Using alternative software to control the laser cutter (Scorchworks Whisperer)

Using alternative software to control the laser cutter (Scorchworks Whisperer)

In the final part of this series we finally start cutting things with the K40 laser cutter! We will transfer our designs created in Inkscape to an application called K40 Whisperer from Scorchworks. Now you might be thinking “But the K40 comes with its own software, can I just use that?” Well, yes you can, but I’ve found that K40 Whisperer is a lot easier to use, and it even runs on Linux devices. This is incredibly handy for my Makerspace as we are using an old Lenovo X61 laptop running Linux Mint to run the laser cutter.
