Laser engraver and cutter systems require graphics and driver software in order to create the project design and then to transport the design from the computer to the engraver for production. Our engraver and cutter systems currently support three different graphics applications: LaserCut, CorelDraw, and AutoCAD.
LaserCut is our own user-friendly laser engraver and cutter software that makes it easy to send graphics and text to the laser engraver or cutter. LaserCut is perfectly suited to be your primary graphics program; however, our engraver and cutter systems also have the flexibility to accept input from AutoCAD versions 2000-2006 and CorelDraw 11-X4 through the installation of drivers specific to each of those applications. These drivers allow you to send a project directly to the laser engraver or cutter from CorelDraw or AutoCAD
A brief overview of the LaserCut interface is seen below.

One of the more common graphics applications used for a laser engraver and cutter system is CorelDraw. Once you install the CorelDraw driver, you will see a new toolbar added to your CorelDraw interface:
The new Laser toolbar allows the user to send files directly to the engraver or cutter system.
After drawing or importing your graphic, click the Laser Output tab:
