The old laser decided to vanish in the mail, so I got a new one. Works great!

Now on to making motor mounts in acrylic and tinkering with the smoke extraction.

I switched g-code generator to DXF2GCODE so I had to adjust the program a bit, but it was well worth it since it produces much nicer shapes than the InkScape plugin i used previously.
