Lightburn Palettes and Swatches for Illustrator, Inkscape, Gimp, & CorelDRAW

Add Lightburn’s layer colors as swatches/palettes in your drawing applications


[fluentform id="3"]


These are files that you can import into your other drawing programs that will match Lightburn’s layer colors. These make designing for laser cutting a little bit easier because you can match your layers in your preferred drawing program to lightburn’s layers before you even import the file into lightburn. When you import your file into Lightburn with the correct layer color, Lightburn should automatically apply the corresponding cut/engrave layer to it.
