Thanks! Share it with your friends!


While I’m waiting for parts to arrive I thought it would be a good idea to do a quick video on the basics of CO2 Laser Cutters. I briefly cover the topics.
What is a Laser Cutter; How does it work; What types of material can it cut; Why you want to DIY Build your own; What’s happening in the next video.

Louis Liguore says:

Can a laser cut material in multiple passes allowing the focus point to be moved down with each pass. This would make cutting thicker material more feasible.

For 6 minutes talking without really showing who it works? Plz include with demo, with a real piece material

Christian resources says:

Couldn't you add a Z-axis to the focus head and cut a shallow cut then back up lower the Z-axis and cut deeper… a long focal lenght would be bennifical…

Meriem Nadjla Drabla says:

Very informative, but i have a question though… Does the CO2 cutting machine cut a 1mm plate of silver or gold for example? If the power of the machine is 50w?
And what machine do you recommend for that (cutting 1mm plate of silver or gold)? I want to start my jewelry business and i am a little bit lost 🙄

I am waiting for the day I can buy or make a laser cutter in the form of a "hedge trimmer". One that won't start the hedge on fire. Am I dreaming from another planet ??
