SAi launches Flexi Complete

SAi has introduced the latest version of its sign making software, Flexi Complete, which aims to rationalise the sprawling Flexi range of products into a single all-in-one package that includes design and RIP features for wide format printing and cutting.

Consequently, the finishing tools – such as adding grommets, fold lines and bleeds – are now available to designers, where before they were an optional extra with the RIP. SAi has also updated the user interface with new options to personalise the theme and layout.

The Production Manager RIP has gained two new nesting options, which allow job images to be viewed during movement and layouts to be updated effortlessly with a simple checkbox. There are also features for manually checking where objects overlap as well as for setting vertical alignments. 

Amongst the new tools is the Advanced ContourCut, which lets users preview contour paths by themselves. There’s also a new Custom Weed Path tool for easily creating weed lines. 

Mikki Webb, President and CEO of SAi, commented: “As we have always done, we’re constantly developing the software to ensure it meets the specific and demanding needs of our customers and in Flexi Complete, we are delivering a solution that genuinely shifts the dial in improving productivity and efficiencies across the full gamut of sign and large format print applications.”

Mercifully, almost all of the various Flexi variants have now merged into this one edition. That said, there are still a couple of other options. There’s a standalone Design version, which doesn’t include the RIP, as well as a DtF/ DtG version for garment printing.

However, Flexi is only sold on a subscription basis, which is becoming increasingly common for design software but not so much for RIPs. You can find further details from thinksai.com.
