RobotLaser version 0.5 (beta) has been released
RobotLaser is a complete suite for laser engraver management,
It allows upload images, elaborate them and send to the engraver,
there is also the possibility of moving "manually" the laser, moving it in any direction, with power on or off,
Small GCode programs can also be manually written .
The suite imports almost any Windows compatible bitmap graphics(.jpg, .gif, .bmp, .png etc. etc.)
The image could be scaled to the desired size (in mm), is also possible to rotate and mirror images,
spatial filter (Laplacian etc.) may also be applied or profile can extracted (ex. to cut a material)
Is also possible to import DXF type vector files, particularly suitable for "Cut" works.
Is possible to modulate laser power (in addition to grayscale) assigning a different value to each image color
RobotLaser works with the widely used CNC firmware: GRBL v. 0.9
(for PWM power control).
Next release of RobotLaser (0.6) will work also with Marlin
firmware in order to use a 3D printer
for laser engraving and easy CNC works (ex. printed circuit engraving).RobotLaser
