Surely there's an app...? (Software recommendations, please) Answered
So, I have this new HP Sprout that I totally wasn't expecting.
It's got a large touchscreen and this cool projector-scanner-touchmat combo that should be really useful for... something.
The first thing I actively want is to be able to create files for my laser cutter (running Lasercut5.3), just by drawing with fingertips or stylus. In my head, I see a version of Inkscape that works on the touchmat, but only responds to the stylus (to save weird lines from knuckles, elbows...). I have Inkscape downloaded, but it won't work with the touchmat.
Second, it would be nice to start learning how to create are actually 3d already, that could then become lasercut-able or 3d printable.
Again, it would be nice to use the full potential of the machine, so what software would you recommend?
Third... what? have you got any cool ideas?
On top of all this is the consideration of cost. Free would be nice - if you are a software developer, I don't mind having a go with Beta products (I'm known for breaking code, so if it can survive me...).
