Mr Beam can process SVG, JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP, PCX and DXF.
Pixel based graphics (JPG, PNG, BMP, PCX) can be engraved but not cut.
Vector graphics (SVG, DXF) can be cut and engraved depending on the objects used.
It is possible to combine several different graphics and graphics formats for one laser job.
In SVG files:
Line objects (including path outlines) can be cut and engraved while fillings and areas can only be engraved. Text elements need to be converted into path objects.
Laser job configuration:
Mr Beam II groups all cuttable objects (lines) by color. Each group (meaning each color) can be assigned different laser parameters. For example laser job parameters could be chosen in a way that all red lines will be cut with 3 passes, green lines will be cut with 2 passes but higher intensity and blue lines will just be engraved.
Settings for engraving are configured globally per laser job; theres not need to define individual configurations for each color.
