What Is ScanFAB Xtra Lite?

ScanFAB Xtra Lite is a fully integrated, stand-alone workstation linking existing or old designs with today’s automated production environment

ScanFAB Xtra Lite is a software-only version of ScanFAB Lite.  This Windows-based software can be used to import un-calibrated standard TIFF or BMP images from any scanner platform to automatically convert these images to a vector-based format

Input Data Versatility

ScanFAB Xtra Lite adds flexibility to the fabrication process.   ScanFAB Xtra Lite imports BMPs and TIFFs images that were scanned on any un-calibrated scanner platforms at many different dpi’s. BMPs can be in black-and-white or color.  TIFFs must be uncompressed.

Automatic Features

Tired of using slow vectorization methods? ScanFAB Xtra Lite uses a one-button feature that quickly and automatically vectorizes the image. Data is converted to vector format by creating a contour and fill of image, and generating a Gerber 274X formatted output file. ScanFAB Xtra Lite is a one step, low-cost vectorization tool.

  •  Flexibility:    Import BMPs and TIFFs from any un-calibrated scanner platform
