QR Code Stencil Pattern Generator

The Free Art and Technology Lab have released a free utility which converts QR Codes into vector based stencil patterns suitable for laser cutting. QR_STENCILER solves the Fred Trotter problem of stencil islands by automatically detecting them and bridging the stencil islands with thin lines that have a minimal effect on scanning (image below). The software runs on MacOSX 10.6.8. and is available under a Creative Commons copyright license.
