Laser Dashboard and Job Manager
The Laser Dashboard™ controls your laser’s settings from a wide range of software packages – from design programs to spreadsheet applications to CAD drawing packages. As the interface to the laser, the Laser Dashboard makes the features you use most often accessible at the touch of a button.
The Job Manager is a powerful tool that will allow you to access any job you have sent to the laser, view the settings you used on any past job, re-run projects, access your material database, and much more.
Epilog laser systems work through a print driver, so you can design your files in many different graphic software packages including Illustrator, Photoshop, AutoCAD, and much more. However AET Labs recommends and supports CorelDraw, which is the most commonly used software
- Building exhaust or fume extraction system
- Graphics software (CorelDraw or equivalent)
- Air assist pump
- Rotary attachment
- Vector cutting grid
- Photo laser plus software
- Laser Dashboard and Job Manager (1-2 hrs)
- Laser set-up and Operations (~1-2 hrs)
- Using CorelDraw with your laser (4-6 hrs)
- Advanced laser applications (4-6 hrs)
