@Grant-B Yes absolutely, I replaced the board in mine with an older Eleks L1 (as it was spare). I removed the sockets from the old board to make the connection to the ribbon cable easier but I've seen others solder directly to it. You can also get a drop in replacement board that will work but it's ~$100. Anything that runs Grbl or compatible firmware will work directly with T2Laser.
YES your assistance would be most welcomed re T2L.
I must admit to having read some excellent reviews of this product, & if it is as good as it sounds, the it will be worth the money for sure.
I understand that T2L has some design features, but my main need is to simply import DXF files into it & ONLY cut... not interested in etching at all, as the laser is simply a work tool i built, not a toy & it urgently needs to get busy lol.
Please get in touch when you have got back from your holiday, it would be great to learn as much as possible - much appreciated Sir.
@njhollett Just extract the files from EleksMaker InkScape Plugin.zip and copy the extracted files in plugin folder to the inkscape\share\extensions\ folder. Maker sure you are not running Inkscape or you will not see it in the extension menu. Once done start Inkscape and you should see it appear in the extension menu. I hope this helps you.
I solved the problem for now.
You can see the result in the "Christmas theme laser engraving works awards collect 12.7 - 12.24".
I converted the jpg with Corel Photopaint to b/w-bitmap.
The conversion of the details was much better than with the path conversion from Inkscape.
I cutted the picture with the mask function in three pieces with the same hight and a small overlap.
There were no problems to open the bitmaps with EleksCam.
I had to choose the outline mode and set the same hight for all three pieces an the job was done
without further problems. the fit of the pieces was perfect.
Nonetheless it would be interesting to know what exactly happens in Inkscape when you cut out a
piece of a picture, save it as a new picture and there is still the whole original picture like a "invisible ghost"
in the background.
