RanFab is our newest release and it will replace the former LaserQuote Pro. As most of our users can attest to during the last couple of years our direction on our development map and the target audience for our most successful market has pushed our software deep into the fabrication ,subcontracting, engineering , full manufacturing and general build to stock and order type of businesses . While these still have possibly the occasional profile cutting needs they tend to be more of a casual need and less of a single and only requirement. In addition to this our association to world class nesting software systems have made us decide to begin writing a new generation of software and we are calling it “RanFab”.

Users of LaserQuote Pro with a valid licence will be able to upgrade to this new release , please read the details about the procedure to adopt from within the support portal.
