First round of news... The MoshiDraw software you *must* use SUCKS

So people know. Graphics are at 1000 dpi, exactly. If you want a 2" wide image, make it a one bit color image that is 2000 dots wide.

Doing some internet snooping reveals some interesting tidbits on just how much people hate Moshidraw, and just how fairly easy it is to replace actually. A Google of Moshidraw replacement yielded nice results.

The issue is... this is the "new and improved" version of the engraver. It uses a USB connection, and the data is encrypted.

If you find something that will replace MoshiDraw V9.9, I am all ears

Mostly what I've seen is people replacing the controller entirely (with a 3-axis CNC controller, go figure), and running LinuxCNC. They mentioned a USB dongle, which I assume is what you have.

Yep on all counts...

I would like to test out a LAOS board from Laser Open Source (LAOS) Unfortunately, no online price

No. Don't go to a cnc controller. Converting artwork into g-code is a waste of your life.

Ok... First the good news... This thing cuts plastic, paper and glass like noboby's business!

Bad news... The USB will not recognize the engraver as existing

The reset to home works. The laser works. The software... "works", but I can not figure out the deal with the USB hook up.

If anyone has the USB driver for a Moshidraw board, v4.1, I could use a copy
