What software and file types can I use with my laser machine?

All CTR laser machines come with laser software which can be used to design and/or import certain file types for laser cutting and laser engraving, so you don't need any external software.

If you already use a different software package for your design work, then the following file types (and more!) are compatible:

  • BMP - a bitmap file is used for engraving only (such as scanned pictures, photographs etc.
  • DXF - this popular vector file can be used for cutting and engraving.
  • AI - this vector file format can be used for cutting and engraving.

Please contact CTR if you have any other questions about file types and compatibility, or send us a file to check.
