CAD system integration and custom file converters enable flexible, laser manufacturing from customer-provided data. Although most file types are accepted, the preferred file types for laser marking are Gerber, DXF, or other 2D formats. When providing data for laser marking of logos or images the preferred format would be a vector format EPS, AI (Adobe Illustrator) or Corel Draw file. JPEGs and BMPs and other image formats are not preferred as additional programming charges may occur.
