EZCAD3 Laser Marking Software
EZCAD3 Laser and Galvo Control Software for Laser Marking, Etching, Engraving, Cutting, Welding...
EZCAD3 works with DLC2 series laser controller, with the ability to control most types of lasers (Fiber, CO2, UV, Green, YAG, Picosecond, Femtosecond...) in the market, with brands like IPG, Coherent, Rofin, Raycus, Max Photonics, JPT, Reci, and Dawei...
As for laser galvo control, till Jan 2020, it is compatible with 2D and 3D laser galvo with XY2-100 and SL2-100 protocol, from 16 bits to 20 bits, both analogical and digital.
EZCAD3 inherits all the functions and features of EZCAD2 software and equipped with the most advanced software and laser control technologies. Now it is widely verified and adapted by global laser system manufacturers on their laser machines, which is with laser galvo.
New Features Comparing with EZCAD2
With 64 software kernel, a larger size of the file can be loaded to EZCAD3 much faster without any crash and the software data processing time is much shorter.
With DLC2 series controllers, EZCAD3 is capable to control maximum of 4 motors driven by pulses/direction signals for industrial automation.
EZCAD3 software can be controlled by commands sent through TCP IP.
Better software calculation enables faster marking speed comparing with EZCAD2. Special functions are developed for high-speed coding and texting.
gradual laser power up/down can be controlled precisely for special applications.
With DLC2 series controller, 3D format file STL can be loaded to EZCAD3 and sliced precisely. With the slicing function, 2D deep engraving ( Engraving a 3D STL file on a 2D surface) can be done easily with 2D laser galvo and motorized Z lift.
With the DL2-M4-3D controller and 3 axis laser galvo, laser processing on the 3D surface can be reached.
Maximum 8 files can be stored inside the flash of the control board and selectable by IO.
EZCAD3 software secondary development kit/API is available for system integrators to make a customized software.
gradual speed power up/down can be controlled precisely.
DLC2-M4-2D and DLC2-M4-3D controller was developed for EZCAD3 laser software. The main difference between these two boards is to be able to control 3 axis laser galvo or not.
EZCAD3 uses licence+encryption dongle (Bit Dongle) to protect the software. One license can be maximum activated 5 times, and the dongle must be inserted when using.
To upgrade to EZCAD3, you need to upgrade the laser controller as well. If you are not seeking for doing 3D marking, then DLC2-M4-2D will be ok.
If you have the license, EZCAD3 can be open and the job files can be saved.

1. Can EZCAD3 software work with EZCAD2 controller boards?
EZCAD3 software only work with DLC series controller.
2. How can I upgrade EZCAD2 to EZCAD3?
You current controller must be changed to DLC series controller, and the cable must be rewired due to different pinmap.
3. What is the difference between EZCAD3 and EZCAD2?
The diferences are highlighted on the catalog. EZCAD2 now has been stopped due to technical reasons. JCZ now is focusing on EZCAD3 and add more functions to EZCAD3.
4. What application can be done with EZCAD3?
EZCAD3 can be used from various laser applications as long as the machine is with galvo scanner.
5. Can I save job files without connecting controller board?
Once the software is activated. It is not necessary to connect controller for do the designing and saving.
