This site is about an Open Source laser engraver/cutter controller system, both hardware and software. Further info can be found on the [[Rationale and background]] page. The site was created in 2010 by Jaap Vermaas and Peter Brier, and is now being taken further with the help of many [[Contributors]].

A laser cutter consists of several components, further described on the [[Overview]] page - this site focuses on units such as the [[HPC LS3020]], in combination with the LAOS electronics. For a full list, see the [[Supported lasers]] so far. The current electronics are [[Mainboard v0.3]] and [[i2cpanel vx.x]] - older versions are listed at the end of this page.
