This incredible laser art is called ‘After Sunset’ and it was filmed on site at LasX Industries Inc. A CAD file was developed in Illustrator by Andy Gikling and imported directly into LasX’s ‘Lightguide v5’ laser control software as a PDF file. The real-time beam control is run on LasX’s ‘Proton’ laser control platform. The first half of the video features Proton running the laser system in a ‘raster’ process. The second half of the video shows the laser running a ‘vector’ process with at beam speed of 6 meters per second. There are upwards of 100 thousand vectors in the CAD file.
