LightBurn Workshop


Materials Fee $5

January 15th from 5:00pm – 7:00pm

LightBurn is layout, editing, and control software for your laser cutter. LightBurn is an improvement over the standard RD Works software that comes with the BOSS Laser. It provides much more power and control over your creations plus it’s much easier to use.

With LightBurn you can:

  • Import artwork in a variety of common vector graphic and image formats (including AI, PDF, SVG, DXF, PLT, PNG, JPG, GIF, BMP)
  • Arrange, edit, and even create new vector shapes within the editor, with powerful features like offsetting, Boolean operations, welding, and node editing
  • Apply settings like power, speed, number of passes, cut order, brightness & contrast, dithering mode, and more
  • Build text in program, curve text, wave text
  • Explore camera-to-LightBurn capabilities and send the result directly to your laser cutter

In this workshop we will cover the basics of LightBurn and practice a few variables and cut/engrave a project for attendees to take home.

This is a workshop and not a badge/certification for the BOSS Laser.
