    What kind of cutting? You can cut with a laser. Or do you want to engrave something that you can't cut with a laser? If so, then it's easier to just cut them on a milling machine, then place and engrave on another. Another option would be to put a laser next to a router.

    At the end of the day, you can laser with a milling machine, but you can't mill with a laser cutter.

    What software are you using? In LaserWeb 4 I use an operation for raster engraving and then an operations for cutting the outline.
