Laser

Postby Hardwood » Thu Jun 07, 2018 8:00 pm

I have heard from PicLaser they are working with Vectric, I have a Laser on my Axiom CNC and would love to be able to burn photos.

Is Vectric soon to upgrade the software for Laser?

I was told that a module is to be released, likely this spring, that will enable lasers specifically with JTech and probably others. I was told the price would likely be about $50.00. For what it's worth.

Thank you for all your help on this.

The laser I have for my Axiom CNC is made by JTec. The problem I have is bringing the photo after you dither it in PicLaser to Vectric' I have the post processor by JTec I have set up the tool for the laser in the tool data base. I was told by Piclaser that they were work with Vectric to make this posable.

I have the software and post proc from JTech also their laser module and another 15 Watt one from china.
haven't had time to do much with any of it. I believe if you work with Pic laser you can turn your image ( BMP ) into
Gcode and run it on your machine.
