Laser Slicer v0.8

I just put a very long overdue update to the Laser Slicer script in the 'Scripts' section. Changes in this update include:

  • Laser Slicer now sits in the 'Laser' tab for recent Blender versions. 
  • New options can place each slice in a separate file with the following positions:
    • Top left - slices are in the top left of each sheet
    • Staggered - slices are positioned on each sheet as if they were positioned on one sheet.
    • Centre - each slice appears at the centre of each sheet.
  • A cut thickness option to specify a gap between slices.
  • The number of slices that will be cut are now estimated so you can see if you have a long wait in front of you.
This is an initial version so bug reports are welcome and probably inevitable.

Below is an example of the svg output from slicing our Reverend Mother, Suzanne.

  1. Nice Ryan, I will check it out. I just bought a CNC so was looking back at your slicer. Glad you're still workin' it. :)
