Software for your Valiani cutting machine

V Studio

Suite of programs for all the Valiani cutting machines

What is V Studio?

V-Studio is the suite of programs for all Valiani machines, developed to optimize the use of all computerized cutting machines. An innovative menu allows you to reach specific applications designed to create projects with absolute simplicity. Creating original mat-boards in quicker times, personalizing your boxes and achieving contour cuts from today will be simpler thanks to an ideal design environment, equipped with extraordinary tools.

A modern and intuitive environment

Design and create content for various types of work in a complete creative ambience, with an attractive look and with all the tools that you had always wished for. Thanks to a pleasing layout, clean and harmonious, the new functionality is easy to access and rationally positioned to optimize the creative workflow. A large preview, positioned in the centre of the screen, allows a clearer visualization of what the final project will be like.

Software & hardware

Valiani makes both the hardware and the software for all its range of cutting machines. Everything is conceived to work together.

Which applications make V-Studio so special?

Smart Cut 

Use the most common vector graphic programs to transfer your projects to Valiani machines.

Material Database

Optimize the software use storing all your materials including their specs , and tools & machine settings.

M3 & M3 Art

Software for boxes and POP/POS Display

What are M3 & M3 Art software?

They are specialized software for boxes and POP/POS Display. Supportive materials include folding carton, corrugated board and rigid board.

m3 is a complete library of parametric models and designs, specially designed for Valiani cutting machines. m3 is structured to give the possibility to modify, resize and cut boxes, displays and other 3D objects made with cardboard packaging.

m3 Art is a combination of features that allows graphic designers the flexibility to work directly in Adobe Illustrator using file boxes or POP / POS exhibitors and benefiting from their parameterization. Native m3 files can be opened in Illustrator without conversion and can be processed within the same work environment. Focusing on the visual aspect of the design process, m3 Art offers intuitive 3D prototyping and realistic visualization of the different types of material, printing and finishing. This integration allows graphic and CAD software to complement each other by increasing productivity without requiring any effort.

What do I find in the Library?

The m3 library of resizable designs contains more than 600 ready-to-use standards of corrugated board, folding carton or inverted corrugated board (ICB) packages. The Library of resizable designs contains designs of corrugated containers and folding carton boxes that conform to the FEFCO and ECMA standards, as well as to own standards.

The m3 Art Library contains more than 2000 ready-to-use projects. Parametric designs for folding carton and corrugated cardboard, including the full ECMA and FEFCO codes, standards appropriate for PVC and corrugated plastics are also available and a collection of parametric POP/POS displays and complex multipart structures – furniture, walls, booths, kids’ corners – for corrugated and rigid board.

The values of the parameters – for example, box height, side length, material thickness – can be altered so that new packaging can be created. The design is then automatically calculated and the relations between the various parts of the design are kept by the packaging software.

How is it integrated with Valiani cutting machines?

Both m3 bundles are fully integrated with Valiani V-Studio, allowing users to edit any designs, customize them and finally export to the V-Studio with cutting commands intact. From version 5, there is ‘instant cut’ with a dedicated Valiani button.

Opticrop

Crop mark detection software

What is Opticrop?

OptiCrop is the easy to use software, conceived by Valiani, to perform Contour Cut on pre-printed image. The software used in combination with ImageCut provides you with diagram to preview your contour cuts. This preview will even assist you in searching registration marks and export the artwork into your machine correctly.

How does it work?
Once the camera is positioned on the first registration marks, Opticrop automatically detect the 2nd, 3rd and 4th marks redrawing the artwork according to the position on the cutting table.
Retry mode is a time saving feature that allows the user to repeat the crop mark acquisition cycle should they not be found on the first attempt.
Hardware & Software

The machine mounted camera can read registration marks and detect the position of cuts on the machine’s table. OptiCrop has an advanced feature to allow you the redrawing of the artwork according to the print skew. This feature always ensures the maximum precision when performing the contour cuts.

What is the Contour Cutting?

Contour Cutting involves placing an outline around an object and makes the machine cut it.

With which R.I.P. software is integrated?

The software can import file generated by Caldera, Onyx e SAi.

Which file formats are compatible?

OptiCrop works with .SVG (Adobe Ill. o Corel Draw), .VXML e DXF Files

Color Recognition

Since OptiCrop works with vector files, it is possible to set-up plotting process using different pen colours on your art work. Using a black line the software will import the object as a cut. This feature also recognizes different colours and allows the user to set-up halftone colours in V-Studio.

Are registration marks plug-ins available?
Plug-in to add registration marks are available for both, Corel Draw and Adobe Illustrator.
