I have a laser photoplotter I built a long time ago to make
circuit board artwork. It does 1000 x 1000 DPI via a raster
process, wrapping the film around a drum. After moving all
the conversion software over to Linux, it occurred to me
that it might not be hard to convert some raw pixel image
format produced by one of the PostScript converters to the
format for my photoplotter. it was about a one hour
exercise to get it working!
Not exactly a one button operation to get images, what with
all the darkroom processing, but I might use it some day. I
mostly use it now to make solder stencils for board
