This post is a brief alert to announce the final (updated, v.1.1) release of the F.A.T. Lab’s QR_STENCILER software. This tool is a free, fully-automated utility that converts QR codes into vector-based stencil patterns suitable for laser-cutting. The QR_STENCILER is described in full detail in our 19 July blog post.

The newest version of the QR_STENCILER adds the following functionality:

- Options allowing
*both*black-on-white and white-on-black (“reverse”) stenciling; - A graphical user interface with checkboxes and sliders from the ControlP5 library;
- Rounded corner options (including both circular arcs and Bezier curves);
- Precompiled executables for Mac OSX, Windows and Linux;
- Vector path simplification for improved lasercutting.

Moreover, the QR_STENCILER can now be downloaded from the following 3 locations:

**As a ZIP file From the F.A.T. Lab website**(Version 1.1, 3 August 2011, 15MB), including compiled Mac/Win/Linux applications.**As a Java applet on OpenProcessing.org**. This is primarily for pedagogic purposes and quick reference, as the in-browser Java virtual machine does not permit the exporting of stencil PDFs.**As a code repository on Github**. Any future updates to this project will be found there.

Thank you for your interest in this project, and happy stenciling.

*The F.A.T. Lab staff*
