If the surface isn't flat, the map when viewed from one point will not

The vision model uses multiple dots , and it may (or may not) care whether
they are aligned or along a curve; my concern was that a tape pulled taut (in the test)
makes a linear array of those dots, but a gust of wind could disturb the tape
at time of application.
The Tape is applied to the wood being cut. It isn't just plastic.
It is for the laser to position the work onto the wood and drives
the internal computer to keep you on the internal drawing not one on the
Think painters tape. Snap one on like they did - both ends registration.
If your shop has so much flying about in the air to confuse the laser,
the laser won't locate the work on the wood and you will be dying of
lung issues. So don't sweat it.

OK. this link below answers several questions.
1. Can you accurately retrace to cut deeper? YES and modify
2. Do you need to draw with a separate CAD program? NO. You can draw
directly on the material and map the drawn lines or probably attach a
drawing to the work and trace the lines on a drawing.
And now you can put fancy designs into floors and other
materials. Smaller the cutter, the tighter the edges.
Might want to complete with a chisel to make perfect corners

The tool is also compatible with Sketchup.
And pre pricing apparently means you get the tool sooner than later at a
