Using a Diode Laser and CNC router to laser etch lines on 3D topographic map

Could you use the print and cut in Lightburn?

Sorry for the late response- busy week. No, I took a height map (in this case, SRTM satellite imagery) and turned it into a 3D file. From my experimentation, a 7W diode laser, 50-100% @ 1000mm/min gives a nice line that isn’t too deep and looks clean and continuous without any discontinuities.

Maybe- I’m brand new to LightBurn and haven’t tried, yet…
