Fabricate almost anything in just a few steps. Create or pick a pattern, a photo, a drawing, a vector image – anything you want! Just choose the size and the position in the design section of the program.”
“OKU Desk laser engraver includes its own version of Inkscape, a free design software. You can create ambitious projects easily as well as edit files from other programs such as AutoCAD, Illustrator, CorelDraw, etc. Paper, wood, cardboard, fabric, felt, leather, and many other organic materials. If the material is too thick to cut in a single pass, OKU Desk will go through it again until the cut is complete. The maximum cutting thickness is 20 mm.”

We believe in facilitating access to digital manufacturing processes with open code tools and educational content, which help many inexperienced users easily make the most out of these technologies.
