Laser Engraving Help

So I’m totally new to CNC and I’m pretty lost here. I purchased the Whittle CNC about two months ago and got the laser add on. Its a low power 150mw. I am trying to use Easel to do some simple wood engraving, and so far all I can do is “engrave” a tiny dot at the home position when I get the focal length dialed in. Any advice on how to move forward would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you


I don’t think you can laser engrave with Easel. You will need to find a program that supports laser engraving. Laser grbl is a free one and picengrave is a very good low cost program. You can draw what you want in inkscape and use UGS to send it also.

There is LaserGRBL and Kirimoto. Might be what you are looking for.
