DIY CNC Woodburning Photographs! – With Free Software!

DIY CNC Woodburning Photographs! - With Free Software!
A few weeks ago I had some success with attaching a wood burning tool to my CNC and doing some cool designs. Then I got to thinking about doing photographs when I stumbled onto some software that would convert an image to a raster and then speed up or slow down the side to side movement of the CNC. The results are pretty awesome after a lot of trial and error. This is still a work in progress but the software works, is free, and can do some really cool work. The software is called, “G-ray” and the latest version is 4.1 (although the software was written years ago)

The software link: http://hobbycncart.com/forum/46-234-1

There are some really cool pictures further down in the forum discussion.

Another discussion on it was found here: https://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php?topic=24776.0

Best of luck and do share your results!

  1. So do you need both of those files downloaded to work, or which one works best? I'm just a little sheepish about downloading stuff that's of a language I can't comprehend….thanks
