Building on top of the work previously demonstrated here by another forum member (@gwygonik): community.glowforge. com/t/generative-svgs-for-engraving/5843 , I built an open source, web-based software for converting images into engraveable artworks. These engravings take only a fraction of the time comparing to raster images and the output should be compatible with Glowforge since it’s just SVG files that are generated.
Check out a little example of the image -> SVG conversion:
You can use your WebCam to make these drawings interactively and change parameters by dragging a few sliders here:
The software is open source and the code is published here:

Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions!
