LaserCAM email@example.com This is a .Net Windows App that will read an SVG file containing both vector and bitmap shapes and convert it into GCode suitable for driving a laser cutter. This code was developed to drive an inexpensive Chinese laser from Mach3 and works quite well for vector shapes. The raster suffers from being too slow and doesn't control the laser on/off fast enough so there's uneven power applied. But compared to the horrific software that came with the machine, this produces smooth cuts that are an order of magnitude more precise.
