Universal Control Panel (UCP) is a CAM package which works with the ULS PLS4.75.

Design Parameters

UCP requires specific design parameters. You'll need to set these in the 2D vector drawing program. Specifically:

  1. The document must be in RGB color mode in order for colors to be read properly.
  2. Explicitly, you may only use three colors for objects:
    1. Red (255, 0, 0)
    2. Blue (0, 0, 255)
    3. Black (0, 0, 0)
  3. Red and Blue are only used for strokes.
  4. Black can be used for stroke and/or path.
  5. If strokes are Red or Blue, the must be 0.025mm thick.
  6. Any text must be converted into paths prior to sending to UCP. In Inkscape, this can be done by selecting the text and navigating Path --> Object to Path.
