I have not been able to find any information on the progress of the ability of raster engraving using the smoothieboard. I have spoke to other laser cutter operators and they can't consider smoothie board as it does not offer raster etching, so they keep to their proprietary control boards, OS and software :(
I would like to know where the community is at with this functionality. Is there a work around, using other open source software to create suitable g-codes, compatiable with smoothieboard.
If not, then what are the best next steps I can take, to enable this functionality? I will be ordering a 4XC as soon as they are available, I can code a little and have an appitite to develop my skills.
