What is BenCutLaser you might be asking yourself? BenCutLaser is my effort (I am the Admin here at Benboxlaser.us) at writing laser cutting software as a CAM application...designed specifically for our low power laser machines. This is something that does not currently exist. Not many people are interested in developing a CAM program that addresses the unique requirements of our machines. So, I have decided to write it myself.
So, BenCutLaser is a CAM software that will give you the capability to create toolpaths and then generate gcode to cut and engrave (line burns) materials such as 3mm wood and 3mm acrylic. This is very different software from what @Zax has developed in his T2 software. T2 is designed for photo and image engraving. BenCutLaser is being designed for making cuts and surface line engravings (what I call line burns) on parts that you have designed using your CAD software.
You can follow my development progress on this website www.BenCutLaser.us
(I have not yet had time to put up this website so please stay tuned for it).
website has a question/answer forum, you can post questions and comments in this board. You can also PM here if you wish.
Let the fun begin!
