    Not really. Bitmaps don't produce as clean engravings as vectors do, plus they scale in size with no lack of detail.

    Haven't you got that the wrong way round? Bitmaps don't scale without interpolation. Vectors scale infinitely, with no loss of detail.

    I was commenting on how you take a vector, convert it to bitmap just to remove the gradient which would cause you problems - if you just removed the gradient from the original vector, you would negate having to do that whole process.

    If you need mixed cutting/engraving, you can solid-fill your vector shape with whatever colour is relevant to your engraving power..

    There is a Bodor distributor right here in the states, located in North Carolina. Its Novakon / Bodor laser. you can find them at CNC Machinery | Metal Machining | Novakon take a look at the laser tab, they sell CNC mills also. Ask for John. You save the trouble and all the hidden expenses of trying to import a machine yourself. And customer service is top shelf. The only thing I would add is a honey comb table for doing small and flexible parts.

    No rust on mine when it arrived... or now. No grease either. Of course, I'm not basing this on things I read on the internet. I bought a Bodor and found out for myself. It's been 4 years now.
