What do you mean by "laser software"?
I am thinking you mean features that are specific to laser operations. A fer instance would be automatically filling the areas inside of lettering. Or being able to shade by controlling power output via something like grey scale.
A lot of us are already using a laser on our cnc routers. In my case I just took a standard Mach 3 post processor and modified it to remove all the stuff laser cutting does not require.
An observation: A machine built to do cnc routing is not the same as a machine dedicated to laser engraving/etching. In a business situation the router would not compete well in the engraving market.
I use mine to add detail to carvings. I have posted about doing that in recent months with pictures showing what it looks like. It will also do fills but that is a bit laborious because I need to create the interior fill lines for the laser to burn.
