LFP PDF Slicer splits large pdf's into smaller slices or strokes that will fit on your large format printer.
This is called tiling or paneling.

You can slice your pdfs in 4 different ways: Automatic, Fixed width, Custom widths and CSV driven.

 

Let LFP PDF Slicer automatically slice your pdf based on the printer width, or define a fixed width for all slices, or different widths for each slice, or write your own csv file with coordinates and settings. This way you can slice jobs in both directions, take different printing materials into account for vehicles and windows.

 

In the app properties, depending on the chosen Slicer mode, you can define the scale of the incoming pdf, the maximum width of your printer or the slices width(s), the wanted overlap and bleed, the optional CutContour line width, and LFP PDF Slicer will split your file in as many slices as needed. The overlap can be added to the slices width, or included. In Automatic mode, all slices can have the same width (for cutting reasons). You can also choose to rotate every 2 slices 180° so that slight differences in color between left and right edges of the print pass unnoticed.

A dataset and corresponding private data (just in case you don't have the Switch Metadata module) will be attached to each slice with the job info, slice info, x and y coordinates of the slices, height and width, bleed amount, etc, if you need this information further in your flow.

Please note that the trim box and bleed box must be centered in the incoming pdf. LFP PDF Slicer uses Pitstop Server in the background, so Pitstop Server must be installed on the same machine.
