This video was taken on site at LasX Industries Inc. in December 2014 on a specially designed laser art system. http://www.lasx.com
The CAD file was developed in Illustrator by Andy Gikling and imported directly into LasX’s “Lightguide v5” laser control software as a PDF file. The real-time beam control is run on LasX’s “Proton” laser control platform.
The first half of the video features Proton running the laser system in a “raster” process. The second half of the video shows the laser running a “vector” process with at beam speed of 6 meters per second. There are upwards of 100 thousand vectors in the CAD file.
