    I have a Boss Laser and I want to add it as a (printer/cutter/engraver) to Flexi. Has anyone had any success? What profile in Flexi? I know I can go from Corel to it so there must be a way.

    Hmmm. Looks like it is not part of Sai or Flexi but a separate program based on Flexi??

    Chinese lasers typically go: Design Software -> Laser Software -> Laser.

    So you should absolutely be able to do your design work in Flexi (or any software really) and then import it into whatever Laser software Boss provides.

    You'll have do design in flexi then export it as a dxf file. That file can then be imported into the Boss Laser Works program. Laser Works has no feature to set it up as a printer driver.

    Boss uses Ruida controllers I believe, and Laserworks is the same as RDworks which I use. I design in Flexi and then send to the laser program as an .ai file and prep it from there. There is no bridge for Flexi like there is for Corel but it is not much of a problem for me. If you are just getting started with the Laser I would consider LightBurn softwarew which is far superior to RDworks.
