Valuable Features
Point 1. Basic Function (Half cut, Rotation, Scaling, and Mirror)

Half Cut - The half cut is the function that cuts the film without cutting the backing sheet. This function is useful to leave the text or symbols on the backing sheet while maintaining the proportion of it.  Scaling - The scaling is the function that sets the scale factor to enlarge or shrink the text or symbol to be cut. If the size of the designed text or symbol is large or small to set to a panel after it is cut, the text or symbol to be cut can be increased or reduced in step of two or half times using this function without changing the design.  Rotation - The rotation is function that rotates the coordinate axes to change the cutting direction. By using this function, the text or symbol to be cut can be arranged in an available area. The cutting film can be used effectively, and a wasting of the cutting film will be minimized.  Mirror - The mirror is function that cuts the text or symbol in mirror image. This function is used for the window display sign. When the text or symbol to be cut is applied to the window from inside and it is seen from outside, text or symbol needs to be cut in mirror image. It can be done using this function without changing design.
