Here is an update as we get ready to release the beta version of the Emblaser 2 software.
Laserweb is an open-source software project which we have been supporting and working closely with the development team since the Emblaser 2 was first being designed. It has undergone what we would classify as ‘major’ development work over the last 6 months. The current iteration is perfect for the Emblaser as all its unique features are supported.
Laserweb is fully Windows (PC) and OSX (Mac) compatible.
It can be installed and run locally on your computer OR over the internet.
The software runs through a Chrome browser on your device.
File formats currently supported
Vector:: SVG & DXF
Raster (image): JPG, PNG
Please note, more formats will be added over time.
How it works
Laserweb is the interface between you and your Emblaser2. It is used to import your design files or photos, position them in the workspace and define the tasks you would like to perform with them (cut, engrave etc).
Laserweb incorporates a material database which contains some common material cutting and engraving presets to get you started. You are able to add to the database as you find the perfect settings for your own projects.
There is no need to manually focus the Emblaser 2. Simply enter the thickness of your material into Laserweb and it will set the correct height for perfect focus.
More detailed instructions will be available at release.
