Corel for Laser

I’m not a fan of proprietary software but my Chinese made laser controller is tightly coupled with a specific product (Corel Draw 12 and 13 aka X3).

This sucks.

Not that Corel is a bad product, I’ve used it in the 90s and it was a great product and probably still is. I just hate buying software when it always goes bad over time.

I managed to fund a previously owned but unused copy of X3 so I will try it with the laser controller.

It will be a day or so before I try and I’ll report back.

This may complete the software chain for the new CNC laser cutter.
