Automated camera registration for repetitive die cutting?

#1

I just found this video from Epilog demonstrating their eView Camera Module. I like the idea of putting pre-marked sheets without repetitive manual registration into the machine and it will die cut them. Anything like this in the works for Glowforge?

Great question. Dovetails with this thread on indexing. Saving a project’s specs would be great. Templates to load. I have to find a real life laser cutter to see what is standard for setting up projects.


Image layer support?

Functionality like this would be amazing, and super useful. I could see myself using that a lot.

The GF hardware makes it possible, so it’s just a matter of having the software support it. Maybe something like that will be in a future software update.

I think it’s a great idea. It’s already in the feature hopper.

@Dan would that be future feature hopper or the current feature hopper?

There’s just one hopper. : )

It’s the list for consideration to do later.

Ok, I hope it has a big old nozzle…
