hello everyone,

hi, i need your expertise, i have Fabriwin software that i used in LC2415 Alpha III, and it only run in Windows XP, unfortunately both of the software and the OS crush, im looking for a new software that is compatible with at least windows 7 or windows 10.
any help would much appreciated.

thank you


Hello vlads21,

Our company used to use fabriwin but have since then switched to Striker systems. It has served us well so far. The nice thing about striker is its based around autocad so you can design new parts and change stuff on the fly. Part organization and sheet nesting are pretty user friendly. Im by no means an expert in this field so this is just my 2 cents. smile


Otherwise I have a guy here who knows all about this stuff. You can give him a call if you want. Chuck: (909) 217-9849


Thanks laser guy, ill try to contact him, although i just wonder if the striker is compatible with my machine? I want to get new software which can run in latest windows OS that also compatible with my machine... ill check that striker system too, thanks again bro.


You probably have an old version of FabriWIN. If you upgrade you should have no problem running a newer version of the software on windows 7/10. It's worth mentioning that Amada has dropped the FabriWIN name and calls the software AP100.


hi Jetrep,

thank you for your time responding, i would like to ask anyone if VPSS 3i PD and VPSS3i Laser CAM Plus is worth it?
someone offer us for $14,400 for this software and i would like to seek an option and opinion first.
guys i really need an urgent help to get a new software that compatible for my machine.

P.S. forgot to mention, that my USB drive in the machine is not working, i only depend on Computer to Machine when Sending NC Code.

thank you in advance all.. hope to here from everyone soon.



I have a software package that will be less expensive than what you are currently looking at and will do a nice job for you. You can call me, Sam at: 704-460-3506.


Get Virtualbox and use it to run an instance of XP with Fabriwin running on that instance. Virtualbox runs on Win 10 just fine.

White Paper - The Criticality of the E/E Architecture
Modern vehicles are highly sophisticated systems incorporating electrical, electronic, software and mechanical components. Mechanical systems are giving way to advanced software and electronic devices, driving automakers to innovate and differentiate their vehicles via the electric and electronic (E/E) architecture. As the pace of change accelerates, automotive companies need to evolve their development processes to deliver and maximize the value of these architectures. Download Now
White Paper - Model Based Engineering for Wire Harness Manufacturing
Modern cars, trucks, and other vehicles feature an ever-increasing number of sophisticated electrical and electronic features, placing a larger burden on the wiring harness that enables these new features. As complexity rises, current harness manufacturing methods are struggling to keep pace due to manual data exchanges and the inability to capture tribal knowledge. A model-based wire harness manufacturing engineering flow automates data exchange and captures tribal knowledge through design rules to help harness manufacturers improve harness quality and boost efficiency.

White Paper - Modeling and Optimizing Wire Harness Costs for Variation Complexity
This paper will focus on the quantification of the complexity related costs in harness variations in order to model them, allowing automated algorithms to optimize for these costs. A number of real world examples will be provided as well. Since no two businesses are alike, it is the aim of this paper to provide the foundational knowledge and methodology so the reader can assess their own business to model how variation complexity costs affect their business.
