Sorry if I'm kind of off topic, but I was reading the responses to the retina post discussion, and I was hoping for a little help.
My circuit board on my cheap Chinese laser finally gave up the ghost. I replaced it with one of Chriscircuits boards, and I've been using a demo version of Mach 3 to run my laser(I do plan to purchase the full version, as soon as I can sort out this raster problem). It seems to work fine, with the exception that I cannot figure out how to do raster engraving. A large part of my laser engraving was for pens and other promotional goods, that required engraving fonts and logos.
I've been doing allot of research, and tried a Mach3 plugin, but I kept getting a error code(art error 9991), and had little success getting any further along. My question is: Is it possible to perform raster engraving using Mach 3 and it's G-code output?
Any assistance would be appreciated.
