We use Corel Draw software with a plugin to control the laser, so your 2D vector files can be in DXF, SVG, or CDR format.  Bitmap files for engraving can be in pretty much any common image format.

In practise, the machine cuts and engraves up to 970x380mm, cutting wood up to 10mm thick, plastics, paper, card and most textiles.  We have successfully engraved glass and mirrors.
