Re: Portraits to Paintings: Resources

I have an Epilog laser and the only software I have that they recommended when I bought it was CorelDRAWX3. They recommend Photograv but the cost is outrageous.

Re: Portraits to Paintings: Resources

have you installed the drivers and hooked up the usb or ethernet cable yet? and, i see from their manual that AutoCad will also work. it also says in the manual:
Quote:
Create your job in the graphics software of your choice, (for example –
CorelDraw). There are three different modes of operation for the laser and the
way you setup your artwork will determine if you raster engrave or vector cut.
which would make me think that paint shop pro, photoshop or any other software that allows for normal printing would work here. just make sure the drivers and any other software they include is installed and working. from your software, you have to choose your 'printer'. in your case it would be the epilog. when you hit 'print', rather than being sent to your normal inkjet printer (or whatever), the job will be sent to your epilog. if you cant find that option under your printer options, then most likely you havent installed the drivers or other required software.
