ILD Render

Turn your Blender animations and Inkscape drawings into laser graphics !

Laser

What does ILD Render do?


ILD Render is a tool for creating laser graphics (ILDA files) from Blender and Inkscape.
It consists of the actual ILD Render application and plugins for Blender and Inkscape
It is designed for a fast and straightforward workflow, just press render in Blender or export in Inkscape and you instantly see the graphics in ILD Render and your laser projector.
Also when you change optimization settings in ILD Render you will see the changes immediately on the projector.
ILD Render inherits the layers from Blender/Inkscape and can optimize every layer differently.
It's possible to assign layers to different projectors in case your scene is too complex for one projector.

Requirements

- Microsoft Windows

- Blender 2.80 & up

or

- Inkscape 0.92 & up
