    yes, get inkscape or adobe illustrator or corel draw, create vector graphics, export as DXF, then import into the software that comes with the laser. You can do very basic stuff on the lasers software too, I use it for quick jobs all the time

    Don't use a lot of the other software mentioned but inkscape has many plugins that tend to be missed, but I use inkscape to generate G-code directly for my engraver/cutter powerful program once you get to know your way around and its free.

    Remember to treat temperature of coolant as essential if not fitterd fit a thermal cut out to coolant system, and use minimum required power to maximise tube life, 30 minute running hot or over driven can kill the tubes. Also buy the laser quality MDF and PLY as they cut easilly compared to standard products also maintaining tube life.
