@Vaughn Yes, I’m not sure how it would know how long it needs to laser to get the desired bend though? The g-code could certainly tell it to drop the Z by a certain amount (the wider kerf would define your bend radius?), set the power and cutting speed to specific values and make a certain number of passes, but I think you’d need to trial and error how many passes to make?
I’d be tempted to design a laser-cut fixture that the part folds around to make critical bends. Super interesting stuff.
