InkScape Workflows to GCode – Cutting a Logo with a Laser!

In this episode we will use the free InkScape application to convert a raster image (PNG in this case) into a vector and than to GCode to cut on our laser cutter.  Worth note is this will also work with other raster image formats such as JPG, GIF and others.  Also this is a workflow video so we will talk about how we several programs to create a “workflow” which gets us to our end product.  In addition, while this will cut on the laser cutter, we could also run the same code and mill this on the CNC machine as well.

Dwell Issue with GRBL Using a Laser

Appears there is a delay in GRBL (v0.9) with the issue of the M03 spindle direction command GRBL will delay its movement to allow time for the spindle to spin down, reverse and spin back up.  So instead of using M03/M04 for rapids, we have switched to using PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) using S0 to set to the lowest level (basically off) and S1000 for full power.
