We have introduced a Laser Module that can be purchased as an add on to any of our Cut2D Desktop or Pro, VCarve Desktop or Pro, or Aspire version 10.5+ Vectric products for only US$49. This module enables you to create projects using hybrid laser and CNC machining, all within one package.
Take advantage of the same drawing, machining and layout tools you are already used to. Simply create your project, choose which parts you want to cut on your CNC and which parts you want to laser. View all elements of the finished hybrid project in your simulation.
Initially we aim to support the following machine tools (and controllers) using the most common commercially available solid-state laser diode modification kits.
- X-Carve (GRBL)
- Shapeoko (GRBL)
- Ooznest (Duet2)
- Digital Wood Carver (PlanetCNC controller)
- Nextwave - Nextwave Laser Controller
- OpenBuilds (GRBL)
- Stepcraft (UCCNC)
Other similar machines or controllers *may* work. The trial editions will allow you to test your machine configuration before you purchase. Please note, however, that we are unable to provide support for other configurations at this time.
