Some nifty stuff in there. Is everything currently done on flat planes, or can it handle more advanced topologies too? eg irregular heights, curved pieces (4th/5th axes), etc? :)

Look through the whole art gallery. There are 3D laser engravings and spindle reliefs with shades painted on them using a laser there also.

PEP6 is capable of creating 4th axis rotary gcode files from images too.
