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 other [[Contributors]].

A laser cutter consists of several components, as described on [[How does a laser cutter work?|this page]] - this site focuses on units such as the [[HPC LS3020]], in combination with the LAOS electronics. For a full list, see the [[Laser Cutters|Supported lasers]] so far. The current electronics are [[LAOS Mainboard v0.5]] and [[LAOS I2C panel v0.4]] - older versions are listed on the [[Electronics]] page.
