  • I have been working with CNC routers and that logic will be similar. Technically such machines move a tool (router or laser for example) in a 2-dimensional XY surface from one X1Y1point to another point X2Y2.

But a high resolution A3 flatbed scanner could go higher at for example 16.5" x 2400 dpi so the software was then sometimes a limiting factor. Not sure what the situation is...
