Meet Lasersaur, an open source laser cutter with SVG input
Dec. 6, 2011, 7:03 p.m.
We already reported before on Inkscape related projects that assist and promote personal fabrication, such as Egg-Bot and Inkcut. There is another project that used to be consistently slipping our attention, but recently moved into focus at last. It's Lasersaur, an open source laser cutter that is being worked on by folks from Nortd Labs. The device is controlled via a web app that can use SVG for input.
The project has a strong focus on making means for personal fabrication accessible worldwide. Once the financial goal is reached, all the drafts and documentation will be made public under an open, non-restrictive license. The source code is already available on Github. If you are interested in the project, we encourage you to support it.
