Cheat Sheet

Vector and Raster

Use you software to design artwork to cut and/or engrave. Cut lines must be vectors, and sufficiently thin.

Print from your Software

Use the standard "Print" option from your software to send to the laser. Make sure you have the "Epilog Engraver" printer selected when printing.

Epilog Dashboard

When printing, your artwork will be sent to the Epilog Dashboard. The "Preview" tab will show your artwork with some basic manipulation options.

If you are connected to laser, it will show the camera bed for you to place your artwork directly on.

Remember to only place artwork in the "pink" area - and increase this area if need-be!

Engraving Options

Vector Cut Options

Advanced Options

"3D" Engraving options allows you to use a 3D greyscale depth map as an indication of height.

"Stamp" engraving allows engaving with beveled edges for better creation of stamps.

"Center Point" mode allows positioning relative to a specifyied "center point" on the laser, instead of absolute positioning on the bed (with camera alignment).


Why don't my vector cut lines appear??

Help and Hints

DXF Import

The best way to cut DXF files is with Autodesk DWG TrueView on the Laser PC.

Rotary Tool

Quick 6 Minute training video on using the rotary tool!

Be sure to turn "Rotay" mode on with "Rim-Style" type under "Advanced" tab.

Lenses and Focus

Know which lens you have! The Epilog ships with a 2" focal lens which is in the machine today - BUT - we will soon a quire a 4" lense. Always be aware of which lens you are using - it will affect quality!

Standard software on the laser PC. Recomended open-source ones (below) may be downloaded at home for free use!

Inkscape - Free open-source vector graphics program with basic bitmap capabilities. 

GIMP - Free open-source bitmap and photo editing software

Fusion360 - Professional, grade Freemium 3D CAD 

Adobe Illustrator - Professional high-end vector graphics editor

Adobe Photoshop - Professional high-end photo and bitmap editor

Autodesk DWG Trueview - Program to view and print exported DXF and DWG files from the creators of the standard

LibreCAD - Open source 2D CAD software, capable of decent DXF input

Programs generally work in either BITMAPS or VECTORS. Bitmaps are grids of pixels of different colors, each of which may be set to a different color to create an image. Vectors are the representation of a line or curve.  Epilog can engrave either bitmaps or vectors but can only use vectors as cut lines. Thus if you are are engraving a bitmap image and which to subsequently cut the image out, you need to pull the bitmap into a vector program such as Inkscape 

Critical Parameters

Deep Throat Focal Tube Distance = ????

If you do not know what these parameters mean - WATCH THE VIDEO!

Deep Throat

Deep Cutting Lens

Deep Throat allows greater clearance for deep cuts, multi-pass cuts, or cuts which require greater distance between the focal tube and your workpiece. Special training is required to use Deep Throat. Please watch THIS VIDEO before using.
