Few days ago I installed LightBurn and I must say that it is far more superior than RDworks. I have chinese laser cutter with RUIDA controller and I think that preview with all optimization possibilities put LightBurn as first choise as software for sending jobs to machine.
However, drawing possibilities are good but when I need to do some complex projects I like to do it in Corel Draw or Illustrator. That means that I need to save project in .ai or .dxf format because LightBurn has no native .cdr file support.
My question to developer is: Did you plan to add support for corel draw files?
Also, it would be great to have plugins for most popular vector drawing applications, for easy importing to LightBurn without unnecessarily saving file locally and opening manually in LightBurn. I don’t know is it possible to make VBA plugin for LightBurn if LightBurn is not “prepared” for importing from third party applications?
I will continue to use LightBurn until trial period expires, and if I find some interesting proposals for new features, I will share my opinions here. With importing from corel option, I will buy licence for sure. For now, RDworks plugin do the job, because I’m able to instantly send everything from corel to RDworks in single click.
You made a great peace of software.
