LightBurn v0.6.00 - new Trace Image feature!

We were going to wait on this for a little bit, but an important bug fix for one of our vendors was needed, and this was ready to go, so:

LightBurn now has a Trace Image feature!

We recently licensed the Potrace image tracing engine by Icosasoft (the same engine used by InkScape) and it's ready to go - take a look:

Images with transparency lose their outline, but we'll get that sorted shortly and it appears to be otherwise solid.

We felt the addition of image tracing has moved LightBurn a significant step closer to being "out of beta", so we've bumped up to v0.6.00.

Other changes:

  • Fixed a crash when bringing up the device settings with Emblaser 1 devices
  • Fixed small font spacing (text hinting offseting characters at small sizes)
  • Fixed a bug where GRBL wasn't reporting the Z height when using Get Position button
  • Increased allowable range of numeric scales to 9000%

As always, you can download it from our download page or use the "Check for Updates" feature in the app. Thank you for supporting LightBurn!


  • Hi, just bought your software and all good as far as I’ve got, I’ve just bought a new machine to run on Lightburn as I have an Apple iMac. Great computer but won’t install RD Works, why not I’m not sure, but I need to use the Rotery system asap, is there any way I can run this on my iMac. If not how soon will you have rotary system on your software program. Thanks in advance for any reply, kind regards Ray Massey.

  • I followed the Lightburn software from the beginning of the concept. It looked like it would be good. I downloaded the free trial and during the month, huge leaps were made and I bought a licence. The improvements keep coming thick and fast. It has to be one of the best £60 I have ever spent, and still 11 months of updates still to come! Thanks so much for your efforts and support guys. Lightburn rocks.
