I just got a plotter with a 7W TTL PMW laser. As the original software sucks to say the least (EleksCam), I have started looking for alternatives, and found LaserGRBL, which works great.
However, I'm having difficulties generating a decent gcode from my project. It's true, the file is complex, but it should be possible to generate a simple code out of it - after all, it's all vectors. Here's a sample. Now, I'm aware of the gcodetools plugin, but I cant get it to generate laser relevant gcode (in fact I'm only getting .ngc files, which are not supported by LaserGRBL). I have also tried Repetier laser tool and J Tech Photonics Laser Tool, where the latter produces fine results for simple outlines, and former is simply no good.
LaserGRBL has been presented as being able to generate very nice results from simply tracing a bitmap, but after many tries I haven't achieved a satisfactory result (after exporting my svg to either png or pdf, and then tracing it).
Can anyone recommend a functional solution, please?
