based. That means you access it through the browser of your choice (though we do recommend Google Chrome for best results). This also means RE3 is fully compatible with not only PC computers, but also with Mac and Linux operating systems. You can also access the software on multiple computers with just the IP address supplied by your laser system. This is great for classrooms or teams using the software together.

  • RE1: Downloaded Software, PC only
  • RE3: Browser Based Software, No Downloading, PC, Mac & Linux

Modern User Interface

Once you actually see RetinaEngrave 3.0, you will notice a clean, modern interface. While RE1 has an intuitive interface of its own, the RE3 face-lift brings a lot of innovative design to speed up your workflow and output. Getting to your projects and settings is easier than ever and that helps shorten your time in the software so you can spend more time outputting your products. RE3 also benefits from years of in-house development of RE1, including customer feedback, to be the most user friendly and intuitive laser control software on the market.   

  • RE1: Outdated Interface
  • RE3: Intuitive and User Friendly, Simple Workflow, Fewer clicks for Fastest Output

Built-In Design Suite

While RE1 had a few design tools to play with, you still often needed access to 3rd party design software to create and adjust project files. RE3 eliminates the need for 3rd party design software by including a full design suite in the laser software. Again, the new, modern interface will be very familiar and intuitive for those using current gen design programs so transitioning to the RE3 design tools will be seamless.  

  • RE1: Limited Design Tools, Requires Design Importing
  • RE3: Full Built-In Design Tool Suite, Design directly onto interface, full node manipulation

Faster Workflow

What all these improvements come down to is that they create an easier and faster workflow. Projects are easier to design, save, recall and run. The process is more seamless and intuitive. And, overall, the process is easier to learn and master. All in all, users save time, which, in turn, saves money and increases output.
