Hi John,

You need the MDE 2003 v7 with .NET framework.
I don't think this is a current product anymore but it appears on ebay, quite cheaply, every now and again.

Hi Russ,

Thinking back on some of my fishing trips, I may have told the odd one or two hip boots but never told any chest waders.  ;D ;D

When using the Impact / Laser Engraving plugin, I have found that the initial preparation of the image or photo is key to success. A free program which has just come to my attention is FotoSketcher by David Thoiron. http://www.fotosketcher.com/download.htm
(When installing use the advanced options unless you want to install the unwanted toolbars etc or else download the portable version).
This program is capable of producing some quite stunning results and in some ways can be better than the Photochop plugin I have been using to date.

Especially FREE tools   ;)

There are many different types of art and I am not sure if this qualifies or not. It is a computer generated "etch-a sketch" saved as a .dxf then as GCode. I must admit that I have seen better laser engravings but as I am in no way "artistic" this is perhaps a start.  ;D
