    Jacob,

    Be aware that some lasers must operate in cooler environments than others. I believe at least the Epilogs must be operated in somewhere in the 70Fs. If your converted garage isn't A/Ced,...

    William,

    Scott,

    I agree what others have said about Corel Draw. The only caveat is that you may want to check with Ray about what version of Corel Draw will work well with the laser.

    Dirk,

    How large would your largest items be? Need to know to determine approximate bed size.

    Would you need to do any/much engraving or mostly/completely cutting?

    A thick line first leads me to thinking that you are out of focus. Try raising or lowering your bed.

    Nicolas,

    I've not yet tried inlay, but this has been a question of mine. How do you compensate for the beam size?

    Robert,

    I believe there is a separate driver for the SoftDog and there may even be a specific order to install it. Initial setup on a LaserCut-driven system is definitely a pain. If you're still...
