We are converting the software repository of our project from SVN (Subversion) to GIT and are hosting it on Github. Some links on the (new) redmine wiki may be incorrect for some time before all data is made available again. Also, the "old" wiki will not be updated with the new links and will be switched off in the near future. We would like you to check if any information is missing on the redmine wiki and copy it from the old one. Any help is appreciated.
The new URL for the repositories on GitHub will be https://github.com/laoslaser
The workshop will be given by Thomas Oster, the author of Visicut.
Visicut is lasercutting software with a WYSIWYG approach: you can move and scale objects on screen to fit them in the workspace of your laser. If you laser is equipped with a camera, you can even fit them on the object itself.
Visicut is platform- and laser-independent. It runs on Linux, Mac and Windows and it supports Epilog lasers, LaOS lasers and Lasersaurs. https://amedeo.informatik.rwth-aachen.de/groups/visicut/
Access to the workshop is free, registration is recommended. Please register on:
When: Thursday september 13th, 10:00 AM
Where: Protospace, Nijverheidsweg 16B, 3534 AM Utrecht
Jaap held a presentation on FabFuse on the use of Laos Lasers. The full presentation can be downloaded with this link. Both Peter and Jaap are present for questions and where helping (new) LaosLaser users.
We've decided to move our wiki from Mediawiki to Redmine. Redmine also includes a forum, version management and other tools that will probably prove useful in the future.

Bart & Jaap visited HPC laser this monday and picked up 6 more HPC-3020 lasers. All of them were sold without driver-board, ready to be used for LaOS.
Since we ran out, we ordered a new round of circuit boards for the LaOS project. It has some small improvements compared to rev 0.2. Most notably, it has a layout for the flatcable connector used in some HPC lasers. The new board can be ordered from info @ laoslaser.org
This small tool written in Processing shows an interactive preview of the SimpleCode path generated by VisiCut for the LAOS Laser Project.
You can copy the 123.lgc file (the file created by Visicut) from the mbed board or run an TFTP server (for example TFTPServer for Mac) on your computer and let VisiCut upload the file to that location. That way you don’t need the LaserCutter to test this.
