GSView has some interesting print options, like “Print to Postscript printer” – also, as a loooong shot, on the Inkscape print dialog there is a tab called “Rendering”. Manual control of the bed on the left hand side inside the bed. If I try to print the svg from Inkscape it etches the circle, if I print the pdf from Adobe Reader it cuts the circle. If I understand the situation correctly, it is not actually needed on other platforms. I have the same issue running Inkscape 0.

This page provides upgrades for your laser system. The possibility to use inkscape for lasercutting would be a great opportunity for our fablab.

Adjust your settings as you want them for each particular thing and make sure to click the right-pointing arrow to transfer epilg new settings to the printer. According to this article http: On Windows XP I get the attached non-rasterized file.

This bug affects 8 people. We typically use units of “in” or “mm” to create geometry for the laser which leaves “pt” essentially untapped as long as an equivalent dimension in a another unit not used.

Laaer have to clean the lens on the machine almost all the time. Printing to Laser cutter rasterizes images Bug reported by Casey Borders on It appears as it will be printed.

With a geometric pen it was not possible to produce a “Vector” output. I am not entirely sure if this will run as-is on your machine because it depends on which version of Inkscape you are currently running, but give it a try, and if laxer are error messages then report them here, together with the version number of your Inkscape.


Inkscape resolution is 90 dpi. If it doesn’t – you need to open the printer queue, delete the job and then do Make EPI and Send it again. In the process a friend donated an old Shuttle computer running XP.

Lift up the big part on top of machine and reach back to clean it from all angles with the Q Tip. Both cases assuming that the VL Advanced printer driver is default.

You should see the path that the machine will do. I have the same issue running Inkscape 0.

It is hpgl vector graphics as can be seen from the commands which it contains:. Liinux is part of the reason why I abandoned the code search and tried a different tack.

Manual control of the bed on the left hand side epilkg the bed. The new Windows Vista and 7 drivers from Epilog were only 32 bit drivers and it didn’t work.

I have confirmed that a geometric pen cannot be used to produce a vector output. A partially positive test laer the Python code has been reported at Bug I printed this to an output file using the printer driver for an HP Laserjet running at dpi. I haven’t been successful from Linux yet this was all done last nightbut I’m going to spend some more time trying.


If you had decided that you wanted everything to be written as vector, then you could modify the Python script to force everything to be done as vector output, regardless of the Inkscape stroke width. Reboot the laser cutter by turning it on and off.

Introducing the Epilog Mac Driver

Email me about changes to this lzser report. You need to keep your eye on it. I can also use ilnux print function to output raster via the same VL Advanced driver. Even at a linewidth of zero pixels, an ordinary geometric line was both outlined and also filled with an apparent linewidth of 1 pixel. Is this fix included in release 0. It was committed at rev Cosmetic pens don’t support caps and joins but if the line is 1 device unit wide this won’t matter.
