How to prepare files for lasercutting


Playlists: 'jev22' videos starting here / audio

How do I create files in such a way that they are later understood correctly by the lasercutter? What possibilities and tools are there? Why should I pay attention to the selection of the material to be lasercut when creating the file? What are typical pitfalls, do's & don'ts? In the workshop that will follow this talk, we will put all this into practice using Inkscape.
