Pattern Software Programs for Dealers
Computer Cut (CC), distributed by Solar Gard, serves as a cloud-based pattern software which the company says can eliminate up to 95 percent of cutting for dealers. The CC database stores thousands of patterns which dealers can modify to meet their desired specifications. Patterns include various windshields and car windows in addition to paint protection film and decorative patterns.

PrecisionCut by Llumar is a pattern system with a hybrid cloud-and-hard-drive database including more than 4,500 built-in customizable graphics. The software, which has the capability to track film usage, also has a free-hand drawing tool and offers users the chance to build a customized library of images.

Xpel Technologies offers its Digital Access Program (DAP), which allows shops to create their own PPF, headlamp protection and tint kits. The software comes with a cost calculator and an optional training course in addition to more than 85,000 different images available for pattern use. DAP also allows for customized requests that Xpel claims will be fulfilled within 48 hours of the request.

Avery Dennison has introduced its Nano-Fit PPF pattern software this January. The company says its new cutting software works with most vinyl film plotters. The software is designed for use with Nano-Fusion PPF and is backed by warranty. The package offers a comprehensive and flexible solution for installers and distributors and comes with unlimited pattern service.
